Research and technology brings innovation to chemical engineering. From growing new cartilage cells to help osteoarthritus, to improving drug delivery for cancer patients, chemical engineering offers new solutions to some of our greatest societal challenges.
BMES Award to Further Biomedical Engineering
Assistant Professor Abigail Koppes, chemical engineering, won the Rita Schaffer Young Investigator Award from the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES). The BMES Rita Schaffer Young Investigator Award is offered each year to stimulate research careers in biomedical engineering.
NSF CAREER Award to Address Cardiovascular Disease
Eno Ebong, assistant professor of chemical engineering, recently received the National Science Foundation CAREER Award. She and her team are studying endothelial cells that line blood vessels to better understand how the blood flow environment and stiffness of the underlying tissue contribute to cardiovascular disease risk.
Engineering in Action
World-Renowned Cooperative Education
Bradley Priem, BS, chemical engineering, had two co-ops that gave him the ability to delve into a particular industry. At Synlogic he was a bioanalytical chemist and bacterial engineer creating e-coli strains, and at bluebird bio he was an upstream process development engineer for gene production. He now knows he wants to go into the biotech industry and is interested in graduate school too.
Global Research Co-op
Taylor Wilde, BS chemical engineering student, worked in a research lab at École Normale Supérieure, a university in Paris. Wilde collaborated with a postdoctoral researcher to create nanomaterials using a chemical vapor deposition, or CVD, furnace. It helped him land his third co-op at GVD Corporation in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where worked again with a CVD furnace. Ultimately, Wilde wants to work in renewable energy and contribute to the efforts across the globe to lower society’s carbon footprint.
Congratulations to chemical engineering student Julia Hines, BS/MS’21 and bioengineering student Kerry Eller, E’21, who are recipients of Richard J. Scranton Scholarships.
Bouve/ChE University Distinguished Professor Mansoor Amiji explains how Pfizer’s new vaccine for COVID will work. This vaccine could prevent COVID-19 in 9 out of 10 people. But how does it work? On Monday, the pharmaceutical company Pfizer announced that its COVID-19 vaccine is more than 90 percent effective at preventing the disease according to preliminary […]
ChE and BioE Professor Eno Ebong Presents Invited Talk at American Society for Investigative Pathology Symposium
ChE and BioE Associate Professor Eno Ebong presented an invited talk entitled “Glycocalyx-Mediated Vascular Remodeling and Permeability in Disturbed Flow” at PISA (Pathobiology for Investigators, Students, & Academicians) 2020, an American Society for Investigative Pathology symposium.
With a focus on experiential learning and research, the College of Engineering at Northeastern is offering a new undergraduate research program—the Undergraduate Program for Leaders In Future Transformation (UPLIFT). The program is designed to nurture high-potential undergraduate talent through transformative experiential research and learning opportunities. Beginning in their first year of study at Northeastern, UPLIFT […]
