Oregon State University (OSU) is a public university established in 1868 in Corvallis, Oregon. OSU has over 20,000 undergraduate and graduate students. Noteworthy programs in nuclear engineering, ecology, public health, chemistry, biochemistry, oceanography, food science and pharmacy receive national high marks for research and education. OSU has the unusual status of being a land-grant, space-grant, sea-grant and sun-grant university which provides a constant stream of funds for research. OSU routinely publishes its research on-line and the media is provided exceptional access.

Rocky Mountain National Park provides habitat for not one, but two subspecies of the American pika, a species thought to be closely connected with climate change, according to a new study.
New research shows that mice and voles scurry to bear scats to forage for seeds, finding nutritional value in the seeds and in some cases further dispersing them.
Nanofiber-based wound dressings loaded with vitamin D spur the production of an antimicrobial peptide, a key step forward in the battle against surgical site infections, or SSIs.
A research team has successfully recorded the sound of methane bubbles from the seafloor off the Oregon coast using a hydrophone, opening the door to using acoustics to identify—and perhaps quantify—this important greenhouse ...
Selected intervals in the past that were as warm or warmer than today can help us understand what the Earth may be like under future global warming.
