Radical Approaches to Science and Technology that Improve Life for All People
Advances in science and technology are opening amazing possibilities for humans to flourish. From large-scale telescopes to gene editors and other new tools — generating data in ways never before possible — scientists are asking new questions, developing new perspectives and collaborating to solve complex problems.
Mitigating the effects of climate change, tackling the spread of infectious diseases, helping children learn — many urgent challenges are facing humanity. Making progress depends on patient, collaborative work that connects fundamental biology, chemistry and physics to engineering, computer science and data science. Carnegie Mellon University faculty are among the leaders of this new brilliant age of discovery and are educating a new generation of scientists.
