Thirty students took part in NU-CD4. The course focused on the drug development process and gave the students the opportunity both to visit world-leading institutions in pharmaceutical research and manufacturing and conduct a research project focusing on identifying problems with existing drugs and developing novel remedies for those problems.
Professor Matthias Mann, Director in the Department of Proteomics and Signal Transduction at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry in Munich, Germany, was the recipient the Inaugural Barry L. Karger Medal in Bioanalysis.
Dr. William Hancock, the Bradstreet Chair in Chemistry and Chemical Biology and an expert in protein drugs, has been invited to serve as a consultant as a consultant to the Advisory Committee for Pharmaceutical Science and Clinical Pharmacology in the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
by Emily Ashbolt, Biomedical Physics, 2017 For the past decade, Northeastern University Chemistry and Chemical Biology professor Penny Beuning has focused her research on cellular responses to DNA damage, specifically a family of DNA polymerases that deal with copying the damaged DNA. Her tireless work in this area of chemistry has earned her the Chemical Research […]
New research from the Center for Drug Discovery at Northeastern presents a series of molecules that can be controllably deactivated, thereby reducing the side effects of potentially valuable drugs.
Chemistry and chemical biology professor John R. Engen uses a novel technique to analyze large, complex biopharmaceutical drugs, which could have major implications for healthcare and its associated costs.
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.
The secrecy model that dominates drug discovery doesn’t work for neglected tropical diseases. Associate Professor Michael Pollastri hopes to shift that paradigm with a new platform for secure data-sharing.
With time, the amino acid known as asparagine will eventually degrade.
This year marks the 40th anniversary of the founding of Northeastern’s Barnett Institute of Chemical and Biological Analysis.
