I met a lot of smart people while I was at MIT and one of the smartest ones I've met is giving a talk this afternoon (here). If you've got some free time this afternoon, head over to MIT to listen to his presentation on Engineered Gene Circuits for Medicine, it's going to be one hell of a talk.

Dr. Timothy Lu received the Lemelson-MIT Student Prize in 2008 for his work on engineering molecular circuits and bacteriophage (viruses that infect bacteria) to treat intractable infections and address the global health crisis of antibiotic resistance. His research applies core principles from electrical engineering and computer science to biology to achieve these goals. Attend this special seminar by Dr. Lu to hear him present his work in three exciting areas.

Tim and I have talked a few times about the research he's doing, something along the lines of using bacteriophage to combat biofilms and/or antibiotic resistant bacteria. But I never got to hear the whole story, so this will be a good chance to do so.

Mark my words, you'll be hearing about this guy on 20/20 or 60 Minutes in the future for having revolutionized medicine. May as well get your autographs now. =)
