Members of Congress, university leaders, scientists launch ScienceWorksForUS

er NSF grant to develop fundamental tools to predict the behavior of molecules and materials that will contribute to the development of energy efficient vehicles as well as support efforts to use alternative fuel sources. One such tool will be used to design lightweight metal alloys for use in fuel-efficient vehicles, while another will optimize the use of renewable liquid biofuels for transportation.

Also on hand to discuss his ARRA funded research was Jin Kang, professor and chair of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Johns Hopkins University. Kang specializes in lasers and optical fiber. With the support of stimulus funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), he is building a tool to help brain surgeons locate and get a clear look at cancerous tissue. In some cases, he says, this device could eliminate the need to cut into the brain for a traditional biopsy. "The idea," he says, "is to provide instant high-resolution pictures of a small segment of the brain without actually touching the tissue. These pictures could let the doctor conduct a 'virtual biopsy' to see where the tumor is and whether it is benign or malignant. And when it's time to cut out the cancer, these images could help a surgeon see and avoid healthy tissue."

Other participants in today's event included: Steven Fluharty, vice provost for research at the University of Pennsylvania; Michael Pazzani, vice president for research and graduate and professional education at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey; and Caroline C. Whitacre, vice president for research at The Ohio State University. They described the impact of ARRA research funding on their campuses and provided their perspectives as scientists about what might be possible as a result of the infusion of ARRA funding in specific fields of science and medicine. Fluharty is a professor of pharmacology, psychology and neuroscience. Pazzani is a professor of computer science
