To combat the COVID-19 pandemic, Northeastern College of Engineering researchers are conducting interdisciplinary research in four strategic areas:
- Vaccines and Diagnostics
- Healthcare and Pharmaceutical Optimization
- Human-Machine Interaction
- Harnessing Data
From developing healthcare optimization planning tools and rapid testing capabilities, to improving the safety of homemade masks, our faculty are working with hospitals, industry, government authorities, and other academic institutions to find solutions to mitigate virus risks.
ChE Assistant Professor Sidi A. Bencherif’s research on “Biomaterials and Oxygen Join Forces to Shape the Immune Response and Boost COVID-19 Vaccines” was featured on the front cover of Advanced Science.
Could there be an even more effective vaccine? This professor thinks so. Main photo: Existing COVID-19 vaccines have far surpassed public health officials’ expectations. But could they be improved upon even further? Yes, says Sidi Bencherif, assistant professor of chemical engineering at Northeastern. Here’s how.
