Love of animals plus alumni tie yields a game-changing campus gift (Inside Philanthropy)

Carlson has several dogs with his girlfriend, including a Maltese named Sugar that comes to Carlson’s office every day.  So that’s very sweet and all, but it also translates to $50 million for Oregon State University, which will potentially more than double the size of the school’s renowned small animal teaching hospital, adding two wings, new oncology equipment, and will essentially lock down its future as a top veterinary facility.

Oregon State University: 150 years of growth and change (KLCC)

As part of our 50th Anniversary Road Trip series, KLCC’s Tiffany Eckert takes us on a walking tour of Oregon State University in Corvallis. The institution is in the midst of Sesquicentennial celebrations.

The future of nuclear power? Think small (LA Times)

It’s not quite Stagg Field, the University of Chicago site of the first nuclear chain reaction in 1942. But perched in what looks like a giant birdcage at Oregon State University is a steel cylinder nearly 20 feet tall, thick as a redwood, bristling with gauges and wrapped in a tangle of wires. Nearby, in a windowless control room, two dozen digital displays surround a central operations bench.

Can kelp and seagrass help oysters adapt to major ocean change? (KUOW)

Oregon State University scientist Caitlin Magel sifts through a muddy clump of leaves and roots in the shallow water of a tide flat in Netarts Bay on Oregon’s North Coast.  She’s surrounded by a long, thin bed of sea grass. (see also OPB)

Finding Michigan’s 5-mile crater, other meteor targets (Detroit Free Press)

Twin Peaks trees under threat (Geographical)


‘The Douglas fir is incredibly important.,’ says David Shaw, associate professor at Oregon State University and Extension Forest Health specialist. ‘It is the number one timber species, the state tree of Oregon, an important old-growth forest giant (they can live a thousand years), and a very common tree.’

New zebrafish model explores mysteries of autism spectrum disorders (ALN)

The Oregon State University research team revealed that exposure to valproic acid immediately after fertilization caused zebrafish embryos to develop an enlarged head. This is a macrocephalic phenotype commonly seen in autism spectrum disorder.

Dogs can get the flu – but can’t share it with humans (Sacramento Bee)

“Pet owners sick with the flu should take care to avoid possible transmission to their pets,” says Dr. Christiane V. Loehr, a veterinary pathologist and associate professor at Oregon State University Carlson College of Veterinary Medicine.

He speaks for the trees (Gazette-Times)

Paul Ries believes Oregon’s trees have stories to tell. And since they can’t speak for themselves, he speaks for them. Ries heads up the graduate certificate program in urban forestry at Oregon State University’s College of Forestry, where he has also served as an instructor and Extension agent, but in the mid-1990s he was working for the Oregon Department of Forestry.

OSU student govt. rep, under fire for white nationalist views, now faces felony hate crime (Oregonian)
