Columbia Engineering’s photonics experts, including Professors Keren Bergman, Michal Lipson, and Alex Gaeta, are an integral part of an exciting new Integrated Photonics Manufacturing Innovation Hub in Rochester, NY, announced by Vice President Joseph Biden at a press conference on July 27.
Researchers at Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) have found that key parts of the human brain network that give us the power to control and redirect our attention—a core cognitive ability—may be unique to humans.
Research from Eric Kandel’s lab at Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) has uncovered further evidence of a system in the brain that persistently maintains memories for long periods of time. And paradoxically, it works in the same way as mechanisms that cause mad cow disease, kuru, and other degenerative brain diseases.
Columbia Engineering excelled in the University’s Research Initiatives in Science & Engineering (RISE) competition, held annually to fund interdisciplinary teams of faculty-level researchers pursuing early stages of imaginative, high-risk, and potentially high-impact research collaborations
