inal cord injuries. He has approximately 800 issued and pending patents worldwide that have been licensed to over 250 pharmaceutical, chemical, biotechnology and medical device companies.

Langer has received over 210 major awards including the Charles Stark Draper Prize (considered the equivalent of the Nobel Prize for engineers), the Millennium Prize (world's largest technology prize), the Lemelson-MIT prize (world's largest prize for invention), and has been inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame. He is one of very few people elected to all three U.S. National Academies (National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering and Institute of Medicine) and the youngest to receive this distinction.

In 2002, Forbes Magazine selected Langer as one of the 15 innovators worldwide who will "reinvent our future." Time Magazine and CNN in 2001 named him as one of the 100 most important people in America and one of the 18 top people in science or medicine in America (America's Best). In 2004, Parade Magazine selected Langer as one of 6 "Heroes whose research may save your life."

Leroy Hood, president of the Institute for Systems Biology, is a pioneer whose research has focused on the study of molecular immunology, biotechnology and genomics. At Caltech, he and his colleagues developed instruments that paved the way for the successful mapping of the human genome. Hood also holds the rare distinction of being a member of all three U.S. National Academies. He is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Lasker Award, the Kyoto Prize, the Heinz Award, and the NAE 2011 Fritz J. and Delores H. Russ Prize for automating DNA sequencing that revolutionized biomedicine and forensic science. He has played a role in founding more than 14 biotech companies, has published over 700 peer reviewed articles, and holds 36 patents.
