Life expectancy for immigrants increased while that of the U.S.-born population declined between 2010 and 2017. The mix of immigrants and an increase in American-born overdose deaths each played a role.
A USC-led team of scientists has managed to borrow some of nature’s pages through a comprehensive analysis of how kidneys form their filtering units, known as nephrons.
For the first time, USC researchers have found a way to protect phone users’ identity and location, without compromising connectivity.
Researchers across multiple institutions are studying "super-puff" planets - the lowest density exoplanets ever discovered beyond Earth’s solar system.
A Princeton-led team of researchers has discovered a factor that promotes the spread of cancers to bone, opening the way toward treatments that could mitigate cancer’s ability to colonize bone.
Princeton University scientists, working with a Harvard graduate student, is for the first time applying deep learning — a powerful new version of the machine learning form of AI — to forecast sudden disruptions that can halt fusion reactions and damage the doughnut-shaped tokamaks that house the reactions.
Despite the threat of a global antibiotic-resistance crisis, the worldwide use of antibiotics in humans soared 39 percent between 2000 and 2015, according to a new study.

"In the past 40 years, the U.S. has been the world leader in converting fundamental scientific discoveries into innovative new treatments for life-threatening diseases," writes Shirley Tilghman, president emeritus of Princeton University and a professor of Molecular Biology and Public Affairs.

Princeton engineering researchers have illuminated another path forward for LED technologies by refining the manufacturing of light sources made with crystalline substances known as perovskites, a more efficient and potentially lower-cost alternative to materials used in LEDs found on store shelves.
Researchers have used a large-scale online study to establish two important links in the effort to better understand psychiatric conditions and the underlying mechanisms in the brain.
