With a growing global population comes new challenges – ranging from access to health care to changing migration patterns. These are among the issues being addressed by researchers at the Office of Population Research (OPR) at Princeton University.
Results from a team including a Princeton University scientist offer a possible solution that uses the bacteria's own byproducts to destroy them.
Princeton University researchers contributed extensively to the Planck space mission that on March 21 released the most accurate and detailed map ever made of the oldest light in the universe, revealing new information about its age, contents and origins.
Polyakov was one of three winners of the foundation's 2013 Physics Frontiers Prize from which the recipient of the Fundamental Physics Prize was chosen. Polyakov was selected by the nine recipients of the inaugural Fundamental Physics Prize awarded in 2012, four of whom are faculty members at the Institute for Advanced Study.
Using a database containing detailed measurements of the men's haywire immune responses to the drug, researchers at Princeton University created an unprecedentedly clear model for how immune signals called cytokines interact with each other.
Mung Chiang, a Princeton University engineering professor who uses innovative mathematical analysis to simplify and strengthen the design of wireless networks, has been awarded the National Science Foundation's highest honor for young researchers, the Alan T. Waterman Award.
Mark Zondlo, assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering, and a team of researchers are mapping Earth's atmosphere from pole to pole in search of the most comprehensive picture yet of greenhouse gases and how they affect climate.
Three winning technologies were announced Tuesday, March 12 at the Princeton University Keller Center Innovation Forum. The Forum offers University researchers the opportunity to compete for prize money aimed at moving laboratory discoveries into the product development stage.
The National Cancer Institute has awarded a new $2.4 million research grant to a team led by Joshua Rabinowitz, a professor in the Department of Chemistry and the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics at Princeton University, and Eileen White, associate director for basic science at The Cancer Institute of New Jersey (CINJ) and professor of molecular biology and biochemistry at Rutgers University.

New results from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) indicate that the particle detected last summer is looking more and more like the Higgs boson, the particle thought to be essential for giving mass to the universe.
The Mamdouha S. Bobst Center for Peace and Justice supports research on civil strife mitigation, regional and global conflicts, and strategies for reconciliation.
Greg Kaplan, an assistant professor of economics at Princeton, and Sam Schulhofer-Wohl, a senior economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, argue that the shifts in migration patterns are better explained by changes in the labor market and the ways people learn about faraway places.
Three Princeton Engineering faculty members are part of a newly announced $194 million government-industry initiative called the Semiconductor Technology Advanced Research network (STARnet), a consortium of six new university research centers whose mission is to maintain U.S. leadership in microelectronics.
