Professors Jacquin Niles, Liz Nolan, and Katharina Ribbeck.

As part of our collaboration with Next Decade Alliance supporter The Dow Chemical Company, OCW recently published a great set of profiles. This collection of videos highlights the inspiring chemistry research done by three professors at MIT.

  • Professor Jacquin Niles discusses growing up in the small Caribbean nation of Anguilla and how that inspired him to study the cause and prevention of malaria.
  • Professor Liz Nolan researches the ways in which bacteria interact with the human body.
  • Professor Katharina Ribbeck explains the ways in which mucus, a type of slime, might be able to predict preterm pregnancy.
