Zombies versus Their Brain Snatchers. Sounds like the title of a Friday night made-for-TV movie. Or maybe a choose your own adventure book. Instead, this is the title of Parvathy Prasad’s poster on display in Curry Student Center during the Inquiries in Biology Poster Symposium.
The electrical outputs of the brain contain massive amounts of information that could be a powerful resource if we could fully tap into it.
Mathew Chamberlain, a fifth year senior, chose to attend Northeastern University because of its co-op program, and he’s participated in two exciting opportunities because of it.
The science of complex systems was born in the mid-20th century, but it has only recently begun to mature into a research field with real-world relevance.
All around and inside us, an elaborate dance of molecular vibrations is constantly taking place.
More than a decade ago, mathematics professor Valerio Toledano Laredo was puzzling over the relationship between the symmetries of macroscopic and microscopic systems when he discovered a brand new set of differential equations.
The forensics lab isn’t nearly as glamorous as television would have you think. Jacquelyn Horman would know. The chemistry major had watched her fair share of the police procedural dramas NCIS and CSI: Miami before landing a co-op job with the crime lab at the Mesa, Ariz., police department.

Northeastern University’s student chapter of the American Chemical Society has been designated as “outstanding,” the highest honor bestowed upon a university by the world’s largest scientific society.
Dr. James Monaghan, an assistant professor of regeneration biology at Northeastern University, has been studying the Mexican axolotl salamander’s amazing regenerative properties to discover the cellular and genetic basis of tissue regeneration — findings that could have a huge impact on regenerative medicine.
