The nine-week program lets students from underrepresented groups at other undergraduate institutions conduct research full-time in a Princeton chemistry lab over the summer. “The goal is to give the students an opportunity they wouldn’t have elsewhere,” said Susan VanderKam, who helms SURP-DC.
Fourteen international undergraduates spent this summer at Princeton as part of the International Student Internship Program (ISIP). The pilot program allows promising young scholars from institutions abroad to work with Princeton faculty and to experience the University's unique academic and research environment.
A study led by Princeton University researchers shows that weather patterns tied to climate change may increase the severity of algal blooms in Chesapeake Bay as extreme rainfall cycles flush larger amounts of nitrogen from fertilizer and other sources into the Susquehanna River. The researchers found that a spike in rainfall can increase nitrogen levels in the bay even if the amount of fertilizer used on land remains the same, leading to explosive algae growth that poisons humans and wildlife,
Researchers from Princeton University and the University of California-Los Angeles who investigated the genetic ancestry of North America's wild canines have concluded that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's scientific arguments for removing gray wolves from endangered species protection are incorrect.
Women could prevent contracting the mosquito-borne Zika virus while pregnant by timing the first months of pregnancy with seasonal declines in mosquito activity, according to a new paper. The paper is the first to suggest that women in the numerous countries affected by the Zika virus epidemic can still safely pursue motherhood rather than forgo pregnancy altogether.
Princeton researchers have unveiled a new method for transforming individual selfies. The method can modify a person’s face to look as though it were photographed from farther away, like at the distances opted for by professional photographers.
Engineering professor Stephen Chou and associate research scholar Liangcheng Zhou are collaborating with U.S. government labs to develop a more rapid, accurate and inexpensive test for the Ebola virus, with the aim of identifying infections before carriers become symptomatic and contagious.
Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment partners with U.S. Army on sustainable energy and environmental issues and research
The Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment at Princeton University recently signed an agreement with the Picatinny Arsenal Garrison and the U.S. Army's Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center establishing future dialogue and research collaboration.
A new study finds youth who are between ages 10 and 14 when a household member goes to prison are at a 41 percent greater risk for giving birth to their first child before marriage. This risk is especially pronounced when the father or an extended household member who is not a parent — such as a cousin, aunt, uncle or friend — is imprisoned.
