Letter from the President

Hi everyone!

Welcome to Princeton’s Innovation website! I hope that you will enjoy all the different articles and content posted on our website that is written and edited by undergraduate Princeton University students. Innovation is Princeton’s premier STEM organization that works to promote science on campus through different events and publishes articles related to science to share with the broader community. As president, I lead the outreach component of the Innovation. Our events include speaker series, DIY science study breaks, our 25U25 gala honoring 25 undergraduate STEM research projects, and our yearly InnovTrip to visit STEM companies in New York.

To share a bit about myself, I am a senior in the chemistry department pursuing a certificate in linguistics. I joined Innovation during my freshman year as part of the outreach component and helped plan various science events on campus prior to leading the organization itself. Innovation has been a big part of my Princeton experience and it has been really exciting to share science in different ways to the Princeton community. I hope that as you go through our website, you are inspired by the articles written by the members of our organization to share our love for science!

Letter from the Editor-in-Chief

Hello readers,

Welcome to our website! As Princeton’s premier STEM organization, Innovation aims to bridge the gap between science and society. We as an organization have two main divisions: outreach and editorial. On the outreach side, we have had a growing presence on campus, hosting everything from fun STEM-themed study breaks to science writing symposiums. On the editorial side, we run a team of writers and editors to produce high-quality articles on groundbreaking scientific discoveries at Princeton and beyond. With an emphasis on accessibility, we aim to disentangle science communication from the usual jargon and specialized language of the primary literature. Although Innovation began as a journal that reported on research conducted by Princeton faculty, we have since expanded to research around the world—science is global and collaborative endeavor, after all.

As the Editor-in-Chief, I oversee all editorial processes and content production. I myself am a junior in the molecular biology department pursuing minors in quantitative and computational biology, global health and health policy, and computer science. I joined Innovation as a writer in the health section, for which I later became an editor. Having been with Innovation for my entire college career, I’ve seen the organization grow and evolve, expanding our outreach and presence on campus to celebrate and foster a love for scientific discovery. We hope you share this passion with us, and learn something new as you browse our site!
