Danielle Jorgens, Director, Electron Microscope Laboratory; Restaurant Valparaiso
A revolution is occurring in biology due to new technologies in the world of electron microscopy. In addition to the monumental advances in the Cryo-EM, which garnered the Nobel Prize last year, a new wave of 3-dimensional imaging is taking over the rest of the electron microscopy field. With these advanced 3D electron microscopes, cells and tissues are being visualized at new depths and... More >

Eliot Quataert, Department of Astronomy
Scientists have recently developed a new way to see the universe, using the gravitational waves predicted by Einstein nearly a century ago. These waves can teach us about some of the most exotic objects known, including star corpses known as black holes and neutron stars. Remarkably, they have also helped solve a longstanding puzzle about where in the Universe some of the elements we know and... More >
