Two LAS Professors Make ‘Scientific American’ Top 50

Scientific American magazine recently named two LAS professors among its SciAM 50, which recognizes outstanding technological leadership by 50 individuals, teams, or companies in research, business, or policymaking each year.

Jeffrey Moore, the Murchison-Mallory Professor of Chemistry, and Robert Ghrist, professor of mathematics, were among those honored by the prestigious science magazine in its January 2008 issue. Moore was part of a U of I team honored for its development of self-healing material, while Ghrist was recognized for using mathematical tools to solve key problems with networks of randomly distributed sensors.
