We opened an innovation and research hub in Portland, Maine; investigated a mysterious coral disease in the waters off Panama; and learned how to grow greens at an indoor farm in Burlington, Massachusetts. This and much more, all through the lenses of News@Northeastern’s award-winning photographers.
