In a new book, MIT’s Ethan Zuckerman asserts that we need to overcome the Internet’s sorting tendencies and create tools to make ourselves ‘digital cosmopolitans.’
Nobel laureate H. Robert Horvitz, the David H. Koch Professor of Cancer Biology and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator, will deliver the 35th annual Killian Award lecture April 24 at 4:30 p.m. in Kirsch Auditorium (Room 32-123) of the Stata Center.
Winner of the 2006-2007 James R. Killian Jr. Faculty Achievement Award, Horvitz will speak on "Worms, Life and Death: Cell Suicide in Development and Disease."
Established in 1971 as a tribute to MIT's 10th president, the Killian Award recognizes extraordinary professional accomplishment by an MIT faculty member. The winner delivers a lecture in the spring term.
