Northeastern researchers touched on that question this week in a series of talks that examined renewing tissue function, improving and restoring motor control, and the remarkable memory power of superagers.
Northeastern research professor Daniel Distel and his colleagues have discovered a dark slithering creature four feet long that dwells in the foul mud of a remote lagoon in the Philippines. They say studying the giant shipworm could add to our understanding of how bacteria cause infections and, in turn, how we might adapt to tolerate—and even benefit from—them.
Singhal attended the wrong orientation as an incoming freshman. No big deal. It just sparked her curiosity, inspired her to switch majors, and led to transformative research and co-op experiences. Next month, she’ll share the highlights of her journey when she delivers the student commencement address on May 5—the same day she turns 23.
Nathan Sorenson, an MS candidate in Biotechnology, sits down with the College of Science Graduate Program staff to talk about what it’s like to study at Northeastern University.
Brian Helmuth, Professor of Marine and Environmental Science, sits down with the College of Science Graduate Program staff to talk about his research at Northeastern University.
Gabriela Aisenberg says her interest in psychology came from her desire to help others.
At Northeastern, Sarah Sherman has developed a passion for cancer research through hands-on training on co-op. For her Fulbright project, she plans to evaluate whether recent improvements to Botswana’s pathology labs have led to more timely diagnoses.
Can disposable diapers help us understand a new technology that could reveal how the brain generates thoughts, feelings, behavior, and sensations? The answer is yes, according to neuroengineer Edward Boyden, who tonight will deliver the keynote address for Northeastern’s Brain Awareness Week.
The massive bleaching of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef is even worse than anticipated, according to new research released this month. We asked Northeastern’s Justin Ries, a marine geologist, about the significance of these findings and why the destruction has been so swift and severe.
Margaret “Maggie” Slein recently finished a collaboration with the Ocean Genome Legacy at Northeastern’s Marine Science Center in Nahant, embarking on an adventure that few students have the opportunity to take: conducting independent scientific research — in high school.
