The Biomedical Engineering Society Diversity Award, presented this year to Srinivas Sridhar, University Distinguished Professor of Physics, Bioengineering, and Chemical Engineering. “This award recognizes the work I’ve been doing for the past 10 years, a path motivated by spreading knowledge and breaking down barriers to access of knowledge,” he said.
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.
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.
Throughout Northeastern’s School of Pharmacy, researchers are making progress in solving a range of pressing health challenges.
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.
Eno Ebong, an assistant professor of chemical engineering, harnesses the power of multiple fields—from chemical engineering to nanomedicine—to lay the groundwork for treating vascular disease.
Students in the first cohort of an exciting new cancer nanomedicine research co-op program are wrapping up their experiential learning opportunities, which they say have been nothing short of career-defining.
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.
Department of Chemical Engineering Chair Thomas Webster explains how nanotechnology could be used to fight Ebola and other deadly viruses.
Thomas Webster, professor and chair of Northeastern’s Department of Chemical Engineering, has been named president of the U.S. Society for Biomaterials, a 3,000-plus-member organization dedicated to enhancing human health and quality of life through biomaterials 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.
Professor Thomas Webster, chair of the Department of Chemical Engineering, is exploring nanomedicine approaches that could have a major impact on healing sports injuries like those suffered by Patriots’ tight end Rob Gronkowski, who tore his ACL and MCL.
