The National Institutes of Health has awarded a $2.43 million grant to Princeton engineer Michael McAlpine, to investigate new ways to interweave electronic and biological materials to ultimately produce bionic organs for a range of scientific and biomedical applications.
Five members of the Engineering School faculty received the University's highest honors for their accomplishments in teaching and mentoring students.
Using 3-D printing tools, scientists at Princeton University have created a functional ear that can "hear" radio frequencies far beyond the range of normal human capability.
Using silk strands pulled from cocoons and gold wires thinner than a spider’s web, researchers at Princeton University have created a removable tattoo that adheres to dental enamel and could eventually monitor a patient’s health with unprecedented sensitivity.
Princeton engineers have developed a sensor that may revolutionize how drugs and medical devices are tested for contamination, and in the process help ensure the survival of two species of threatened animals.
Two Princeton engineering faculty have been named to Technology Review Magazine's list of the top 35 young innovators for 2010.
The school of engineering honored three junior faculty members with the E. Lawrence Keyes, Jr./Emerson Electric Co. Faculty Advancement Award on May 10. The award recognizes young faculty members who have established vibrant teaching and research programs early in their careers at Princeton.
Power-generating rubber films developed by Princeton University engineers could harness natural body movements such as breathing and walking to power pacemakers, mobile phones and other electronic devices.
Young faculty members who are pioneering new areas of communications networks, environmental sensing and other fields have received numerous awards for outstanding contributions early in their careers. Mung Chiang, associate professor of electrical engineering, received a Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers from the White House. He was one of only sixty-seven scientists who received the prestigious awards at a ceremony held at the White House last December. Chiang was
