In Memoriam: Tom Gallie, Duke Computer Science Professor Emeritus
Tom Gallie, Duke Professor Emeritus of Computer Science, passed away recently. Joining Duke as a Math Research Instructor in 1954 and then becoming a Math Professor, he helped to develop a computer science program in the Math Department in the 1960s, and also built a student computing facility. He led the creation of the Duke Computer Science Program in 1971 and became its Director. A founding member of the Duke Computer Science department in 1972, he served in multiple roles, including Interim Chair before his retirement from Duke in 1989.Read More
Groundbreaking research at Duke Computer Science: Tiny devices made of DNA can detect cancer with fewer false alarms
Duke Computer Science Professor John Reif and a student research team recently published an article in the Journal of the American Chemical Society (JACS) about a new cancer-detecting tool which uses tiny circuits made of DNA to identify cancer cells by the molecular signatures on their surface. This innovation provides researchers with the hope that their work could improve diagnosis, or give cancer therapies better aim.Read More
