Women make up 39 percent of Cornell's engineering undergraduates – almost twice the national average, according to a National Science Foundation report. The report also found Cornell has made strides with underrepresented groups in science.
Cornell researchers have developed a new technique to understand the actions of key proteins required for cancer cells to proliferate. This could help guide the development of drugs currently in clinical trials.
An undergraduate biology researcher describes for the first time how a small East Coast killifish jumps upright on land to see and navigate between tide pools - a possible clue into how sea creatures adapted to land.
Students have examined the commercial viability of an emerging business: farming housefly larva meal into animal or fish feed. They are working with faculty fellows at the Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future.
In a Cornell study of rats, researchers engineered a common gut bacteria, which when taken orally, helped control diabetes with the body’s own insulin. The study was published Jan. 27 in the journal Diabetes.
Biology major James Eaglesham '15 is heading to Cambridge University as the Cornell’s newest Churchill scholar. He is one of 14 students nationwide to receive this honor and Cornell’s 21st Churchill scholar since 1975.
Cornell scientists have created a new computational method that can identify positions in the human genome that play a role in the proper functioning of cells. The research was published in the Jan.19 edition of the journal Nature Genetics.
