Graduate student Brian Ell speaks about his research on small RNAs as novel therapeutics for the treatment of bone metastatic cancer.
Princeton University's School of Engineering is unique in combining the strengths of a world-leading research institution with the qualities of an outstanding liberal arts college.
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.
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.
By studying the common fruitfly, Stas Shvartsman's lab in the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics is learning how cells signal each other in order to grow from the simple structure of an embryo into a full-grown, complex creature.
Princeton Professor Jorge Sarmiento studies the vital role Earth's oceans play in the complex biochemical process through which carbon is exchanged among water, soil and atmosphere.
This virtual 3-D walkthrough of four principal buildings uncovered during Princeton University's archaeological excavations in Cyprus is part of the Princeton Art Museum's City of Gold exhibit. The animations were created by graduate and undergraduate students under the direction of Joanna Smith, a lecturer in art and archaeology, and Szymon Rusinkiewicz, a professor of computer science.
Emily Carter, founding director of the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment at Princeton, talks about why she decided to devote her career to energy research.
New laser sensors use quantum cascade lasers to perform chemical fingerprinting of the greenhouse gases carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, methane and water vapor, as well as ammonia and carbon monoxide, which are related to air quality. These trace gas sensors were developed in laboratories that are part of Princeton's Mid-InfraRed Technologies for Health and the Environment (MIRTHE), a center funded by the National Science Foundation.
The second in a series of profiles of graduate students and post-docs in the Department of Chemistry across the spectrum of specialties: organic, inorganic, physical, chemical biology and theoretical. This profile features postdoctoral researcher Kevin Welsher in the physical chemistry group of Associate Professor Haw Yang.
