    Discovery of COMPcc Nanofibers Opens Doors For NYU-Poly Researchers

    The lucky shopper at a rummage sale isn’t the one who paid pennies for, say, an antique briefcase. Rather, he or she is the one who brought that briefcase home and then discovered something really valuable inside. Dr. Jin Montclare and her graduate student Susheel K. Gunasekar at NYU-Poly's Protein Engineering and Molecular Design Lab can probably relate to that. They have found a wonderful molecular surprise buried inside a larger, and also valuable, protein.

    One Giant Leap for First Winners of the Soros Prize for Creative Engineering

    The winners of the inaugural Paul Soros Prize for Creative Engineering have set their sights higher than most—they’re aiming for the moon. The NYU-Poly students honored with the prize, which recognizes civil or mechanical engineering innovation, designed a robotic lunar excavator that not only caught the eye of the Soros Prize judges, but also nabbed high honors from NASA in the Third Annual Lunabotics Mining Competition.

    Paul Soros: A Life Not Hindered by “What If?”

    Long before NYU-Poly coined the concept of i2e—the interplay of invention, innovation and entrepreneurship—a 23-year-old immigrant and former Olympic skier enrolled in the university. It was 1949, and the name Paul Soros was not yet synonymous with engineering ingenuity and entrepreneurial genius. In fewer than eight years, Soros’ world—and the global shipping and transportation industry—would be transformed forever. [VIDEO:957]
