Kaila Lim said she wonders what would happen if people did not doubt themselves.Lim, a School of Arts and Sciences junior, was one of the speakers at “Speech Craft,” a public speaking contest held by the TEDxRutgers Club last night in the Center Hall of the Busch Student Center.
Richard Riman, a distinguished professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Rutgers, makes dust.This dust is made of rare-earth nanoparticles. Its infrared emissions will help detect cancer in its early stages through a process called optical imaging, Riman said.
Sabrina Strauss, a graduate student at the University of Notre Dame, discusses her research on super-heavy elements last Thursday at the Physics Lecture Hall on Busch campus.
The hunt for super-heavy elements is a very active field, said Sabrina Strauss, a graduate student at the University of Notre Dame.Strauss, a Rutgers alumna, discussed her work with super-heavy elements last Thursday with the Rutgers Society of Physics Students in the Physics Lecture Hall on Busch campus.
The solar panels on Livingston campus have helped Rutgers achieve its goals for saving electricity.
Storage logistics remain crucial for solar cars to compensate variations in sunlight, said Dunbar Birnie, a professor in the Department of Material Sciences and Engineering.

A new species of frog, which has a very narrow mating window and is silent for most of the year, was recently discovered on Staten Island, New York, said Jeremy Feinberg, a doctoral student in the Rutgers Graduate School in New Brunswick.Feinberg was at a frog extinction event on Long Island when he was told about the colony on Staten Island. Initially thought to be Southern Leopard Frogs, studies in New Jersey and Connecticut confirmed these creatures were different.
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology recently opened its Clean Energy Prize competition to students around the nation, said Andres Potes, an MBA candidate at MIT.
Christopher Poresky, a School of Engineering senior, explains the benefits of nuclear power at an Engineers Without Borders meeting last Tuesday.
Deciding between using nuclear power or conventional plants should be simple, said Christopher Poresky, a School of Engineering senior.
A breakthrough in drilling methods may soon allow the United States access to a coal replacement, said Corey Lang, an assistant professor at The University of Rhode Island. The United States only recently began accessing this resource, but has already seen positive environmental and economic effects, he said.
Photo Illustration | Scientists believe that ghosts and other hauntings are the product of cognitive functions and cultural norms. Children see ghosts because they cannot distinguish fantasy from reality.
Through almost 2 1/2 centuries of existence, Rutgers has seen many haunted houses and visiting ghosts. But while the belief in ghosts is real, ghosts themselves do not exist, said Julien Musolino, an associate professor in the Department of Psychology.
Researchers at the Cancer Institue of New Jersey, located at 195 Little Albany St., have discovered a protein called p53 known to be responsible for many forms of solid-tumor cancers.
Halting cancer may soon be as simple as swallowing a pill or getting an injection, said David Kimball, associate vice president of the Office of Translational Sciences. Researchers at the Cancer Institute of New Jersey recently discovered that a protein known as p53 was responsible for many forms of solid-tumor cancers, including pancreatic, breast, ovarian and prostate cancer.
A medicine developed by the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School might soon help treat the more than 25 million people who suffer from Type 2 diabetes today. Niclosamide ethanolamine salt has shown success in preclinical testing, said Shengkan Jin, an associate professor in the Department of Pharmacology. Type 2 diabetes is a chronic disease characterizing higher-than-normal glucose level in the bloodstream, Jin said. Obesity and aging contribute to the formation of the disease, but a person’s genetic component also plays a role.
