Three University of Illinois professors have been elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, one of the longest-standing honorary societies in the nation. Physics professor Taekjip Ha, psychology professors J. Kathryn Bock and Gary S. Dell will join other new members in an induction ceremony in October in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Illinois biological physicists Taekjip Ha and Yann Chemla have combined two cutting-edge laboratory techniques that together directly get at the structure-function relationship in proteins. Ha, who co-directs the Center for the Physics of Living Cells at Illinois, is well recognized for his innovative single molecule fluorescence microscopy and spectroscopy techniques. Chemla is a top expert in optical trapping techniques. Their combined method—simultaneous fluorescence microscopy and optical trapping—yields far more definitive answers to questions relating structure to function than either technique could independently. - See more at: http://engineering.illinois.edu/news/article/10947#sthash.MlLhKbtD.dpuf
The inclusion of engineering ideas and approaches makes medicine a quantitative and systems-based discipline that facilitates precision diagnostics and therapeutics to improve health care delivery for all.
