MIT medical experts guide available in News Office

A new guide published by the MIT News Office showing the scope of medically related research being conducted at the Institute is available to members of the MIT community at no cost.

The MIT Media Guide to Experts on Medicine, Physiology and Health features almost 200 MIT faculty and scientists involved in research ranging from aging to laser medicine to Z-DNA. It includes a brief description of each person's work, plus information on how to contact the researchers.

Though not a comprehensive listing of everyone at MIT doing medically related research, the guide does give a feel for the scope of such research here. It contains sections on bioengineering, brain science and cognitive science, cancer, computers in medicine, diagnostics, diseases/conditions, general health, genetics, health care policy and economics, physiology, space medicine and therapies.

The cross-indexed guide is being distributed to members of the media. Members of the MIT community who would like a copy may contact LaKeitha Evelyn of the News Office at x3-2700 or
