Carnegie Mellon's Philip LeDuc participates in think tank forums
Date:11/11/2008

y with both scientific and commercial applications. He is using cell and molecular inspired approaches for developing new technology, probing cell and molecular biomechanics for understanding diseases, and pursuing computational methods to understand molecular behavior.

"By better understanding how cells communicate and how they use inherent systems such as feedback and redundancy to keep the cell in operation, we can begin to harness the cell's natural abilities, which may translate into exciting future technologies or approaches to fight diseases," LeDuc said.

His other accolades include winning the prestigious National Science Foundation Career Award, publishing a number of research articles in prestigious journals like Nature, Nature Nanotechnology and NanoLetters, and being a co-founder and head of missionary work in Ghana, Africa.

Prior to coming to Carnegie Mellon in 2002, LeDuc was a fellow at Harvard Medical School and Children's Hospital, where he spent time building multidisciplinary efforts between groups in biology, engineering, physics and chemistry.
