“What is the engineer’s responsibility?” asked Benziger, a professor of chemical and biological engineering. That was the central question, one that Benziger would return to repeatedly in his course “Ethics and Technology: Engineering in the Real World.”
Michele L. Sarazen has been appointed assistant professor of chemical and biological engineering, bringing a focus on new ways to harness traditional methods for a clean-energy future.
Slimy, hard-to-clean bacterial mats called biofilms cause problems ranging from medical infections to clogged drains and fouled industrial equipment. Now, researchers at Princeton have found a way to cleanly and completely peel off these notorious sludges.
Creating new tools that harness light to probe the mysteries of cellular behavior, Princeton researchers have made discoveries about the formation of cellular components called membraneless organelles and the key role these organelles play in cells.
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.
