Institute Professor of Science Ivar Giaever '64 and Charles Keese '71, senior research scientist in biology, have their patented ECIS 100 (Electric Cell-substrate Impedance Sensing) device featured in the July 2001 issue of Biomedicalproducts. ECIS is an electronic petri dish that provides online, computer-guided analysis of living cells. The system has been used exclusively to monitor the activities of living cells using electric fields too weak to be detected by the cells. In the newer version advertised in the magazine, a module has been added that uses high electric fields to deliberately alter the cells.

William Gill, Russell Sage Distinguished Research Professor of Chemical
Engineering, is featured in "Opening the Black Box," a feature story in the July issue of Pollution Engineering.

Michael Shur, professor of electrical, computer, and systems engineering, was elected member-at-large of the U.S. National Committee of the International Union of Radio Science (USNC-URSI). He will serve in this capacity from 2002 through 2004, and will provide rank-and-file member representation for the group.
