The University of Oklahoma has entered an agreement to develop a $9 million program of joint research with Universidad Nacional de San Agustín, one of Peru’s largest and oldest public research universities.
OU Launches $9 Million Research Collaboration with Peruvian University
U.S. HUPO Honors OU Researcher with New Investigator Award
University of Oklahoma researcher Si Wu has been selected as a winner of the Robert J. Cotter New Investigator Award, presented by the U.S. Human Proteome Organization.
The award is presented to individuals early in their careers in recognition of significant achievements in proteomics, or the large-scale study of proteins.
University of Oklahoma Research Team Helps Weather-Weary Ag Industry
You don’t have to look far to find news, opinions and studies about our world’s changing climate and its effects on humans. But what is less accessible is how a changing climate impacts beef cattle production. A team of scientists and researchers from across the region set out to answer this and other questions during the Great Plains Grazing project funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Cancer Researcher Receives OU’s First National Institutes of Health MERIT (R37) Award to Develop Precision Radiation Delivery Tool
The quest to conquer cancer is motivating a team of researchers at the University of Oklahoma to develop a 3D scanner capable of guiding the radiation treatment, dispensing just the right amount of radiation to just the precise location, making real-time adjustments as treatment is delivered.
OU Geoscientists Document the Role of Atmospheric Dust on Marine Ecosystems 300 Million Years Ago
Dust plays a crucial role in the life and health of our planet. In our modern world, dust-borne nutrients traveling in great dust storms from the Saharan Desert fertilize the soil in the Amazon Rainforest and feed photosynthetic organisms like algae in the Atlantic Ocean. In turn, it is those organisms that breathe in carbon dioxide and expel oxygen.
OU K20 Center’s Real-World Simulation Game Receives Students’ Choice Award at International Competition
A computer game developed by the K20 Center at the University of Oklahoma that allows teenagers to virtually explore life after high school received the Students’ Choice Award at an international educational gaming competition in Orlando, Florida.
OU Study Uses Genetics and Menthol to Examine How the Skin Senses Irritation
A new University of Oklahoma study could have implications on our understanding of how certain sensory signals are transmitted through the body. An OU experiment led by neuroscientist Christian Lemon, Ph.D., Department of Biology, set out to discover how menthol’s irritant sensation is transmitted by the nervous system.
OU Awarded a $4.5 Million Grant for Climate Study
The University of Oklahoma was awarded a $4.5 million grant to apply cutting-edge science, data and tools in preparation for climate extremes such as droughts, floods and heat waves. The funding, which was made possible by a grant from the U.S. Geological Survey, allows the South Central Climate Adaptation Science Center to continue to operate on the OU Norman campus for the next five years.
OU Research Group Confirm Planet-mass Objects in Extragalactic Systems
A University of Oklahoma research group is reporting the detection of extragalactic planet-mass objects in a second and third galaxy beyond the Milky Way after the first detection in 2018. With the existing observational resources, it is impossible to directly detect planet-mass objects beyond the Milky Way and to measure its rogue planetary population.
OU Awarded $2.5 Million Research Grant to Understand and Predict the Bird Flu
The University of Oklahoma is taking a key role in a new project that could help surveillance and pandemic preparedness for avian influenza viruses that infect humans, wild birds and poultry. The National Science Foundation awarded a $2.5 million grant to OU to investigate the diversity and transmission of avian influenza viruses. The grant that will be paid out over five years is in the area of disease ecology and public health.
