From facial recognition to nanomedicines, these Northeastern inventors are transforming health care and technology

A new method of measuring brain signals that can be used to diagnose eye conditions such as macular degeneration, glaucoma and optic neuritis. Nano-medications that target cancerous tumors to reduce negative side effects that come with chemotherapy. AR technologies that can let users try on different makeup brands virtually from home.

These are a few of the inventions created by Northeastern University professors Srinivas Sridhar, a distinguished professor of physics, bioengineering and chemical engineering, and Raymond Fu, an interdisciplinary professor with the College of Engineering and the Khoury College of Computer Science.

The two have been awarded one of the highest honors in invention for their contributions to the sciences and technological fields — they have been named National Academy of Inventors fellows.
