by Emily Ashbolt, Biomedical Physics, 2017 For the past decade, Northeastern University Chemistry and Chemical Biology professor Penny Beuning has focused her research on cellular responses to DNA damage, specifically a family of DNA polymerases that deal with copying the damaged DNA. Her tireless work in this area of chemistry has earned her the Chemical Research […]
The 2015 “Huntington 100″ list has been announced.
In a recent op-ed in The New York Times, psychology professor Lisa Feldman Barrett explains “affective realism.”
It is widely known that rising levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide are making the oceans more acidic, but how much have the oceans changed since the Industrial Revolution, and what impacts are these changes having on creatures inhabiting the ocean? Associate Professor Justin Ries is looking to rock-forming ‘coralline’ algae to answer these questions.
The Marine Science Center’s outreach program offers a way for students to take what they’re learning in the classroom and see it firsthand.
Chemistry major Shores Salter, who was recognized Thursday night at the Student Life Awards ceremony, reflects on the unbreakable bond he’s formed with Roseann Sdoia, a Boston Marathon bombing victim whose life he helped to save.
Noah Wilson-Rich and co-op student Kelly Allin, whom we first met last spring in an article in Northeastern Magazine, are celebrating publishing their book, “The Bee: A Natural History.”
Northeastern University researchers have extensively profiled the proteins of rare cells in blood, a feat that was previously impossible. By successfully isolating and characterizing rare cells that make up just 0.001 percent or less of the total cells present in blood, faculty members have built a foundation for proteomics-based personalized medicine.
Northeastern University physicist Prof. Don Heiman and researchers from MIT, Stanford, and Penn State have developed a material that could possibly lead to greener electronics. Their research was recently published in the journal Nature Materials.
College of Science student Margaret DiGiorno has received an Honorable Mention, with a stipend of $350, in the 2015 competition for the Udall Scholarship.
