Northeastern University is a private nonprofit research university located in Boston, Massachusetts. The university features a range of undergraduate and graduate programs leading to degrees through the doctorate in nine colleges and schools, as well as advanced degrees at graduate campuses in Charlotte, North Carolina, and Seattle, Washington.Northeastern's main campus is located in the Fenway, Roxbury, South End, and Back Bay neighborhoods. The university has roughly 16,000 undergraduates and almost 8,000 graduate students. Northeastern is categorized as a RU/H Research University by the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education. In 2011, Northeastern opened the George J. Kostas Research Institute for Homeland Security.Northeastern features a cooperative education program that integrates classroom study with professional experience on seven continents. In 2012-2013, 7,968 students participated in the co-op program.The Northeastern University Huskies compete in the NCAA Division I as members of Colonial Athletic Association in 18 varsity sports offered by the CAA. The men's and women's hockey teams compete in Hockey East, while the men's and women's rowing teams compete in the Eastern Association of Rowing Colleges and Eastern Association of Women's Rowing Colleges , respectively. In 2013, men's basketball won its first CAA regular season championship, men's soccer won the CAA title for the first time, and women's ice hockey won a record 16th Beanpot championship. Wikipedia.

Disclosed herein are systems and methods to detect and manage information leaks resulting from network flows generated responsive to user interaction with a computing device(105). For example, an information leak control system (110) may be configured to generate an information leak model using at least one labeled network flow comprising at least one labeled information leak, detect an information leak of a device network flow of at least one device based on the information leak model, receive user feedback associated with the information leak, and update the model based on the user feedback. In addition, the information leak control system may be configured to present information leaks to users via a graphical user interface (130) configured to allow users to provide the user feedback. In some examples, the information leak control system may be configured to modify the device network flow based on the information leak and/or the user feedback.

The invention relates to bioactive surface coatings deposited on selected substrates. Surface nanostructured film coatings deposited on most metal or nonmetal substrates to provide surfaces can be engineered to promote enhanced tissue/cell adhesion. Attached cells, including osteoblasts, fibroblasts and endothelial cells, retain viability and will readily differentiate and proliferate under appropriate conditions. Fibroblasts and endothelial cells exhibit good attachment and growth on most coated substrates, except on nano surfaced structured silicone.


A compound is represented as Formula I, a tautomer thereof, a stereoisomer thereof, or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof. Compounds of Formula I are inhibitors of N-acylethanolamine hydrolyzing acid amidase (NAAA). The present technology is directed to compounds, compositions, and methods to inhibit N-acylethanolamine hydrolyzing acid amidase and to treat N-acylethanolamine hydrolyzing acid amidase mediated conditions in a subject.

Patent
Northeastern University, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Brigham and Women's Hospital | Date: 2017-05-31

A method of detecting migration of tumor cells is provided by implanting in a region of tumor cells one or more implants having a matrix material of a biocompatible and biodegradable polymer, and a plurality of nanoparticles dispersed within the matrix material and functionalized to bind tumor cells. Nanoparticles bound to the tumor cells that have migrated out of the region can be detected by various imaging modalities. The implant can be in the shape of a brachytherapy spacer or radiotherapy fiducial maker or can be a coating on a brachytherapy spacer or fiducial marker. A method of treating cancer is provided by implanting one or more brachytherapy spacers or fiducial markers including the matrix material and an anti-cancer therapeutic agent dispersed within the matrix material.

An electrode architecture for lithium ion batteries provides cooling of the bulk electrode during room temperature to high temperature (e.g., 50C - 80C) battery operation. The battery electrode architecture includes alternating layers of lithium ion active material and current collection layers containing with interconnections between current collection layers. The current collection layers contain metallic multi-walled carbon nanotubes which have high electrical and thermal conductivity. Also provided are lithium ion batteries containing the electrode. The batteries have enhanced lifetime due to avoidance of degradation reactions in the active material at high temperatures.
