Duan’s award will help fund his research into replicating cell-to-cell communication. He is one of the 35 YFA awardees this year and will receive close to $500,000 from DARPA over the next two years to pursue his project and he could receive an additional $500,000 based on the progress of the project.
A novel four-step process has been developed by researchers including Assistant Professor Tommaso Ranzani (ME) and Assistant Professor Sheila Russo (ME) to construct microfluidic origami for reconfigurable pneumatic/hydraulic (MORPH) systems. Their work, published in Advanced Materials, details the process and demonstrates its capabilities with the fabrication of a highly complex soft structure.
Only three percent of members become fellows and to be nominated and elected, a member must meet qualifications in at least one of nine categories; Zhang was chosen for her accomplishments in the research and education categories.
Assistant Professor James Bird (ME, MSE) was recognized by the American Society for Engineering Educators in the summer edition of Prism magazine as one of 20 high-achieving researchers and educators under 40.
With the development of a DIY framework named eVOLVER, Assistant Professor Ahmad ‘Mo’ Khalil (BME) is hoping to disrupt a longstanding experimental compromise. The work has been published online and is scheduled to appear as the cover story of the July issue of Nature Biotechnology.
