The incoming freshmen class will discover what Rochester has to offer and explore the many ways to get involved in their surrounding neighborhood during the 26th annual Wilson Day on Thursday, Aug. 28. Over 1,350 students will garden, paint, meet with senior citizens, help organize school supplies, and learn more about their new community.
The University ranks as the number one destination for graduates of the African Leadership Academy (ALA), a selective college preparatory program in South Africa. Last week the University hosted the academy’s 4th annual indaba, meaning “gathering” in Zulu – the largest conference in North America for students who have graduated from ALA.
Scientists had known that volcanic rock ran under the chain, but “what we didn’t understand was the size of the structure or its implications for mountain-building processes,” a University of Rochester researcher explains.
Universities can help drive regional economic development and strengthen American competitiveness — but only if the federal government continues to partner with institutions and commits to provide the sustained research funding that is required to, first, discover a good idea, then “translate” it into products and services that benefit society.
When stem cells are used to regenerate bone tissue, many wind up migrating away from the repair site, which disrupts the healing process. A new technique keeps the stem cells in place, resulting in faster and better tissue regeneration.
Medical devices, a small wind turbine, a motion-sensing robot, and even a re-designed lava lamp. These are some of the engineering solutions on display at the Hajim School Design Day on Friday, May 2.
Results of a pilot project show that physicians can successfully harness the power of crowdsourcing to help diagnose and treat patients in real time using a mobile app.
How can you reliably control the current that flows from one electrode to another in a circuit that is the width of a single molecule? The key, according to assistant professor of chemical engineering Alexander Shestopalov, is adding a second, inert layer of molecules.
