Now in its second year, the program runs concurrent with the Summer 1 half-semester and enables rising sophomores to earn up to eight course credits in just six to eight weeks. Registration is now open.
New faculty member Ameet Pinto, assistant professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, is working to answer that question. Specifically, his research focuses on the role of microbial organisms in drinking water and how they continue to survive today’s exhaustive water treatment processes.
The gap in lifespan between the rich and the poor has grown rapidly in recent years, with the richest Americans gaining three years since 2000 but the poorest gaining none. […]
As the Zika virus continues its inexorable spread, a panel of faculty members discussed how they—and by extension we—can be part of the global solution.
The breadth and depth of Northeastern’s research and entrepreneurial spirit was on full display Thursday at RISE:2016, the university’s Research, Innovation, and Scholarship Expo. Industry leaders judged some 400 projects, which detailed the work of more than 900 Northeastern students and faculty. The judges submitted their ratings and the top award winners were recognized at an afternoon reception in East Village.
“An arm for a leg.” No, the line is not part of a bargaining exchange. It’s the catchy title of Thomas Reilly’s research poster at RISE:2016. Reilly, BHS’16, is devoted to […]
“I study termites,” says Erin Cole, a fourth-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Biology. “I’m not here to tell you how to kill them.” No, she’s here at RISE:2016 to […]
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.
