Professor Rob Phillips, one of the core Bioengineering faculty members is among the first nine recipients of the Pioneer Award from the National Institutes of Health. The Director's Pioneer Award will provide Phillips with $2.5 million in funding for the next five years as part of the NIH's new "Roadmap for Medical Research" program. Phillips, an authority on the nanoscale mechanics of biological systems, says he will use the funding to enter into novel research areas. NIH Director's Pioneer Award is designed to support individual scientists and thinkers with highly innovative ideas and approaches to contemporary challenges in biomedical research.

Professor Mory Gharib has been selected for the Pollak Distinguished Lecturer Award for 2004/2005. The Israel Pollak Distinguished Lecture Series was established at the Technion (Israel Institute of Technology) in 1996. Two Pollak Lecturers are chosen each year from all areas of science and engineering. Previous recipients of this honor have included Sir John Thomas of Cambridge University (England), Professor Juergen Troe, Director of the Max Planck Institute, Goettingen, Germany, Steven Weinberg (Nobel Laureate 1979).
Connections, Foundations, and Edges: Connecting Theory & Applications Across Complex Systems, a Celebration to Mark John Doyle's 50th Birthday, July (14) 15-16 (17), 2004. This two-day symposium is designed to bring together experts in mathematics, physics, biology, and networking in an interactive exchange of ideas on the design, analysis, and control of complex systems. The symposium was preceded by a one-day tutorial (Wednesday, July 14), given by Professor Doyle, consisting of his first attempt to present a new unified theory of complex systems and networks that builds on and integrates methods from controls, dynamical systems, information theory, computational complexity, optimization, and statistical and quantum physics. It was followed by a day of student talks (Saturday, July 17). Full details may be found on the website.
