Genetic Factor Discovery Enables Adult Skin to Regenerate Like a Newborn Baby’s
A newly identified genetic factor allows adult skin to repair itself like the skin of a newborn babe. The discovery by Washington State University researchers has implications for better skin wound treatment as well as preventing some of the aging process in skin.

Gene editing to produce 'super dad' livestock
Scientists have produced gene-edited animals they say could serve as "super dads" or "surrogate sires".
Gene-edited livestock ‘surrogate sires’ successfully made fertile
For the first time, scientists have created pigs, goats and cattle that can serve as viable “surrogate sires,” male animals that produce sperm carrying only the genetic traits of donor animals.
WSU-inspired national gene-editing task force begins work
With the world’s population projected to reach ~10 billion in 30 years, scientists are working to use genetic technologies to address future food security problems.
Study finds fatty acid that kills cancer cells
Researchers have demonstrated that a fatty acid called dihomogamma-linolenic acid, or DGLA, can kill human cancer cells.
Students, grads fight COVID‑19 this summer
While many Washington State University graduates celebrated the coming summer break, some stuck around to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.
Gene-Editing in Animal Agriculture Task Force Established
Jon Oatley selected to serve on the APLU and the AAVMC Gene Editing Task Force.
WSU senior headed to Wales as a Fulbright Student
WSU senior biology and music double major and future veterinarian Thomas LeClair is the 2020 recipient of a Fulbright Student Award.
The Scientists Taking Atomic-Level Pictures Of The Coronavirus
Even before the word “coronavirus” inserted itself into the nation’s vocabulary, a national group of scientists jumped into the effort to start revealing those protein structures, structures that hold the keys to vaccines and treatments.
When Kathryn Sutherland ('19 Microbiology) was growing up her father was in the U.S. Air Force and they moved so frequently, she was never able to own pets.
Less than two years after Lauren Breymeyer (‘19) graduated from Washington State University’s School of Molecular Biosciences, she’s now one of the frontline heroes combating the deadly pandemic.
