Thumbnail image for NSF honors 3 with CAREER grants

The National Science Foundation has awarded Faculty Early Career Development Awards totaling $1.8 million to three Indiana University researchers, who will use the grants to improve understanding of disease treatment, equitable access to computer science programs and the dynamics of river pollution. IU faculty receiving the awards are Julia Arciero in the School of Science […]

IU Bloomington’s first Emerging Areas of Research initiative, called “Learning: Machines, Brains, and Children,” will revolutionize our understanding of how children, and robots, learn.

A study published in the journal Science led by researchers at Indiana University and Harvard University is the first to reveal in extreme detail the operation of the biochemical clockwork that drives cellular division in bacteria. The discovery, made possible through a revolutionary method used to color bacterial cell walls developed at IU, is an […]

Two Indiana University Bloomington chemists have received $525,000 from the National Science Foundation to advance research with applications to the emerging field of carbon recycling. IU scientists Steven L. Tait and Kenneth Caulton will combine their expertise in two distinct fields of chemistry — surface chemistry and metal-organic chemistry — to create new catalysts that […]

Biologists at Indiana University have significantly advanced understanding of the genetic pathways that control the appearance of different physical traits in the same species depending on nutritional conditions experienced during development. In many animals, nutrition — not genetic differences — controls the appearance of certain physical traits. Ants and bees, for example, grow into workers […]
