This year marks the 40th anniversary of the founding of Northeastern’s Barnett Institute of Chemical and Biological Analysis.
Congratulations to the Northeastern University Biochemistry Club for receiving the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB) Undergraduate Affiliate Network Outstanding National Chapter Award.
Northeastern University’s Barnett Institute of Chemical and Biological Analysis formally announced a technology alliance partnership with Thermo Fisher Scientific, a multibillion-dollar analytical instrumentation and product company, based in San Jose, Calif., with corporate offices in Waltham, MA.
Lithium-ion battery experts, and Northeastern University faculty members, Sanjeev Mukerjee and K.M. Abraham weigh in on recent problems with the batteries on Boeing 787s.
Northeastern professors Dr. Geoffrey Davies and Dr. Elham Ghabbour worked side-by-side on humic substances isolation, cross comparison, structures, properties, and uses – research that has led to a recent $50,000 grant from the VK Rasmussen Foundation.
Do you think like a chemist? Do you sometimes discard information without even knowing it?
Chemistry professor Carla Mattos spends much of her time studying a protein known as RAS. It is important in cell proliferation, and until recently has been completely elusive as a drug target, she told News@Northeastern’s Angela Herring.
Northeastern University’s own Dr. Thomas R. Gilbert, an associate professor of chemistry and chemical biology, was recently elected to the American Chemical Society Board of Directors. He will serve as the director for District I, which includes New England, New York, and parts of Pennsylvania.
The forensics lab isn’t nearly as glamorous as television would have you think. Jacquelyn Horman would know. The chemistry major had watched her fair share of the police procedural dramas NCIS and CSI: Miami before landing a co-op job with the crime lab at the Mesa, Ariz., police department. The lab work — not glitzy but critical to investigations — strengthened her interest in the field, she said.
Northeastern University’s student chapter of the American Chemical Society has been designated as “outstanding,” the highest honor bestowed upon a university by the world’s largest scientific society.
