If you want to catch a glimpse of the future—as in, blockbuster Hollywood sci-fi future—try going for a stroll down a picturesque stretch of waterfront in sleepy Albany, Oregon, population: 53,000 souls.
September 13, 2017 (OSU Youtube video) Natural sunscreen derived from fish
Researchers have discovered why many animal species can spend their whole lives outdoors with no apparent concern about high levels of solar exposure: they make their own sunscreen.
July 7, 2017 (Phys.org) Diatoms have sex after all, and ammonium puts them in the mood
New research shows a species of diatom, a single-celled algae, thought to be asexual does reproduce sexually, and scientists learned it's a common compound - ammonium - that puts the ubiquitous organism in the mood.
June 26, 2017 (OSU) 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.
June 15, 2017 (Fresh Plaza) OSU develops water resistant, antimicrobial wrap
Researchers at Oregon State University have developed a water-resistant and antimicrobial edible film that has the potential to extend the shelf life of foods with wet surfaces, such as meat, cheese, and cut-fruit and vegetables.
This is a new CPP drug delivery platform based on cell-penetrating self-assembling peptide nanomaterials (CSPNs). Through sequential ligation of peptide building blocks, our researchers created cell-penetrating self-assembling peptide nanomaterials (CSPNs) capable of translocating into cells.
