This degenerative disease becomes more likely with older age, and causes a loss of central vision in the retina. In the United States more than 10 million people suffer from AMD, the majority of those aged 55 and older.

Oregon State Acquires $1.6M Spectroscopy Instrument for Advanced Materials Research

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Sun, Sep 03, 2017

Oregon State University recently acquired a new, customized $1.6 million ambient-pressure X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy system (AP-XPS).  The AP-XPS is the first instrument of its kind in the United States to incorporate an ambient-pressure scanning tunneling microscope, or AP-STM, which enables imaging of surfaces with atomic resolution. This high-tech research instrument will make the surface characterization laboratory at OSU’s College of Engineering a major resource for scientists throughout the Pacific Northwest.

University of Utah: $3.7M in Research Funding to Study Cause of Congenital Heart Defects

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Thu, Aug 24, 2017

About 1 in every 100 babies born have a congenital heart defect (CHD), a structural defect of the heart. In fact, CHDs are the most common types of birth defect. In one quarter of the cases the condition is serious enough to require surgery or other procedures within the first year of life. Despite the frequency, the cause of most congenital heart defects remains a mystery. And without knowing the cause, scientists are not been able to find a way of preventing these defects.
