The Robert and Kathleen Dobkin Intuitive Foundation Fellowship supports one academic year of research in the area of coatings, with preference to those whose research has implications for the field of electronics.
From biological sensors and better building materials to next-generation electronic and implantable therapeutics, advanced materials are at the heart of our society’s key technology needs. As a result, tomorrow’s advances will require radical improvements in those underlying materials.
This Fellowship at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the Department of Material Science & Engineering was awarded in the Fall of 2018. It will drive innovation with a fearless approach to difficult problems. The Fellowship will also take faculty research out of the lab and through to real-world impact in the following ways:
- Bolster scientific advancements in the field
- Teach or mentor students on materials science
- Bring achievements to light through open access publications and patent filings
- Translate discoveries to real-world applications through industry partnerships and new companies
