Research Day

Princeton University Research Day 2016

May 11th, 2016 / Advancement

From nano-scale sensors to costume design, drosophila morphogenesis to opera, sea urchins to Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Princeton’s first Research Day offered a mind-expanding view of work explored across campus. Undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoctoral researchers engaged visitors with ten-minute talks, 90-second pitches, performances, or poster presentations in Frist Campus Center May 5. The day—to become an annual event—showcased talented Princetonians who will be at the forefront of tomorrow’s scientific and creative endeavors.

From Butterflies to Tomorrow’s Chemists: Professor Emeritus Ted Taylor Helps Discovery Take Flight

April 22nd, 2016 / Advancement

In his four decades on the Princeton faculty, Ted Taylor earned the admiration of his students and colleagues for his cheerful nature and commitment to rigorous research. Even in retirement, he has continued to support and shape new generations of scientists by establishing the Edward and Virginia Taylor Professorship in Bioorganic Chemistry and the Edward C. Taylor Fellowships for third-year graduate students in chemistry. The fellowships allow Princeton to fund students for three years—a rarity in higher education—freeing them from the need to tie their research interests to grant support.

Five Questions with Professor Lynn Loo *01: Engineering Solutions through Partnerships

April 3rd, 2014 / Advancement

In her EQuad laboratory, Lynn Loo is developing lightweight, easily processed, flexible, and often less expensive plastics to replace metals in electronic devices such as circuits and solar panels. At the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment, she is advancing that work by forging partnerships with key companies. Loo, who earned her PhD in chemical engineering from Princeton in 2001, is the Theodora D. ’78 and William H. Walton III ’74 Professor in Engineering and a professor of chemical and biological engineering. She also serves as associate director for external partnerships at the Andlinger Center.
