Fred S. Grodins Keynote Lecture

The Alfred E. Mann Department of Biomedical Engineering has named its keynote lecture for the late Fred S. Grodins, the department’s founding chair.

Grodin’s 1963 publication, “Control Theory and Biological Systems,” is a landmark document on the earliest applications of engineering control theory to physiological systems.
