Professor Mathias Mann, Director in the Department of Proteomics and Signal Transduction at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry in Munich, has been named as the inaugural recipient of the Barry L. Karger Medal in Bioanalytical Chemistry.
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.
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.
Elise Miner, an undergraduate senior chemistry major, has been selected to participate in the Northeastern (regional) Section of the American Chemical Society (NESACS) and the Northeastern Section of the Younger Chemists Committee (NSYCC) 2014 Exchange to Germany Program.
I was drawn to research on neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson’s. But by 1987, I switched to neuropsychiatric diseases, and that’s what I’ve been focused on ever since.
