Students and faculty alike gathered together on Thursday evening for "Singing with the Staff," a karaoke event held in The Cove at the Busch Student Center.The event was organized by the Engineering Affairs Committee, said Riya Ram, a School of Engineering sophomore. It featured both students and faculty singing along to music from various artists and genres, and was planned as an alternative to a formal coffee house event.
Precision medicine can personalize treatment options for patients with cancers that are resistant to standard therapies, said Dr. Robert DiPaola, director of the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey, CINJ.Rutgers CINJ is the only National Cancer Institute designated center in New Jersey, one of 41 centers nationally that are designated by the federal government's National Cancer Institute (NCI). “That's important because, under that designation, there are various activities and functions that we have as an NCI designated center, [including] research activities, both in the laboratory, for new discoveries for cancer and prevention, and clinical activities where we treat patients that come in with cancer or high risk for cancer,” said Dipaola.
For people who are amputated on the forearm, the prospect of having a responsive prosthetic hand and wrist is right around the corner.A group of five Rutgers biomedical engineering seniors in the School of Engineering, Mohit Chaudhary, Chris Bargoud, Julian Hsu, James Wong and Rebecca Wenokor took on their senior project, “Brain-Controlled Dexterity Upper Extremity Prosthesis”, developing prosthetic hand and wrist that operate according to brain signals for a current Rutgers student.
In the wake of the underwhelming winter storm Juno that just passed, the wrongly predicted weather event sparked a discussion about how global warming impacts weather and consequently, other environmental concerns such as agriculture. Global warming involves the output of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, where these gases trap heat acting like a blanket to slowly warm the planet.
Reuters | This year, the globe is experiencing a weak El Niño, bringing more snowfall in the midwinter between December and February.

Nearly 76,000 people were diagnosed with melanoma in 2014, according to the National Cancer Institute website.Suzie Chen, a professor in the Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy, uses mouse models to study how melanoma progresses from its initiation to the possibility of metastasis, or the spread of a cancer or disease to another organ not directly connected to the cancer or disease. They then move from mouse models to human cell cultures in an effort to gain knowledge to use for human patients, she said.

Even though the Busch and Livingston campuses have distinct characteristics, they share the Busch Cogeneration Plant, which provides energy and hot water to both campuses.
The cogeneration plant on Busch campus utilizes three dual-fuel five megawatt turbines to produce electricity and heat water for the Busch and Livingston campuses.
Andrew Baker, an associate professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, was named as a fellow by the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
The American Association for the Advancement of Science has named two Rutgers professors as fellows, joining six other professors from the School of Arts and Sciences to receive the merit.
A team of Rutgers researchers from Bonnie Firestein’s lab assisted last semester in the discovery of a protein to detect the symptoms of schizophrenia in order to treat the polygenic disorder.
A recent breakthrough may soon allow researchers to treat schizophrenia before symptoms even appear.
Anywhere from 3,000 to about 50,000 people in the United States could die from the flu in a given year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.The flu presents symptoms similar to a cold but is far more severe, said Nila Dharan, an assistant professor of Medicine in the New Jersey Medical School.
Wise Young, distinguished professor in the Department of Cell Biology and Neuroscience, receives recognition following his keynote speech at ‘Researchers Present’ on Nov. 24 in the Busch Student Center.
Research is important to advance human understanding, said Nevin Varghese, a School of Engineering senior.
