Tao Lab Publishes in Nature Communications

March 8, 2018

Work in the Tao Lab at the Rowland Institute at Harvard and at ETH Zurich has led to in a generalizable solution to a long-standing problem in material science. By exploiting crystal symmentry induced under optimized growth conditions, researchers are now able to exercise arbitrary control over the crystal orientation during the growth of single-crystal nanowires. The innovation was reported this year in Nature Communications and has been selected for highlight within an...

The Wang Lab has published exciting new findings in carbon dioxide reduction

March 5, 2018

Rowland Fellow Haotian Wang and his lab have identified a new electrocatalyst that efficiently converts CO2 to carbon monoxide (CO), a highly energetic molecule. Their findings were published February 1, 2018 in Energy & Environmental Science.

The journal article in full can be found at http://pubs.rsc.org/en/content/articlehtml/2018/ee/c7ee03245e.

Wang Lab article published in Nature Catalysis online publication

January 24, 2018

The Wang Lab has developed a copper nanocube catalyst by Cu2+ ion battery cycling method that efficiently converts CO2 into high value hydrocarbon products like ethylene, ethanol and n-propanol. Combining density functional theory simulation on the facet dependence of the initial Carbon-Carbon coupling steps, this work demonstrates a vivid feedback loop between theory and...

RoLi Lab article published in Nature Methods online publication

RoLi Lab article published in Nature Methods online publication

September 11, 2017

The RoLi Lab has developed a microscope that allows neuroscientists to record the activity of every neuron in a fish brain while the animal is freely swimming and interacting with the world. This work expands the repertoire of natural behaviors that can be studied with cellular resolution calcium imaging, including spatial navigation, social behavior, feeding and reward.

Brucker Lab Awarded 2017 Milton Fund

Brucker Lab Awarded 2017 Milton Fund

June 2, 2017
The Brucker lab has been awarded this year’s Milton Fund to study the impact of agrochemicals on honeybee microbiomes. This work will bring a better understanding to the the function of the millions of bacteria that live in animals guts and their ability to detoxify xenobiotic chemicals. Local beekeeping organizations have volunteered to participate in this study of microbiomes in their hives to better understand bee health.
