John A. Rogers awarded 2018 MRS Medal

John A. Rogers will receive the 2018 MRS Medal from the Materials Research Society. The MRS Medal recognizes a major advance or cluster of closely related advances in any materials-related field of research over the past 10 years. The impact of this research on the progress of the relevant materials field is a primary consideration in making the award.  The 2018 award recognizes Rogers’ “pioneering contributions to materials for diverse classes of bio-integrated electronic systems.” The Awards Ceremony will be held at the 2018 MRS Fall Meeting in Boston.  Rogers will also present a general-interest talk describing his research and achievements to the assembled members of the MRS as part of the convention’s technical program.

“We are very honored to receive this award,” Rogers said. “It recognizes a broad, collective body of interdisciplinary work performed by teams of amazing students and wonderful senior collaborators over the years.”

John A. Rogers is the Louis Simpson and Kimberly Querrey Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, and Neurological Surgery (and by courtesy Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering, and Chemistry).  He also directs the Center for Bio-Integrated Electronics within the Simpson Querrey Institute.
