Natural Gas for Transportation
with Chris Hagen, PhD, assistant professor in the energy systems engineering program at OSU-Cascades

In the future, you may be able to fill-up for your car or truck at home with natural gas. In an energy systems engineering lab at OSU-Cascades in Bend, researchers are experimenting with a system that uses a vehicle’s own engine to compress and store gas from the same network of pipes that feeds your furnace and kitchen stove.

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

Lamprey lack the charisma of Chinook salmon, steelhead or even the sturgeon. With a powerful mouth disc, lamprey latch onto other fish and suck out body fluids. Older than the dinosaurs, these ancient fish have successfully negotiated at least four planetary extinction events. However, they may not survive changes brought about by humans.

Living with HIV/AIDS: A Medical Success Story
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.
