Description:

Princeton University is a private research university located in Princeton, New Jersey. It is a member of the Ivy League, and one of the nine Colonial Colleges founded before the American Revolution. Princeton provides undergraduate and graduate instruction in the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences and engineering. Princeton does not have schools of medicine, law, divinity, or business, but it does offer professional degrees through the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, the Princeton University School of Engineering and Applied Science and the School of Architecture.

Founded in 1746 in Elizabeth, New Jersey, as the College of New Jersey, Princeton was the fourth chartered institution of higher education in the American colonies. Princeton had close ties to the Presbyterian Church, but has never been affiliated with any denomination. Currently, the university has ties with the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton Theological Seminary, and the Westminster Choir College of Rider University.

Princeton has been associated with 35 Nobel Laureates, 17 National Medal of Science winners, and three National Humanities Medal winners. Remarkably, on a per-student basis, Princeton has the largest university endowment in the world.

Princeton physicist Zahid Hasan led an international team of physicists who have discovered a form of chiral crystals — crystals with an asymmetry like biological “handedness” — that host slow light-like massless electrons. The movement of some groups of electrons in these crystals mimics the behavior of magnetic monopoles. These strange properties may be utilized for next-generation quantum, magnetic and optical technologies.

Researchers led by Princeton’s Stanislav Shvartsman have found that the DNA of fruit fly embryos must obey a natural speed limit when it comes to replicating their genomes. Eggs with a mutation that allow for overproduction of DNA end in catastrophic failure at the moment they would begin to take shape.
