Co-op doesn’t just provide students with premier experiential learning opportunities. It also helps many find their life’s purpose, said several College of Science students who shared their stories at last week’s Spring Co-op Expo.
A new type of cellular mechanism discovered by Northeastern researchers triggers bacterial biofilm formation.
Virtual humans, relational robots, brain imaging devices, and mobile eye-tracking technologies were among the innovative research projects highlighted at a daylong conference at Northeastern that explored the intersection of emotion science and technology.
As part of the Women Who Inspire Speaker Series Tuesday night, presidents and CEOs of renewable energy, climate change, and sustainability companies discussed their careers and urged students and industry professionals to seize opportunities in rapidly-growing green industries.
Northeastern is part of an international consortium working to make all data from the field of high-energy particle physics available to the public.
Gamers from Northeastern University and other area colleges convened at Snell Library’s Digital Media Commons this weekend for a 48-hour game-developing frenzy as part of the international event.
Fifth-year chemistry major Mark Naniong’s research while on co-op at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute made it to the pages of a prestigious academic journal—and inspired him to pursue a career linked to innovation in science.
Sir Richard Roberts, a Nobel laureate and globally recognized leader in genomics and molecular biology, has joined the university as a Distinguished University Professor in the College of Science.
Professor Hanchen Huang’s new theory of nanorod crystal growth could be a game-changer for nanoscale research and have big implications for a range of commercial products, from glue to popular handheld devices.
People tend to adopt risky behaviors after getting vaccinated against transmissible diseases, but how does this behavior affect the spread of infections? In new research, Northeastern faculty are taking a closer look.
Crowdsourced social media platforms such as Facebook and Yelp are increasingly being infiltrated by fake accounts and reviews that cloud the legitimacy of some online rating systems. Assistant professor Christo Wilson dubbed this phenomenon “crowdturfing,” and he’s determined to make these systems more secure.
Northeastern associate professor of electrical and computer engineering Nian Sun has developed a method for power efficiently tuning the inductors of inductor – capacitor tank circuits widely used in cell phones and other radio-frequency devices allowing a much large tunable frequency range, a feat that has eluded scientists for decades.
