Peace, Love, and Parasites: The Enduring Legacy of Dennis Minchella

Dennis Minchella's journey at Purdue University began with a Greyhound bus ride from Rochester, New York, armed with little more than a suitcase and a vision. A first-generation college student, Minchella's early days at Purdue were marked by uncertainty and challenges.


Guang Lin leading machine learning research funded by NIH

Advanced imaging and machine learning may improve the way doctors detect and treat cardiomyopathy, the leading cause of death for children with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) and Becker muscular dystrophy (BMD).


Why does a leap year have 366 days?

You may be used to hearing that it takes the Earth 365 days to make a full lap, but that journey actually lasts about 365 and a quarter days. Leap years help to keep the 12-month calendar matched up with Earth’s movement around the Sun.


Purdue physicists discover a quantum state with a new type of emergent particles: six-flux composite fermions

Physicists at Purdue University have recently discovered, though, that fractional quantum Hall regimes are not limited to two-flux or four-flux and have discovered the existence of a new type of emergent particle, which they are calling six-flux composite fermion. They have recently published their groundbreaking findings in Nature Communications.
