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.
Biology professor Slava Epstein is the lead character in the short documentary “The History of Resistance,” in which he talks about his contributions to the search for beneficial microorganisms in places as close to home as his own backyard and, perhaps one day, as remote as the planet Mars.
Several graduate students are recipients of the annual awards.
The moment Sarah Nelson stepped onto the Northeastern campus, she knew that the university spoke her language. A linguist with the U.S. Navy for six years, she was drawn to the university for its academic strength in her areas of interest, which are physics and geology, its co-op program, and its longtime commitment to supporting the nation’s veterans.
Psychology professor Derek Isaacowitz will be able to shift some of his research from a lab setting to volunteers’ homes using a $1M grant from Velux Stiftung.
Northeastern hosted some 250 area high school students last week for the Boston High School Marine Science Symposium. The experience, said the symposium coordinator, stays with the young participants “long after the event is over.”
Derek Isaacowitz, Professor of Psychology, sits down with the College of Science Graduate Program staff to talk about his research at Northeastern University.
Hua Zhao, an MS in Applied Mathematics candidate, sits down with the College of Science Graduate Program staff to talk about what it’s like to study at Northeastern University.
190 Massachusetts high school students participated in Biotech Futures, a college and career exploration event that exposes students to the educational opportunities and diverse fields of study in the life sciences at the college level through hands-on laboratory experiences and campus tours.
