Donald E Ingber to deliver the 2014 Graeme Clark Oration
Dr Donald Ingber is the Founding Director of the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired engineering at Harvard University.  He also holds the positions of the Judah Folkman Professor of Vascular Biology, Harvard Medical School & Boston Children’s Hospital and Professor of Bioengineering, Harvard School of Engineering & Applied Sciences.
 
He received his B.A., M.A., M.Phil., M.D. and Ph.D. from Yale University. Dr. Ingber is a founder of the emerging field of biologically inspired engineering, and at the Wyss Institute, he oversees a multifaceted effort to identify the mechanisms that living organisms use to self-assemble from molecules and cells, and to apply these design principles to develop advanced materials and devices for healthcare and to improve sustainability.
 
 
 
At the forefront of convergence of Life Sciences and IT
The Oration organiser, ICT for Life Sciences forum brings together people at the convergence of the life sciences and information and communication technology – in areas such as developing bionic implant devices for hearing and sight; supercomputing to crunch data on genomics or model drug treatments; using synchrotron light to reveal the structure of protein molecules.
 
The Forum facilitates communication and cooperation between people in this newly emerging discipline and supports the development of a vibrant and innovative high technology industry.
 
Established in 2008 the Forum offers value by sharing knowledge and expertise, aspirations, problems and ideas among an interesting group of people.  It also builds bridges between recent large infrastructure investments – the synchrotron, the $100 Million life sciences super computer, the imaging investments, and others – and the people who can make use of those facilities.
