Princeton Research Day Puts Spotlight on Innovative Work Across University

May 14th, 2018

 

Spend the day — or an hour — at Princeton Research Day, and you get an eclectic tour of research at Princeton University shared through presentations designed to make cutting-edge work accessible to the general public.

For Sarah-Jane Leslie, dean of the Graduate School and the Class of 1943 Professor of Philosophy, that tour included learning how engineers can learn lessons from plants; about new techniques to fight disease; and about novel ways to address the world’s energy crisis.

Speaking at the event’s concluding awards ceremony in Frist Campus Center on Thursday, May 10, Leslie said she came away thinking that “Princeton students and researchers might just save the world.”

The third annual event featured more than 190 talks and posters by undergraduates, graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and other campus researchers from engineering, social sciences, natural sciences, humanities and the arts.
