  • John Wise Named Director of the Center for Relativistic Astrophysics at Georgia Tech

    The College of Sciences is pleased to announce the appointment of John Wise as the new director of the Center for Relativistic Astrophysics (CRA) at Georgia Tech. Wise is a professor in the School of Physics and an award-winning creator of supercomputer-driven visualizations that depict the beginnings of galaxies. 

  • NSF Research Experiences for Undergraduates Program Returns for 2023

    Georgia Tech’s College of Sciences Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) offers summer programs for 2023.

  • At the Edge of Graphene-Based Electronics

    Regents’ Professor Walter de Heer has taken a critical step in the case for a successor to silicon, working with collaborators to develop a new nanoelectronics platform based on graphene — a single sheet of carbon atoms. The technology is compatible with conventional microelectronics manufacturing, and the new research, published in Nature Communications, shows the team may have also discovered a new quasiparticle. 

  • Healing Breath: Researchers Dramatically Improve Inhalable mRNA Therapy

    Messenger RNA, or mRNA, has been used to immunize millions of people in just the past few years. Among the most likely targets for future mRNA therapies are the lungs, given the large number of pulmonary diseases, such as the coronavirus, influenza, asthma, cystic fibrosis, and others. Now, a team of multi-disciplinary investigators from five universities, led by Georgia Tech faculty researchers, has provided a potential path toward that future.

  • 10 Years, 200 Papers: Two Physicists on Collaboration, Co-advising — and Complex Biophysics

    Over the past decade, Flavio Fenton and James (JC) Gumbart have enjoyed partnering as faculty, research collaborators, co-advisors, and friends. 200 papers later, they look back at 10 years of research, and to the decade ahead.
