Will McLean — Frequency Therapeutics
McLean’s research focuses on the cochlea, the spiral-shaped cavity within the inner ear that’s responsible for hearing. At birth, the average human cochlea contains 15,000 hair cells, which detect sound waves and transfer them to the brain. Over time, many of these cells are killed by exposure to loud noise and toxic medications. In mammals, unlike birds, reptiles, and amphibians, they don’t naturally grow back. “The inner ear is one of the least regenerative parts of the body,” McLean says. “That’s why hearing loss is permanent.”

CREOS | MIT Libraries
CREOS seeks evidence about the best ways disparate communities can participate in scholarship with minimal bias or barriers.

First, it aims to make research in every field more equitably and openly available to all who could benefit from and/or contribute to it.
Second, it aims to accomplish the first goal by conducting and supporting original research and sharing it openly.

Have you ever wondered about the underlying principles behind WiFi? How radar works, or how we know so much about the early universe? Or even just what those people are doing up on the Green Building roof at such odd hours?

ASTERIA (Arcsecond Space Telescope Enabling Research in Astrophysics) is a technology demonstration and opportunistic science mission to conduct astrophysical measurements using a CubeSat. Originally envisioned as a project for training early career scientists and engineers, ASTERIA's technical goal is to achieve arcsecond-level line-of-sight pointing error and highly stable focal plane temperature control. These technologies are important for precision photometry, i.e., the measurement of stellar brightness over time. Precision photometry, in turn, provides a way to study stellar activity, transiting exoplanets, and other astrophysical phenomena.
