    I met her briefly when she visited our university a few years ago to give a seminar on her work in nanoscience.


    She was featured in a recent GE commercial
    "What If Scientists Were Celebrities?"



    Some interviews and lectures:
    (2013)

    (2008)

    (2007)

    (1987)

    Again, another candidate for the Nobel Prize is taken away.

    They showed the GE commercial last night during the Academy Awards show. It has turned into a tribute to her and her continuing legacy of encouraging women to go into science.
