"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).
