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.

Patent
Northeastern University | Date: 2015-05-19

This invention relates to, in part, compositions and methods that are useful for, inter alia, the treatment of various diseases, including those linked to binding at a serotonin receptor. The compositions include chiral tetrahydronaphthalen-2-amine derivatives. Accordingly, the present invention provides for compositions and methods that agonize or antagonize one or more serotonin receptors and which find Use in the treatment of various neuropsychiatric diseases or disorders including, without limitation, autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or associated symptoms.

A photovoltaic device is fabricated using nanostructured hybrid ferrite materials with interdigital electrodes. The device includes ferrimagnetic ferrite nanopartides having a tunable narrow bandgap of 2.5 eV or less, which are deposited onto a thin ferroelectric film. The device produces an ultrahigh photocurrent density of 13-15 mA/cm^(2 )when illuminated with sunlight of 100 mW/cm^(2), which is comparable to that of organic or silicon-based solar cells.


Patent
Northeastern University and The General Hospital Corporation | Date: 2015-03-16

Microfluidic devices for use with reagents bound to microspheres for determination of the concentration of an analyte in a liquid sample are provided. The devices include two sequential mixing channels that promote rapid binding of microsphere-bound reagents with reagents in solution and a means for detecting labeled microsphere-bound reaction products. Also provided are methods for using the devices with microsphere-bound reagents to determine the concentration of an analyte in a liquid sample and to measure the binding affinity of antibody for an antigen.

A method for high rate assembly of nanoelements into two-dimensional void patterns on a non-conductive substrate surface utilizes an applied electric field to stabilize against forces resulting from pulling the substrate through the surface of a nanoelement suspension. The electric field contours emanating from a conductive layer in the substrate, covered by an insulating layer, are modified by a patterned photoresist layer, resulting in an increased driving force for nanoelements to migrate from a liquid suspension to voids on a patterned substrate having a non-conductive surface. The method can be used for the production of microscale and nanoscale circuits, sensors, and other electronic devices.

A system and method are provided to detect, analyze and digitally remove makeup from an image of a face. An autoencoder-based framework is provided to extract attractiveness-aware features to perform an assessment of facial beauty.


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.


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.
