Stanford University

Long a hotbed of research in network information theory and wireless technology, Stanford has made significant contributions to these fields, from faculty development of commercial applications to alumni leadership roles in related technology companies. Today, Stanford researchers are focused on developing connections and interplays between information, communication, estimation, and control. These new theoretical tools will be applied to the basic sciences, with a goal of better understanding the human genome and how the brain processes, stores, and communicates information.
