RIT is hosting workshops this summer to help high school students from the Rochester area learn about the science behind clean energy and fuel cells. The “Clean Energy: Electricity Generation Using Fuel Cells” workshops feature hands-on experiments and tours of RIT’s facilities.
Kyle Diller, a fifth-year computer science student from East Windsor, N.J., developed a plug-in application for the molecular visualization program UCSF ChimeraX. The application is currently under development at the University of California at San Francisco. Diller’s plug-in allows users to display an atomic structure as if it were a movie so they can see how the structure changes.
Researchers at RIT are providing a better map to the human heart. They are developing a critical tool that will help clinicians identify damaged areas in the heart to more accurately diagnose cardiac disease.
Jennifer Lynn Swartzenberg, a faculty member in NTID’s science and mathematics department, is the 2019-2020 recipient of the Ronald D. Dodge Memorial Faculty Grant and will receive $1,000 for her project to produce videos of established and new American Sign Language (ASL) signs for organic chemistry.
Assistant Professor Michael Zemcov interviewed by North Shore News for his part in contributing to NASA’s new mission to explore the origins of the universe by performing the first near-infrared all-sky spectral survey.
Scientists conducting cutting-edge research in computational astrophysics will converge at RIT for two workshops in June. Experts from RIT, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Berkeley and other prestigious institutions will speak at the events hosted by RIT’s Center for Computational Relativity and Gravitation.
The Democrat and Chronicle reports on a scientific discovery made by three Rochester Prep High School students working with Andre Hudson, professor and department head of the Thomas H. Gosnell School of Life Sciences.
