    Mention fusion energy, and people around here will think of the breakthroughs happening at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) in fusing — combining — the nuclei of hydrogen isotopes. But there are other kinds of fusion power, including one long shot that just got a big boost from the Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E).

    by Wright Señeres, Princeton Entrepreneurship Council

    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 chemists find the surprisingly simple way mammals keep their bloodstream in balance

    by Wendy Plump, Department of Chemistry

    Chemists tend to think of the human body as operating out of a sense-and-respond paradigm. For example, you eat sugar, the pancreas senses the intake, and it responds by releasing the hormone insulin to keep your glucose levels in check.

    Scientists have long wondered whether there is a similar regulatory strategy for clearing other metabolites, like amino acids, to keep blood levels in a healthy range.

    The short answer: Nope.

  • Princeton joins new Air Force regional research hub

    Monday, Feb 28, 2022
    by Cornell University

    Princeton is a founding member of a newly announced three-year, $8.9 million cooperative agreement from the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) led by Cornell University to launch a regional research hub that will spark collaborations between partners in academia, government and industry from across the Middle Atlantic region.

    The hub’s goal is to accelerate the translation of ideas into economic impact and jobs by leveraging intellectual property and new business opportunities that benefit both commercial and defense markets.
