Ohio State Researchers Find Better Fibromyalgia Diagnosis

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Fri, Jul 26, 2013

Researchers at Ohio State University have come up with a dependable way to use a finger-stick blood sample to detect fibromyalgia syndrome, a complex pain disorder that often is complicated to diagnose. The test could potentially reduce the wait for diagnosis by five years if it’s someday made available to primary care physicians.

Ohio State Research Finds Apples Good For the Heart

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Nov 08, 2012

It’s no secret that eating fruits and vegetables is vital to a healthy diet. After all, everyone knows an apple a day keeps the doctor away. A new study on apples from Ohio State University takes that paradigm even father. Besides serving as a delicious snack, juice, and pie ingredient, apples appear to have cholesterol-reducing effects as well.

Science Wet Labs Coming to Ohio State University, New Research Building

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Fri, Jul 27, 2012

Sometimes it makes more sense to start from scratch and get it right than to try and retrofit and modernize older lab buildings. That's just what Ohio State University in Columbus decided to do for its Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and Chemistry Building (CBEC). The new 225,000 gsf lab building broke ground last month and will replace 4 older facilities that had deferred maintenance and lacked proper floor-to-floor height, structural dimensions, and environmental stability. The New Koffolt Laboratories will be LEED-certifiable (possibly Silver) and will constitute a substantial upgrade with their science wet labs, computational research spaces, shared core laboratories, instructional spaces, and offices. The $126M project is due to be completed in September 2014.
