For the past 10 years, Northeastern-led research teams have been studying how the environment affects the health and development of mothers, infants, and children living on the island of Puerto Rico. Now, the researchers have received a $13.2 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to continue their study of the effects of environmental contaminants on the well-being of people in the region.
The College of Engineering’s Undergraduate Lab Fair is tonight. Here’s the story of Nicholas Fresneda, whose visit to last year’s fair connected him with the Computer Architecture Research lab and inspired him to consider a research lab co-op. “The fair is a great opportunity to connect with a lab and learn more about the kinds of work you might be doing on co-op or after graduation,” Fresneda explained.
