Research Highlights

Delve into remarkable advances in coastal and energy research, historic achievements in research activity and patenting, and just a little bit of mystery.

Wound healing technology made from trees and new patents: One for gummy ball baits to put the wild pig pandemic on snooze, and one for water-powered lights to make it easier to grow algae, which can be used to make biofuels and biodegradable plastics.

We share stories on recent advances in cancer research, spectacularly colorful yet secretive marsh birds, and how it matters more in the workplace how big you feel versus how big you are—and more.
