In public lecture at MIT, former dean describes progress in understanding malaria.
MIT’s dean of engineering has been confirmed by the United States Senate to direct the largest supporter of non-medical basic-science research in the country
U.S. President Barack Obama announced Thursday that he intends to nominate Subra Suresh, dean of the MIT School of Engineering, to serve as the next director of the National Science Foundation.
MIT Dean of Engineering Subra Suresh has made understanding malaria - its effect on red blood cells, its diagnosis, and future methods of treatment - a top priority of his research group.
Interview with the dean of the College of Engineering at MIT, Subra Suresh, new Doctor Honoris Causa from UPM and, currently, one of the most prestigious researchers worldwide.
LORD Corporation – a global leader in developing passive and active solutions for noise and vibration, engineered adhesives and high performance coatings for the aerospace, automotive and general industrial markets – has announced that Subra Suresh has joined its Board of Directors.
The Technical University of Madrid grants Professor Subra Suresh the doctorate honoris causa in recognition of his pioneering scientific contributions at the boundaries between materials engineering, mechanics, physics, biology and medicine.
Analysis of unique deep-sea mollusk offers insights into design of armor for soldiers and vehicles. Tiny snails sitting on the ocean floor might seem defenseless against a large, determined predator such as a crab. But evolution has provided one species of sea snail with a unique iron-plated armored shell that resists such attacks, new research from MIT shows.
New insights about a tiny snail that lives on the ocean floor could help scientists design better armor for soldiers and vehicles, according to MIT researchers.
Dean Subra Suresh gives a talk to the MIT Arab Alum Association.
The Asian Pacific Fund honors Dean Suresh’s academic accomplishments and leadership in higher education.
In January I was contacted by an editor from a major national news magazine to suggest a “dream Government-stimulus package” for President-elect Barack Obama. Before I tell you about my suggestion, I’d like to pause for a moment and direct your attention to the request itself - because I think it’s an interesting example of how this country has already shifted its perspective since last November’s elections.
Bridging physics, engineering, and microbiology, researchers at MIT have measured the frequency at which red blood cells vibrate and have shown that those frequencies reflect the health of the cells. The research could lead to better medical diagnostics.
The Society of Engineering Science has chosen Subra Suresh, Dean of the School of Engineering and Ford Professor of Engineering, to receive the A.C. Eringen Medal for 2008, one of the highest and most distinguished prizes awarded in recognition of “sustained outstanding achievements in engineering science.”
Team’s results could lead to new composites that mimic bones’ capacity to ‘fail gracefully’
Subra Suresh, the Ford Professor of Engineering in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, will succeed Institute Professor Thomas Magnanti as the next dean of the School of Engineering. Suresh will assume his new leadership role July 23.
GEM4’s multidisciplinary, multinational research targets public health crises like malaria
Subra Suresh, Ford Professor of Engineering and former head of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at MIT, is the recipient of the 2007 European Materials Medal from the Federation of European Materials Societies (FEMS).
Subra Suresh, the Ford Professor of Engineering, has been elected an honorary member of the Spanish Royal Academy of Sciences.
