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.
When Mark Naniong, S’14, began his co-op at the Boston-based Belfer Institute for Applied Cancer Sciences at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute last spring, becoming a scientist wasn’t on his radar. But his experiential learning opportunity at the world-renowned treatment and research facility gave him a rare opportunity to conduct cutting edge research that could have major implications for the general public—an impact that this fifth-year chemistry major hopes to cultivate in a future career in patent law. – See more at: http://www.northeastern.edu/news/2014/01/naniong/#sthash.Va4j7fzU.dpuf
