Boilermaker research demonstrates excellence at scale: Purdue ranks in top 5 in U.S. for U.S. patents received
Accelerated bone fracture healing methods. User-friendly, smartphone-driven 3D free-form shape designs. Higher-yield, protein-rich chia seeds. A new crowd management system to help detect and safely evacuate high-density public events.
For third consecutive year, Purdue recognized as a top producer of Fulbright U.S. scholars; record-tying 8 faculty selected for 2023-24
Purdue University, for the third consecutive year and fourth time in five years, is in elite company, ranking among U.S. universities with the highest number of faculty selected for the Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program.
ReElement Technologies uses Purdue tech in rare earth elements production critical to semiconductor manufacturing, other new-age technologies
Many essential products, from smartphones and magnets to electric vehicles, semiconductors and wind turbines, need rare earth metals to perform.
Lilly Endowment Inc. has approved grants totaling $100 million to Purdue Research Foundation to support two major Purdue University initiatives, which together will elevate the university, its students and faculty and accelerate new investments in Indiana’s workforce and economy.
A climate policy that raises the price of carbon-intensive products across the entire U.S. economy would yield a side benefit of reducing nitrate groundwater contamination throughout the Mississippi River Basin.
Conventional silicon architecture has taken computer vision a long way, but Purdue University researchers are developing an alternative path — taking a cue from nature — that they say is the foundation of an artificial retina. Like our own visual system, the device is geared to sense change, making it more efficient in principle than the computationally demanding digital camera systems used in applications like self-driving cars and autonomous robots.
Industrial manufacturers and academic researchers can use patented, innovative laser techniques developed at Purdue University to produce high-tech materials such as semiconductor oxide thin films and metals with high performance under extreme conditions and conduct ultrafine-scale manipulation of physical properties in nanomaterials.
