The Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) has awarded a Northeastern University’s College of Science faculty members $1 million to create programming focused on diversity and inclusion initiatives for the natural science fields in higher education.
Northeastern’s Biology Club’s wildly successful event, NU Talk 2017, won Best Program at the 2017 Student Life Awards.
Hannah Tam and Benjamin Moran have seized myriad opportunities to engage in undergraduate research at Northeastern, both on campus and on co-op. Now they share the distinction of receiving the prestigious Goldwater Scholarship.
We are very excited to share these and congratulate all of the winners.
The groups went to the Eastern New England Biological Conference and the Eastern Branch Conference of the Entomological Society of America meeting.
Northeastern researchers touched on that question this week in a series of talks that examined renewing tissue function, improving and restoring motor control, and the remarkable memory power of superagers.
Four students were given the College of Science Dean’s Awards for Graduate Student Excellence.
Singhal attended the wrong orientation as an incoming freshman. No big deal. It just sparked her curiosity, inspired her to switch majors, and led to transformative research and co-op experiences. Next month, she’ll share the highlights of her journey when she delivers the student commencement address on May 5—the same day she turns 23.
At Northeastern, Sarah Sherman has developed a passion for cancer research through hands-on training on co-op. For her Fulbright project, she plans to evaluate whether recent improvements to Botswana’s pathology labs have led to more timely diagnoses.
Biology professor Slava Epstein is the lead character in the short documentary “The History of Resistance,” in which he talks about his contributions to the search for beneficial microorganisms in places as close to home as his own backyard and, perhaps one day, as remote as the planet Mars.
