Professor Alain Kornhauser has been working with New Jersey legislators to make the state more welcoming to automated vehicle technology. Proponents want to change regulations to ease its introduction and support companies that are developing the technology.
A finding by Princeton engineers now shows gravity imposes a size constraint on cells. The results provide a novel reason why most animal cells are small and of similar size.
The Princeton chapter of Engineers Without Borders (EWB-PU) travels to La Pitajaya, Peru, to construct the first phase of a potable water system.
Nine eLab teams pitched their startup plans during a well-attended Demo Day sponsored by the Keller Center.
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.
Results from a team including a Princeton engineer offer a possible route to avoiding the growing problem of antibiotic resistance by using the bacteria's own byproducts to destroy them.
The story of Hao Yiu's senior thesis began with hearing about the near-death experience of six men who volunteered to test a leukemia drug. It ended with the recent publication of a peer-reviewed journal article that offers important insights into potentially deadly over-reactions of the human immune system.
Kaitlin Stouffer, a computer science major, was one of two Princeton seniors named recipients of the Daniel M. Sachs Class of 1960 Graduating Scholarship, one of the highest awards given to Princeton undergraduates.
A team of five Princeton engineering graduate students is leading a yearlong field research project using new laser sensors to measure pollutants with unprecedented sensitivity.
The Princeton chapter of Engineers Without Borders is working to build a pipeline to bring clean drinking water to residents of La Pitajaya, a small community in the Peruvian Andes.
A laboratory test used to detect disease and perform biological research could be made more than 3 million times more sensitive, according to researchers who combined standard biological tools with a breakthrough in nanotechnology.
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.
A sumptuous, stately tour of Princeton's Engineering neighborhood, narrated by Dean H. Vincent Poor and filmed by Michael E. Wood '08. This video was commissioned in honor of the Engineering Quadrangle’s 50th anniversary in 2012 and shows the expansion and breadth of Engineering at Princeton as well as its seamless integration within one of the world’s finest liberal arts institutions.
The following stories offer a snapshot of health-related research at Princeton Engineering. The research often extends well beyond the work described here -- to entirely different fields such as energy, environment and security -- because the research grows out of fundamental approaches to broadly relevant problems.
Princeton researchers are applying Darwinian evolution principles and computational optimization methods to create novel antibiotics and other pharmaceuticals.
