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.
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.
The three‑year, $515,000 grant supports research on the use of “crosscutting concepts,” or ideas that link the different domains of science.
A few days before dying, a retired engineer whose ideas were ahead of his time handed over several projects and patents to WSU, where students have picked up where he left off.
The work could lead to more durable concrete and in doing so, reduce the significant carbon emissions that go into concrete production.
David J. Allard, director of the Pennsylvania State Bureau of Radiation Protection, will address the historical uses of radium as well as its health effects on workers and the general public.
For the first time, researchers at WSU’s Institute for Shock Physics have hard evidence that human-made hexagonal diamonds are stiffer than the common cubic diamonds found in nature and often used in jewelry.
The format was different, but the excitement was the same. In the end, Grant Ely from the College of Nursing won Washington State University’s Three Minute Thesis, which took place on March 24.
A team of engineering students has developed an idea for a small-scale gasification device that would allow Nigerians and people from other countries with a limited electric power grid to convert their trash to electricity.
