Chemistry professor retires from Northeastern

Associate Professor and Chair Michael Pollastri announced that Professor Max Diem retired from Northeastern University at the end of the Spring semester after a decade in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology.

Professor Diem joined Northeastern as a Full Professor in 2006; previously he worked at Southeastern Massachusetts University from 1978 to 1979, and he rose through the ranks at Hunter College of CUNY in New York City from 1979 to 2005.

“Max’s lab has been a world leader in application of infrared and Raman spectroscopic techniques for biological analyses that allow determination of healthy vs cancerous tissue in an automated manner, as well as the ability to perform cellular imaging using these techniques,” said Pollastri.

We are grateful for Max’s contributions to the Department over his tenure here; please join us in wishing him well in his retirement!

Professor Max Diem
