Every year the National Academy of Engineering brings together an emerging set of engineering leaders in its “Frontiers of Engineering” program. Doug Densmore, assistant professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at BU, and a Junior Faculty Fellow of the Hariri Institute, was one of 81 engineers selected for this year’s symposium. Prof. Densmore, a leader in the emerging area of synthetic biology, was nominated by BU President Robert A. Brown, who said, “The National Academy of Engineering invites the brightest young researchers from across the country to attend the U.S. Frontiers of Engineering symposium, Dr. Densmore belongs in this group; he is a very promising researcher who is engaged in important cross-disciplinary work.”
