Wyss Institute at Harvard University announces election of 2 faculty to Natl Academy of Inventors
Date:12/10/2013

fus Prize in the Chemical Sciences for his creation of new materials that have significantly advanced the field of chemistry and its societal benefits. He has also received the Priestley Medalthe highest honor bestowed by the American Chemical Societyand the Benjamin Franklin Medal in Chemistry for his pioneering research in molecular self-assembly and innovative nanofabrication techniques. He also received the President's National Medal of Science, and is a member of the National Academy of Sciences and a Fellow of numerous societies.

In addition to his Wyss Core Faculty position, David Edwards - one of the youngest members ever elected to the US and French National Academies of Engineering - is also the Gordon McKay Professor of the Practice of Idea Translation at Harvard's School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS). Edwards combines the logic of science with the creativity of art to develop technological advances, design solutions, and creative partnerships around the world. He founded and directs Le Laboratoire in Paris that is also soon to open a new branch in Cambridge, MA, which brings artists and scientists together to develop new innovations, often engaging Edwards and his students in the context of his Wyss Institute research. Among Edwards' new innovations in recent years are: a packaging platform for food and beverage products that avoids plastic and other damaging materials, inspired by fruits and vegetables; a platform for delivering nutrition via the air for better healthcare, including chocolate without calories, and vitamins and supplements without pills; and the oPhone, a new platform for delivering complex olfactory signals for healthcare, entertainment, and global communications.

The Wyss Institute also supports Edwards' Idea Translation program at Harvard an innovation "bootcamp" for college students that offers a new model of experimental learning, and commercializes their ideas into products with social benefit.
