Northeastern President Joseph E. Aoun and Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker will announce Tuesday that a program developed by Northeastern and Middlesex Community College to offer students a fast track to earning associate’s, bachelor’s, and master’s degrees in biotechnology and preparing for careers in life sciences has received a $4.4 million grant from the National Science Foundation. The grant will fund scholarships that support low-income and underrepresented minorities.
Graduate student in Mathematics Monika Pichler was selected to participate at the 6th Heidelberg Laureate Forum this September, a conference that connects laureates in mathematics and computer science with students.
More than 70,000 people in the United States died from drug overdoses in 2017. The majority of those deaths were linked to opioids. This number has been rising for the past two decades and shows no signs of slowing down. Ganesh Thakur, an associate professor in Northeastern’s Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, is hunting for a way to stop this epidemic.
In recent years, researchers have begun to fight cancer by genetically engineering a patient’s own immune system to target the disease. Quad Technologies, a company that grew out of a Northeastern research lab, has been developing technology to facilitate this process. This summer, Quad Technologies was acquired by a global life sciences company that will help […]
