Program Flyer

Description:

In recent years many engineering and science students have developed an interest in applying their engineering skills to diverse problems in biology, health, environment and remote sensing. At Northeastern, increasing numbers of students are working in imaging, through courses, research projects, and cooperative education assignments. Students wishing to work in this discipline in the future require not only strong technical skills (which transcend national borders), but a knowledge of the financial, political, cultural, and social issues that vary from one country to another. The theme of this program is international research and development in the US and Chile. This program is designed for students with an interest in optics or signal processing, or both. The program has three main components: (1) Prof. Charles A. DiMarzio at NU, will offer a rigorous 4–semester–hour “technical elective” course in Hyperspectral Imaging to students (2) The faculty at Universidad de Los Andes will offer a 4SH course in Chilean culture . (3) The program will include excursions to historical and cultural sites around Santiago and neighboring areas. (4) Students will participate in cultural activities with UANDES and international students. Each student will have a "buddy" who will help orient and integrate the student into the campus culture. Prof. DiMarzio conducts research in biomedical optics with a group of graduate and undergraduate students and faculty collaborators in ECE and MIE. He has worked 14 years in industry prior to his career at Northeastern, and is strongly committed to introducing undergraduates to both academic and industrial research and development.

Ireland, England, and Switzerland: Drug Discovery and Development

Traditional | , Switzerland

Study abroad coordinator: Katherine Pruess (k.pruess@neu.edu)

The contemporary chemical industry owes its origins to pioneering research and development conducted in 18th century in Europe. Through the 19th and 20th century, chemistry was an enabling force in the development of commodity products spanning fabric dyes, paints, petrochemical products, plastics, explosives, narcotics, agrochemicals, and ultimately pharmaceuticals. From its origins in Germany and Switzerland, the industry has grown substantively to become a global industry with major activity in North America and Europe, with emerging activity in Asia, South America and Russia. This dialogue will give students a global perspective on the science underpinning contemporary drug discovery. As classic small molecule pharmaceuticals and being supplanted by next generation biopharmaceuticals, students will learn of the strategies corporations engage in to develop new product pipelines and the innovation engine which spawned the development of the biopharmaceutical industry. The dialogue will involve academic instruction in the chemistry of drug design, development and production coupled with exposure to industrial processes through a series of site visits in three countries. The dialogue will be initially based in Dublin, Ireland in the grounds of University College Dublin. The campus is adjacent to the National Institute for Bioprocessing Research and Training [NIBRT], who will provide an overview of the steps involved in the manufacture of biopharmaceuticals. We will also visit a number of biotechnology corporations who have facilities in Ireland in the Cork / Waterford area. Participants will then travel to the UK and visit research and manufacturing sites in the Liverpool area. Finally the dialogue will travel to Basel, Switzerland where interactions with a number of multinational pharmaceutical corporations will be facilitated. Throughout the dialogue, students will engage on a directed study project related to the biopharmaceutical industry. A series of cultural experiences will be arranged in Ireland, the UK and Switzerland, including meetings with research students at regional Universities.
