Northwestern University was established in 1851 in Evanston, Illinois. Northwestern University has over 18,000 undergraduate and graduate students with an endowment that exceeds $8 billion dollars. It is a private institution noted for its Feinberg School of Medicine, The Technological Institute, Ford Engineering Design Center and the Dearborn Observatory. In 2008, Northwestern opened a campus in Qatar. Northwestern University is most noted for its Institute for Complex Systems, Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center, Materials Research Center, and the Center for Catalysts and Surface Science.

New material could remove respiratory droplets from air

Although plexiglass barriers are seemingly everywhere these days—between grocery store lanes, around restaurant tables and towering above office cubicles—they are an imperfect solution to blocking virus transmission.

Crosslinker protein helps egg cells develop

A protein helps direct the flow of materials in the Drosophila ovary during the development of egg cells, according to a Northwestern Medicine study published in Current Biology.

Uncovering cellular mechanisms driving epidermal form and function

A team of Northwestern Medicine investigators has discovered a set of intracellular mechanisms that support the polarized function of the skin's outermost layer, the epidermis, according to findings published in Current Biology.

New method to untangle 3D cancer genome

Northwestern Medicine scientists have invented a new method for resolving rearranged chromosomes and their 3D structures in cancer cells, which can reveal key gene regulators that lead to the development of tumors, published ...

Rare iron mineral from rocks found in mollusk teeth

Northwestern University researchers have, for the first time, discovered a rare mineral hidden inside the teeth of a chiton, a large mollusk found along rocky coastlines. Before this strange surprise, the iron mineral, called ...

New 'Swiss Army knife' cleans up water pollution

Phosphate pollution in rivers, lakes and other waterways has reached dangerous levels, causing algae blooms that starve fish and aquatic plants of oxygen. Meanwhile, farmers worldwide are coming to terms with a dwindling ...

New method to analyze nucleosomes

Northwestern Medicine scientists have developed a new method to analyze the protein composition of intact nucleosomes without losing combinatorial information present in chromatin. The technique, called Nuc-MS, could help ...

Stunning simulation of stars being born is most realistic ever

A team including Northwestern University astrophysicists has developed the most realistic, highest-resolution 3D simulation of star formation to date. The result is a visually stunning, mathematically-driven marvel that allows ...

Uncovering epigenetic mechanisms underlying cancer development

Northwestern Medicine studies published in Nature Cell Biology and Molecular Cell are improving the understanding of epigenetic mechanisms in cancer development and progression, as well as pinpointing genes that drive the ...
