Congratulations to Physics Professor Mark Williams and his postdoc Mike Morse for their paper published in Nature Communications on the unique capabilities of the human protein that inhibits HIV-1.
Northeastern University Marine Science Center postdoctoral researcher Jake Daane, under the mentorship of Professor Bill Detrich, has just received a fellowship from the American Heart Association to study the genetic underpinnings of the rare blood and cardiovascular systems of these fishes.
James Monaghan, Assistant Professor in the Department of Biology, sits down with the College of Science Graduate Program staff to talk about his research at Northeastern University.
After eight years of work, a new paper by professor Jonathan Tilly, a reproductive and stem cell biologist, “puts the final nail in the dogma coffin,” toppling a long-held belief about female fertility and ovarian aging. His findings confirm that female mammals make new eggs during adult life, that ovarian stem cells are critical to the process, and that the newly formed eggs contribute directly to maintenance of ovarian function and to natural fertility.
Biology professor Slava Epstein, who created the iChip, recently delivered a TEDx Talk in Bratislava.
Your brain knows how to throw a party. And when to kick everyone out. In this installment of Why is That?, biology professor Fred Davis explains the science of sleep.
This summer, a group of Northeastern students explored Chile’s Atacama Desert on scales large and small—from photographing the picturesque landscapes, to searching for tiny bacteria to aid the discovery of new antibiotics—as part of a pioneering Dialogue of Civilizations program.
Jennifer Greenwich, Biology PhD candidate, sits down with the College of Science Graduate Program staff to talk about what it’s like to work and study at Northeastern University.
Meet Yaa Kyeremateng, a behavioral neuroscience major who speaks multiple languages, conducts research, is fascinated with the brain, and has modeled for the past year. Here, she discusses these aspects of her Northeastern experience and why “adaptability” is perhaps her strongest trait.
The Hannover Exchange Program has provided opportunities for international experiential learning for 30 years. Thanks to grant support from the German Academic Exchange Service, this long running program sends German Master’s students to Boston to work in Northeastern labs, as well as sends Northeastern undergraduate co-op students to work in labs at the Leibniz University of Hannover.
