    by Catherine Zandonella, Office of the Dean for Research

    Inventions in biomedicine, drug development, solar energy, battery recycling, clean water and climate risk win out

    Seven technologies that address some of society’s biggest challenges — from foolproof antibiotics to low-cost water purification — will receive support for research and development through Princeton’s Intellectual Property Accelerator Fund

  • Bristol-Myers Squibb collaboration leads to open-source software to optimize chemical reactions

    Wednesday, Feb 3, 2021
    by Wendy Plump, Department of Chemistry

    Scientists from Princeton chemistry and computer science work with industry to create tool based on machine-learning 

    In the past few years, the Doyle Lab has turned increasingly to data science techniques to assist problem-solving in organic synthesis. Researchers are driven partly by a year-old federal initiative that seeks to conjoin data science and chemistry, and partly by the notion that a chemist’s time is better spent exploring new reactions than optimizing them.
