Steve Conolly, Associate Professor of Bioengineering at UC Berkeley, was selected to deliver one of the Lillian M. Gilbreth Lectures for Young Engineers at the 2006 meeting of the National Academy of Engineering in Irvine, California.
The Gilbreth Lecture, named in honor of the first woman inducted into the NAE, was established in 2001 as a means of recognizing outstanding young engineers and bringing their work to the attention of the NAE membership. The award is given to the best speakers voted by attendees of the NAE Frontiers of Engineering meetings, a distinguished group of young engineers exploring leading-edge developments in several fields of engineering. Conolly spoke about Small MRI Scanners, and was one of three Gilbreth Lecturers at the 2006 meeting.
