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.
Princeton University use mathematical equations to show that physiological differences between trees and grasses explain the curious phenomenon of heavy rainfalls and spells of drought on the African savannas created significantly fewer trees.
In 2012, Swahili lecturer Mahiri Mwita approached Princeton University’s chapter of Engineers Without Borders (EWB) with the idea of starting a project in the Kuria District of Kenya where he grew up. Three years later, a team of Princeton engineering students has helped design and build an award-winning rainwater catchment system there to provide clean, reliable water, and the group plans to build another system this summer.
LabMatch was created to foster meaningful research collaborations between first and second year undergraduate students and graduate students in the disciplines of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
