Sofie de Olazarra awarded a Bio-X Stanford Interdisciplinary Graduate Fellowship!

Congratulations to Sofie de Olazarra for receiving a 2021 Bio-X Stanford Interdisciplinary Graduate Fellowship!

The Stanford Interdisciplinary Graduate Fellowship is one of the greatest honors Stanford bestows upon doctoral students pursuing interdisciplinary research. As a Bio-X SIGF Fellow, Sofie will continue working at the crossroads of biology and electrical engineering in order to develop technology for the benefit of human health.

Rahul Lall is honored with 2021 Terman Award for Academic Achievement!

We are thrilled to learn that Rahul Kartikeya Lall, a senior in Electrical Engineering, has been selected as a recipient of this year’s Frederick Emmons Terman Award for academic achievement in engineering. This award is presented to only the top 30 students of each year’s senior engineering class. Hearty congratulations, Rahul! Rahul is completing an honor thesis with Prof. Wang, and will enroll in the PhD program of UC Berkeley.

Congratulations to Dr. Jared Nesvet!

Congratulations to Jared Nesvet for successfully defending his dissertation on Giant Magnetoresistive Nanosensor Analysis of Circulating Tumor DNA for Therapy Response Monitoring and Early Detection of Cancer!  His PhD degree is awarded in Chemistry.  Jared continues his research as a postdoctoral scholar with Prof. Juan Santiago in the Mechanical Engineering Department.  Good luck with your run in the XPrize COVID-19 competition, Jared!

Dr. Sam Gambhir, pioneer in molecular imaging and early detection of cancer, and long-time collaborator of the Wang Group, passed away at 57 on July 18, 2020

We will not meet another visionary leader who works and dedicates his life to science like Sam in our lifetimes.  But, we will continue his work, even just a fraction of it, and we promise our work will honor his memory.  Indeed, Dr. Gambhir’s legacy will live on forever.
