Research paves way for new source for leukemia drug

Chemistry researchers at Oregon State University have patented a method for making anti-leukemia compounds that until now have only been available via an Asian tree that produces them.

New research opens door to more efficient chemical processes across spectrum of industries

Chemical processes that are more efficient and less expensive may be coming to industries ranging from battery manufacturing to detergent production thanks to an Oregon State University researcher’s work advancing metal oxides as catalysts.

More extreme coastal weather events in Oregon likely to increase bluff erosion, landslide activity

Unstable slopes on Oregon’s coastline could see a 30 percent jump in landslide movements if extreme storms become frequent enough to increase seacliff erosion by 10 percent, a new study by Oregon State University shows.

OSU ramping up research to better predict wildfire behavior

On the heels of Oregon’s most expensive wildfire season ever in 2018, researchers at Oregon State University are ramping up efforts to better predict how the blazes behave, including how they generate fire-spreading embers.

Mosquitoes that carry malaria may have been doing so 100 million years ago

The anopheline mosquitoes that carry malaria were present 100 million years ago, new research shows, potentially shedding fresh light on the history of a disease that continues to kill more than 400,000 people annually.

Research showcase highlights work of engineering graduate students

Want to learn more about the Oregon State University College of Engineering’s far-ranging research efforts, including asking questions of those conducting the research? The college’s sixth annual Graduate Research Showcase provides that opportunity.

Proton transport ‘highway’ may pave way to better high-power batteries

Researchers have found that a chemical mechanism first described more than two centuries ago holds the potential to revolutionize energy storage for high-power applications like vehicles or electrical grids.

Renowned researcher to lead OSU school

Paradigm shift needed for designing tsunami-resistant bridges

Researchers, including two Oregon State University scientists, argue in a new study that a paradigm shift is needed for assessing bridges’ tsunami risk.

50 years ago, OSU grad introduced the computer mouse and the world hasn’t been the same since

Fifty years ago this week, a quiet engineer, who had graduated from Oregon State University, introduced the world to windows, hypertext, video conferencing, computer graphics and the computer mouse – the latter a wooden block on wheels – years before they advanced daily business and consumer processes. .
