  • A new device created by Berkeley engineers promises to make the 3D printing of biomaterials like organs and food a lot more viable. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    โ€œThe problem with 3D bioprinting is that it is a very slow process, so you canโ€™t print anything big because the biological materials will deteriorate by the time you finish,โ€ said Boris Rubinsky, professor of mechanical engineering and leader of the team that designed the device. โ€œOne of our innovations is that we freeze the material as it is being printed so that the biological material is preserved, and we can control the freezing rate.โ€ #BerkeleyResearch

  • Elwyn Berlekamp, game theorist and coding pioneer, dies at 78

    Berlekamp was a UC Berkeley mathematician and game theorist whose error-correcting codes allowed spacecrafts from Voyager to the Hubble Space Telescope send accurate, detailed and beautiful images back to Earth. ๐ŸŒŸ

    "Berlekamp came of age during the early years of the digital revolution and focused on a problem encountered whenever information is sent from one device to another: How do you account for lost bits of data? He developed algebraic algorithms for compressing images or other information in ways that allowed precise reconstruction, even if parts of the data stream were missing due to noise or faulty transmission."

  • "My parents are from Bulgaria and I'm the first child born in the United States. It's interesting because I'd be too Bulgarian for Americans and too American for people in Bulgaria. I grew up in a kind household, my parents embody a certain kind of tenderness but as a kid, I would feel isolated. I would be spoken over or someone wouldnโ€™t get my sense of humor or their reactions when they discovered Iโ€™m gay. I donโ€™t think anyone intentionally made me feel that way, but this helped me make it a point to make other people feel comfortable when theyโ€™re around me. You can be the smartest, most beautiful person in the room, but if you donโ€™t treat people the way they deserve to be treated then none of it matters. Iโ€™ve also been very comfortable with my sexuality since the 9th grade and it definitely comes with certain challenges. Iโ€™ve never had the option to choose how I came out to my family. My parents come from a place with a lot of stigmas, so they werenโ€™t the most welcoming initially. However, I do think weโ€™re capable of changing the beliefs of people around us even if itโ€™s not our responsibility. Iโ€™ve worked a lot of peopleโ€™s ideas of what makes me โ€” me, whether it's my sexuality, or not necessarily being religiously affiliated. Thereโ€™s just so much power to the individual."

    In 1970, when Chancellor Carol Christ joined UC Berkeley's English department as an assistant professor, only 3% of the faculty on campus were women. โ€œI always felt like a pioneer, in part, because Iโ€™m of the generation of the feminist revolution,โ€ says Christ. ๐ŸŒŸ

    Key campus priorities include housing, energy efficiency, accessibility, mobility, seismic remediation, and deferred maintenance. We are seeking community feedback on these plans through surveys and town hall meetings. Please share! ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ผ

  • Berkeley historian, Thomas Laqueur, says the loss to the world is difficult to comprehend. ๐Ÿ˜ข

    โ€œItโ€™s been a sweeping away of this site,โ€ Laqueur says. โ€œIn some ways itโ€™s like the burning of the Library of Alexandria (in 48 BC). There isnโ€™t the same kind of archive, but itโ€™s of that level of importance in terms of historical destruction. What other building has the same meaning around the world? Maybe the Great Wall of China. Maybe the Acropolis in Athens."

There is nothing to inhibit us from building that now.โ€ โ€” geography professor Jeff Chambers #BerkeleyResearch ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ“ฒ
