The Research Project, Week Thirty Seven, Oregon

This week we are re-tooling The Research Project. Instead of giving a synopsis of one research project from a university in the scheduled state, our new approach is to list several research headlines at one of the major universities of the scheduled state along with a link to more info about each project. The University of Oregon, located in Eugene, Oregon will be the first university featured in this new approach. The research going on at OU includes everything from ants to obesity prevention to charitable giving.
