Penny Beuning’s research is based on relationships. Proteins, DNA, RNA in a dance of scientific compatibility. A dance that affects life, the fight against disease and understanding how to create new chemical reactions. An associate professor in Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Northeastern’s College of Science, Beuning’s groundbreaking efforts were documented recently in a paper published in “Structure.” In it, she detailed how various proteins might act in different situations in the lab.
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.
Frustrating, enigmatic and enlightening. That’s how graduating senior Elise Miner describes her scientific research when striving to develop economically sustainable renewable energy sources.
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.
When Mark Naniong began his co-op at the Boston-based Belfer Institute for Applied Cancer Sciences at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute last spring, becoming a scientist wasn’t on his radar.
In one of the largest science-research-based crowdfunding campaigns to date, Northeastern University College of Science associate professor Michael Pollastri raised $25,031.
Justin Roberts, an undergraduate student in John Engen’s lab, has been awarded a 2013/14 Provost Undergraduate Research Award.
Congratulations to Kristian Teichert!
A research team led by Meni Wanunu, assistant professor of physics and chemistry and chemical biology, has found that nanopores made of hafnium oxide slow the passage of DNA and are very stable.
