“One of the overall main goals for our group is to raise awareness,” said pharmacy student and organization founder Jennifer Shoskes. “One of the main things about rare diseases is that people don’t know about them – and it’s not just about the disease, but to shed light on what patients and their caregivers go through.”
James Monaghan, Assistant Professor in the Department of Biology, sits down with the College of Science Graduate Program staff to talk about his research at Northeastern University.
After eight years of work, a new paper by professor Jonathan Tilly, a reproductive and stem cell biologist, “puts the final nail in the dogma coffin,” toppling a long-held belief about female fertility and ovarian aging. His findings confirm that female mammals make new eggs during adult life, that ovarian stem cells are critical to the process, and that the newly formed eggs contribute directly to maintenance of ovarian function and to natural fertility.
This summer, a group of Northeastern students explored Chile’s Atacama Desert on scales large and small—from photographing the picturesque landscapes, to searching for tiny bacteria to aid the discovery of new antibiotics—as part of a pioneering Dialogue of Civilizations program.
Jennifer Greenwich, Biology PhD candidate, sits down with the College of Science Graduate Program staff to talk about what it’s like to work and study at Northeastern University.
Meet Yaa Kyeremateng, a behavioral neuroscience major who speaks multiple languages, conducts research, is fascinated with the brain, and has modeled for the past year. Here, she discusses these aspects of her Northeastern experience and why “adaptability” is perhaps her strongest trait.
The Hannover Exchange Program has provided opportunities for international experiential learning for 30 years. Thanks to grant support from the German Academic Exchange Service, this long running program sends German Master’s students to Boston to work in Northeastern labs, as well as sends Northeastern undergraduate co-op students to work in labs at the Leibniz University of Hannover.
Lecturer of Biotechnology and Bioinformatics Dr. Stephen Hatfield sits down with the College of Science Graduate Program staff to talk about his research at Northeastern University.
The Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) has awarded a Northeastern University’s College of Science faculty members $1 million to create programming focused on diversity and inclusion initiatives for the natural science fields in higher education.
Northeastern’s Biology Club’s wildly successful event, NU Talk 2017, won Best Program at the 2017 Student Life Awards.
