When preparing to talk about her research in front of a mixed crowd, Nancy Lu first considers the audience. "I want to motivate the problem so it can appeal to everybody," she said. In this case she was closing out the first session of the 30th annual Graduate Student Symposium, held by Princeton's Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering.
Celeste Nelson has been given the Mid-Career Award from the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES), the largest and fastest growing professional organization for bioengineers.
The American Physical Society has awarded Rodney Priestley the John H. Dillon Medal for his achievements in materials science and engineering.
Rawlison Zhang knew how to control a pipette. He had collected data all summer as a Stoll Fellow in Celeste Nelson's Tissue Morphodynamics Laboratory, sampling tissue cells and shedding light on the formation of developing bird lungs. But precision techniques were only a piece of what he had gained after nine weeks in the lab. The big payoff came...
The Biophysical Society has awarded Clifford Brangwynne the 2020 Michael and Kate Bárány Award for Young Investigators for his "beautiful applications of the principles of soft matter" toward the manipulation of cells and tissues.
The nation's largest chemical engineering organization has created a lectureship named for Princeton professor William R. Schowalter, honoring a career that has spanned seven decades and left an indelible mark on the study of fluid mechanics.
Audrey Shih, a rising senior studying chemical and biological engineering, is tackling environmental remediation as part of the summer internship program at the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment. In Sujit Datta's lab, Shih modeled how polymers behave in various environments to understand how they may work for remediating water...
Imagine standing in a lumberyard and being asked to build a house — without blueprints or instructions of any kind. The materials are all in front of you, but that doesn’t mean you have the first idea how to get from point A to point B. That was the situation facing the Princeton biologists who are building microtubules, the skeleton of the cell...
A formula flashed through Selena Chiu's mind as she watched researchers through the window of their lab. Her class had come to Merck in West Point, Pennsylvania, to see industrial engineering up close. Now, face to the glass, she yearned to be on the other side.
