Orchestrating the Healing Process in a Damaged Cornea

SURF fellow Jacqueline Masehi-Lano has experimented with various growth factors that might inhibit the formation of scar tissue and promote orderly wound healing.

Caltech Researchers Receive NIH BRAIN Funding

Among the 58 projects funded in furtherance of President Obama's "Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnology"—or BRAIN—Initiative are six projects either led or co-led by Caltech researchers.

Science and the University-Government Partnership

Join us as a distinguished panel drawn from science, academia, government, and private philanthropy seeks to address some of the questions raised by the shifting models of support for research science.

Sensing Neuronal Activity With Light

A technique developed by Caltech researchers uses a genetic tool and light to view and map neuronal circuits.

Seeing Protein Synthesis in the Field

Caltech researchers have developed a novel way to visualize proteins generated by microorganisms in their natural environment—including the murky waters of Caltech's lily pond.

Checking the First Data from OCO-2

Caltech researchers work to make sure that NASA's newly launched satellite provides accurate data about carbon dioxide levels in our atmosphere.

Study of Aerosols Stands to Improve Climate Models

Researchers from Caltech and JPL have provided a global observational study of the effect that changes in aerosol levels have on low-level marine clouds.

Watching Nanoscale Fluids Flow

Researchers at Caltech have applied a new imaging technique called four-dimensional (4D) electron microscopy to studying nanofluid dynamics. In a paper appearing in the June 27 issue of Science, Ahmed Zewail, the Linus Pauling Professor of Chemistry and professor of physics, and Ulrich Lorenz, a postdoctoral scholar in chemistry, describe how they visualized and monitored the flow of molten lead within a single zinc oxide nanotube in real time and space.

Growing Unknown Microbes One by One

A new technique developed at Caltech helps grow individual species of the unknown microbes that live in the human body.
