E&S Magazine Now Online!
The winter 2011 issue of Caltech's Engineering and Science magazine, which focuses on Caltech's impact on clinical medicine, is now available on newsstands and online. The cover offers a glimpse into the myriad ways Caltech scientists are investigating and finding answers to the most difficult questions about the human body. The nervous system, autism, molecular structure, and organ tissue are all subjects of study for researchers seeking to better understand medical, biomedical, and biotechnological challenges, and their work is advancing vital research from laboratory benches to patients' bedsides.
This issue profiles Ralph Adolphs' exploration of autism and Yu-Chong Tai's work to build implantable neural devices. Bioengineering research is also on display, with articles on insights into molecular programming from Richard Murray, efforts to build nature-inspired pumps in Mory Gharib's lab, and David Tirrell's work to develop lifelike artificial tissues. A focus on the historical impact Caltech alumni have made in translational medicine further reinforces Caltech's ongoing influence in emerging fields and its commitment to advancing the frontiers of science beyond the laboratory.
