Researchers have developed an audio-based interface that can easily be integrated into existing video games, enabling people who are visually impaired to play with the same speed and control as sighted players, with full 3D graphics and complex, challenging racetracks.
Scientists have developed a new blood test that improves on existing options for diagnosing a Zika infection by extending the window of accurate detection from weeks to months after the onset of infection.
Neuroscientists, using rats, have demonstrated the brain's flexibility by training neurons that normally process input from the eyes to control a computer-generated tone.
Researchers have developed a microneedle skin patch that delivers nanoparticles full of fat-shrinking drugs to potentially treat obesity and diabetes.
Researchers at Columbia University say genetic variants linked to Alzheimer’s disease and heavy smoking are less frequent in people with longer lifespans, suggesting that natural selection is weeding out these unfavorable variants in both populations.

Computer Science Professor Sal Stolfo and his former student Ang Cui, whose cybersecurity research has discovered dozens of serious flaws, have developed Symbiote defense technology that significantly reduces the threat of embedded device malware attacks on end users and organizations.

Scientists say increasing heat drives moisture from ground.
For more than 250 years, Columbia has been a leader in higher education in the nation and around the world.
