Congratulations to Dr. Brian S. Fulton on the publication of his new book, Drug Discovery for the Treatment of Addiction: Medicinal Chemistry Strategies! The book will be available through Amazon and other book retailers on September 15, 2014.
The department would like to thank Carole Sharpazian (LA’66, MS’72) for her continued support of our undergraduate students! Her tireless contributions to the co-op program has yielded amazing results, with former scholars continuing on to medical, dental and veterinary schools.
Eugene S. Smotkin will present a Plenary Lecture at the Operando V Conference in Deauville, France, May 17 – 21. This is the 5th International Conference on Operando Spectroscopy. Professor Smotkin is known for being the first to obtain FTIR and X-ray absorption spectroscopy of electrochemical devices under normal operating conditions. Information is available at operando5.org Faculty at Northeastern are encouraged to attend.
College and high school students learning together? The thought of this intellectual cross-pollination is intriguing and the results are even more interesting. According to Kristian Teichert, a second-year biochemistry student here at Northeastern, this might be the future of education.
In December, Northeastern University’s biochemistry program became one of the first four in the nation to be accredited through the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB) – indicating that it meets or exceeds professional standards, giving students an advantage with prospective employers and graduate schools.
