NAE Awards Early Career Engineers Aydogan Ozcan and Ali Khademhosseini a Grainger Grant
Associate Professors Aydogan Ozcan and Ali Khademhosseini (of Harvard University) received a Grainger Foundation Frontiers of Engineering Grants for Advancement of Interdisciplinary Research. Together they shall collaborate and explore integration of their cutting –edge research of a computational lens-free imaging platform for high-throughput screening of cells providing inexpensive device for drug discovery and biological science experimentation.
Other awardees are Michelle Povinelli (University of Southern California) and Roman Stocker (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) for the development of nanophotonic tools focused on measuring motile behavior of microorganisms in response to applied stress.
NAE through its Frontier of Engineering program brings together outstanding early career engineers to discuss pioneering technical work in various engineering fields and industry sectors. Their goal is to foster networking, integration and technology exchange among future interdisciplinary engineering leaders. The Grainger Foundation Frontiers of Engineering Grants fund the selected participants from US-based institutions at the Frontier of Engineering symposia to pursue interdisciplinary research.
