Trenton, NJ - The New Jersey Economic Development Authority today continues its series highlighting how entrepreneurs and investors are helping to build the Garden State’s technology ecosystem. After decades building two technology companies, innovator and investor Derek Lidow, of Princeton, now devotes his time to coaching emerging entrepreneurs. A strong believer in the motto “anyone can start a business, but only leaders will succeed,” Lidow currently teaches budding entrepreneurs at Princeton University how to build successful enterprises. Having earned his Bachelor of Science in Engineering from the New Jersey Ivy League school, Lidow is passionate about nurturing New Jersey’s technology ecosystem.
Princeton, NJ - According to Catherine Zandonella of Princetong University, "It takes two plane flights and a 180-mile car ride to get from Princeton to one of the darkest places in the continental United States, the McDonald Observatory in West Texas. From this isolated spot, Jenny Greene looks out into the universe."
Princeton, NJ - According to Morgan Kelly of Princeton University, "An international team led by Princeton University scientists has discovered an elusive massless particle theorized 85 years ago. The particle could give rise to faster and more efficient electronics because of its unusual ability to behave as matter and antimatter inside a crystal, according to new research."
Princeton, NJ - According to Tien Nguyen of Princeton University, "Researchers at Princeton have developed a new chemical reaction that breaks the strongest bond in a molecule instead of the weakest, completely reversing the norm for reactions in which bonds are evenly split to form reactive intermediates."
Trenton, NJ – Twenty three of New Jersey’s colleges and universities make Money’s annual Best College’s ranking. Based off of three categories - quality of education, affordability and outcomes – several of the state’s institutions make the 736 school list.
Princeton, NJ - According to John Greenwald of the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory, "What began as a chat between husband and wife has evolved into an intriguing scientific discovery. The results, published in May in BMJ (formerly British Medical Journal) Open, show a “highly significant” correlation between periodic solar storms and incidences of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and giant cell arteritis (GCA), two potentially debilitating autoimmune diseases. The findings by a rare collaboration of physicists and medical researchers suggest a relationship between the solar outbursts and the incidence of these diseases that could lead to preventive measures if a causal link can be established."
Princeton, NJ - According to Tien Nguyen of Princeton University, "Researchers at Princeton have developed a new catalyst that may give unprecedented access to cyclobutanes, four-membered ring-containing molecules that have been relatively unexplored. Held back by the limited scope of previous methods, called [2π+2π] reactions, many cyclobutanes compounds have been out of reach, along with any unique properties that may be of interest to the pharmaceutical or fine chemical industry."
Trenton, NJ - According to BioNJ, "BioNJ President and CEO Debbie Hart, along with five other New Jersey executives, including Bob Hugin, Chairman and CEO, Celgene; Sol Barer, Ph.D., Founder, Celgene, and Managing Partner, SJ Barer Consulting; Robert Hariri, M.D., Ph.D., Chairman and Founder, Celgene Cellular Therapeutics; Paul Stoffels, M.D., CSO, Johnson & Johnson; and Shirley Tilghman, Ph.D., Professor, Molecular Biology, Princeton University, were named to the Worldview 100 as six of the 100 most influential people in biotechnology."
Princeton, NJ - Since mid-May, Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) has infected 150 and killed 16 people in South Korea. Now, after months of quarantine, hundreds in the region are being released. Laura Kahn, a research scholar at the Program on Science and Global Security at Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs discusses the threat around the world.
Princeton, NJ - ExxonMobil has signed a five-year, $5 million deal with Princeton University to pursue research on energy and the environment, officials announced Thursday. The oil and gas company joins Princeton E-filliates Partnership, a program founded in 2011 in which corporate officials and university experts work together on research.
Princeton, NJ - According to Emily Aronson of Princeton University, "The Princeton Entrepreneurship Advisory Committee (PEAC) has issued a report recommending a broad set of initiatives to enhance entrepreneurship at the University in a way that builds on Princeton's commitments to liberal arts education, research and public service."
Princeton, NJ - According to Morgan Kelly of Princeton, "People commonly perceive mountain ranges as jumbles of pyramid-shaped masses that steadily narrow as they slope upward. While that’s certainly how they appear from a ground-level human viewpoint, a new study shows that pyramid-shaped mountains are not only a minority in nature, but also that most ranges actually increase in area at higher elevations.
Princeton, NJ - According to Rose Huber, "The measles virus can cause serious disease in children by temporarily suppressing their immune systems. This vulnerability was previously thought to last a month or two, however, a new study shows that children may in fact live in the immunological shadow of measles for up to three years, leaving them highly susceptible to a host of other deadly diseases."
Princeton, NJ - According to Brenda Mikeo of Princeton Research, "José Avalos is an assistant professor of chemical and biological engineering, jointly appointed with the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment. His interests lie in the use of biotechnology to address important issues in sustainable energy, the environment, industry, and human health. Avalos’ research focuses specifically on synthetic biology and metabolic engineering for the production of biofuels and bio-derived chemicals."
Princeton, NJ - Edward Felten, a Princeton University computer scientist who is a leading expert on computer security, has been named deputy chief technology officer in the White House's Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP).
