We are happy to announce that Dr. Michael Leuenberger (joint Physics appointment) has received the prestigious Young Faculty Award from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the central research and development organization for the Department of Defense (DoD). The Young Faculty Award was created to offer a venue by which research ideas proposed by young faculty can be sponsored and promoted within the Microsystems Technology Office (MTO) at DARPA. The Young Faculty Award (YFA) is expected to provide MTO with revolutionary research ideas that are critical to future technology developments. We congratulate Dr. Leuenberger in this achievement and wish him success in this new endeavor.
