Humor, vision, and drive: The road to a Nobel Prize, observed from the sidelines

“The week of Oct. 4, 2021 saw two Princeton University professors awarded Nobel prizes in Physics and Chemistry, and one alum the Nobel Peace Prize. Syukuro Manabe, David MacMillan, and Maria Ressa ’86 became household names within a week — but to some, they were known and revered long before the international accolades. The Daily Princetonian spoke with people close to the award winners — colleagues, students, and former classmates — to learn more about the people behind the achievements.”

Only human: Reflections from a pre-med in a pandemic

“When I tell people that I want to be a doctor, most of the responses I get focus on the clinical and scientific aspects of the job. I’m keenly aware of the fact that I’m viewed as one of those pillars of science and logic — someone who is simply providing the next diagnosis, seeing the next patient, filling out the next chart. But as I’ve learned from this pandemic, it is the resilience, dedication, and paramount concern for the greater good that keeps that pillar standing strong.”

Princeton clinic begins booster shot administration

“It’s important for students who might qualify under the current conditions for the booster to consult with their doctors. But if someone decides to get the booster, I think the University clinic is a great place to get it,” Naomi Hess ’22 said.

Princeton to ‘encourage’ mask-wearing for vaccinated individuals, stops short of mask mandate

Given new CDC guidance around indoor masking due to the rise in the Delta variant of COVID-19, unvaccinated individuals will be required to wear masks indoors on campus. This rule will likely only impact a small portion of the population, with over 90 percent of employees and around 90 percent of students already having verified that they are vaccinated.
