WetComm: Foundations of Wet Communication Theory

Dr. Pierobon’s WetComm: Foundations of Wet Communication Theory project is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), and aims to develop transformative concepts and tools to characterize, model, and design systems based on living communicating devices (i.e., biological cells) in order to control the propagation of information in biological environments.

MERC will be the third-party evaluator for this research grant by surveying students who participate in either of Dr. Pierobon’s “Molecular and Nanoscale Communications” or “Genetically Engineered Systems” courses. The students will be assessed before and after on their level of knowledge about the content of the course, their perception of the content, and how their exposure to collaborating scientists affected their interest and learning. Other components involved in the research will be assessed annually, including outreach activities which will are evaluated through attendance and surveys.
