It is possible that unmodified images might have a less deleterious effect on body image than retouched images.
Honors student Chirag Kulkarni discusses his experiences as an entrepreneur and attendance at Forbes’ inaugural Under 30 Summit in today’s “3Q’s” series.
Julia Ebert, an Honors student majoring in Behaviorial Neuroscience, was recently awarded a Marshall Scholarship. As a Marshall Scholar, Ebert plans to complete the MRes in biomedical engineering at Imperial College London, where she will examine the possibility of robotic intervention and control at the interface of the brain and the peripheral nervous system, an area… Read more »
Caitlin Morelli, SSH’ 16, was selected by President Aoun to be one of NU’s first Global Officers. Participants in this brand-new co-op will travel the world in search of new ways for students and the university to engage with the global community.
Hometown: Delhi, NY
Major: Chemistry with a minor in Biology
After Graduation: I will be working full time at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute after graduation. Specifically, I’ll work as a research technician in the lab of Dr. James Bradner within Harvard Medical School. The lab uses a plethora of different platforms for approaching cancer biology and potential cures, from bioinformatics, to small molecule synthesis and protein chemistry. Using the skills that I have developed in the protein chemistry lab of Prof. John Engen at Northeastern, I will be testing inhibition of proteins involved in chromatin remodeling and epigenetic regulation as they relate to eradication of cancer. I hope to hone my skills in biology during the year that I am in the lab, and then go off to graduate school. I have had a diverse background in chemistry, physics, and biology during my time at NU, and am currently looking for programs that merge these interests, such as bio-inspired materials. For instance, there is a lab at MIT that creates high efficiency “bio-batteries” using virus templated nano-structures that interests me. Additionally, I am looking for international programs that allow me to pursue part of my Ph.D. in the US and the other back in Japan. Long term, I am looking to perform cutting edge research with joint appointments both domestically and abroad.
