Obama to Nominate Suresh as Next NSF Director

Abstract:
U.S. President Barack Obama announced Thursday, June 3 that he intends to nominate Subra Suresh, dean of the MIT School of Engineering, to serve as the next director of the National Science Foundation. If confirmed by the U.S. Senate, Suresh, the Vannevar Bush Professor of Engineering at MIT, would be appointed to a six-year term as director.

Trained as a mechanical engineer, Suresh has made dramatic contributions to a range of fields in engineering and science. He has expanded his research interests to encompass materials, nanotechnology and the life sciences, and has most recently done extensive work on the red blood cell and its nanobiomechanical properties as they influence a variety of diseases. Suresh has made significant advances and created a range of new experimental methodologies to unravel the inner workings of such diseases as malaria.
