Rutgers engineers recently created a way to print a 4D hydrogel that may be able to have a significant impact on the future of both the scientific and medical worlds. The project was led by Assistant Professor Howon Lee of Rutgers’ Schools of Engineering. The gel itself is highly reactive to changes in temperature, which gives it an enormous potential to function inside of a person’s body for various potential medical purposes, which may include, “soft robotic microdevices, targeted drug delivery and tissue scaffolds mimicking active bodily functions.” We laurel Howon Lee and the team of engineers that created this hydrogel for helping make advancements in important fields and bringing an even better name to Rutgers.
At $ to $7 each, Rutgers Cinema on Livingston campus allows students to purchase movie tickets at the lowest prices in New Jersey. Watching movies has been a common pass-time in American culture for many years. People use motion pictures to take their mind off the real world for a moment, which is a break students can use in their stressful academic lives that doesn’t involve getting intoxicated. We laurel Rutgers Cinema for offering students the chance to see new films for reasonable prices.
Students spend an enormous amount of time sitting on buses going to and from class. Additionally, many introverted students often do not feel comfortable speaking publicly, and as a result decide not to participate in class to the extent that they need to for full credit. Ian Dunham, a doctoral student in the School of Arts and Sciences, said that online courses can significantly benefit students with social anxieties among other things, such as issues with verbal fluency. Student lives can be stressful. We laurel the availability of online courses for their many beneficial factors to students.
Being a student is difficult enough in and of itself, but when you add parenthood to the mix it can seem almost impossible without help from your institution of higher education. Unsatisfied with the minimal help they had received from the University, Rutgers Students With Children (RSWC) has been pushing to be heard by the University administration for the past two years. In an open letter to Barchi, RSWC discussed its task in advocating for institutional reform with regard to student-parents. They have had over 35 meetings with members of the administration, and have received more than 400 signatures on their petition. We laurel RSWC for their efforts, and consider their work in speaking up for themselves inspiring.
OUT WITH OPIOIDS
Rutgers’ New Jersey Medical School (NJMS) will require all of its students to receive training that qualifies them to prescribe buprenorphine, a medication to treat against opioid abuse disorder. Buprenorphine has the ability to both reduce addict dependency and partially satisfy one's craving for the drug, preventing withdrawal and other complications. Opioid abuse is an enormous issue, especially in New Jersey, and the trend is only increasing. We laurel NJMS for making this a requirement and helping push toward an opioid addiction free population.

Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), and Marc Pfeiffer, a senior policy fellow at Rutgers’ Bloustein Local Government Research Center. Michael DuHaime, who graduated from Rutgers in 1995, has been ranked on the list every year since 2001. We laurel the many Rutgers alumni that were named to these impressive lists for continuing to show the world the level of the school’s prestige.
Rutgers researchers have developed new technology that can turn a solid surface into a touch-screen. The device, called VibWrite because it works by transmitting high-frequency vibrations through the surface it is mounted on, will allow the user to unlock things like their front door, car or any other lock by drawing a pattern or gesture on the surface. We laurel the Rutgers scientists involved with this invention for helping to maintain the University’s high standing in terms of scientific research.
