Shapiro to deliver semi-plenary address at American Control Conference

Professor Benjamin Shapiro (BioE/ISR) will be one of three semi-plenary speakers at the 2015 American Control Conference, July 1-3 in Chicago. The ACC is one of the premier conferences in the field of control.

Shapiro will be speaking on “Magnetic Control of Therapy to Hard-to-Reach Disease Targets,” focusing on challenges and progress that has made in better understanding magnetic drug targeting, from modeling of magnetic fields and nano-particles, to excised tissue, in-vivo experiments, and autopsy studies, and how those elements are informing design of next-generation magnet systems and controllers.
