At the intersection of molecular biology and physics lies the potential for greater understanding of one of the most fundamental processes in the cell: the production of proteins by the ribosome.
Physics professor Srinivas Sridhar has received grants from the National Institutes of Health, American Lung Foundation, and Department of Defense totaling $1.13 million.
Rui Hu is an exchange student from Peking University in Beijing who has spent six months in Professor Meni Wanunu’s lab at Northeastern University. Here she talks about her experiences as a graduate student researcher, working in Professor Wanunu’s lab, and living in Boston.
Kenneth Henderson can point to the moment when his career spun in an exciting new direction: a five-month industry placement in London prior to his senior year of college. Here, the new College of Science dean discusses the importance of experiential education and his vision for the college.
The Northeastern chapter of the Science Club For Girls mentors young women in science, technology, math and engineering fields, giving the younger set the nickname the “STEMinistas.”
The Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3) awarded the 2016 John Hunt Medal to Arts & Sciences Distinguished Professor Alain Karma.
Instead of protons “hopping” over barriers from point A to B, new research by professor Paul Champion and his team reveals for the first time that protons actually tunnel through these barriers. This discovery upends a centuries-old belief about how protons behave.
Physics professor Don Heiman authored a paper in Nature that describes his work making topological insulators more feasible for use in everything from iPhones to quantum computing.
Bridget Salna, Physics 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.
Northeastern Professor Tomasz Taylor is a master of theoretical elementary particle physics, and his successful career reflects that.
