Watery Droplets Form Structures Inside Cells

In a paper published June 26, 2017 in Nature Chemistry,  Clifford P. Brangwynne, Associate Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering and his co-workers have described the formation of liquid droplets forming inside living cells. Co-authors of the article include postdoctoral associate Ming-Tzo Wei, former CBE graduate student Marina Feric *16, Rohit Pappu, a biomedical engineer at Washington University in St. Louis, and also Rodney Priestley, Associate professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering, and Craig Arnold, Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and director of the Princeton Institute for the Science and Technology of Materials. More details about the work and its possible use in regulating biological processes can be found in this Princeton Engineering news article.
