  • A new era for human fertility research

    In 2004, Jon Tilly, professor and chair of the Department of Biology, overturned the paradigm that female mammals do not produce new egg cells after birth. His discovery has opened the floodgates for new clinical approaches to combat infertility and perhaps even stave off menopause.

  • Deep water data

  • Northeastern Hosts 2013 SWIM CONFERENCE

  • Weekly Webcrawl

Toxoplasmosis, which emboldens mice in the presence of cats and gives humans schizophrenic-like traits, is still my favorite parasite. A new bug repellent renders you invisible to mosquitoes. I’m not sure this qualifies as science, nor whether it’s really ethical, but it’s certainly […]

Of course, it wasn’t milk of the poppy that sent Patterson into an  inspirational reverie, but rather the […]

  • “All models are wrong, some are useful”
