First-year graduate student José de Jesús Montaño López has received Mexico's 2018 National Youth Award, the highest honor given by the government to its citizens under 30 years old.
Graduate alumna Jean W. Tom was recognized with the 2018 Industry Leadership Award at the annual meeting of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers.
The Research & Development Council of New Jersey honored Princeton's Robert K. Prud'homme, professor of chemical and biological engineering, along with 14 other area inventors, with the 2018 Edison Patent Award.
Popping the top on house paint usually draws people to look inside the can. But Princeton researchers have turned their gaze upward, to the underside of the lid, where it turns out that pattern of droplets could inspire new ways to make microscopically small structures.
Princeton Magazine featured the research of Robert K. Prud'homme, professor of chemical and biological engineering, in their Fall 2018 issue. The article focused on Prud'homme's work, backed by the Gates Foundation, using polymers to solve critical problems in drug administration.
Using nearly undetectable particles, a team of international researchers has peered into the sun’s heart and sketched the intricate chain of reactions that drive the solar furnace.
Bioengineer Clifford Brangwynne, who explores the interior structures of cells, has been awarded a 2018 MacArthur Fellowship.
Nancy K. Lape has joined Princeton's Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering for a one-year appointment as the Kenan Visiting Professor for Distinguished Teaching.
For centuries, scientists have puzzled over configurations of objects that fit a given space. These packing problems not only have fascinated mathematicians, they also hold critical implications for disciplines from chemistry to shipping.
For bacteria facing a dose of antibiotics, timing might be the key to evading destruction. In a series of experiments, Princeton researchers found that cells that repaired DNA damaged by antibiotics before resuming growth had a much better chance of surviving treatment.
