Donald E. Ingber, M.D. ’84, Ph.D. ’84, Judah Folkman Professor of Vascular Biology at Harvard Medical School and Children’s Hospital Boston, was named director of the new Hansjörg Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard in October. The institute was founded with the largest individual gift in Harvard’s history, a $125 million donation from Wyss, an engineer who led the Swiss medical device company Synthes for three decades. The institute will bring together engineers, scientists and clinicians across disciplines and will focus on synthetic biology, a “living materials program,” and biological control.
