    Four hundred years ago, no less a sailor than Sir Walter Raleigh set mathematicians the challenge of packing cannonballs onto the deck of a ship for maximum quantity. The astronomer Johannes Kepler offered a solution, later known as Kepler’s Conjecture  – a mathematical equation we see today in supermarkets that stack oranges into pyramids. 

  • Princeton team discovers new organelle involved in cancer metastasis

    by Liz Fuller-Wright, Office of Communications

    Some of Princeton’s leading cancer researchers were startled to discover that what they thought was a straightforward investigation into how cancer spreads through the body — metastasis — turned up evidence of liquid-liquid phase separations: the new field of biology research that investigates how liquid blobs of living materials merge into each other, similar to the movements seen in a lava lamp or in liquid mercury.

  • From lab to everyday life: Princeton accelerator fund supports promising innovations

    Friday, Mar 5, 2021
    by Catherine Zandonella, Office of the Dean for Research

    Seven technologies that address some of society’s biggest challenges — from foolproof antibiotics to low-cost water purification — will receive support for research and development through Princeton’s Intellectual Property Accelerator Fund

    The program gives discoveries an extra push through the development pipeline to bring technologies to the stage where they are ready for further investment, from either a startup or a larger company.
