Recent work from the Bowen Lab & colleagues from the Plum Island Long Term Ecological Research team highlights the dynamic, though often disconnected nature of bacteria in salt marsh ponds that are likely to expand due to increased rates of sea level rise.
Northeastern Researcher Develops Revolutionary MRI Technique to Better Understand Neurological Diseases
We already have all sorts of maps – of highways and hiking trails, of floor plans and tunnels, View posteven of skeletal systems and the evolution of our ancestors. Now, for the first time, we will have a blood volume map of the human brain – a detailed layout of the complicated network of vessels that […]

Northeastern researcher develops revolutionary MRI technique to better understand neurological diseases
A new MRI brain imaging technique developed by Northeastern researcher Srinivas Sridhar will use magnetic nanoparticles to create the first atlas of blood volume in the human brain. The results will be used to better identify and address neurological diseases, such as Alzheimer’s and drug addiction.
