Princeton seniors Danielle Stephenson and Riley Wagner have been awarded fellowships from ReachOut 56-81-06, an alumni-funded effort that supports year-long public service projects after graduation.

Researchers at Princeton University have revealed the inner workings of a gene repression mechanism in fruit fly embryos, adding insight to the study of human diseases.
Akanksha Thawani, an explorer of cells' structural foundations, has received a Harold M. Weintraub Graduate Student Award from the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
Yueh-Lin (Lynn) Loo has been elected a fellow of the Materials Research Society, a lifetime appointment recognizing outstanding leadership, service and research contributions to the field of materials science.
Clifford Brangwynne, a pioneer in the soft-matter physics of cells, has been awarded the 2020 Wiley Prize in Biomedical Sciences.
Everything a cell does, from dividing in two to migrating to a different part of the body, is controlled by enzymes that chemically modify other proteins in the cell. Researchers at Princeton University have devised a new mathematical technique to describe the behavior of many cellular enzymes. The approach, published February 13 in the journal...
Yannis G. Kevrekidis, the Pomeroy and Betty Perry Smith Professor of Engineering, emeritus, has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering.
Optimeos Life Sciences, a startup founded by two Princeton University faculty members, has reached agreements with six pharmaceutical companies to develop therapeutics using a Princeton-developed drug delivery technology. The partnerships have the potential to improve the effectiveness of medications for the treatment of diseases, ranging from...
Michael Webb has joined the Princeton faculty as an assistant professor of chemical and biological engineering, bringing expertise in modeling molecular interactions important to health and energy.
As the climate changes, drought is worsening across large swaths of the globe. To combat this, a team of Princeton researchers is looking to an unusual water source – the air. The team aims to use thermo-responsive hydrogels, or networks of polymers that are commonly used in biomedical applications, for water harvesting.
