Inexpensive Malaria Drug Test Found at Oregon State University

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Fri, Aug 29, 2014

Malaria is a devastating global health problem in many parts of the world, having caused nearly 215 million infections internationally and 655,000 deaths per year. Most people know malaria is transmitted by the bite of an infective mosquito: the female Anopheles mosquito in particular. There are other less common methods of transmission as well, including blood transfusion, organ transplantation, needle sharing and when a mother gives birth to a child.

Life Science Funding Totals $3M at Oregon State in New NIH Grant

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Wed, Jul 23, 2014

The Oregon State University Superfund Research Program recently received $3 million in life science funding from the National Institutes of Health. This multi-investigator, multi-disciplinary and multi-institution program makes its goal the development of new technologies to assess polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) present at many Superfund sites and the analysis of the potential risk these hydrocarbons may have for people who come in contact with them. The NIH Project Information page goes into more details on the goals of the Oregon State University Superfund Research Program:

Oregon State Food Science Research Turns Wine Grape Pulp to Profit

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Fri, Mar 15, 2013


Americans are making, drinking, and exporting more wine than ever before. A hobby for some and serious business for others, winemaking consumes a whole lot of grapes every year (in the neighborhood of 4 million tons in the US alone), and that number is growing. But as with any type of industry, there's a certain industrial waste to be managed. In the case of winemaking, it's called pomace, and up to now vintners have been paying to have the pulpy mass hauled away. Now food science researchers at Oregon State University in Corvallis have come up with a process to make pomace into useful products, from biodegradable fiberboard to a nutritional foodstuff, which is the kind of earth-friendly, business-savvy research from which OSU is likely to profit nicely when the technology is commercialized internationally.
