Five Berkeley affiliates were honored with prestigious Franklin Institute awards this week. Electrical engineering and computer sciences professor Eli Yablonovitch won the 2019 Benjamin Franklin Medal in Electrical Engineering, recognizing his research boosting the efficiency of solar panels and for his innovations in photonics, widely used in telecommunications, computers, and other high-tech applications. Former Berkeley immunologist James Allison won the Franklin Medal in Life Science, recognizing cancer research he conducted at Berkeley, for which he also won a Nobel Prize this year. Former physics professor John Hopfield won the Franklin Medal in Physics for his contributions to various biological sciences, as well as machine learning and computer science. And other honorees included doctoral alumni Frances Arnold (chemistry) and Marcia Johnson (computer and cognitive science). For more on this, see our story at Berkeley News.
