Travis DeLano is a University Scholar with a near-perfect GPA and a passion for chemistry. Here, he reflects on his past five years at Northeastern and looks ahead to the future.
A panel of stakeholders, including U.S. congressmen and university researchers, discussed the threats facing coastal communities and the best practices for keeping them secure.
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.
Northeastern research professor Daniel Distel and his colleagues have discovered a dark slithering creature four feet long that dwells in the foul mud of a remote lagoon in the Philippines. They say studying the giant shipworm could add to our understanding of how bacteria cause infections and, in turn, how we might adapt to tolerate—and even benefit from—them.
Four students were given the College of Science Dean’s Awards for Graduate Student Excellence.
