“One of the overall main goals for our group is to raise awareness,” said pharmacy student and organization founder Jennifer Shoskes. “One of the main things about rare diseases is that people don’t know about them – and it’s not just about the disease, but to shed light on what patients and their caregivers go through.”
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.
Through a new project funded by the NIH, Assistant Professor Rebecca Shansky and University of Calgary colleague Dr. Matthew Hill will be studying the neural mechanisms that underlie sex differences in the way the brain responds to stress.
Northeastern is the first institution in the Western Hemisphere to be selected as a “Center of Excellence” charged with educating regulators from 21 countries about the structure, function, and production of biotherapeutics—a class of drugs developed using living cells rather than from chemical synthesis.
Northeastern University, in collaboration with the Barnett Institute of Chemical and Biological Analysis is very excited to host the 2017 Global CESI-MS Symposium at the end of this week. On October 5-6, Associate Professor Alexander Ivanov will take the lead in hosting scientists from around the world as they present the latest and greatest in CESI-MS (Capillary Electrophoresis integrated with Electrospray Ionization-Mass Spectrometry).
Northeastern Professor and Director of the Core Mass Spectrometry Facility at the Barnett Institute Dr. Adam Hall is the Associate Director of the Center for Advanced Research and Forensic Science, a virtual center to innovate new research in the field of forensics. Northeastern’s involvement in this national project will be the start not only to many new research projects in areas like drug analysis and DNA repair, but also as part of an important collaboration, whose results can impact our society and the ability to efficiently and accurately solve crimes.
This October, Northeastern University’s Department of Mathematics will be hosting the bi-annual AGNES (Algebraic Geometry Northeastern Series) Conference, the largest conference in the U.S. for graduate students in algebraic geometry.
A new MRI brain imaging technique developed by Northeastern researcher Srinivas Sridhar will use magnetic nanoparticles to create the first atlas of blood volume in the human brain. The results will be used to better identify and address neurological diseases, such as Alzheimer’s and drug addiction.
Northeastern Huskies took to the tide pools on Sunday, Sept. 10, for the Nahant Coastal Bioblitz, an annual public survey of marine life on the beaches surrounding the Northeastern University Marine Science Center (MSC) in Nahant, MA.
