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.
It has been a whirlwind 10 months for new Northeastern University professor Carla Mattos. She moved to Boston, set up a new lab in structural biology, and won a highly competitive grant for a piece of new equipment that will expand research opportunities for the entire Northeastern community.
Seven years ago, physics professor Latika Mennon’s first graduate student said he wanted to “change the world.”
When someone is victimized, do you see yourself in them in some manner? It could be why you feel compassion toward them.

Ninety percent of global healthcare and medical research money is spent on diseases that affect only 10 percent of the population, according to Michael Pollastri, a professor of chemistry and chemical biology who spoke at the College of Science Colloquium last Friday.
Nearly half a million children in the U.S. take antidepressants. In 2007, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a warning for fluoxetine, one of the most highly prescribed psychiatric medications.
Fluoxetine was the first drug approved by the FDA for major depressive disorder (MDD) in children and adolescents, and to this date, it remains one of only two selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) registered for treatment of MDD in children and adolescents, despite reports that indicate this class of drugs is associated with side effects, such as agitation, hostility and aggression.
Oyster reefs and sandy beaches have historically bordered many picturesque coastlines. But in an effort to prevent erosion, coastal developers are increasingly replacing these living shorelines with rocks and seawalls.
In the Pacific Northwest, beach grass communities often create sand dunes that mitigate coastal erosion and flooding risks stemming from rising sea levels caused by climate change.
