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...
