LASER BECKMAN LASER INSTITUTE Collaboration with College Establishing collaborative research projects with a small private college might not be a top priority for every major research institution. But perhaps it should be. An ongoing collaboration between the Institute and Harvey Mudd College (HMC) in Claremont, CA, has shown researchers just how valuable such a collaboration can be. From left, J. Stuart Nelson, Bahman Anvari, and Sam Tanenbaum confer over results from tests of skin cooling during laser treatment. Researchers at both institutions are cooperating on several mutually beneficial endeavors, including two scientific collaborations and research opportunities for HMC students. The first collaborative project involves cooling devices for use in laser therapy. With Institute Associate Director J. Stuart Nelson, M.D., Ph.D., HMC researchers Sam Tanenbaum, Ph.D., and Tribute to Charley Hester This issue is dedicated to a tireless supporter of the Institute. The Director paints a picture of Charley on page 2, and Institute friends remember him on page 6. 1 I N T H E N E W S Remembering Charley Hester 2 Alternative to Hysterectomies 3 Insight into T-Cell Activation 5 Spring 1 9 9 6 Bahman Anvari, Ph.D., are working on methods to reduce possible damage to healthy tissue from heat released during laser removal of birthmarks and vascular skin lesions. This project has special value for Dr. Tanenbaum. After 18 years as Dean of Faculty at HMC, working at the Institute has allowed him to return to his true love, engineering research. “This project has rehabilitated an old administrator,” Dr. Tanenbaum remarks with a smile, “and for that I am grateful.” “His well-known modesty aside,” Dr. Nelson responds, “Dr. Tanenbaum has brought extensive knowledge and invaluable experience to our work, not to mention good humor.” The second collaborative research project involves functional imaging of tissue. Institute Professor Bruce Tromberg, Ph.D., and Richard Haskell, Ph.D., of HMC are working to apply photon migration technology as a tool for non-invasive diagnostics. For its part, the Institute has helped HMC start a bioengineering undergraduate program, one of the first in the nation. The Institute also participates in freshman engineering design projects at the college and hosts HMC students for summer research internships conducted at the Institute. “This is our first collaboration with an undergraduate college,” notes Institute Director Michael W. Berns, Ph.D., “and I think both institutions could not be more satisfied with the results achieved.” ■
