Global use of antibiotics is surging, according to Princeton University researchers who have conducted a broad assessment of antibiotic consumption around the world.
A study led by Princeton University researchers has revealed a gene which is implicated in promoting the spread of breast cancer tumors. In collaboration with the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey (Rutgers-CINJ), researchers hope to someday have a drug that could improve, cure or control breast cancer by targeting the particular pathways that are associated with metastasis and the progression of disease.
Princeton University researchers merged two powerful areas of research to enable an unprecedented chemical reaction that neither could broadly achieve on its own. The resulting bond formation could provide an excellent shortcut for chemists as they construct and test thousands of molecules to find new drugs.
Using a computer model to explore water as it freezes, a team at Princeton University has found that water's weird behaviors may arise from a sort of split personality: at very cold temperatures and above a certain pressure, water may spontaneously split into two liquid forms.
Scientists at Princeton University have shown that negatively charged particles known as electrons can flow extremely rapidly due to quantum behaviors in a type of material known as a topological Dirac semi-metal.
Two new research technologies — a microscope for probing bacterial biofilms and an instrument to measure the properties of ultrathin plastics — have been awarded funding at Princeton University through the Eric and Wendy Schmidt Transformative Technology Fund. Established in 2009 by Google executive chairman Eric Schmidt, a 1976 Princeton alumnus and former trustee, and his wife, Wendy, the fund supports projects with the potential for broad impacts on research in the natural sciences or eng
