The mountain stonefly, an endangered aquatic insect that lives in icy streams fed by glaciers, can tolerate warmer water temperatures at least temporarily, according to a study co-led by Scott Hotaling.
Researchers have shown that a fatty acid called DGLA can induce ferroptosis, an iron-dependent type of cell death, in human cancer cells. The discovery has many implications, including a step toward a potential cancer treatment.
In a recent Nature Reviews Microbiology article, WSU’s Michael Letko and colleagues call for more research into bat molecular biology and ecology, to help predict, and hopefully prevent, the next pandemic.
A new study challenges the idea of evolutionary chance by finding that at least 10 different lineages of fish have adapted to live in an extreme environment using the same mechanism.
A study by WSU researchers found that fears of confirming stereotypes about pregnant workers as incompetent, weak or less committed to their job can drive pregnant employees to work extra hard, risking injury.

People suffering from post‑traumatic distress disorder report that cannabis reduces the severity of their symptoms by more than half, at least in the short term, according to a recent study led by a WSU psychology professor.
An experiment by WSU researchers revealed that relatively small differences in messages influenced people’s attitudes about the HPV vaccine, which has been shown to help prevent cancer.
From the impact of a Universal Basic Income to safer nuclear fuel to muscle genes in trout—this year’s eight New Faculty Seed Grant awards span a wide range of topics and disciplines.
While Washington state officers did not support recriminalization, they noted several issues with the implementation of the 2012 law legalizing cannabis, according to a new study by WSU researchers.
