There is a growing among Columbia faculty and Chilean counterparts in collaborative research projects and initiatives, which is reflected, for example, in the four-month research project by Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory’s (LDEO) Research Vessel Marcus Langseth in Chilean seas with two local Universidad de Chile’s scientists on board (2016-2017); the Columbia-Universidad Católica Astrophysics joint-research program, which entails student exchanges; and the alliance between the School of Engineering at Universidad del Desarrollo, the Earth Environmental Engineering Center and the Waste-to-Energy Research and Technology Council (WTERT) aimed at developing waste-to-energy prototypes in Chile.
In addition, Universidad Católica’s School of Engineering and Columbia’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences signed a develop strategies to deepen the existing collaboration between the Institute of Biological and Medical Engineering (IBME) of UC and the Department of Biomedical Engineering of the Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (FFSEAS) at Columbia.
There is also an ongoing research project in the public health area, which entails strong collaboration between Columbia’s Aging Center and Universidad Diego Portales (UDP’s) School of Public Policy.
Three undergraduate Columbia Engineering students --Temitope Akinade, Sofía Barbosa, and Lance Avery Murphy—participated in an "International Seminar for Engineering Leaders" (ISEL), held in Santiago in late September.
Columbia University congratulates Joachim Frank, PhD, professor of biochemistry and molecular biophysics and of biological sciences, a winner of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2017, shared with Richard Henderson and Jacques Dubochet “for developing cryo-electron microscopy for the high-resolution structure determination of biomolecules in solution.”
