A new study finds the quantum nature of protons could be behind one of the body’s most important processes.
Northeastern professor Srinivas Sridhar, who has led pioneering research and education initiatives in the field of nanomedicine, has received the 2016 Biomedical Engineering Society Diversity Award. “This award recognizes the work I’ve been doing for the past 10 years, a path motivated by spreading knowledge and breaking down barriers to access of knowledge,” he said.
At the intersection of molecular biology and physics lies the potential for greater understanding of one of the most fundamental processes in the cell: the production of proteins by the ribosome.
Physics professor Srinivas Sridhar has received grants from the National Institutes of Health, American Lung Foundation, and Department of Defense totaling $1.13 million.
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.
The Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3) awarded the 2016 John Hunt Medal to Arts & Sciences Distinguished Professor Alain Karma.
Instead of protons “hopping” over barriers from point A to B, new research by professor Paul Champion and his team reveals for the first time that protons actually tunnel through these barriers. This discovery upends a centuries-old belief about how protons behave.
Physics professor Don Heiman authored a paper in Nature that describes his work making topological insulators more feasible for use in everything from iPhones to quantum computing.
Bridget Salna, 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.
Northeastern Professor Tomasz Taylor is a master of theoretical elementary particle physics, and his successful career reflects that.
