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.Read More

For millions of people worldwide, conditions such as macular degeneration and retinitis pigmentosa can cause progressive and irreversible vision loss, brought on by a loss of function in the eye’s photoreceptor cells. In an effort to turn back the clock on this process, a researcher from the University of Oregon is implementing a novel technology.Read More
West Nile Virus is a debilitating disease that is spread by the bite of an infected mosquito. Much like victims of malaria, and other mosquito-born pathogens, those affected by West Nile virus are at risk for serious illness or even death.Read More

HIV and AIDS have been a conspicuous concern worldwide for several decades now; research into its treatment regularly gains national attention and benefits from billions of dollars in research funding. What many people may not realize, however, is that simian immunodeficiency virus, (or SIV, a nonhuman primate form of HIV that causes AIDS in monkeys) may hold the keys to unlocking the mysteries of how HIV can be treated in humans.Read More
Oregon Health and Science University along with two other public Oregon schools recently opened a new life sciences building, the state’s largest academic building, on Portland’s South Waterfront. The project received $110 million in life science funding from taxpayers, $92 million in funding from Oregon Health and Science University institutional funding, $83 million from OHSU philanthropy and $10 million from the TriMet regional mass transit agency. The riverfront property for the new research building was donated by the Schnitzer family to help OHSU increase its campus presence in Portland.
