Christopher Browne has received the 2020 Kristine M. Layn Award from the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering. The award, established in 1999, recognizes outstanding research achievement by a CBE graduate student by the end of the third year.
For undergraduates in the engineering school, summer often means a chance to apply their learning in new ways, whether conducting field research, working in industry or volunteering abroad. Last summer, with the COVID-19 pandemic disrupting many of these plans, some students’ research projects took them in unexpected directions.
The winner of the Sept. 29th event was Sujit Datta, assistant professor of chemical and biological engineering, who has developed a technology with the potential to aid the study and treatment of microbes in the gut, the lung, the skin and in soil. He was awarded $30,000 in prize money.
The Siebel Scholars Foundation has awarded Siebel Scholars fellowships to six Princeton University graduate students, including J. Clay Hamill, Jr. in chemical and biological engineering.
Emily C. Davidson will join the Princeton faculty as an assistant professor of chemical and biological engineering on Jan. 1, 2021, bringing expertise designing highly specialized materials in conjunction with additive processes such as 3D printing.
CBE researchers are making key contributions toward developing a promising new treatment for the widespread and devastating diseases toxoplasmosis and malaria.
Sujit Datta has been named to the 35 Under 35 list by the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), the largest professional organization in the field with more than 60,000 members.
Researchers in chemical and biological engineering have created a new and improved way to more precisely control genetically engineered bacteria: by simply switching the lights on and off. Working in E. coli, the workhorse organism for scientists to engineer metabolism, researchers developed a system for controlling one of the key genetic circuits...
Graduate student Shuwen Yue has received a 2020 Merck Research Award from the American Chemical Society's Women Chemists Committee. Yue was one of eight award recipients, each of whom received a $1500 stipend and delivered a talk during a half-day symposium at the ACS national-virtual meeting on August 16.
A Princeton team has developed a class of light-switchable, highly adaptable molecular tools with new capabilities to control cellular activities. The antibody-like proteins, called OptoBinders, allow researchers to rapidly control processes inside and outside of cells by directing their localization, with potential applications including protein...
