Established in 1974 to commemorate the eminent Italian inventor and electrical engineer, Guglielmo Marconi, the Marconi Society has recognized significant contributions in science and technology by awarding the Marconi Prize, with an annual USD 100,000 grant, to a living scientist who has made great advancements in communications technology.

 

Along with the Marconi Prize, the Society has been presenting the Young Scholars Awards over the past six years to reward young and emerging scientists’ brilliant academic and research achievements as well as their entrepreneurship. For this year’s seventh Young Scholar Awards, a KAIST doctoral student was selected as one of the two recipients.

 

Kiseok Song, a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Electrical Engineering, KAIST, has been named as a 2014 Marconi Society Paul Baran Young Scholar. The Marconi Society said that Song was being recognized for "his academic achievements and leadership in the field of communications and information science,” according to a press release distributed by the Society on August 28, 2014.    

 

Studying under the advice of Professor Hoi-Jun Yoo of the Department of Electrical Engineering at KAIST, Song has developed bio-medical System on a Chip (SoC) such as smart wireless bio-medical systems combined with optimized SoCs, compact bio-medical patch systems connected to smart phones, smart electro-acupuncture and transdermal drug delivery, and multi-modal non-invasive glucose monitors.

 

The press release quoted Professor Yoo’s comment on the meaning of Song’s research:

 

“All of these bio-medical systems open a new healthcare paradigm to improve people’s quality of life in combination with the current mobile smart phones.”      

 

In addition to Song, Himanshu Asnani, a Stanford Ph.D. candidate and system engineer at Ericsson Silicon Valley, received the other award.  

 

The award ceremony will be held at the Marconi Society’s annual award gala at the National Academies of Science Building in Washington D.C., on October 2, 2014.
