The Research Alliance in Science and Engineering (RAISE)

at Northeastern University is the first student research group of its kind.

Through integrative education and collaboration between undergraduate chemistry students and faculty mentors, RAISE continues the teaching curriculum beyond the classroom and into the real world.

 

RAISE was founded in 2017 by Emily Navarette, COS '19, and Dr. Lykourinou following the redevelopment of the chemistry teaching curriculum.

 
OUR

Research

01

We are engineering a system designed for the remediation of estrogenic contamination from groundwater and run off. 

Through green and inorganic chemistry coupled with electrolytic cells, our system will break down organic contaminants without introducing harmful chemicals into the environment.
