Chemistry doctoral student Dana Klug makes possible drug options the way a chef makes a gourmet dish—adding an atom of hydrogen here, removing an atom of nitrogen there—to stop a deadly parasite in its tracks.
Research on spoken languages has shown that they rely on the human brain’s ability to unconsciously encode patterns in speech in the form of abstract rules. But do those same rules operate in American Sign Language?
A recent paper by Pran Nath, Distinguished Professor of Physics, was chosen as Paper of the Week on Physica Scripta, Journal of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.
Northeastern’s chemistry department was recently ranked in the top 10 in a review of career support services among American chemistry departments.
The prevailing view of research science is that professors and laboratory staff work on obscure challenges for which a lifetime might not be enough time to solve. Or that their projects might have limited application in the ‘real’ world. If that’s how you think, you haven’t met Dr. Barry Karger.
David Kimbro, a marine and environmental science professor at Northeastern University, has solved the mystery of why reefs in Florida inlets were experiencing large numbers of oyster loss. Drought and subsequent high salt levels in water led to a population spike in one of the oysters’ main predators: conchs.
When discussing one of the most contentious topics of the 21st century—climate change—finding the balance between fact and emotion is precarious, say Northeastern faculty.
