Professor Chris Monroe has been named by Scientific American magazine as a Research Leader within the 2006 Scientific American 50 – the magazine’s prestigious annual list recognizing outstanding acts of leadership in science and technology from the past year.
Said Editor-In-Chief John Rennie: “The Scientific American 50 pays tribute to individuals and organizations who, through their efforts in research, business, and policy-making, are driving advances in science and technology that lay the groundwork for a better future. Not only does our list honor these prime movers – it shines a spotlight on the critical fields that are benefiting from their achievements.”
Selected by the magazine’s Board of Editors with the help of distinguished outside advisors, the Scientific American 50 spotlights a Research Leader of the Year, a Business Leader of the Year, and a Policy Leader of the Year. The list also recognizes research, business, and policy leaders who have played a critical role driving key science and technology trends over the last year in fields including robotics, genetics, Alzheimer’s research, nanotechnology, and more.
The Scientific American 50 appeared in the magazine’s December 2006 issue. The complete list may be accessed on the magazine’s website here and more information about Professor Monroe’s work can be found here.
