Wally Baer and Jeri Weiss Establish Endowed Postdoctoral Fellowship in IST

“Going back to my days at Bell Labs,” says Wally Baer, “I’ve been fascinated by information as a unifying concept in the sciences. So when Jeri and I began to consider how we might best support research at Caltech, we soon focused on the IST initiative. We believe IST represents what Caltech does best: bringing together exceptional scholars whose work spans traditional academic disciplines to address fundamental problems in science and technology. We want the IST postdoctoral fellowship we’re endowing to help advance that mission.”
