Dr. David Lemberg
Host - Science and Society

San Diego, CA | Posted on October 22, 2006

Dr. David Lemberg, Executive Producer of "Science and Society" announces the show schedule for Friday, 10/06/06, 1PM to 2PM Pacific.

Of particular interest to Nanotechnology Now readers are interviews with:

  • Dr. Gary Fedder, Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Director, Institute for Complex Engineered Systems, Carnegie Mellon University
  • Dr. Steven Salzberg, Director, Center for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology, and Horvitz Professor of Computer Science, University of Maryland
  • Susan Hassler, Editor-in-Chief, IEEE Spectrum

Professor Gary Fedder's research interests are in the multidisciplinary area of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). Current research activities include micro-sensor and micro-actuator design; microrobotic control and manipulation; embedded microinstruments; and nanometer-scale, probe-based data storage.

Dr. Steven Salzberg discusses the spread, evolution, transmissibility and pathogenicity of H5N1 avian flu, and the Global Initiative on Sharing Avian Influenza Data. Dr. Salzberg also discusses stem cell research and activities of the Maryland Stem Cell Commission.

Susan Hassler discusses the recent IEEE Fellows Survey on the impact of science and technology on life in the next 50 years, reported in the September 2006 IEEE Spectrum. Key themes included "computation and bandwidth to burn," "sensory transformation," "lightweight infrastructure," and "extending biology."
