Jessica taste tested the first Artemys Burger prototype after growing muscle cells and combining it into a plant-based burger. Among those receiving their doctoral degrees from Kent State this fall is Jessica Krieger. She will receive her Ph.D. in biomedical sciences – cellular and molecular biology. Through her dissertation work, she wanted to learn the basics of how to grow meat in a lab. “I’ve learned so much from the Kent State...

The Kent State University College of Arts and Sciences congratulates James A. Tyner, Ph.D., professor in the Department of Geography and Director of the Institute for the Study and Prevention of Violence, who is a 2021 recipient of ‘Distinguished Scholarship Honors’ from the American Association of Geographers...

Michelle Bebber sprays an air freshener in a bathroom. It’s not a Nobel Prize, but it’ll make you laugh, and then think. It’s the Ig Nobel Prize, and the College of Arts and Sciences at Kent State University would like to congratulate the 2020 Ig Nobel Prize winners for Materials Science: a team of researchers in its Department of Anthropology. In 2019, the team published...

Eunice Foote Most would agree that the main goal of science is to work toward better understanding by sorting out competing hypotheses to find the underlying theories. So, isn’t it ironic that the history of science is sometimes quite messy, for a variety of reasons? When you add decades of systemic oppression of women scientists to the mix, getting at the...

A student uses a computer. Women occupy just 28% of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) jobs and account for only 17% of computer science majors and 21% of engineering majors. A group of researchers from Kent State University and North Carolina State University want to know what can be done to broaden participation in STEM fields and improve the...

MP Armstrong at PRIDE! NYC Meet Moira Armstrong. Moira is a student at Kent State University pursuing a double major in English and History, with minors in Italian Studies, Ancient Medieval Renaissance Studies, and LGBTQ Studies. Moira shares their story of the time they have spent at Kent State thus far and the importance of remaining hopeful. The narrative below was...

Inner vertex components of the STAR detector at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (righthand view) allow scientists to trace tracks from triplets of decay particles picked up in the detector Nuclear physics researchers at Kent State University and all over the world have been searching for violations of the fundamental symmetries in the universe for decades. Much like the “Big Bang” (approximately 13.8 billion years ago), but on a tiny scale, they briefly recreate the particle interactions that likely existed microseconds into the...
