For more than a century, biologists ignored a fundamental question about how cells do the business of sorting molecules in a crowd. Then came Cliff Brangwynne, whose surprising work showed that certain proteins separate into globules much like droplets of vinegar suspended in oil.
The event will be held on Thursday, March 22 in the Frick Chemistry Building. Registration begins at 8:00am. The conference promotes access to STEM opportunities for young women in seventh through tenth grades. More information can be found at
Among the three winning research groups at this year's Innovation Forum, two came from laboratories affiliated with chemical and biological engineering.
In its eighth year, the annual "Art of Science" competition and exhibition, put on by the School of Engineering and Applied Science, recently gained the attention of The Wall Street Journal. A March 9 article features the above image of modified fruit fly embryos that display the Princeton University "P" and crest.
Princeton graduate alumnus Dr. George Khoury has been named the 2018 ExxonMobil "Analytics Influencer of the Year." Khoury has worked for the energy giant since completing his Ph.D. in chemical and biological engineering in 2015. He is currently a senior engineer.
Emily Carter, dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Science, won the ACS Award in Theoretical Chemistry, sponsored by the ACS Division of Physical Chemistry.
The Princeton Engineering Council honored five instructors this week from the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering with its annual Excellence in Teaching Awards. Winners of the award include professor Richard Register, visiting research scholar C. Morris Smith, and graduate students Michail Alifierakis, Chet Markwalter and Katelyn...
A profile of Professor Celeste Nelson and her research group hit the front page of the University website today. The article is accompanied by a compelling short video, which captures Professor Nelson’s personal side, introducing us to the ways in which her work in the lab is drawn from her broader experience of life.
Drinking is the principal route for water intake for most animal, a critical feature for their sustenance. The rules that govern this challenge, however, are not the same for all creatures, depending on their size and habitat. While suction is a common strategy, water uptake can thus take many forms, such as the use of hairy tongues.
It is a marvel of nature: During gestation, multiple tissue types cooperate in building the elegantly functional structures of organs, from the brain’s folds to the heart’s multiple chambers. A recent study by Princeton researchers explored this process in lungs and offers insights into the formation of their delicately branching, tree-like...
