A few years ago, biologists Slava Epstein and Yoshiteru Aoi fantasized about a device that would work like a highway lane closure to isolate pure bacterial samples from the environment. They teamed with assistant professor of chemical engineering Ed Goluch to make this a reality.
Biology student Lena King was captivated the first time she saw an open bee hive. On co-op at a Boston-based beekeeping company, she’s observing the world of the queen bee and researching ways to help honeybees survive.
Students and faculty across many disciplines presented their most recent scholarly research, innovative thinking, and entrepreneurial ventures on Thursday at RISE:2014, Northeastern’s Research, Innovation and Scholarship Expo.
Three Northeastern University students—Theo Bowe, S’16, Tushar Swamy, E’15, and Greg Allan, E’16—have been selected to receive the prestigious Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship.
University Distinguished Professor of Biology Kim Lewis is exploring alternative approaches to curing chronic Lyme disease using his expertise in bacterial cell persistence.
Biology and physics professor Dagmar Sternad received the 50th annual Robert D. Klein University Lecturer Award on Tuesday and discussed her interdisciplinary research on how the brain controls the human body.
Nearly two-dozen students shared their co-op experiences with their peers at the College of Science Spring Co-op Expo on Friday in the Raytheon Amphitheater.
When the going gets tough in the microscopic world of bacteria, one of the best bets is to form a biofilm, an immobile colony of cells that offers protection against harsh conditions.
University Distinguished Professor of Biology Kim Lewis and his team have published a study that presents a novel approach to treat and eliminate MRSA.
Three Northeastern spinoff companies were highlighted in a recent report by The Science Coalition as examples of how federally funded university research and the companies created from that work can boost the U.S. economy.
