PALO ALTO, Calif., Sept. 30, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Foresight Institute, a leading think tank, research, and public
Established in 1993 and named in honor of pioneer physicist Richard Feynman, these prestigious prizes honor researchers whose recent work has most advanced the achievement of Feynman's goal for nanotechnology: the construction of atomically-precise products through the use of productive nanosystems.
Lulu Qian, Professor of Bioengineering and head of The Qian Lab at the Division of Biology and Biological Engineering at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), received the 2019 Foresight Institute Feynman Prize for Experimental work.
Professor Qian has made major contributions to three areas:
Her goal, with members of the Caltech Qien Lab, is to create synthetic molecular programs that approach the complexity and sophistication of life itself.
Giulia Galli, Liew Professor of Electronic Strictures and Simulation, Senior Scientist at Argonne National Laboratory, and Head of the Galli Group in the Pritzker Schoo of Molecular Engineering at the University of Chicago received the 2019 Foresight Institute Feynman Prize for Theory.
The contributions of Galli to devising atomically-precise products through the use of molecular machine systems have been two-fold:
The methods pioneered by Galli include
About the Foresight Institute The Foresight Institute is a leading think tank and public interest organization focused on transformative future technologies. Founded in 1986, its mission is to discover and promote the upsides, and help avoid the potential drawbacks, of nanotechnology, artificial intelligence, biotechnology, and similar life-changing developments.
