Peru has launched a COVID-19 economic relief package in Latin America, easing tax burdens, subsidizing wages, and guaranteeing nearly $90M in funds for small business loans. But according to a recent University-affiliated survey, over 70 percent of small business owners have no idea.
Assistant Professor of Molecular Biology and the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics Britt Adamson was named a 2020 Searle Scholar for her project entitled “Mapping the Processes of Genome Editing in Human Cells.”
Ani Liu, an artist whose work imagines the future, could not have imagined this present.
The Princeton Environmental Activism Coalition, the Princeton Environmental Institute (PEI), and the Pace Center for Civic Engagement hosted a discussion on environmental policy in the age of the novel coronavirus on April 24.
Three University researchers have been awarded grants from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to study how to track, model, and understand information about pandemics like COVID-19. The grants are part of the NSF Rapid Response Research (RAPID) program, which funds work that responds to imminent and unanticipated events — like global outbreaks.
“In the Nation’s Service and the Service of Humanity.”
A recent partnership with Rutgers University and the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) is promoting collaborations between University researchers and the medical community. The partnership, known as the New Jersey Alliance for Clinical and Translational Science (NJ ACTS), provides resources to advance the quality and quantity of translational research impacting health in New Jersey.
A study co-authored by a University research scholar that predicted as many as 250 million people in India could become infected with COVID-19 has gained attention in Indian media outlets.
A group of Canadian, Italian, and U.S. physicists and engineers, including University Professor of Physics Cristiano Galbiati, have designed and produced a prototype mechanical ventilator that may have the potential to be mass-produced for COVID-19 patients.
A new model developed by researchers at the University, in collaboration with Carnegie Mellon University, improves upon existing methods for tracking epidemics, including COVID-19. The model may become essential for understanding how the disease spreads, aiding world leaders in evaluating the impact of countermeasures like social distancing and quarantine.
A recent study on the stability of the virus that causes COVID-19, coauthored by Dylan Morris GS, in the Ecological and Evolutionary Biology department, reveals that the virus can be stable for hours to days on surfaces and in aerosols.
Ever wondered what’s going on inside a baby’s head? The developmental psychology lab — better and more pleasantly known as the Baby Lab — might have an answer for you. The lab strives to increase scholarly knowledge about how babies learn to see, talk, and understand the world.
In 1946, University chemistry professor Edward C. Taylor, then a graduate student at Cornell University, came across an interesting compound whose structure resembled that of pigments found in butterfly wings. The compound, later discovered to be folic acid, was a vitamin essential to the growth of cells — including cancer cells. Taylor thought that targeting folic acid might be an effective way to arrest the growth of tumors. He synthesized a potential therapeutic but didn’t have the resources he needed to rigorously test the product.
The University Space Physics group and David J. McComas, a professor in the astrophysical sciences department, contributed to building a record-breaking spacecraft, which is providing new, crucial information about the solar winds and particles from the Sun’s outer atmosphere.
On Nov. 8, Emily Geyman ’19, had one chapter of her senior thesis: “How do Shallow Carbonates Record Sea Level and Seawater Chemistry?” published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (PNAS) journal.
Dalton Conley and Shirley Tilghman have been named 2019 fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) for their scholarship in the fields of sociology and molecular biology, respectively.
To the surprise of climate scientists, our world is getting significantly windier. Average daily wind speeds have picked up in the last decade after over 30 years of gradual decline, according to research led by a team at the University’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. The study, published in “Nature Climate Change” on Nov. 18, could implicate a dramatic surge in the efficiency of wind power in the coming years.
The University announced on Sept. 25 the formation of the Princeton Quantum Initiative (PQI) as an effort to advance research, development, and education in both fundamental science and technological applications in fields such as quantum computation and quantum information systems.
The Office of Information Technology has implemented an additional security measure requiring duo two-factor authentication to access Blackboard. Students will be able to download this update beginning May 8, supplanting the normal duo authentication required to access University-specific documents and services.
Often, one of the biggest challenges conservationists face is the conflict between local communities and the surrounding wildlife — especially in a country with a billion people. Conservation biologist Krithi Karanth, explaining her work at a lecture Monday, has devoted her life to addressing this problem in India.
