Timothy Lu ~ Lemelson-MIT Student Inventor 2008

This morning I went to the announcement of the 2008 Lemelson-MIT Student Prize celebration where Timothy Lu was honored as the winner for his work in synthetic biology and engineering microphages. This year, for the first time, Executive Director Joshua Schuler and colleagues announced two top runner-up Finalists, Manu Prakash and Erez Lieberman. I'm a huge supporter of the invention and innovation mission of the Lemelson-MIT program and have been to every awards announcement and met all the MIT student winners since 1995.
