Wall Street Journal showcases embryo 'art'

March 12, 2018

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. The image comes from a collaboration between postdoctoral researchers in molecular biology and bioengineering, Yogesh Goyal  and Heath Johnson, respectively. The principal investigators on the project are Jared Toettcher and Stanislav Shvartsman, both faculty in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering.
