On June 7th, Fermilab, the largest particle physics laboratory in the US, celebrated is 50th anniversary with a special symposium. As part of this symposium, Prof. Darien Wood from the Northeastern University Physics Department participated in a discussion panel examining the impact of hadron colliders. Wood is a veteran of three such particle colliders: the […]
Prof. Wanunu and a collaborator at LLNL (Prof Aleksandr Noy) were awarded a 3 year NSF/DMR-BSF award along with a collaborator in Israel. The project title is “Understanding transport in biomimetic carbon nanotube porin membranes for water treatment and osmotic energy harvesting”, and the US team will receive $510,000.
Sir Richard Roberts, Nobel laureate and Distinguished University Professor at Northeastern, loves bacteria. As he puts it, “I find humans too complicated.” There is however, an important connection between humans and bacteria, he said: we couldn’t survive without them. Roberts, a globally recognized leader in genomics and molecular biology, studies the mechanisms by which bacteria […]
Mohit Bhardwaj (Mechanical Engineering/Physics ’17) undergraduate was awarded the 2017 Senior Excellence Award in Research and Creative Endeavors from the NU Honors Program. Working under Professor Jose Martinez-Lorenzo, Mohit’s research focused on the detection of suicide bombers via the use of long-range radar imaging.
Congratulations to Alessandra Di Credico who received this year’s COE Outstanding Teacher of First Year Engineering Students Award. Awardees are chosen from departments who teach our first year students based on results submitted from College of Engineering Freshmen, who rate each of their instructors.
National security: The phrase resonates like a drumbeat these days. Just one example: In its 2017 Budget-in-Brief, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security lists among its priorities allocating $103.9 million for radiological and nuclear detection equipment “to keep U.S. ports of entry safe and secure by detecting and interdicting illicit radioactive or nuclear materials.” A […]
Professor Latika Menon will represent Menon Laboratories at the University Startups Conference and Demo Day.
RISE, the Research, Innovation and Scholarship Expo was held yesterday, Thursday, April 13 at the Cabot Center. Congratulations to Liam Timms who won the Graduate Innovator Award. Liam’s advisor is University Distinguished Professor of Physics Sri Sridhar.
Congratulations to Biomedical Physics Student Catharina Dekker (Biomedical Physics ’18) who received an award for her poster presentation, Novel method for detecting Her3 Resistance to Targeted Therapy at last Friday’s College of Science Co-op Expo.
The moment Sarah Nelson, S’17, stepped onto the Northeastern campus, she knew that the university spoke her language.
