Robert K. Prud’homme, whose drug manufacturing techniques enabled vaccines for COVID-19 and treatments for many devastating diseases, has been elected into the National Academy of Engineering.
Princeton scientists are peering into the smallest corners of matter using an exceptional collection of sophisticated microscopes — some so big they fill a room. These remarkable instruments have established the University as a world leader in microscopy and led to countless discoveries.
Princeton researchers have learned to harness the gossamer scaffolding that maintains the structure of living cells and used it to develop a nanotechnology platform. The technique eventually could lead to advances in soft robotics, new medicines, and the development of synthetic systems for high-precision biomolecular transport.
