How should society decide who gets a liver transplant? Should there be marketplaces for data in the near future and how should these markets be run? If a driverless car kills someone, who is at fault? And how can randomness help optimize algorithms used in machine learning?
These questions and others, from the highly technical to the broadly applicable, were discussed at the inaugural Princeton Day of Optimization, a day-long conference on Friday, Sept. 28.

Scientists have long prized the roundworm Caenorhabditis elegans as a model for studying the biology of multicellular organisms. The millimeter-long worms are easy to grow in the lab and manipulate genetically, and they have only around 1,000 cells, making them a powerful system for probing intricacies of development, behavior and metabolism.

With the goal of creating next-generation computing power to support high-energy physics research, the National Science Foundation (NSF) announced today that Princeton University will lead a new NSF-funded coalition of 17 research universities to be called the Institute for Research and Innovation in Software for High Energy Physics (IRIS-HEP).
The institute will develop computing software and expertise to enable a new era of discovery at the world's most powerful physics experiment, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland.

Princeton researchers have developed a new computational method that increases the ability to track the spread of cancer cells from one part of the body to another.
This migration of cells can lead to metastatic disease, which causes about 90 percent of cancer deaths from solid tumors — masses of cells that grow in organs such as the breast, prostate or colon. Understanding the drivers of metastasis could lead to new treatments aimed at blocking the process of cancer spreading through the body.
