From studying the physics of a heartbeat to designing new cardiac disease detection methods, these five researchers have the heart on the brain.
The Center for the Advancement of Science in Space has selected Northeastern spinoff company Quad Technologies as one of eight startups through the MassChallenge Startup Accelerator to receive funding that will leverage their research on the International Space Station U.S. National Laboratory.
Quad Technologies, a biotechnology company founded at Northeastern, is a finalist in the 2013 MassChallenge, an annual global startup competition with more than $1 million in accelerator grant funding up for grabs.
A record number of Northeastern alumni have been selected as global finalists in the MassChallenge 2013 Accelerator Program.
PhD graduate Brian Plouffe drew from the respective expertise of chemical engineering professors Shashi Murthy and Laura Lewis to design a miniature device that detects late-stage cancer.
Shashi Murthy will lead research into regenerative-medicine technology
Northeastern chemical engineering professor Shashi Murthy developed a test that can assess cardiovascular health from just a drop of blood.
