    An international team of particle physicists have paused their search for dark matter to focus on the needs of victims of the global pandemic — in particular, their need to breathe.

    In severe cases, COVID-19 can lead to pneumonia requiring mechanical ventilation, but the world’s supply of ventilators has proven too small for the exponentially increasing demand.

  • Rodney Priestley assumes new role as innovation leader at Princeton

    Wednesday, Feb 5, 2020
    As the University's innovation leader, Priestley, a professor of chemical and biological engineering, will oversee efforts to grow Princeton's culture of innovation as a means to further its teaching and research mission and enhance its impact on the world.
  • Foam offers way to manipulate light

    Tuesday, Nov 19, 2019
    by Steven Schultz, Office of Engineering Communications

    There is more to foam than meets the eye. Literally. A study by Princeton scientists has shown that a type of foam long studied by researchers is able to block particular wavelengths of light, a coveted property for next-generation information technology that uses light instead of electricity.

  • Schmidt DataX Fund supports research projects that harness data science to speed up discovery
