Iowa State is a partner institution in a new, $104 million research center funded by the U.S. Department of Energy. Led by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the project will study the next generation of plant-based, sustainable, cost-effective biofuels and bioproducts.
Jeff Witt, Facilities Planning & Management's director of utility services, said some cool air has been restored to affected campus buildings, offering relief. Chillers No. 3 and 4 (of five total) are coming back up this afternoon. Everything should be back to normal by sometime tonight, Witt said. "And then we should be in good shape for the remainder of the week," he added. The early morning power outage was caused by a failed lightning arrester on the transformer.
Iowa State University broke another record in FY 2017, receiving $503.6 million in external funding. This is the fourth record year in a row for funding that includes grants, contracts, gifts and cooperative agreements from federal, state and local governments, as well as from corporations, nonprofits and other universities for research, academic support, scholarships and fellowships and more.
Iowa State University plant scientists explore the balance between plant growth and drought response in latest publication
Iowa State University scientists are untangling the complex genetic mechanisms that control growth and stress response in plants. A recently published paper from the researchers identifies a group of proteins that may be of interest to plant breeders eager for crop varieties that will withstand dry conditions.
Parents are often thrust into the role of advocate when their child is diagnosed with a chronic illness, but see it as their responsibility to ensure their child gets the best care. An Iowa State University researcher examines the challenges parents face communicating with their child's medical team. Katherine Rafferty says if those lines of communication breakdown, the child’s quality of care is likely to suffer.
