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.
