Purdue University was founded in 1868 as one of the original land-grant universities in the United States. Purdue is the flagship university of Indiana's university system. It is noted for its exceptional College of Engineering and programs in aerospace and aviation. Also noteworthy is the Krannert School of Management. Purdue ranks in the Top 100 of American Universities, according to U.S. News and World Report. Purdue offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in 200 subject areas. Purdue publishes high quality peer-review journals and offers on-line public access to its research news. Purdue enjoys its nickname, Cradle of Astronauts as 22 astronauts are alumni, including Neil Armstrong, Gus Grissom and Eugene Cernan.
Transistor technology may improve speed, battery life for computers, mobile phones and other electronics
Purdue University researchers have developed transistor technology that shows potential for improving computers and mobile phones.
A unique system developed by Purdue University researchers may help reduce the number of people impacted by health problems associated with the accumulation of metals in the body.
The same way that yeast yields beer and bread can help hospital lab workers better track their daily radiation exposure, enabling a faster assessment of tissue damage that could lead to cancer.
Purdue University researchers have developed a method to detoxify water with chlorine and ultraviolet radiation, which may provide new hope for water-stressed areas and help promote the reuse of wastewater.
When the United States pulled out of the Paris Climate Accord last year, 20 states—including New York and California—resolved to form a new, nonfederal agreement to address climate change and greenhouse gas emissions.
The incredible amount of genetic diversity in parasites means humans are often infected with multiple strains, which could make infections worse and increase the prevalence of the parasite over time, according to a new study.
A Purdue University study has uncovered mechanisms that lead to stem cell formation and maintenance in plants. The findings may one day allow scientists to manipulate stem cell production to increase biomass that can be used ...
Thousands of planets have been discovered in the last few decades, although astronomers tell us there are probably billions. In such a large and diverse set of solar systems, it seems impossible that humans could be the only ...
'Tornado' lab-on-a-chip technology with micro tweezers to detect dangerous viruses, biological contaminants
Purdue University researchers have developed a new class of optical nanotweezers that can trap and detect biomolecules, viruses and DNA more rapidly. The technology can also use light to promptly detect cancer or improve ...
Replacing traditional computer chip components with light-based counterparts will eventually make electronic devices faster due to the wide bandwidth of light.
