Rui Hu is an exchange student from Peking University in Beijing who has spent six months in Professor Meni Wanunu’s lab at Northeastern University. Here she talks about her experiences as a graduate student researcher, working in Professor Wanunu’s lab, and living in Boston.
Salt marshes play a key role reducing the effects of urbanization and climate change. These marshes absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and the microbes in the marsh break the carbon down. That’s why researchers, like Northeastern University’s Jennifer Bowen, are working to find out how these vital ecosystems tick.
Congratulations to the Northeastern University Student Affiliates of the American Chemical Society for earning the title of Outstanding Student Chapter and Green Chemistry Award from the ACS!
It might sound unusual that a researcher mainly focused on population genetics and evolution in marine systems would be assisting with a study on trees in Canada, but there are more similarities than you think.
Our brains are continually developing – led by a combination of neurological changes and environmental factors – well into adolescence. According to Heather Brenhouse, assistant professor of psychology at Northeastern, there’s a lot of mystery surrounding why the brain evolves the way it does and what factors cause changes in development.
Kenneth Henderson can point to the moment when his career spun in an exciting new direction: a five-month industry placement in London prior to his senior year of college. Here, the new College of Science dean discusses the importance of experiential education and his vision for the college.
Dana Klug, 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.
In a recently funded project involving Boston Children’s Hospital and Northeastern University, chemistry Professors John R. Engen and Roxana Iacob have teamed up with Prof. Timothy A. Springer—a renowned immunologist and structural biologist from Harvard Medical School (HMS) and Boston Children’s Hospital—to uncover the inner-workings of an extremely complex class of proteins.
The Northeastern chapter of the Science Club For Girls mentors young women in science, technology, math and engineering fields, giving the younger set the nickname the “STEMinistas.”
Assistant Professor Leila Deravi, a member of the chemistry faculty, has secured a $232,343 grant over 18 months from the U.S. Army Research Office.
