WPI professor to represent American Mathematical Society at exhibition on science funding

WORCESTER, Mass. June 21, 2007 Dalin Tang, professor of mathematical sciences and biomedical engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), will represent the American Mathematical Society (AMS) at the annual Coalition for National Science Funding (CNSF) exhibition and reception on Capitol Hill June 26.

CNSF is an alliance of more than 100 scientific societies, universities, and corporations that advocates for increased funding for National Science Foundation (NSF) research and education programs. Since 1995, the coalition has sponsored an annual event in Washington, D.C., to showcase research made possible by NSF awards. Members of Congress and their staffs are invited to view exhibits on a wide range of current research projects and talk with researchers. Each exhibit is sponsored by a CNSF member. This year's event, which will include exhibits sponsored by more than 30 organizations, will be held in the Rayburn House Office Building from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Tang will present results from several multi-institution research projects he directs that are producing, for the first time, a comprehensive understanding of the growth, progression, and rupture of human atherosclerotic plaque. Plaque is a medical condition closely related to most forms of cardiovascular diseases, the leading cause of death in the developed world. Tang's research is aimed at developing diagnostic tools that physicians can use to determine which arterial plaques are most vulnerable to rupturetechnology that could save lives and lower medical costs.

With more than 28,000 individual members and 550 institutional members in the United States and abroad, AMS seeks to promote mathematical research and its applications, strengthen mathematical education, and foster awareness of mathematics and its connections to other disciplines and to everyday life. AMS associate executive director Samuel M. Rankin III, who is also current chair of CNSF, selected Tang to rep
