Lots in Translation
Caltech scientists and engineers are translating inquiries into insights and ideas into inventions.
Take a look.
Cutting the Guesswork
One day, people with paraplegia may be able to stand and walk, thanks to a treatment that Caltech graduate student Ellen Feldman is helping develop.
A Translator of His Own Work
Mitch Guttman fashioned himself a biologist as well as a builder of scientific tools, methods, and algorithms when he arrived at Caltech in 2013. Others, the assistant professor of biology thought, would translate his fundamental science into more effective treatments for patients.
Today, he has a different perspective.
Six Lessons from 12 Weeks in France
In her third year at Caltech, biological engineering undergraduate Anusha Nathan took her education to a new place—5,000 miles away. She enrolled in Caltech’s exchange program with École Polytechnique, one of France’s top universities in bioengineering, biology, and health sciences.
We translated her 12 weeks in France into a set of lessons—about science, language, and life.
So, What Do You Do?
We gave five Caltech postdoctoral scholars and graduate students a challenge: Using the simplest terms possible, tell us about a concept related to your research. Here’s what they said.
