Clifford Brangwynne, professor of chemical and biological engineering, has been appointed the inaugural director of the Princeton Bioengineering Initiative. This initiative will support and expand the bioengineering activities already underway at the University, and ignite new directions in research, education and innovation at the intersection of...
Plastic pollution is ubiquitous today, with microplastic particles from disposable goods found in natural environments throughout the globe, including Antarctica. But how those particles move through and accumulate in the environment is poorly understood. Now a Princeton University study has revealed the mechanism by which microplastics, like...
Clifford Brangwynne, professor of chemical and biological engineering at Princeton University and an investigator at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, is one of two recipients of this year’s Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP) Nakasone Award.
On October 23, the Materials Research Science and Engineering Centers (MRSECs) of Princeton University and the University of Delaware hosted a one-day virtual symposium, called “Soft Matter for All,” aimed at highlighting the burgeoning field of soft matter and, importantly, bringing together interested students and researchers from traditionally...
Brian Wilson, a graduate student in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, was recently awarded the 2020 Dale Grieb Safety Award for his contributions to laboratory safety and health.
Robert Prud’homme named first recipient of Princeton’s Dean for Research Award for Distinguished Innovation
Robert Prud’homme, professor of chemical and biological engineering at Princeton University, has been selected to receive the inaugural Dean for Research Award for Distinguished Innovation for the invention of flash nanoprecipitation, a method for creating nanoparticles that promises to improve the delivery of drugs throughout the body.
Rocky Diegmiller, a graduate student in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, has received a grant from the National Institute of Health (NIH) that will fund his doctoral research for two years.
Princeton University professor discovers clues to Alzheimer’s disease, wins largest unrestricted scientific prize
Clifford Brangwynne has won America’s largest unrestricted scientific prize for his discovery that upends previous understandings of the internal organization of cells.
Christopher Browne has received the 2020 Kristine M. Layn Award from the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering. The award, established in 1999, recognizes outstanding research achievement by a CBE graduate student by the end of the third year.
For undergraduates in the engineering school, summer often means a chance to apply their learning in new ways, whether conducting field research, working in industry or volunteering abroad. Last summer, with the COVID-19 pandemic disrupting many of these plans, some students’ research projects took them in unexpected directions.
