Matthew Montondo, Faculty Assistant to Professors Enquist, Gavis, Petry and Schwarzabauer, is the recipient of the 2016 Arthur Epstein Service Award.
Yibin Kang, the Warner-Lambert/Parke-Davis Professor of Molecular Biology, was named a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
Bonnie Bassler received the The Rockefeller University's Pearl Meister Greengard Prize, which honors extraordinary women scientists, on November 16, 2016.
Among the researchers highlighted at this year's Celebrate Princeton Invention was Professor of Molecular Biology Ileana Cristea. Her discoveries may lead to ways to treat mitochondrial diseases, cancer and viral diseases. Cristea discusses her research in this video.
Max Wilson, a postdoctoral research associate in Princeton University's Department of Molecular Biology, has received a $50,000 Innovation Grant from the New Jersey Health Foundation to advance two projects aimed at controlling cell behavior to improve treatments for a wide range of diseases.
Princeton researchers have for the first time revealed the mechanics of how bacteria build up slimy masses, called biofilms, cell by cell. When encased in biofilms in the human body, bacteria are a thousand times less susceptible to antibiotics, making certain infections, such as pneumonia, difficult to treat and potentially lethal.
Bonnie Bassler, Princeton University's Squibb Professor of Molecular Biology and department chair, was one of 79 new members elected to the National Academy of Medicine. Bassler is Princeton's 10th current academy member. Academy membership is considered…
Molecular Biology graduate students were presented with this year's department awards at the Annual Retreat on October 7th.
Molecular Biology Assistant Professor Mohamed Abou Donia has been chosen for a 2016 Breakthrough Award by the Kenneth Rainin Foundation for his work on IBD and Crohn's Disease.
Researchers have used mathematical analysis to figure out whether two proteins interact with each other, just by looking at their sequences and without having to train their computer model using any known examples.
Molecular Biology Assistant Professors Sabine Petry and Jared Toettcher are both recipients of a 2016 NIH Director's New Innovator Award.
Five Princeton University faculty members have been selected as inaugural faculty scholars by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the Simons Foundation and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
A former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, a Duke sociologist who has given decades of service and millions of dollars to the university, and a researcher tackling the most common cause of cancer death will be the first inductees into the Duke Graduate School Few-Glasson Alumni Society.
