A new study has modeled a crucial first step in the self-assembly of cellular structures such as drug receptors and other protein complexes, and found that the flexibility of the structures has a dramatic impact on how fast they join together. Understanding self-assembly could help in the design of new materials and medicines.
Pablo G. Debenedetti, the dean for research, has been awarded the 2016 Guggenheim Medal by the Institution for Chemical Engineers.
The Princeton University Art of Science 2013 exhibit can now be viewed in a new online gallery. The gallery features the top three awards in a juried competition as well as the top three "People's Choice" images.
Princeton University has appointed as dean for research Pablo Debenedetti, a longtime Princeton engineering professor and vice dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Science.
Students conferred their semi-annual Excellence in Teaching Awards to professors and teaching assistants at a ceremony Feb. 21. The awards included a Lifetime Achievement Award to Professor Pablo Debenedetti.
Acting Dean Pablo Debenedetti welcomed the record-size Class of 2016 to the School of Engineering and Applied Science and encouraged the incoming freshmen to take advantage of the "very vital and tight connection between research and teaching."
Pablo Debenedetti studies water at the smallest possible scales — zooming in on molecule-to-molecule interactions — but the implications for large industrial processes and many scientific fields could hardly be greater. Take water quality. Debenedetti and Sankaran Sundaresan, both Princeton engineers, are attempting to find a clean, new way to desalinate water by using hydrates, or crystalline solids in which hydrocarbon molecules are trapped in water cages. When hydrates form in
Pablo G. Debenedetti, a professor of chemical and biological engineering and vice dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Science, has been elected to the National Academy of Sciences, one of the highest honors given to scientists in the United States.
Three members of the faculty of the School of Engineering and Applied Science have been named fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Fellowship is bestowed for distinguished work advancing science or its applications.
Architects for Princeton's Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment have completed initial plans for laboratory, classroom and garden spaces that support the center's mission while creating an inviting new presence at the eastern edge of campus.
Researchers may be able to "freeze" water into a solid, not by cooling but by confining it to narrow spaces less than one-millionth of a millimeter wide, according to new results from an interdisciplinary team of scientists and engineers.
The American Institute of Chemical Engineers has selected Pablo Debenedetti to receive the 2008 William H. Walker Award for Excellence in Contributions to Chemical Engineering Literature.
Pablo Debenedetti, the Class of 1950 Professor in Engineering and Applied Science, has won the top teaching awards for both the Engineering School and the overall University.
Emily Carter, the Arthur W. Marks '19 Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and Applied and Computational Mathematics, has been elected to the National Academy of Sciences, one of the highest scientific honors. In a separate honor, Carter and fellow Princeton engineers Pablo Debenedetti and Marlan Scully were elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the nation's most prestigious society spanning the sciences and humanities.
Pablo Debenedetti, the Class of 1950 Professor in Engineering and Applied Science, has been appointed as vice dean, a new position that will help create a more efficient and effective staff for the School of Engineering and Applied Science.
Researchers were surprised to find a highly simplified model molecule that behaves in much the same way as water, a discovery that upends long-held beliefs about what makes water so special.
