Northeastern’s Hanchen Huang and colleagues, experts in nanotechnology, have developed a glue that binds metal to metal to glass to you-name-it, sets at room temperature, and requires little pressure to seal.
Psychology professor Peter J. Bex and colleagues have reached a new understanding of why our peripheral vision is poor. The discovery could lead to treatments for eye diseases such as age-related macular degeneration.
Professors Srinivas Sridhar and Thomas Webster launched the Nanomedicine Academy of Minority Serving Institutions to bring a diverse workforce into this emerging field and cutting-edge medical advances into the world.
We asked Northeastern University professors across a variety of disciplines to put on their holiday fun caps and think about how their research might be used to improve Santa’s sleigh. Here’s what they came up with.
Groundbreaking scientific research published earlier this year by Northeastern researchers and their colleagues topped the list of the 100 scientific articles receiving the most media buzz and online attention in 2015, according to the London-based company Altmetric.
Over the past century, the discipline of physics has expanded exponentially, crossing boundaries into areas as diverse as biology and engineering. Network scientists in the lab of Albert-László Barabási analyzed how this growth drives technological breakthroughs that improve our lives.
The achievements of Northeastern faculty, students, and staff garner numerous awards, grants, and accolades throughout the year in fields from engineering and business to physics and literature. Here, we share some of the recent honors.
Associate professor Rachel Jones was on the front lines fighting the AIDS epidemic when it first struck. Her new study, “Love, Sex, & Choices,” continues that work, using a soap opera video series to reduce HIV risk among urban African American women.
Northeastern and MIT are the only universities in the country chosen by NASA to perform advanced research and development work on humanoid robots—robots that could play a role in NASA’s plan to send astronauts to Mars.
A research team led by Northeastern’s David Choffnes has found “extensive” leakage of users’ personal identifying information from apps on mobile devices, including passwords. Their unique ReCon cloud-based system can detect those leaks and give you the tools to stop them.
Throughout Northeastern’s School of Pharmacy, researchers are making progress in solving a range of pressing health challenges.
The Network Science Institute, home of the nation’s first doctoral program in network science, brings together an interdisciplinary team of renowned Northeastern scholars to plumb the structure and function of systems and develop intervention strategies to improve the health and security of people around the world.
