Yes, this is a thread in itself:

Margaret Hamburg & Peter Fitzhugh Brown
Harvard Medical School

Both my parents are physicians. I grew up right on the Stanford campus, surrounded by many friends and families that were related to the field of medicine...Margaret Hamburg is the daughter of Beatrix and David Hamburg, both distinguished physicians and early role models for her career in medicine. Her mother was the first African-American woman to attend Vassar College and to earn a degree from the Yale University School of Medicine (which had previously excluded black students) . Her Jewish father and grandmother taught her to value education and family and to fight discrimination and oppression.

Hamburg is a graduate of Radcliffe College. She earned her M.D. from Harvard Medical School, and completed her training at the New York Hospital/Cornell University Medical Center. She did research in neuroscience at Rockefeller University in New York from 1985 to1986 and in neuropharmacology (the study of the action of drugs on the nervous system) at the National Institute of Mental Health in Bethesda, Maryland.

Dr. Hamburg is married to Peter Fitzhugh Brown, an artificial intelligence expert, and the couple have two children. Interestingly, she was the first New York City health commissioner to give birth while in office, so her children's birth certificates bear her name in two places: as their mother and as health commissioner

WASHINGTON -- The new commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration is among the wealthiest Obama administration appointees, with income of at least $10 million in 2008 thanks mostly to her husband, a hedge-fund executive, according to financial disclosure forms.

Margaret Hamburg and her husband, Peter Fitzhugh Brown, must divest themselves of several hedge-fund holdings as well as some of Mr. Brown's inherited drug-company stocks so Dr. Hamburg can take the post as the nation's top food and drug regulator. Mr. Brown is a lieutenant to hedge-fund magnate James Simons.


Hamburg Must Divest

And finally, newly-minted FDA Commissioner Peggy Hamburg and her hedge-fund managing husband, Peter Fitzhugh Brown, must divest themselves of hedge-fund holdings and drug company stocks before Hamburg can officially take up her post.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Hamburg and Brown control assets between $21 million and $40 million.

Brown has already sold his stock in Abbott Laboratories, shares in Johnson & Johnson, Merck & Co. and Medco Health Solutions Inc., which he inherited from his father, the Journal reports.

By LAURAN NEERGAARD and ERICA WERNER, Associated Press Writers – Wed Mar 11, 6:49 pm ET

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama intends to name former New York City Health Commissioner Margaret Hamburg to lead the troubled Food and Drug Administration.

Hamburg and Baltimore Health Commissioner Joshua Sharfstein have been talked about for weeks as the leading candidates for the top two spots at the agency, with Sharfstein as Hamburg's deputy commissioner.

Wednesday, a person close to Hamburg said that announcement was imminent. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because there was no White House confirmation. Spokesmen for the White House and the Health and Human Services Department declined to comment on the nomination.

The two physician-outsiders will be tasked with restoring credibility to an agency that has suffered a string of failures such as repeated food recalls — including the massive salmonella outbreak in peanut products.

Hamburg is a well-known bioterrorism expert who served as an assistant health secretary during the Clinton administration and helped lay the groundwork for much of the government's bioterrorism preparations and pandemic flu planning.

But she may be best known as the chief health officer of the nation's largest city during the early 1990s, when she designed a program that cut high rates of drug-resistant tuberculosis, supported needle-exchange to cut the spread of the AIDS virus and helped introduce smoking restrictions.

Officers and Staff of the "Nuclear Threat Initiative" [Why is Hamburg a member of this group too?]
Margaret A. Hamburg, M.D., Senior Scientist
Dr. Hamburg previously served as NTI's Vice President for the Biological Program and now provides strategic advice and expertise to NTI as Senior Scientist. Before coming to NTI, Dr. Hamburg was Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. She is a physician and expert in public health and bioterrorism. Dr. Hamburg was the Commissioner of Health for the City of New York and former Assistant Director of the Institute of Allergy & Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health. She is a member of the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies of Science, the Council on Foreign Relations and is a fellow for the American Association of the Advancement of Science. She also serves on the Board of Trustees of the Rockefeller Foundation.

So they are funding projects that "integrate" disciplines from computer engineering, bio-medical engineering etc...


Dream Team - Vanderbilt part of national center to develop new cyber-security technologies

TRUST academic partners include Carnegie Mellon University, Cornell University, Mills College, San Jose State University, Smith College and Stanford University. The program also brings together multiple industrial partners,
including BellSouth, Cisco Systems, ESCHER (Boeing, General Motors, Raytheon), Hewlett Packard, IBM, Intel,
Microsoft, Qualcom, Sun and Symantec.

TRUST “represents the ‘dream team’ of information assurance and complex systems research,” says Rep. Sherwood Boehlert, R-N.Y., chairman of the House Science Committee. Boehlert played a critical role in reinstating funding for the NSF Science and Technology Center program when it was expected to be cut.

Designing Seniors
The senior design course has changed a lot since most of us were in school.We now assemble interdisciplinary teams of students from biomedical, computer, electrical and mechanical engineering to work on yearlong design projects often derived from industry or the hospital. The originator of the project, sometimes an alumnus/a practitioner, may be involved from start to finish. The intellectual property stays with the “donor” of the project.

Cornell Scientists subjects of Mind Control?

McVeigh's rage at a target "larger" and "more ubiquitous" than the military was incited at Calspan, within a year of his failed Special Forces entrance examination, several months AFTER leaving the Army.

Calspan and electromagnetic mind control both have roots at the same Ivy League institution - Cornell University, Ithaca, New York. Calspan was founded in 1946 as Cornell Aeronautical Laboratory. And Cornell was also the contract base for the CIA's "Human Ecology Fund," a fount of financial support for classified experimentation at the country's leading universities.

Cornell Aerospace was reorganized in 1972 and renamed Calspan. Six years later, the firm was acquired by Arvin Industries. Recently, Arvin-Calspan merged with Space Industries International (SII), a commercial space- flight venture based in Texas. During the Reagan-Bush era, SII expanded from a staff of 33 to over 2,700 employees.

Timothy McVeigh was assigned to the conglomerate's Advanced Technology Center in Buffalo, N.Y. (Calspan ATC). ATC sales literature boasts a large energy shock tunnel, radar facilities and "a radio-frequency (RF) simulator facility for evaluating electronic warfare techniques." One Calspan research lab specializes in microscopic engineering. Calspan literature boasts that ATC employs "numerous world-renowned scientists and engineers" on "the cutting edge" of scientific research.


1955: Harold Wolff taught psychiatry in Cornell University's Medical College when he was conducting brainwashing studies for the head of the CIA, Allen Dulles. He “asked the Agency to give him access to everything in its files on threats, coercion, imprisonment, isolation, deprivation, humiliation, torture, ‘brainwashing,’ ‘black psychiatry,’ hypnosis, and combinations of these with or without chemical agents.” Beyond mere study, Wolff volunteered the unwitting use of Cornell patients for brainwashing experiments, so long as no one got hurt. He added, however, that he would advise the CIA on experiments that harmed their subjects if they were performed elsewhere, according to The Search for the Manchurian Candidate.

The CIA's key instrument for sponsoring basic research in psychology, sociology and anthropology in the decade from the mid-1950s to the mid-1960s was the Society for the Investigation of Human Ecology, later called the Human Ecology Fund. Although accounts vary, according to Lawrence Hinkle, one of the founders of the Society and a professor at Cornell Medical Center, the origins of Human Ecology lie in a friendship between Allen Dulles and Harold Wolff, a prominent Cornell neuropsychiatrist who had cared for Dulles' son following a war injury. The return of American prisoners of war who had served in Korea evoked government and popular concern about the possible existence of "brainwashing." As director of the CIA, Dulles asked Wolff, an expert on stress, to find out what had happened to the POWs, and the Society for the Investigation of Human Ecology was set up at Cornell Medical College to address this question through research on Chinese and Soviet methods of interrogation and indoctrination. Hinkle has said that he himself, as well as the Dean of Cornell Medical School, were aware of the Society's CIA origins...

What is biofeedback?
Biofeedback is a form of mind control over the body that allows a person to reduce sensations of pain. Biofeedback is a technique that involves training the mind.

The idea of controlling body functions with the mind is not new. Many Eastern philosophies, such as Yoga, are based on the belief that meditation, and other thought processes, can control the body.


Human Auditory System Response To Modulated Electromagnetic Energy, Allan H. Frey,
 General Electric Advanced Electronics Center, Cornell University, Ithaca, New York

--The intent of this paper is to bring a new phenomena to the attention of physiologists.  Using extremely low average power densities of electromagnetic energy, the perception of sounds was induced in normal and deaf humans.  The effect was induced several hundred feet from the antenna the instant the transmitter was turned on, and is a function of carrier frequency and modulation. Attempts were made to match the sounds induced by electromagnetic energy and acoustic energy.

Scranton Prep grad killed in Ithaca, NY
One month after marrying on a beach in Costa Rica, a 28-year-old woman who grew up on a quiet, tree-lined street in Clarks Green was found dead Wednesday near her Ithaca, N.Y., apartment.

News of the death of Caroline M. Coffey, who graduated from Scranton Prep in 1998, was rippling throughout the area Thursday afternoon. Friends who remembered her as a kind, intelligent and accomplished woman expressed grief and shock at the still-emerging details of her murder.

Police say Ms. Coffey died from a "massive laceration to the front of her neck."

Police have called her husband Blazej J. Kot, 24, a suspect, but he has not been charged. He is at an Ithaca-area hospital recovering from surgery for self-inflicted wounds with "an edged weapon," police said.

According to a police report, Mr. Kot caught the attention of an officer just before 10 p.m. Tuesday when he drove into a closed parking lot at Taughannock Falls State Park. He led police on a five-mile, high-speed chase before stopping. Officers said he inflicted a "life-threatening" injury on himself. Police then went to the couple's apartment and found it on fire, but Ms. Coffey was not there. State police ruled the fire arson.

Ms. Coffey's body was discovered the next morning by hikers on a trail about 400 yards from the apartment, according to police. She was wearing a blood-stained shirt and jogging pants, and had reached the area on her own, witnesses and law enforcement officials said, according to the Ithaca Journal.

Born in Ireland, Ms. Coffey, 28, grew up with her parents Michael and Patricia Coffey and her brother Paul at 401 Brighton Drive in Clarks Green.

Ms. Coffey loved horses and was an accomplished rider. She had a horse named Irish Mist - "Jimmy" for short - whom she visited often at Candy Apple Farms in Dalton, said Jeff Gilotti whom she dated during their sophomore year.

After graduating from Scranton Prep, she earned a degree in biology from the University of Scranton and a doctorate in comparative medical science from Cornell University.

"She always excelled," said Dimitra Livanos Hollow, who was friends with Ms. Coffey in high school. They recently reconnected when Ms. Coffey showed up at her house with a mutual friend and helped her move into a new house.

"She was very kind and very smart," Ms. Hollow said. She was also strong-willed, she said. "She was her own person."

Ms. Coffey met Mr. Kot while at Cornell, Ms. Hollow said.

After graduate school, Ms. Coffey took a teaching job at St. Joseph's University in Philadelphia. But the couple continued to date, friend David Rossi said. He lives in Philadelphia and was also friends with Ms. Coffey since high school.

"He would drive down here religiously to see her," Mr. Rossi said. He described Mr. Kot as "very, very laid-back."
"He was a nice gentleman, very educated," he said.

Ms. Coffey then received a grant, returned to Ithaca and was performing stem-cell research, Mr. Rossi said.

On May 2, the couple married in Costa Rica. "It was an amazing ceremony on the beach at sunset," said friend Denise Millon, of Carbondale, who now lives in Atlanta.

Ms. Coffey loved to travel and had recently visited the Galapagos Islands and to Poland, where Mr. Kot is from., Ms. Millon said. The couple had planned a visit to Germany in October.

"Caroline was always going everywhere," she said. "She did so much with her life.
"All of the things she wanted to do, she really did."

Claudia Fischbach-Teschl - Assistant Professor - Department of Biomedical Engineering

Claudia Fischbach-Teschl is helping to cure cancer. “The type of research that can be done with biomedical engineering is tremendously useful for cancer research,” she says. “I try to develop new strategies to study the behavior of cancer cells.”
So Fischbach-Teschl is making more realistic test subjects by growing cells from oral, breast and brain cancer within porous polymer scaffolds—similar to the technique used to grow skin cells for burn victims.
With a Ph.D. in pharmaceutical technology from the University of Regensburg in Germany, Fischbach-Teschl also has an interest in drug delivery strategies which has informed her tissue engineering work. “The polymers I use now for cell delivery strategies were originally developed for drug delivery,” she says.

Until the completion of the new Life Sciences Technology Building, Fischbach-Teschl’s lab will be located at the College of Veterinary Medicine’s Baker Institute for Animal Health. She is looking forward to collaborating with multiple groups on the Ithaca campus, as well as from Cornell’s Weill Medical College.
