Eva Hayes, S’16, is on co-op in the Bahamas at the Bimini Sharklab, where she swims with sharks and helps the lab study and tag them for research purposes. It’s a “dream co-op,” she said.
A new strategy for mapping networks, from those underlying the Internet to the human brain, suggests possibilities for repairing damaged connections and disrupting dangerous ones.
Working at the Large Hadron Collider has been Nick DePorzio’s dream since his senior year in high school. In a couple weeks, that dream will become a reality when the physics student starts his co-op at CERN, which hosts the famous particle collider.
More than 250 metric tons of microplastic are estimated to be floating in the world’s oceans, threatening marine life. Ethan Edson’s prototype is designed to gather data by tracking these harmful particles.
Northeastern University network scientists have found a way to connect diseases based on their shared molecular interactions, a remarkable step in understanding human diseases.

Co-op doesn’t just provide students with premier experiential learning opportunities. It also helps many find their life’s purpose, said several College of Science students who shared their stories at last week’s Spring Co-op Expo.
If you grew up in the Northeast you know that there are good days for making snowballs and there are bad days for making snowballs. You know that sometimes, despite […]
Northeastern biologists have developed a method for treating intractable chronic infections, which kill more than tens of thousands of Americans each year.
Research suggests that older adults maintain their happier outlook through different emotion regulation strategies. With a new grant from the National Institute on Aging, associate professor Derek Isaacowitz will examine how our multimedia choices play into that.
About 35 minutes north of Boston sits one of Northeastern’s single greatest gems. Perhaps once it’s best kept secret, the Marine Science Center is now going through a serious coming […]
Facebook and Twitter are powerful tools for leveraging your brand, according to a trio of social media experts who offered advice to students on Thursday.
Potentially surprising fact: there’s a positive correlation between ice cream consumption and drowning deaths, as one goes up, so does the other. At first glance this sounds pretty horrifying, but, […]
On Wednesday afternoon, incoming science students (and all incoming students, for that matter) will have the pleasure of “Twitter chatting” with someone not too far removed from their own experience. […]
Northeastern hosted the first International Translational Nanomedicine Conference over the weekend, welcoming researchers and industry experts from around the globe.
Sunny Zhou, an associate professor of chemistry and chemical biology, has received $1 million from the National Institutes of Health to study the importance of an enzyme in aging and disease.
Northeastern graduate students are working to develop the next generation of energy efficient lithium batteries.
At the first annual Sustaining Coastal Cities conference, national and international leaders began a conversation on the future of fisheries.
A little over a year ago, Justin Dowd’s boss bought a pack of colored chalk to write the day’s specials on the wall. Little did he know, that chalk would change […]
Alessandro Vespignani, the Sternberg Family Distinguished University Professor of physics, computer science and health sciences, believes that complex systems science has the potential to solve real-world challenges.
