This solver of scientific paradoxes has been named a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement for Sciences
Kim Lewis, who has made several major discoveries in the fight against bacterial infections, has been named a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
Scientists estimate that we share our bodies with 38 trillion organisms that play an integral part in keeping us healthy and making us who we are. They crawl across our skin, cling to our intestines, and generally call our bodies home. Now, a study led by researchers at Northeastern shows that there is a potential link between the bacteria that live in our gut and clinical depression.
Congratulations Prof. Chai on your 2017 NSF Career Award! In [his] years at Northeastern, Chai has helped – in collaboration with research groups at Harvard – provide techniques essential to understanding and driving future research in this field. These collaborative experiences were driven by resources provided by the College of Science, he says. “The College of […]
"Dr. Epstein’s research focused on what he believes to be the single greatest barrier in the way of understanding microbial life. It is known as the great plate count anomaly." –Joshua Timmons, Biology Class of 2017 for COS News
"Philip Strandwitz wants you. Really. He also wants all of your friends, and probably your parents and relatives, too. Strandwitz, a PhD candidate for microbiology in Kim Lewis’s lab, the Antimicrobial Discovery Center, is taking a creative approach to big data that could be a model for the future of science." –Emily Ashbolt, Biomedical Physics, 2017 COS News article
