Howard A. Stone, Donald R. Dixon '69 and Elizabeth W. Dixon Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and Associated Faculty in Chemical and Biological Engineering, received the President's Award for Distinguished Teaching at the University's Commencement ceremony yesterday. This award is given to “honor a sustained record of distinguished teaching over the course of a career at Princeton, at both undergraduate and graduate levels”, and is the highest teaching hon
In a paper recently published February 9 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), a Princeton team demonstrated that roundworms—specifically, the laboratory workhorse, Caenorhabditis elegans—carry with them bacteria—Escherichia coli—as they tunnels through the soil in which the worms and bacteria both naturally dwell. Along the way, the worms “drop” bacteria like breadcrumbs or seeds—seeds which subsequently grow into thriving colon
Howard A. Stone, Donald R. Dixon '69 and Elizabeth W.
