Work to focus on developing wireless networking systems for deep-tissue micro-implants .
Fadel Adib, assistant professor at the MIT Media Lab and founding director of the Signal Kinetics research group, received one of the National Science Foundation's (NSF) CAREER Awards. The CAREER program offers the NSF's most prestigious awards in support of early-career faculty who have the potential to serve as academic role models in research and education, and to lead advances in the mission of their department or organization.
The award will support Adib's research on "Wireless Sensing for In Vivo Medical Device." This research will enable a new generation of networked micro-implants that can actively contribute to human health and wellbeing.
