Thomas Webster, professor and chair of the chemical engineering department, knows the value of working overseas and of conducting research outside Northeastern. Putting the two together, he launched a summer program that gives undergraduates research opportunities at seven universities around the world and brings students from those institutions here.
Department of Chemical Engineering Chair Thomas Webster explains how nanotechnology could be used to fight Ebola and other deadly viruses.
A few years ago, biologists Slava Epstein and Yoshiteru Aoi fantasized about a device that would work like a highway lane closure to isolate pure bacterial samples from the environment. They teamed with assistant professor of chemical engineering Ed Goluch to make their dream a reality.
New professor Hicham Fenniri, an international leader in nanotechnology, has built organic nanotubes that could lead to breakthroughs in research areas ranging from drug delivery to alternative energy.
