his is a special issue of NJIT Magazine for two reasons. First, this issue’s cover story acknowledges the stellar achievements of a select group of our alumni. “30 Top Influencers from NJIT” highlights a diverse contingent of women and men whose success in a wide range of professional fields has merited inclusion in this listing. We know there are many more who deserve recognition for their accomplishments, and we invite you to share your suggestions by contacting Michael K. Smullen, executive director of alumni relations, at The second item that makes this issue special is our annual Honor Roll of donors. The generosity demonstrated by the many friends of NJIT listed in this magazine’s pages underscores their enduring commitment to this university and makes it possible for NJIT to continuously strive for greater heights. Below is a small sampling of accomplishments since the last issue of NJIT Magazine: • NJIT is ranked #1 nationally. Forbes very recently released its latest Best Value Colleges ranking and published a new list of the Top 10 Best Value Colleges with the Highest Upward Mobility, combining their rankings with data from the Equality of Opportunity Project. NJIT took the #1 spot by exceeding all other colleges and universities in the percentage of students from the bottom 20% of income distribution who reach the top 20% post-graduation. We also jumped 99 spots in the overall the Best Value Colleges list. •T  he Princeton Review has named NJIT among the top national “Colleges That Pay You Back.” • At a recent visit by New Jersey Governor Philip Murphy, he spoke glowingly of NJIT, saying, “This is an institution that has opened the doors to the middle class for countless graduates and their families. It is where our innovation economy takes root.” • As part of the ongoing boom in development throughout the City of Newark, we launched the NJIT Campus Gateway MLK project, which will redevelop a tract of land along Dr. Martin Luther King Boulevard between the NJIT campus and the Broad Street Station. This will be completed in at least three phases. Phase I will include construction of one building with 99 market rate apartments consisting of studio, one-, and two-bedroom units. In addition, 1,300 square-feet of ground floor retail space will be built and 100 parking spaces for tenants and patrons will be established. On behalf of all at NJIT, I thank every Honor Roll donor for making possible the successes described in this issue. The support you provide to NJIT, as well as its students and faculty, is what enables us to aspire to even greater achievements. Thank you. n

JIT announced the appointment of three new members to its Board of Trustees, including two alumni. Joining the Board of Trustees are Robert Cohen ’83, ’84, ’87, Diane Montalto ’82 and Dennis M. Toft, Esq. “In addition to Robert and Diane being alumni of NJIT, these new trustees bring with them impressive science and technology backgrounds,” said NJIT President Joel S. Bloom. Cohen is the vice president and chief technology officer, Joint Replacement, at Stryker Orthopaedics. Stryker, one of the world’s leading medical technology companies, offers innovative orthopedics, medical, surgical, neurotechnology and spine products and services, which help improve patient and hospital outcomes. Cohen’s illustrious career spans over 30 years in the biotech industry. He holds more than 25 patents, has been published dozens of times and was the recipient of 2

NJIT’s Alumni Achievement Award in 2012. Montalto manages real estate development projects and supports hospitality industry ventures. She spearheads the fundraising campaign for Hearts for Hunger, a nonprofit charity that she founded in 2015, which partners with the Center for Food Action in Englewood, New Jersey and funds weekend food enrichment programs for select school districts in Northern New Jersey. Montalto previously worked at Par Pharmaceutical for nearly 20 years, holding various senior positions in corporate engineering, facilities management and information technology.

JIT is one of the nation’s best colleges for students seeking a superb education with great career preparation at an affordable price, according to The Princeton Review. The education services company profiled NJIT in the 2018 edition of its annual guide, Colleges That Pay You Back: The 200 Schools That Give You the Best Bang for Your Tuition Buck. To make the list, institutions must be affordable and offer a strong academic program as well as opportunities for career prospects after

graduation. A return on an academic investment is a highly sought-after quality, and according to the guide, NJIT is among the top 1 percent in the United States for occupational earnings power. “Our students know that an NJIT degree is both affordable and a catalyst for career success,” said NJIT President Joel S. Bloom. “The fact that our students graduate with an average of nearly three job offers in hand and starting salaries almost 20 percent above the national average shows that they will receive an

immediate and lasting return on their educational investment.” The Princeton Review editors praised NJIT for “…constantly developing new curriculums to adapt to the marketplace” and note that in the past decade, the campus has doubled in size “in a direct answer to the call for more STEM-oriented skill sets in the workplace.” The guide describes how “...the Career Development Services office makes sure students are prepared via workshops, practice interviews and two career fairs (and preparatory sessions), and are very good at providing students with job experience.” NJIT students surveyed by the company described the university as “a very diverse campus” with a selling point being “its prestige and how many companies love NJIT students.” n



JIT has been recognized in nonprofit Strive for College’s 2018 I’m First! Guide to College, a comprehensive college guidebook designed to help low-income, first-generation students make college a reality. The university is among the edition’s 168 higher education institutions highlighted for their outreach efforts, financial aid opportunities and student support services. “Higher education is an investment, especially for families from lower income brackets, and NJIT leads the nation in terms of the upward economic mobility it provides to students from low-income njit .e du

families,” said NJIT President Joel S. Bloom. NJIT’s support of first-generation college students and other traditionally underserved students is ongoing through a series of programs which include the NJIT Ronald E. McNair Post-baccalaureate Achievement Program, the Educational Opportunity Program, the Center for Pre-College Programs and First Fellows, which offers support and peer mentoring to students who are the first in their families to attend an institution of higher education. n




#1 in Student Upward Mobility


recent report from Forbes ranked NJIT #1 nationally for the percentage of students from the bottom fifth of the income distribution who end up in the top fifth. The study was based on an analysis by the Equality of Opportunity Project, which compared the financial status of a student’s family before entering college with the graduate’s earnings after college. In the same publication, NJIT jumped 99 spots and landed at #96 among America’s Best Value Colleges 2018. n



un-Qing Shi, a groundbreaking computer engineer best known for devising methods to hide and retrieve data embedded in digitized images and speech, has been named a 2017 Fellow of the National Academy of Inventors. “Data hiding” techniques are used to protect and verify intellectual property, such as photos that have been digitally “watermarked” and can be accessed only by unlocking the encrypted information within the image. More recently, Shi has developed methods for returning these images to their untampered form after the embedded data

have been removed. Data hiding also is used by organizations seeking to communicate secretly. The data hiding process links two sets of data, a set of the embedded data and another set of the cover media data, while the relationship between the two sets of data differs depending on the application. In covert communications, the hidden data are irrelevant to the cover media. In authentication, however, they are closely related. “Good and bad people send images with hidden information,” notes Shi, who adds that data can be secretly embedded inside voice signals, as well as images.

Shi also is an expert at determining whether digital information, including speech, has been altered. “We want to be able to detect changes, and it’s important to understand how people manipulate this data,” he says. “As our society increasingly goes digital, whether images and speech are trustable becomes more and more important.” Shi was named an IEEE Fellow in 2005 for his contributions to multidimensional signal processing. He has been issued 30 patents for his inventions. He is among 155 renowned academic inventors designated as fellows of the National Academy of Inventors this year, who together are named on nearly 6,000 issued U.S. patents. They join the nearly 760 fellows, representing over 250 research universities and governmental and nonprofit research institutes, inducted during the past several years. Shi will be inducted into the National Academy next April at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. Andrew Hirshfeld, commissioner for patents for the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, will be the keynote speaker. n

ighlanders don’t influence change; they innovate it.

This has been the case ever since Newark Technical School first opened its doors in 1881. The accomplishments of NJIT alumni, past and present, are as high as the stars, as wide as the seas, and as deeply human as access to medicine in developing countries. And yet, our graduates have their feet planted firmly on the ground as they craft original and effective solutions for business and industry, trade, government, healthcare, and more. This spring, we decided it was high time to celebrate those alumni presently

leading their fields while shaping how we live and interact with each other and the world. In fact, we would wager that one or more of the individuals on this list have effected change in your own life as well. Think about that the next time you brew your morning joe from a single-cup coffee maker.

Clifford M. Samuel


As senior vice president, Access Operations and Emerging Markets of Gilead Sciences, Inc., Clifford Samuel leads a team that makes Gilead’s HIV/AIDS medicines available to patients in more than 130 countries, regardless of where they live or what economic means they have. Among his achievements, he enabled the company to bring HIV/ AIDS medicines to 10 million patients in a cross-section of countries defined as poor developing world countries, based on gross national income per capita, as well as a high HIV/AIDS disease burden. Samuel is currently under consideration for induction to the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering for “pioneering new approaches to providing medicines in developing countries.” NJIT MAGAZINE | SPRING/SUMMER 2018


THE HONORABLE PAUL A. SARLO B.S. CE ’92, M.S. CE ’95 Paul Sarlo is accomplished in two fields: construction engineering and politics. Among his achievements is the highly successful reconstruction of the Routes 4 and 17 interchange in Bergen County. Although it was his first major assignment when he joined Joseph M. Sanzari, Inc., he brought the $50 million project to conclusion nearly two years ahead of schedule. Within seven years, he was managing the company. In 2003, Senator Sarlo was elected to the New Jersey State Senate in a decisive win even though he was considered the underdog against a long-time incumbent. Senator Sarlo currently chairs the Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee, and serves on the Joint Budget Oversight, Higher Education, Judiciary and Legislative Oversight Committees. The Senator’s influence is, without a doubt, felt throughout the state: he is included in the 2017 NJBIZ Power 100 list.

PHILLIP SCOTT, P.E, C.M.E. B.S. CE ’98 Newark has become something of a second home to Phillip Scott. As director of the Department of Engineering for the City of Newark, Scott is Mayor Ras J. Baraka’s representative on the Board of Trustees for the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority. He also serves as the City’s flood administrator for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Scott joined the Baraka administration in October of 2014. He is a licensed professional engineer, as well as a certified municipal engineer in the State of New Jersey. Prior to coming to work for the City of Newark, Scott spent more than 16 years as a consulting engineer for real estate development projects throughout New Jersey, primarily on projects for developments in Newark and the surrounding urban area.

Richard P. Sweeney

RICHARD P. SWEENEY B.S. IA ’82, ’18 HON Dick Sweeney, inventor and business mind behind the original Keurig coffee system, learned about teamwork during his time in the U.S. Army as a leader on a Long Range Reconnaissance Patrol — service that included a 13-month tour in Vietnam. He joined the Keurig team in 1993, tasked with automating the company’s brewer and coffee manufacturing processes. At Keurig, Sweeney led the development of several U.S. and international Keurig appliance, packaging and automation patents. In addition to its reputation for quality and innovation, Keurig is known for its socially responsible business practices, which includes investing in sustainably-grown coffee and involvement in social and environmental projects. n j i t .e du

MARTIN TUCHMAN B.S. ME ’62 From the start of his career, the namesake of NJIT’s Martin Tuchman School of Management was influencing shipping and container technology and standards. While an automotive engineer at Railway Express Agency, Tuchman and his colleagues developed a new standard for intermodal containers and chassis, which allows for interchangeability of equipment in every mode — rail, truck and ship. The standard is still in use. He later helped form Interpool, one of the nation’s leading container leasing corporations, and Trac Lease, now one of the largest chassis leasing companies in the United States. Tuchman has been named Entrepreneur of the Year by Ernst & Young, and received a Hero Medal at The Smithsonian Institute.

YING WU M.S. ME ’01, ’16 HON NJIT alumnus Ying Wu — for whom the College of Computing is named — has been on the cutting edge of telecommunications since he graduated in 1988. After serving as a member of the Bell Labs technical staff, Wu founded Starcom Network Systems, which later merged with Unitech Telecom to form UTStarcom in 1995. This was followed by the founding of the company’s China-based subsidiary, UTStarcom (China) Ltd. Wu led the company in developing the “Little-Smart” wireless communication system which made mobile phone services widely accessible, transforming the lives of more than 100 million people. In 1998, Wu was named Star of Asia by Businessweek and in 2003, he was identified by China Central TV as one of the Top 10 Most Influential Persons in China’s economy. Wu also serves his native country as an economic development consultant.

Today’s students are lucky. They are studying the latest knowledge while the world is facing the greatest-ever opportunity in technology. Make yourselves ready! Ying Wu

D NJIT Welcomes New Class of Alumni at 102nd Commencement Ceremonies

ue to the largest graduating class in university history, New Jersey Institute of Technology held, for the first time ever, three commencement ceremonies at the conclusion of its spring semester, during which nearly 3,000 bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral students were recognized and celebrated their achievements with family, friends, loved ones and classmates. Of the degree recipients, more than 300 graduated with honors — 144 cum laude, 98 magna cum laude and 77 summa cum laude. On May 15, Dr. Leah Hope Jamieson, Ransburg Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Professor of Engineering Education, and John A. Edwardson Dean Emerita of Engineering at Purdue University, received an honorary Doctor of Science and delivered the commencement address in which she shared her perspective as a first-generation college student from Trenton, N.J. who attended graduate school at Princeton University at a time when there were only a small number of women students.

Jamieson distinctly recalled the first time when she heard someone in an academic setting use the expression “he or she” and asked herself the question, “Do I belong here?” “Most of us are in some dimension a minority in our communities,” she said. “Ultimately, the answer was yes.” Quoting Nelson Mandela, who famously said that “Education is the most powerful weapon to change the world,” Jamieson said that it should challenge us to take on the most pressing issues including sustainability, natural disasters and threats in cyberspace. “We have something important in common ­— we’re all the NJIT class of 2018, but each of us is unique...You are the NJIT Class of 2018 and you will do great things,” she said. During the main ceremony, the university also awarded honorary degrees to Newark Mayor Ras J. Baraka and Richard P. Sweeney ’81, a vice president at Keurig and a co-founder of the K-Cup single coffee brewing system, who received an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters and an honorary Doctor of Science, respectively. Mayor Baraka, whose strong relationships with Newark’s clergy and higher education leaders have allowed him to foster new collaborations on downtown and neighborhood redevelopment, education initiatives and fighting crime, urged the Class of 2018 to remain in the city to lend their talents and expertise. “We need your brilliance, creativity and problem-solving to make this city the best in this country,” he said.

GRADUATES ENCOURAGED TO SUSTAIN HARD WORK, PASSION AND KINDNESS Presiding over the ceremony was NJIT President Joel S. Bloom, who told the

graduates that our global knowledge base is expanding exponentially and technology is changing every industry in the world in ways that could not have been imagined as recently as a few years ago. “You are the ones prepared to drive these changes in the years ahead,” he said. “You will do it with hard work and passion.” In his address, Bloom discussed the three qualities that many graduates have developed: hard work, passion for one’s developing profession, and kindness toward one’s fellow students, NJIT community members and others with whom they have come in contact. “We have great confidence that you will continue to develop these qualities and succeed, because you already have demonstrated the hard work it takes to become extraordinary in any walk of life,” he said. Student speaker Mark Neubauer, who received a B.S. in biomedical engineering and served as NJIT Student Senate President this past year, advised the Class of 2018 to be resilient. “Being passionate about what you do is amazing,” he said. “Being excited to change the world is fantastic. But passion alone will only get you so far. You can’t be passionate about all the dull, exhausting, and unpleasant things life will throw your way. But you can be resilient and keep on moving forward despite them. With enough grit, with enough determination, you can overcome these obstacles and achieve the success you’ve always wanted.”


On May 17 and May 18, NJIT continued the festivities at its new Wellness and Events Center. There, the university conferred degrees to approximately 1,100 master’s students from all five academic schools. The occasions marked not only an educational milestone for the graduates, but also the first time commencement was held at the WEC. Agrim Sachdeva, who earned a master’s in information systems, and Jacob Weiss, a master’s in architecture graduate, served as student speaker and class crier, respectively, for the May 17th ceremony acknowledging students from the College of Science and Liberal Arts, the College of Architecture and Design, Martin Tuchman School of Management and Ying Wu College of Computing. For the May 18th ceremony focusing on the graduates of Newark College of Engineering, Majd Awad, M.S. in electrical engineering, was the student speaker, and Corben Fuentespina, M.S. in transportation, the class crier. The prevailing message to the graduates was to apply their academic success toward rising above challenges and contributing to their communities and the world.

Alexis Alba ’18 carried the NCE gonfalon at the May 18th ceremony.

As you know, New Jersey Institute of Technology is in the midst of a period of unprecedented growth and revitalization, one that touches all aspects of the institution. A key catalyst of this remarkable progress has been the philanthropic support secured through the NJIT NEXT campaign. This $200 million campaign – the most ambitious fundraising initiative in our long and distinguished history – has enabled NJIT to build upon its distinctive strengths, to usher in a new era of achievement and prosperity, and to bolster its standing as one of the nation’s leading polytechnic universities. Last year alone, 5,050 alumni and friends gave $13.6 million to NJIT, establishing 20 new scholarships, enhancing our rigorous curricular and co-curricular programs, underwriting cutting-edge faculty and student research, and funding iconic new facilities such as Makerspace at NJIT and the Wellness and Events Center. Though the level of private support achieved in 2017 is impressive, it is far from an anomaly. Since NJIT NEXT was launched in July 2007, more than 23,000 alumni, students, faculty, staff, friends, foundations, and corporations have collectively given $195 million (as of March 1, 2018). Such generosity has set the stage for the successful completion of the campaign in 2018, and is a primary reason that the university’s overall endowment last year surpassed the $110 million mark for the first time ever. Of far greater importance, however, is that these gifts have ensured that an NJIT education remains affordable for all of our hardworking and high-achieving students, and have significantly enriched their NJIT experience, both in and outside the classroom. Thank you, once again, for your very generous support of NJIT, for your continued confidence in the enduring value of an NJIT degree, and, most of all, for giving our talented students the opportunity to realize their full potential. With gratitude,

At NJIT’s May 2017 commencement, Herman Blackman ‘38 (left) received a special award for “most senior alumnus” from Steven B. Saperstein ’84, a member of the NJIT Board of Overseers.

1881 SOCIETY NJIT’s planned giving benefactors play a very special role in shaping the university’s future direction and accomplishments. The individuals who make gifts in the form of trusts, annuities and pooled income funds receive a lifetime income with the reminder interest coming to NJIT, and bequests naming NJIT as the beneficiary provide endowment for generations of students. Our planned giving benefactors are recognized as members of the 1881 Society.

Kevin Belfield uses two-photon fluorescence microscopy with fluorescent dyes, or probes, to image living tissue with unprecedented resolution at depths up to 2 millimeters in a variety of tissue types.



sudden proliferation of new blood vessels inside the body can bode well or poorly for a patient. If recovering from a wound, the faster new networks form the better. But an unusual growth spurt can also signal the presence of an aggressive cancer. Kevin Belfield, professor and dean of NJIT’s College of Science and Liberal Arts, is developing minimally invasive methods to monitor both: the pace at which wounds heal and the effectiveness of therapies that inhibit the expansion of blood vessels that feed cancerous growth. His probes, which use molecular tracking devices, aim to improve targeting selectivity, homing in exclusively on new blood vessels to detect tumors or monitor wound healing progression at a very early stage. To heal, lesions depend on the formation of new blood vessels to deliver oxygen and nutrients that support cell growth and tissue regeneration. When the process is well regulated, scars and infections are less likely to occur. Belfield uses two-photon fluorescence microscopy (2PFM) with fluorescent dyes, or probes (above), to image living tissue with unprecedented resolution at depths up to 2 millimeters in a variety of tissue types. The images, available in subcellular resolution in three dimensions, are captured by transmitting near-infrared light through the wound and, in the case of internal lesions, through an optical fiber. The fluorescent probes, which are injected into the bloodstream, include a biomarkertargeting peptide that binds with a specific

protein associated with endothelial cells in new blood cells. “What we’re looking for is high levels of a particular integrin protein, integral to motility and adhesion, that is expressed at elevated levels in endothelial cells in new blood vessels,” he says. The images also provide qualitative information on the blood vessels themselves; chaotic vessel morphology is characteristic of tumors, for example, while vessels in healthy tissue and wounds that are healing are more orderly and symmetrical. Image analysis over time provides quantitative information on blood vessel density as a function of time, information that can be used to assess the success of growth factor, an agent designed to promote blood vessel growth. “The ability to assess a lesion intact offers an advantage over conventional histological techniques in which the wound is biopsied and thin slices are analyzed,” Belfield says, “because the gelatinous nature of wounds at early stages often results in soft, nascent tissue being removed, providing an incomplete picture of critical early stages of wound healing.” The aim of anti-angiogenic cancer therapies, which curb blood vessel expansion, is to starve a tumor (below). Without new blood vessels to feed them, they will only grow one to two millimeters in size before they run out of oxygen. Currently, anti-angiogenic agents are being explored in conjunction with other chemotherapy agents. Belfield views 2PFM as a potentially

powerful tool for the detection of earlystage cancers, including lung cancer, which is most often discovered when it is late-stage and incurable. He also views it as a possible improvement over mammography screenings, which are unable to detect tumors that are less than a centimeter in diameter, whereas 2PFM can image as little as two millimeters of muscle tissue or blood vasculature. “Well over 50 percent of cancers are not detected until they are at stage three or four,” he notes. Belfield is collaborating with scientists at the University of Tampere in Finland on wound-healing angiogenesis and with researchers at the Sanford Burnham Prebys Discovery Institute in Orlando on blood vessel growth in tumors. He has studied other methods for treating cancers that involve the use of light, including the deployment of cell-killing agents whose toxic power can be controlled by light, which activates the release of an acid compound that creates a pH imbalance in the cancer cells. Localizing the cell toxicity to those regions where the light detects cancer limits the collateral damage, greatly reducing harmful side effects. “We’re targeting imaging agents to biomarkers as another platform for photoreactive therapies,” he says. “This will combine both the ability to image the tumor and treat it through a light-activated agent. These advances coincide with the push for precision medicine, which makes our work timely.” He added that researchers are also looking at 2PFM for use in endoscopy, colonoscopy and bronchoscopy. “It’s a way to gather critical information from any site in the body that can be reached by a thin, flexible optical fiber,” adds Belfield. “There are so many applications for this technology in neuroscience as well, including the detection of plaque buildup in the brain. In time, we will have a diverse palette of very useful probes.” n Author: Tracey L. Regan is an NJIT Magazine contributing writer.
