3-D printers are becoming more and more accessible to the public, making some worried about their ability to create weapons that are untraceable. One Utah undergraduate student researches these so-called ghost guns, investigating the impact these guns can have on law enforcement and possible solutions.
Our eyes contain small, complex cells with many important jobs. A new major grant at Utah State University aims to increase our understanding of one of these specific types of cells in our eyes - retinal pigmented epithelium cells, also known as RPE cells.
According to the US Geological Survey, 72 percent of Utah’s water is used for irrigation, but there is not a clear understanding of water use at a field level. New research based at Utah State University offers insight about small farm water use in Cache Valley.
The leaves and branches decomposing in rivers play a key role in the global carbon cycle. New research at more than 1,000 sites around the world investigates how river decomposition rates can differ in locations at different latitudes.
PCOS, polycystic ovary syndrome, is one of the most common causes of infertility among women and can also cause serious health problems. According to the Office of Women’s Health, polycystic ovary syndrome- also known as PCOS -affects one in 10 women of childbearing age.
