Mellon College of Science
Carnegie Mellon is embarking on a five-year, $12 million research effort to make computers think more like humans.
Jaycox, one of only 15 students nationwide to receive the award, will pursue a Master of Philosophy in Medical Science at the University of Cambridge in the U.K.
CMU President Subra Suresh and his collaborators have demonstrated a promising new method for 3-D bioprinting that could lead to new possibilities in medical research and applications.
The technology could help researchers better understand the role certain cells and proteins play in everyday function and disease, and could be used as a targeted therapy for cancer and other diseases.
The researchers’ findings are the first to use observational data to show that, in addition to mass, a galaxy cluster’s formation history plays a role in how it interacts with its environment.
A high-throughput, machine-learning tool could help researchers better understand synaptic activity in learning and disease.
The much brighter probes will allow scientists to detect very low levels of protein expressed in cells.
A team of astronomers, including CMU’s Jeffrey Peterson and Hsiu-Hsien Lin, has uncovered the most detailed record ever of a Fast Radio Burst — a brief yet brilliant eruption of cosmic radio waves from the distant universe.
Researchers will confront the challenges of big data as members of the Northeast Data Innovation Hub.
New Technique Developed by Team Including CMU President Suresh Removes Defects While Keeping Materials Strong
The technique, called cyclic healing, uses repetitive, gentle stretching to eliminate pre-existing defects in metal crystals.
Using computational modeling, researchers have come up with a design for a better liposome, which could provide the basis for improving targeted drug delivery.
Provost Farnam Jahanian announced today two interim leadership appointments in the field of brain science, an established and growing area of expertise at Carnegie Mellon University.
CMU's Shirley Ho co-chairs the working group for the upcoming major sky survey, which will improve our understanding of the universe.
Their findings provide new insights into how the protein regulates cell growth and how mutations in the gene that encodes the protein can lead to cancer.
The breakthrough could help see the pathways that degenerate with Parkinson’s and Huntington’s disease.
