A new MRI brain imaging technique developed by Northeastern researcher Srinivas Sridhar will use magnetic nanoparticles to create the first atlas of blood volume in the human brain. The results will be used to better identify and address neurological diseases, such as Alzheimer’s and drug addiction.
Tanvi Wamorkar, Physics 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.
On Monday, hundreds of people descended on Centennial Common to view the first total solar eclipse to traverse the continental U.S. in nearly 100 years. The grounds hummed with energy as people of all ages—students, faculty, staff, and community members—shared in the communal experience.
Stop by the solar eclipse viewing event today from 1:30 to 4 p.m. on Centennial Common. About 100 vision cards will be distributed at the event for attendees to use and share. A limited number of eclipse glasses will also be distributed first-come-first-serve at the Snell Library info desk beginning at noon.
In a paper published in Nature Physics, Northeastern University Department of Physics Arts and Sciences Distinguished Professor Alain Karma, in collaboration with his postdoctoral research associate Chih-Hung Chen and Professor Eran Bouchbinder of the Weizmann Institute of Science’s Chemical Physics Department, discovered the mechanism that causes cracks to behave strangely when they spread very rapidly in brittle materials.
Layering 2-D crystals is a little like building a club sandwich, says Northeastern physicist Swastik Kar. But a new discovery allows researchers to rearrange the ingredients, producing new properties and opening up a world of possibilities for new materials.
Physics Professor Darien Wood recently participated in a panel discussion at Fermilab examining the impact of hadron colliders.
Assistant Professor of Physics Paul Whitford sits down with the College of Science Graduate Program staff to talk about his research at Northeastern University.
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.
Christopher Lane, a Physics 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.
