Professor Herr receives this honor for Current and Breakthrough Research in the Field of Electro-Driven Separations. “Dr. Herr’s use of IEF on samples from single cells to discriminate between protein isoforms differing by a single charge has inspired many scientists, both utilizing and building upon using relatively simple designs that give powerful performance.”
Professor John Dueber’s lab has advanced two steps closer to cleaning up the dirty production of indigo dyes. Using synthetic biology they have done away with the wasteful chemical synthesis of indigo, and removed the damaging bleaching stage that converts indigo to leucoindigo.
IEEE Spectrum talks with Professor Amy Herr, founder of Berkeley’s Hacking for Impact course, about the non-technical challenges of pursuing impact.
Bioengineering and EECS professor Steven Conolly is building a new kind of medical diagnostic technology called magnetic particle imaging (MPI).
Professor Emeritus and Founding Chair of Bioengineering, Dr. Thomas Budinger, will receive the 2018 Medal for Innovations in Healthcare Technology from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. Professor Budinger is being honored for his “pioneering contributions to tomographic radiotracer imaging,” one of his many contributions to the field of medical imaging.
The Open Philanthropy Project awarded a grant of $5 million over five years to support research on the basic biology of aging-related diseases and impairments, led by Dr. Irina Conboy.
Published in Science today, a review article by Prof. Michael Yartsev on the current decline in the diversity of species used for neuroscience research. The field has converged on a few selected model organisms, but Yartsev proposes that neuroscience might be ready to diversify again, if provided the appropriate support.
Professor Michael Yartsev has been awarded one of only 18 prestigious 2017 Packard Fellowship for Science and Engineering, to pursue new research into how our brains developed the ability to acquire language.
Professor Amy Herr has been recognized by the City of Berkeley as a Berkeley Visionary for her leadership in innovation, citizenship, and vision. One of only three awardees, Herr is known for her dedication to improving lives through science, technology, engineering and math research and education.
