Two MIT scientists have been chosen as 2006 Trailblazers by Science Spectrum magazine. The award honors outstanding Hispanic, Asian American, Native American and black professionals in science whose leadership and innovative thinking extend throughout and beyond their industry.
MIT faculty among the 2006 Trailblazers are James Sherley, associate professor of biomedical engineering, and Pardis Sabeti, a postdoctoral fellow at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard.
A luncheon honoring the Science Spectrum Trailblazers will be held on Friday, Sept. 16, in Baltimore during the Minorities in Research Science Conference.
