Reflections on Major Milestones in Cancer Research and Technology Development

From MIT World:

The breadth and depth of thinking represented in MIT’s 150th anniversary symposia would do William Barton Rogers proud, believes David Mindell. MIT’s founder and first president envisioned the university pursuing cutting edge work, and the “convergence of science and engineering 150 years later captures the essence, the special courage” that Rogers imagined, says Mindell.
