Material coming from a Princeton research lab is full of holes — but that's a good thing. Designed to mimic bone, wood and other natural materials, the porous objects are lighter than traditional products and can be strategically inserted into structures to provide higher stiffness in areas with high demand.

A study led by Princeton researchers has revealed how bacteria navigate obstacles to ensure cohesive group movement. The finding has implications for understanding the general processes of collective migration, from cancer cells responding to chemical stimulus to wildebeest moving across the savanna.

ArrePath, a drug discovery spinout founded by Zemer Gitai, the Edwin Grant Conklin Professor of Biology and professor of molecular biology, has announced a seed round of $20 million to advance its proprietary, machine learning-based platform for discovering new classes of anti-infectives. The startup is addressing the global need for new antibiotics that more effectively treat drug-resistant infections and overcome antimicrobial resistance.

Princeton scientists are using innovative techniques to visualize electrons in graphene, a single atomic layer of carbon atoms. They are finding that strong interactions between electrons in high magnetic fields drive them to form unusual crystal-like structures similar to those first recognized for benzene molecules in the 1860s by chemist August Kekulé. These crystals exhibit a spatial periodicity that corresponds to electrons being in a quantum superposition.
