Scientists have demonstrated that a gene, called ELOF1, can repair sun damage and other DNA lesions that would otherwise contribute to aging.
Following habitat-destroying wildfires, researchers found that many male red-backed fairywrens failed to molt into their ornamental plumage, making them less attractive to potential mates.
The team hopes their solar water purifier will one day be used in developing countries where access to clean water is scarce.
WSU archaeologist Colin Grier is shedding light on the capabilities of ground penetrating radar to find and identify buried features, including graves, that are many decades or even centuries old.
Even after raising the fish in freshwater, researchers found that the grandchildren of sulfidic-adapted fish had more epigenetic marks in common with their wild, toxic-water-living grandparents than other freshwater fish.
The National Institutes of Health has awarded a $1.3 million Maximizing Access to Research Careers grant to WSU to fund underrepresented student researchers pursuing a biomedical program.
With summer just around the corner, the WSU Insider dug into the Ask Dr. Universe archives for a 2020 piece about why we have different seasons each year.
The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and WSU Distinguished Graduate Research Program plays an important role in training the next generation of researchers and scholars.
Graduate students Kitana Kaiphanliam and Brenden Fraser-Hevlin are working to commercialize a bioreactor that is able to grow 25 times more cancer-killing T cells than current technology in half the time.
After nearly two years of design and development, WSU researchers have created a device that converts hydrogen gas into liquid hydrogen, a highly efficient aviation fuel that will be tested in U.S. Army drones.
A new technique using colorful “soft” X‑rays offers a non-disruptive way of gaining insight into nanocarrier structures, potentially speeding their development for use in drug delivery and oil spill clean‑up.
WSU is part of a team working to improve cadmium telluride solar technology to make it more competitive with silicon solar cells.
Alterations in the epigenetic programming of hatchery-raised steelhead trout could account for their reduced fertility, abnormal health and lower survival rates compared to wild fish, according to a new WSU study.
WSU researchers have developed an innovative way to convert plastics to ingredients for jet fuel and other valuable products, making it easier and more cost effective to reuse plastics.
A count of the Western Monarch butterfly population last winter saw a staggering drop in numbers, but there are hopeful signs the beautiful pollinators are adapting to a changing climate and ecology.
Professor Arda Gozen looks to a future when doctors can hit a button to print out a scaffold on their 3D printers and create custom-made replacement skin, cartilage, or other tissue for their patients.
The study showed that a silica surface such as sand has little effect but natural organic matter can temporarily or permanently trap some types of nanoscale plastic particles.
