A study published Sep. 22 in Nature details how an established physics theory governing bubble and droplet formation led to a new understanding of the principles organizing the contents of living cells. The work marks a seismic shift in researchers' ability both to understand and control the complex soft materials within our cells.
The Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) has named Princeton postdoctoral researcher Sofia Quinodoz a 2020 Hanna Gray Fellow, bolstering her study into how the structures within cells contribute to disease.
Susan Leggett, a postdoctoral research associate in chemical and biological engineering, has received a two-year fellowship from the New Jersey Alliance for Clinical and Translational Science (NJ ACTS), supporting her research into an especially aggressive form of cancer and connecting her with a network of advanced researchers beyond Princeton.
