Biochemist Adrian Gombart and collaborators have led the development of a new model for studying vitamin D’s role in infection prevention, and tests using the model suggest that vitamin D treatment can dramatically reduce the number of disease-causing bacteria in skin wounds.
Compounds from hops may combat metabolic syndrome by changing the gut microbiome and altering the metabolism of acids produced in the liver, new research by Adrian Gombart, professor of biochemistry and biophysics, suggests.
Research by Jaga Giebultowicz, a professor of zoology in the Department of Integrative Biology, suggests that the blue wavelengths produced by light-emitting diodes damage cells in the brain as well as retinas.
Materials chemist Mas Subramanian who made history a decade ago with the accidental discovery of the first new blue inorganic pigment in more than two centuries is again pushing forward the science of color.
An international team co-led by chemist Kyriakos Stylianou has uncovered a better way to scrub carbon dioxide from smokestack emissions.

The findings by entomologist George Poinar Jr. give a rare look at a heretofore unknown clade of invertebrates.
Distinguished University Professor and Advisor in Marine Studies Jane Lubchenco and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration career leaders are pushing back against political interference with weather forecasts.
The Society of Dyers and Colourists (SDC), is recognized as a leading authority for colorists around the globe. OSU chemist Mas Subramanian has received their most prestigious award.
Article discusses OSU chemist Mas Subramanian’s landmark creation of YInMn blue, the first novel blue pigment in more than 200 years. A notoriously difficult color to create, the discovery set shockwaves around the globe.
Jane Lubchenco, OSU ecologist and former administrator of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), weighs in on Trump Administration nominee for her former position.
With antibiotic resistance on the rise, scientists are looking outside the box to find novel resources. The article quotes OSU chemist Sandra Loesgen, who is spearheading a team of researchers who have found promising results looking at fish slime.
