Daniel CASEY : Exploring a "little star" on Earth PhD Candidate Department of Nuclear Science and Engineering Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Darcy describes her realization that science is not something "done — in the past tense" by people long ago, but rather an exciting pursuit that requires social interactions to solve current real-world questions.
Claire Bucholz, a Ph.D. candidate in the MIT-WHOI Joint Program, studies rocks in an ancient subduction zone now lying in the heart of land-locked Mongolia. In particular, she has spent the last two summers, building an understanding of a unique island arc-related alkaline fractionation ...
Researchers from MIT have now found a safe and efficient way to get large molecules through the cell membrane, by squeezing the cells through a narrow constriction that opens up tiny, temporary holes in the membrane.
Stefanie Sydlik explains how her research on designing sensors for explosives depends on the principles of VSEPR (valence shell electron pair repulsion) theory.
