Northeastern faculty and administrators visited Cuba last week, with members of Congress, to expand upon the university’s academic and research partnerships there, which are paving the way for myriad research opportunities in areas such as coastal sustainability, tropical diseases, and the social sciences. This story is the fourth in our five-part series covering the visit.
Rechargeable zinc-air batteries are going mainstream, but other metal-air chemistries will have to wait awhile.
Alexander R. Ivanov, an associate research professor in the College of Science and the Barnett Institute, with assistance of collaborators Dr. Shashi Murthy, of Northeastern’s Chemical Engineering Department, and David Frank, of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, was recently awarded a $1.5 million-dollar grant from the National Institutes of Health and the National Institute of General Medical Sciences.
The Northeastern University Student Affiliates of the American Chemical Society has been recognized for its activities and dedication to making chemistry more accessible.
After having taught hundreds of undergraduate, master’s and PhD students for 42 years, chemistry professor Paul Vouros is retiring.
Bilyana Koleva, a Chemistry 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.
The Northeastern chapter of ACS has earned an Outstanding Award from ACS Headquarters.
Assistant professor Leila Deravi takes an interdisciplinary approach to investigating the proteins that drive complex biological systems and building materials in the lab that replicate those systems. Among her research projects are optical displays inspired by squids and a face cream that strengthens skin proteins to reduce wrinkles.
Bio-inspired materials chemistry is a fascinating field that focuses on understanding natural biological systems and mimicking their properties in synthetic materials. An NSF grant will allow new Northeastern University professor to continue her research on cephalopods.
Associate Professor Michael Pollastri spent a decade in the pharmaceutical industry before coming to Northeastern University to focus on finding cures for neglected tropical diseases. The NIH grant will help him continue his work in drug discovery for what’s commonly known as sleeping sickness.
