Atmospheric carbon dioxide used for energy storage products

OSU researchers have found a way to make high-tech electronic materials out of a resource we have too much of - atmospheric carbon dioxide.

Lionfish analysis reveals most vulnerable prey as invasion continues

New studies of lionfish may help researchers better understand how they, and other animal species, select their prey.

"Eyespots" in butterflies shown to distract predatory attack

Some experiments have shown how butterflies can use "eyespots" to deflect attacks on them, and live long enough to reproduce.

Rivers recover natural conditions quickly following dam removal

Rivers can quickly return to their natural state, both physically and biologically, following removal of dams, a new study shows.

Lionfish characteristics make them more "terminator" than predator

Lionfish are so voracious in eating prey in the Atlantic Ocean that they sometimes can drive populations to local extinction, a type of behavior far more aggressive than most native predators.

Advantage Accelerator "graduates" moving toward successful new businesses, jobs

The first four companies working with the OSU Advantage Accelerator have completed the program and are moving toward commercial success.

Lipoic acid helps restore, synchronize the "biological clock"

Lipoic acid may have such a wide range of biological effects because it helps to restore more normal circadian rhythms, which often decline with age.

New assay to spot fake malaria drugs could save thousands of lives

OSU chemists have developed a new technology to tell whether a common malaria medication is genuine, and it could save thousands of lives.

SAR11, oceans' most abundant organism, has ability to create methane

A new study by researchers at Oregon State University demonstrates the ability of some strains of the oceans’ most abundant organism – SAR11 – to generate methane.

"Molecular movie" technology may enable big gains in bioimaging, health research

OSU researchers have created a new type of imaging technology fast enough to capture life processes as they occur at the molecular level.
