In the media

Jake Marcus, a student I’ve been working with since I came to IHME, has an essay in The New Republic! It’s about political movements and fighting disease, and it’s his answer to the question Why isn’t there a global movement to combat noncommunicable diseases? The answer: it’s complicated.

Jake says credit for his article should also go to another of our coworkers, Steve Lim, who helped him understand some of the complications.

Big News Day for Industrial TCS

Today there are headlines from almost all of the computer companies with TCS research labs. Some sounds good, some sounds bad. How this will affect research?

This seems like a fine time to mention the Post-Graduate Fellowship Program at IHME (app deadline March 1, 2009). It would be fun to have more TCS people up here.
