RF Taute Lab receives 2019 Rowland Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow and Undergraduate Program Award

January 15, 2019

The Rowland Foundation has awarded the Rowland Institute at Harvard $100,000 for one year to continue the program that provides mentoring and supervisory experience for a postdoctoral fellow and hands-on research experience for an undergraduate research student working with postdoctoral fellow.

The project will focus on characterizing and comparing motility behavior in liquids and model complex environments in two well-known pathogens - Vbrio cholerae and Pseudomonas aeruginosa whose swimming motility has barely been studied despite long-recognized...

Catalyzing CO2

Catalyzing CO2

November 8, 2018

Imagine a day when - rather than being spewed into the atmosphere - the gases coming from power plants are instead captured and fed into catalytic reactors that chemically transform greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide into industrial fuels or chemicals that emit only oxygen. It's a future that Rowland Fellow Haotian Wang says may be closer than many realize.

Mathis Lab publishes a new AI tool to track animals

Mathis Lab publishes a new AI tool to track animals

September 17, 2018
Quantifying behavior is crucial for many applications in neuroscience. Videography provides easy methods for the observation and recording of animal behavior in diverse settings, yet extracting particular aspects of a behavior for further analysis can be highly time consuming. In motor control studies, humans or other animals are often marked with reflective markers to assist with computer-based tracking, but markers are...

Congreve Lab Develops New Efficient Blue LEDs

Congreve Lab Develops New Efficient Blue LEDs

September 11, 2018

Perovskite materials have the potential to be great LEDs, as very efficient red and green devices have been developed. Yet in order to be used in applications such as TVs and phones, blue LEDs are also required, and these have lagged far behind. Researchers in the Congreve Lab have figured out a surprising way to fix these materials: by adding a dopant, their brightness and efficiency counter-intuitively increase, leading to the highest efficiency blue...
