Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
Ibrahim Cissé, an assistant professor of physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), has received Horiba Scientific’s annual Young Fluorescence Investigator Award.

Award recipients receive $1000 and an invitation to present a 20-minute talk on their research at the Biological Fluorescence Subgroup Meeting during the Biophysical Society Annual Meeting. Cissé’s presentation was titled “Capturing Genome Regulation with Single Molecule Resolution in Live Mammalian Cells."

“Horiba is very proud to sponsor this prestigious award every year, and professor Cissé is an excellent choice as this year’s recipient,” said Cary Davies, director of the fluorescence group at Horiba Scientific. “Ibrahim is the 22nd researcher to win the Young Investigator Award since 1997.”

Cissé joined the MIT physics department in January 2014. He received his bachelor’s degree in physics from North Carolina Central University in 2004 and his Ph.D. at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in December of 2009. He also studied at Ecole Normale Supérieure de Paris in the physics and biology departments as both a Pierre Gilles de Gennes fellow and a European Molecular Biology Organization long-term fellow from 2010 to 2012. Cissé then went to HHMI’s Janelia Research Campus where he was in the Transcription Imaging Consortium until January 2013.

The Young Fluorescence Investigator Award is given to a researcher who has been nominated by their peers for significant advancements and/or contributions in, or using, fluorescence methodologies. The candidate must be a Ph.D. and pre-tenured faculty or a junior-level investigator working in the field of fluorescence.

Horiba Scientific is a manufacturer of high-performance spectroscopic instrumentation for applications in nanotechnology, semiconductors, pharmaceuticals, chemistry, photovoltaics, environmental and life sciences industries.
