Princeton University Research Day 2017

May 24th, 2017 / Advancement

Princeton Research Day—the second annual celebration of research and creative endeavors by undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs, and other scholars—showcased more than 140 presentations on topics ranging from the metabolism of fruit fly embryos to theories on why large-scale, complex projects rarely—if ever—stay on schedule. “Research is obviously one of the things that distinguishes us in our mission,” said Christopher L. Eisgruber ’83. “We aspire to contribute to the world through the research we do, the discoveries we make and the ideas we’re able to get out to the world.”

The May 11 event gathered presenters from engineering, the natural sciences, the social sciences, humanities, and the arts to demonstrate their findings via posters, ten-minute talks, and 90-second pitches.
