Thousands of Northeastern students, faculty, and staff will flock to Matthews Arena on Friday for the university’s seventh annual Relay for Life fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. Here, students reflect on how cancer has affected their lives.
Assistant professor Bryan Spring develops photodynamic therapies that both target malignant cells and halt new tumor growth. It’s a novel one-two punch approach to personalized medicine.
Thousands of students, faculty, and staff will flock to Matthews Arena on Friday, March 20, for the university’s Relay For Life event to raise money for the American Cancer Society.
Immunophysiology researcher Michail Sitkovsky and his colleagues have found that supplemental oxygenation could dramatically increase the survival rate of patients with cancer. The breakthrough findings were published Wednesday in Science Translational Medicine.
With support from the National Institutes of Health’s National Cancer Institute, Northeastern University will partner with the Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center to provide co-op experiences to undergraduate students, who will receive training to study and conduct cancer nanomedicine research.
New research co-authored by professor Vladimir Torchilin and published in the journal Nature Medicine on Sunday presents a straightforward approach to destroying cancer cells that combines traditional strategies in a novel and synergistic way.
Assistant professor of pharmaceutical sciences Tania Konry has developed a system that efficiently tests for a wide range of biological specimens. Whether you’re looking for complex cancer cell biomarkers in a sample or simple bacteria in drinking water, the system costs significantly less than standard approaches and spits out results in a fraction of the time.
From studying the physics of a heartbeat to designing new cardiac disease detection methods, these five researchers have the heart on the brain.
Fifth-year chemistry major Mark Naniong’s research while on co-op at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute made it to the pages of a prestigious academic journal—and inspired him to pursue a career linked to innovation in science.
Dinos Mavroidis, Distinguished Professor of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, and his team are developing computer software to simulate cancer drug delivery, guided by the force of a magnetic field.
In a new paper, Distinguished Professor Mansoor Amiji and his collaborators present a drug-delivery system they believe can specifically target only tumors and turn off the cancer cells’ “superpowers” that allow them to grow uncontrollably.
Katherine Tucker, professor of nutritional epidemiology in the department of Health Sciences and coauthor of a new textbook on nutrition and disease, says that following a healthy diet could prevent diabetes, heart disease, and many forms of cancer.
