Graduate student Jaclene Forlano sought to find the perfect pacifier. Not just one with a stuffed animal hanging from it to entertain infants, but one that can help pre-term infants […]

Picture this: A sensor the size of two matchsticks side-by-side that can detect a bacterial infection in two minutes flat. It would quickly enable health-care providers to administer an antibiotic that targets the specific bug rather than a broad-spectrum drug that could be hit-or-miss. That describes the mind-boggling research project that Daniel Ostberg, E’20, displayed in Innovation Alley at RISE:2016.
Today’s wind turbines are gargantuan structures that require high wind speeds to generate large amounts of energy for consumers. One group of engineering students presenting at RISE:2016—and featured at the […]
The judging is underway at RISE:2016. The doors opened at 10 a.m., and presenters are talking with judges and visiting with expo attendees.
On Wednesday, a NASA team assembled Valkyrie, the 6-foot-2-inch, 275-pound humanoid robot on which an interdisciplinary team of Northeastern students and faculty will perform advanced research and development work.
Valkyrie—the 6-foot-2-inch, 275-pound humanoid robot on which an interdisciplinary team of Northeastern students and faculty will perform advanced research and development work—is up and walking.
In the 52nd annual Robert D. Klein Lecture on Tuesday, psychology professor Iris Berent argued that human language is a product of a specialized biological system, that we are are innately equipped with a language instinct.
Three Northeastern students have co-founded a hyperlocal photo-sharing platform that connects people who are in the same place at the same time, like a party or sporting event. Now, the Blurr team is headed to South by Southwest to pitch its startup to entrepreneurs and investors as finalists in a national student startup competition.
A group of Northeastern engineering and physical therapy students have spent months developing devices designed to help children with disabilities at an orphanage in Ecuador. On Sunday, 15 students and their professor traveled to the South American country to spend their spring break working with these children.
Time was, monitoring the behavior of whales meant boarding a boat and systematically scanning the ocean. Coverage extended only as far as the eye could see. But today, Northeastern researchers use advanced underwater acoustic sensing technology that covers 100,000 square kilometers to track—and listen to—marine mammals. What they heard at feeding time amazed them.
