Keynote Speakers: Omid Farokhzad (Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School) and Ralph Weissleder (Massachusetts General Hospital)
This eBriefing discusses nanoparticles, which have recently emerged at the forefront of cancer therapies, highlighting their uses in cancer diagnosis, treatment, and prevention.
Keynote Speakers: KC Huang (Stanford University) and Amir Yacoby (Harvard University)
Panel Moderator: Seth Pinsky (NYC Economic Development Corporation)
This eBriefing documents the 8th condensed matter physics conference featuring keynote talks in hard matter and soft matter as well as a special panel discussion, "Generation Tech: Tapping NYC's Science & Engineering Talent," featuring representatives of the new engineering and applied science institutions that are being created in the city.
Keynote Speakers: Leon Balents (University of California, Santa Barbara) and Mohammad F. Islam (Carnegie Mellon University)
At the seventh biannual Gotham-Metro Condensed Matter conference faculty, postdocs, and students shared ideas and research on condensed matter with fellow physicists, covering the spectrum from graphene-based transistors and novel chemical sensors to the fundamentals of colloids, metamaterials, and quantum spin liquids.
Keynote Speakers: Amos Avidan (Bechtel), Mauricio Futran (Rutgers University), and Eric Toone (U.S. Department of Energy)
The field of chemical engineering—poised at the interface of chemistry, engineering, and biomedicine—is well positioned to solve global challenges. This eBriefing reviews the role of chemical engineering in energy and healthcare research: from new renewable energy sources to improved methods of tissue engineering.
A recent conference held at the Academy asked a downright outrageous question: Can dementia be prevented by making changes to your diet? In this podcast we look at what the answers might be.
In the second of a two-part series, experts look at the links between health and nutrition. They examine everything from how nutrition impacts hospital stays, to cancer and aging, to developing food science innovations, and improving diet.
In this first of a two-part series, experts from various sectors explore the available options to reduce "hidden hunger"—micronutrient deficiencies in a population.
November 21, 2009
Graduate students from around the New York metropolitan area recently organized a symposium spotlighting some of the most exciting local work in soft and hard condensed matter physics. This webinar archive collects all the presentations.
