  • “Think like an expert”: Brain scans watch learning in action

    Friday, Mar 26, 2021

    What does learning look like inside the brain?

    Can a brain scan reveal if a student is learning a tough curriculum or falling behind?

    These and other questions prompted a team of Princeton neuroscientists to launch an ambitious experiment, scanning 24 students’ brains six times during the 2018 spring semester to quite literally watch them learn.

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

    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. 

  • Electrical Engineering updates name to "Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering"

    by Scott Lyon, Office of Engineering Communications

    Name change more accurately reflects the department's range and impact in computer and information technologies

    In a change highlighting Princeton's broad investment in computer and information technologies, the former Department of Electrical Engineering has become the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE). The new name won unanimous support at the Feb. 1 monthly meeting of the University Faculty.

  • Chemist Chirik discovers “transformative” route to recyclable plastics

    Scientists from ExxonMobil Chemical collaborate on developing new materials that benefit society

    As the planet’s burden of rubber and plastic rises unabated, scientists look to the promise of closed-loop recycling to reduce trash. Researchers in the Chirik Lab have discovered a potentially game-changing new molecule – from a material known for over a century and used to make common products like tires and shoe soles – with vast implications for fulfilling that promise through depolymerization.

  • Princeton Engineering and Google AI Princeton researchers combine efforts to safeguard COVID-19 patients

    The ventilator team is now actively seeking manufacturing partners, especially in less affluent countries, and also exploring the suitability of the system for cost-effective and safe pediatric ventilation.

    Spurred by the demands of the COVID-19 pandemic, researchers at Princeton and Google are applying mechanical engineering and artificial intelligence in an effort to increase the availability and effectiveness of ventilation treatments worldwide.

  • Princeton Announces Engage 2020, New Innovation and Entrepreneurship Conference

    Wednesday, Oct 14, 2020

    The mission of Princeton University will be brought to life in a new way through Engage 2020, the inaugural innovation and entrepreneurship conference scheduled for November 4-6, 2020. Presented by the Princeton innovation and entrepreneurship team and its campus partners, Engage 2020 will offer more than 50 live, online sessions of relevance to academia, business and industry, Princeton alumni, entrepreneurs, investors, foundations and the intellectually curious.
