The Viterbi School’s Biomedical Engineering Department has named its keynote lecture for the late Fred S. Grodins, the department’s founding chair.
Grodin’s 1963 publication, “Control Theory and Biological Systems,” is a landmark document on the earliest applications of engineering control theory to physiological systems.
