Persons of Interest

Groundbreaking science and engineering start with people. In this issue of our campaign e-magazine, you will meet bioinspired engineers, earthquake modelers, sustainability scientists, discipline-crossing undergraduates, and donors who propel discovery at Caltech.

On the cover: Conversations spark creativity and collaborations at Red Door Marketplace in Caltech’s Hameetman Center, named for trustee Fred Hameetman (BS ’62) and his wife, Joyce.


A Break Through Trio

The biomechanical fundamentals of flight, new ways to pinpoint brain cells that are linked to disease, and the fate of our private data: These are just a few areas where Caltech’s Break Through campaign fuels groundbreaking research.


A Bright Future

Resnick Fellow Kyle Virgil aims to create a more sustainable future. Trustee Stewart Resnick and his wife, Lynda, founders of The Wonderful Company, are helping to make this work possible. In September 2019, they increased their investment in Caltech’s Resnick Sustainability Institute with a new commitment of $750 million.
