Chuck Hillman practices what he preaches, applying his research findings to his personal life. When he’s not studying the relationship between physical activity and cognitive health, he’s biking, playing ice hockey, or lifting weights in his home gym.
University Distinguished Professor of Psychology Lisa Feldman Barrett was recently added to the Society for Personality and Social Psychology’s “Wall of Fame.”
Raina Levin isn’t sure where her education will lead her, but she knows her natural curiosity and Northeastern’s ecosystem of exploration—rooted in co-op—will guide her in the right direction.
For ecological forecasters like Northeastern’s Brian Helmuth, mussels act as a barometer of climate change. That’s why Helmuth created “robomussels”—tiny robots that look like mussels but are outfitted with sensors to track temperature conditions.
Associate Professor Michael Pollastri spent a decade in the pharmaceutical industry before coming to Northeastern University to focus on finding cures for neglected tropical diseases. The NIH grant will help him continue his work in drug discovery for what’s commonly known as sleeping sickness.
Physics professor Srinivas Sridhar has received grants from the National Institutes of Health, American Lung Foundation, and Department of Defense totaling $1.13 million.
Rui Hu is an exchange student from Peking University in Beijing who has spent six months in Professor Meni Wanunu’s lab at Northeastern University. Here she talks about her experiences as a graduate student researcher, working in Professor Wanunu’s lab, and living in Boston.
Salt marshes play a key role reducing the effects of urbanization and climate change. These marshes absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and the microbes in the marsh break the carbon down. That’s why researchers, like Northeastern University’s Jennifer Bowen, are working to find out how these vital ecosystems tick.
Congratulations to the Northeastern University Student Affiliates of the American Chemical Society for earning the title of Outstanding Student Chapter and Green Chemistry Award from the ACS!
It might sound unusual that a researcher mainly focused on population genetics and evolution in marine systems would be assisting with a study on trees in Canada, but there are more similarities than you think.
