Commercial space flight. Empowering foster children. Human emotion and social resilience. These were among the many topics and initiatives speakers explored Saturday at TEDxNortheasternU, attended by 100 Northeastern students and designed to share bold ideas in the community.
If you grew up in the Northeast you know that there are good days for making snowballs and there are bad days for making snowballs.
When associate professor of physics Latika Menon peered under the electron microscope last fall, she didn’t discover art imitating nature, rather she found nature imitating art.
Assistant professor of physics Paul Whitford was recently awarded a CAREER Award by the NSF.
In a paper published last week in the journal Nature Chemistry, physics professor Mark Williams and his team present new research that elucidates a long-held paradox about a protein called APOBEC3G that could transform HIV drug discovery.
In a recently released paper Alessandro Vespignani and his collaborators provide hard numbers regarding accidental escape of a lethal virus. And they aren’t good.
Professor Joseph Incandela, Yzurdiaga Professor of Experimental Science at University of California Santa Barbara, was the 2013 Physics Nobel Prize Colloquium lecturer.
A collaborative team led by a Northeastern University professor may have altered the way we look at drug development for HIV by uncovering some unusual properties of a human protein called APOBEC3G (A3G).
Congratulations to physics major Trithep Devakul, who was recently named a recipient of a 2013/14 Provost Undergraduate Research Award.
A research team led by Meni Wanunu, assistant professor of physics and chemistry and chemical biology, has found that nanopores made of hafnium oxide slow the passage of DNA and are very stable.
