Latest News From the College of Sciences

  • NIH Taps into “Omics” Capabilities in Atlanta

    What happens to the myriad molecules in our bodies when we move? The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has great interest in answering this question—to the tune of $170 million in research awards through 2022. Some of these research dollars will go to a metabolomics and proteomics (“omics”) analytics team from Emory University and Georgia Tech.

  • College of Science Physicists Named in Award for Detection of Gravitational Waves

    Members of the LIGO discovery team, including those from Georgia Tech, have been added to the official roster of recipients of the 2016 Gruber Foundation Cosmology Prize.

  • How Cells Swallow

    Cells have no obvious entryways for materials in their surroundings. They bring things inside by engulfing objects. Immune cells, for example, engulf pathogens, which can be larger than themselves. The process is called phagocytosis.

    Phagocytosis depends on a cascade of chemical signals that instruct the cell to envelop the target and form a space where the pathogen will eventually be destroyed. Using super-resolution imaging, a Georgia Tech research team has observed the molecular reorganizations involved in the process. The study was published in and featured on the cover of the December 20, 2016, issue of Biophysical Journal

  • How a Moon Slows the Decay of Pluto’s Atmosphere

    A new study provides additional insight into this relationship of Pluto and its moon, Charon, and how it affects the continuous stripping of Pluto’s atmosphere by solar wind. When Charon is positioned between the sun and Pluto, the research indicates that the moon can significantly reduce atmospheric loss.

  • Reforming Physics Education

    To advance its efforts to improve the introductory physics courses at Georgia Tech, the School of Physics is launching the Physics Education Research (PER) colloquium series, beginning on Jan. 9, 2017.
