  • Launching the Nanomedicine Academy of Minority Serving Institutions

    Nanowerk - 01/05/2016

    Nanomedicine uses nanotechnology for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease. Northeastern boasts several pioneers in the field, including Thomas Webster, the Art Zafiropoulo Chair in Engineering and the chair of Northeastern’s chemical engineering department, and Srinivas Sridhar, Arts and Sciences Distinguished Professor of Physics and director of Northeastern’s Electronic Materials Research Institute.Recently the two received a $496,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to launch the academy – a scalable, interactive network that will use Web-based videoconferencing to live broadcast graduate courses and research protocols in real-time from a classroom at Northeastern to students enrolled at four partner institutions: the University of Puerto Rico Mayaguez, Tuskegee University, Morgan State University, and Florida International University.

    Nanomedicine instructors at the host universities will oversee each class of approximately 10 students, and participants from all five schools will be able to continue learning from one another through online blogs and discussion boards.
