A Conversation with Danielle Bassett: IEEE TechEthics Interview

Danielle Bassett, Eduardo D. Glandt Faculty Fellow and Associate Professor in the Department of Bioengineering, recently sat down with IEEE TechEthics to talk about the state of her field and the ethical considerations facing it.

Using Statistics to Uncover the Truth About Individual Cells

Researchers at Penn have developed a better method for interpreting data from single-cell RNA sequencing technologies. This research is built on a collaboration between The Wharton School, Mingyao Li at the Perelman School of Medicine, and Arjun Raj’s group at the School of Engineering and Applied Science.

Researchers Make Complex 3-D Surfaces with 2-D sheets

Researchers have developed a way to create flat sheets of a rubbery material that expand into three-dimensional geometries, such as a human face, when exposed to heat. The research, done by Hillel Aharoni and Randall Kamien of the School of Arts and Sciences and Yu Xia, Xinyue Zhang, and Shu Yang of the School of Engineering […]

Penn and Drexel Research Team Use Noninvasive Brain Stimulation to Study Language

Danielle Bassett, Eduardo D. Glandt Faculty Fellow, recently collaborated on a study that explores how the brain completes open-ended and close-ended language tasks. She worked with colleagues at Drexel University, including former lab member John Medaglia, and at Penn, including Roy Hamilton, associate professor and director of Perelman School of Medicine’s Laboratory for Cognition and […]

Quartz: GRASP Lab Spin-Off Exyn Takes Flight Underground

Exyn Technologies, a spin-off of Penn Engineering’s GRASP lab, makes software that can turn your average-joe drone into a fully autonomous flying robot, sensing, exploring, and navigating its environment without the aid of a human pilot or GPS navigation. Quartz’s Erik Olsen covered Exyn’s drone system in a story and video, showing drones exploring old […]

Danielle Bassett Wins Erdős-Rényi Prize

Danielle S. Bassett, PhD, Eduardo D. Glandt Faculty Fellow and Associate Professor of Bioengineering at the University of Pennsylvania, is the recipient of the 2018 Erdős-Rényi Prize. The award, given by the Network Science Society, or NetSci, recognizes the achievements of a young researcher working in the field of network science.

Alejandro Ribeiro: Expanding Applications of Network Science

The real power behind a network, says Alejandro Ribeiro, isn’t its component parts. It’s the myriad ways they connect with one another. The social bonds we share with others. The flow of information that makes the internet possible. Even the tiny electrical impulses that appear between neurons in the brain, letting us think, feel, taste, […]
