Susan Daniel wields biomolecular weapons to fight COVID-19

Years before COVID-19 turned into a global pandemic, biomolecular engineer Susan Daniel was already looking for ways to defeat it. Now she’s expanding her coronavirus studies, blending engineering with virology and data science.

Stretchable sensor gives robots and VR a human touch

Cornell researchers have created a fiber-optic sensor that combines low-cost LEDs and dyes, resulting in a stretchable “skin” that detects deformations such as pressure, bending and strain.

Researchers trap electrons to create elusive crystal

A Cornell-led collaboration has developed a way to stack two-dimensional semiconductors and trap electrons in a repeating pattern that forms the long-hypothesized Wigner crystal.

Data, testing helped Cornell curb COVID-19

The Cornell community’s low rates were achieved through the tireless work of students, university leaders and experts across fields.

Engineer to model sunshine deflection for cooling planet

Thanks to $1 million in new grants, Cornell scientists will model adding reflective aerosols into the stratosphere, which may deflect enough sunbeams to reduce Earth’s temperature and limit climate change.

Researchers 3D-print biomedical parts with supersonic speed

A Cornell-led collaboration developed a 3D printing technique that creates cellular metallic materials by smashing together powder particles at supersonic speed.

Climatologist Warren Knapp, acid rain expert, dies at 82

Warren Knapp, 82, professor emeritus of meteorology and climate in the Earth and atmospheric sciences, and the second director of Cornell’s Northeast Regional Climate Center, died Oct. 3 in Ithaca.

Clay subsoil at Earth’s driest place may signal life on Mars

Earth’s most arid desert may hold a key to finding microbial life on Mars, in new research published Nov. 5 in Nature Scientific Reports.

Teaming up: Coronavirus research at Cornell

Cornell researchers are working collaboratively at the forefront of their fields to re-examine and adapt their innovations to develop the tests, treatments and knowledge necessary to end the COVID-19 pandemic.
