Alice Bonner, an associate professor of nursing at Northeastern and a national leader in Alzheimer’s disease care research, will lead the university’s efforts as part of an initiative aimed at providing more support services to people with Alzheimer’s and their families and raising awareness about the importance of early detection.
A new study using sociometers—devices that track individuals’ interactions with one another—suggests that context plays a large role in whether or not women talk more than men.
With support from the National Science Foundation, assistant professor Marilyn Minus will apply her research into designing materials stronger than Kevlar to create better synthetic collagen fibers and flame-retardant coatings.
Northeastern post-doctoral researcher Brian Keegan explains the science, the debate, and the implications of a recent Facebook study on the spread of emotion through the social network in a guest blog post on iNSolution.
When Northeastern assistant professor Loretta Fernandez was a kid, she “wanted to be Jacques Cousteau” (her words, her emphasis). She wanted to live on The Calypso, the boat from which […]
A few years ago, biologists Slava Epstein and Yoshiteru Aoi fantasized about a device that would work like a highway lane closure to isolate pure bacterial samples from the environment. They teamed with assistant professor of chemical engineering Ed Goluch to make their dream a reality.
As some of you die-hard readers might have noticed, iNSolution has gotten a face lift. Not only has the grid-homepage gone the way of the dodo, but there are some […]
Assistant professor Loretta Fernandez has developed a straightforward method for determining the concentration of contaminants likely to end up in the tissues of organisms living in polluted waterways.
Last week, Northeastern researchers were joined by Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs Stephen W. Director to converse with audience members at the Boston Museum of Science from a unique vantage point: the bottom of the ocean at the Aquarius Reef Base off Florida’s coast.
When animals must balance the fear of being eaten with their own need to feed, their decisions affect the whole ecosystem. New research from Northeastern professor Geoff Trussell, who directs Northeastern’s Marine Science Center, suggests this effect is even more pronounced under future climate change scenarios.
Our latest installment in the Antarctic co-op series from student Eileen Sheehan is a video of her and her Northeastern classmate Urjeet Khanwalkar feeding the red-blooded rock-cod N. coriiceps at Palmer […]
Last week I had perhaps the best interview of my time here at Northeastern (it’s a toss up between this and the time I walked out with a bottle of homemade […]
