Congratulations to four Media Lab students, who have received 2022 MIT Presidential Fellowship awards.
The device detects the same molecules that cell receptors do, and may enable routine early screening for cancers and other diseases.
We're so proud of everything you've accomplished here, and can't wait to see what you do next.
