Strategies for increasing diversity, inclusion, and equity in higher education are discussed by two leaders implementing them at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in the latest episode of Why Not Change the World? The RPI Podcast.
A perspective piece published online today in Science by Jonathan Dordick, the Howard P. Isermann Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and Matthew Brier, who recently earned his doctorate in chemical engineering at Rensselaer, explores the potential of emerging approaches for the remote activation of cell signaling to induce gene expression and the production of specific proteins.
A new book by Shira Dentz, a senior lecturer in the Department of Communication and Media in the School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences (HASS) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, was recently published by PANK, a press that “fosters access to emerging and experimental poetry and prose.” Sisyphusina uses prose, poetry, visual art, and other forms of expression to explore female aging.
An anthropologist and engineer from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute outline their interdisciplinary effort to increase awareness about how humans impact the planet on the latest episode of Why Not Change the World? The RPI Podcast.
In research recently published in Nature Communications, a team of chemical engineering researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute has significantly furthered its efforts to unlock the extensive possibilities of a type of material known as monolayer transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs).
