Participants sought for study on family dogs and physical activity for kids with disabilities

Researchers are recruiting children with disabilities and their family dogs to see if pairing the dog and the child can help the child become more physically active.

New gonorrhea treatment targets enzyme needed for respiration

Researchers have identified a possible new treatment for gonorrhea, using a peptide that thwarts the infection-causing bacterium by interfering with an enzyme the microbe needs to respirate.

New approach improves ability to predict metals' reactions with water

The wide reach of corrosion, a multitrillion-dollar global problem, may someday be narrowed considerably thanks to a new, better approach to predict how metals react with water.

Alloying materials of different structures offers new tool for controlling properties

New research into the largely unstudied area of heterostructural alloys could lead to greater materials control and in turn better semiconductors.

Analyzing magma temperatures may help get closer to forecasting volcanic eruptions

Although volcanic eruptions are often quite hazardous, scientists have been unable to pinpoint the processes leading up to major eruptions. A new study examines the temperature history of magma.

Study sheds light on determining surgical margins for feline tumors

Researchers at Oregon State University are paving the way for more precision in determining surgical margins for an aggressive tumor common in cats.

Public meeting set Thursday on Marine Studies Building at Hatfield Center

OSU will host an informational public meeting this Thursday, June 15, to update local residents on plans for a new building at OSU’s Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport.

OSU researcher part of $14 million NSF program for improved genomic tools

Virginia Weis has been selected for a new program aimed at helping scientists better understand the relationship between gene function and the physical characteristics of organisms.

Northwest researchers map out regional approach to studying food, energy, water nexus

Natural resource researchers at OSU and two other universities are gearing up for a late-summer summit aimed at addressing food, energy and water challenges as interconnected, regional issues.

International science team: Marine reserves can help mitigate climate change

An international team of scientists has concluded that “highly protected” marine reserves can help mitigate the effects of climate change and suggests that these areas be expanded and better managed throughout the world.
