- Read more about three Chemistry & Biochemistry research labs using the expertise of their faculty, student and staff research teams to investigate other possible ways to combat COVID-19.
- Read more about the effort to develop software that can create more accurate models of scientific phenomena — such as what happened in the microseconds after the Big Bang or how long a radioactive nucleus will live before it decays.
College of Arts & Sciences faculty and students ask a lot questions in their pursuit of new knowledge.
Ohio University is a research-intensive institution, and each year College of Arts & Sciences faculty and students produce dozens of books, hundreds of peer-reviewed articles, and hundreds of conference presentations.
- Read about our journeys, our questions--and why we explore yesterday, today and tomorrow.
- News about research and scholarly activities.
Dr. Winfried Just discusses the ways in which mathematical models can predict the spread of infectious diseases like coronavirus.
"The No. 1 thing about doing research—it’s fun," says Dr. Sarah Wyatt. "We do this because we’re curious. We want to know how something works. It’s a lot of hard work. But you have to keep reminding yourself: This is the information we’re looking for. And when you find it, you’re the first person to ever have seen it. You’re the first person to know this. That’s the coolest part."
