John Baras, professor of electrical and computer engineering and the Institute for Systems Research, and Fischell Department of Bioengineering graduate student and Fischell Fellow Matthew Dowling have been named 2009 Innovators of the Year by the Maryland Daily Record.

Baras was recognized for his cryptographic key exchange system to improve digital video broadcasting. Dowling was honored for the blood-clotting "nano-Velcro" technology produced by his startup company, Remedium Technologies, Inc.

The Daily Record's Innovator of the Year awards are given to individuals whose ideas have had a positive effect on business, community, or industry in Maryland. Dowling and his fellow award recipients were recognized at an event at the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore, Md., last month. The panel of judges included representatives from the U.S. Small Business Association and the law firm Whiteford Taylor Preston, which specializes in patents and intellectual property.
