Researchers at Columbia University have made a significant step toward breaking the so-called “color barrier” of light microscopy for biological systems, allowing for much more comprehensive, system-wide labeling and imaging of a greater number of biomolecules in living cells and tissues

The National Academy of Sciences (NAS) elected three Columbia professors into its ranks. Election to the NAS is based on "distinguished and continuing achievements in original research" and is considered one of the highest honors a scientist or engineer can receive.

After a comprehensive review of the nation’s top universities and research institutions, the National Science Foundation has awarded $3.74 million to Columbia University, City University of New York, and New York University for a three-year research-to-startup initiative.

Parallel application profiles, such as the ones above, indicate that applications do not consume energy uniformly, motivating the fine-grained energy management techniques to be developed as part of the CAREER project.

Computer Science Assistant Professor Martha Kim has won a National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER award to develop energy tracking and monitoring techniques to audit and control software energy consumption.
