Cornell researchers have demonstrated a technique for writing, erasing and rewriting microscopic magnetic patterns – think the world's tiniest Etch A Sketch – that could advance research into ultrafast computer memory.

New research from Hening Lin, professor of chemistry and chemical biology in the College of Arts and Sciences, finds that a protein called TiPARP acts as a tumor suppressor.

Men participated more in an active learning STEM course, while women reported lower perceptions of their scientific abilities and more likely to feel judged based on gender, a new Cornell-led study has found.

Cornell researchers combined genetic engineering, single-molecule tracking and protein quantitation to get a closer look at how living bacteria identify – and then build resistance to – toxic chemicals and metals. The knowledge could lead to the development of more effective antibacterial treatments.

Séamus Davis, the James Gilbert White Distinguished Professor Emeritus of physics, has received a $1.6 million five-year grant renewal from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation to continue his studies of quantum materials.

Despite great strides in modernizing physics labs, often by removing rigid structures to give students more independence, gender roles are still present in these spaces through imbalances in lab work.

Cornell Tech has announced a $1 million grant from The Atlantic Philanthropies to jumpstart its Public Interest Tech initiative. Aimed at developing the tools, systems, datasets, research and education needed to address significant public sector concerns.

The commercialization of a Cornell-created antimicrobial coating technology that keeps surfaces clean by extending the life of chlorine-based disinfectants – by days and even weeks – is being fast-tracked to determine how well it can combat COVID-19.

Tom Ruttledge, retired senior lecturer in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, in the College of Arts and Sciences, died May 19 in Ithaca. He was 55.
