Last month, the Northeastern women’s hockey team made it to the NCAA finals, the U.S. ramped up its vaccine distribution, club sports and indoor fitness classes resumed on the Boston campus, and the weather was finally warm enough to enjoy some time outside. Northeastern University’s award-winning photographers captured it all. Take a look back through March.

Many pharmaceutical drugs don’t work as well for women as for men—and women are more often misdiagnosed for strokes and ADHD. Rebecca M. Shansky, associate professor of psychology at Northeastern, says the root of problem lies with research—and the fact that many scientists have only used male mice in their studies.
