Science of Skin
with Arup Indra, OSU College of Pharmacy

Americans spend billions to beautify their outermost organ — to make it softer and younger, to erase wrinkles, conceal freckles, fake a tan, or flaunt a tattoo. In our obsession with skin’s cosmetic qualities, it’s easy to forget the role it plays as nature’s biohazard suit. It defends our bodies against a barrage of environmental and biological assaults, from solar ultra-violet (UV) radiation and industrial pollution to extreme heat and deadly pathogens.

Cry of the Pacific Lamprey: What This Ancient Fish Is Telling Us About Our Waters
with Jeremy Monroe, Freshwaters Illustrated, and Carl Schreck, Oregon State Department of Fisheries and Wildlife

with Dr. Sugat Patel, Good Samartian Infectious Disease Clinic, Corvallis

A diagnosis of being HIV positive used to be practically a death sentence. Now, with advances in treatment, the virus that causes AIDS can be held at bay. That means a lifetime of treatment for the estimated 50,000 people who, according to the Centers for Disease Control, are infected annually in the United States.
