Cyanobacteria, which are responsible for producing a quarter of the earth’s breathable oxygen, are nearly 3 billion years old, but they’ve yet to be well understood on a genetic level. Associate professor Jacqueline Piret aims to change that.
New research from associate professor Rebeca Rosengaus confirms ant larvae have retained their individual immune systems throughout evolution, which she said could help explain why social insects are geographically widespread and ecologically dominant.
Fourth-year marine biology major Nadia Aamoum worked on international co-op on Mahe Island in Seychelles, where she learned the basics of dive research and which she is now applying to her work in the Three Seas Program.
Researchers in Northeastern’s Interdisciplinary Affective Science Laboratory have created the highest-resolution image of the human brain stem in action. It could ultimately help scientists explore the grounds of human emotion like never before.
Baruch Barzel, a post-doctoral research associate in the Center for Complex Network Science, answers some of the most fundamental questions about complex networks. The answers surprised even him.
In 2004, Jon Tilly, professor and chair of the Department of Biology, overturned the paradigm that female mammals do not produce new egg cells after birth. His discovery has opened the floodgates for new clinical approaches to combat infertility and perhaps even stave off menopause.
Two new faculty based at the Marine Science Center are harvesting data from the ocean to understand how global change has impacted its ecosystems and will continue to do so in the future.
Research suggests that older adults maintain their happier outlook through different emotion regulation strategies. With a new grant from the National Institute on Aging, associate professor Derek Isaacowitz will examine how our multimedia choices play into that.
