University of Oregon

Nestled in the lush Willamette Valley, with an easy drive to both the Pacific Ocean and the Cascade Mountains, the University of Oregon is renowned for its research prowess and commitment to teaching.

We exist to provide Oregonians and their peers from around the world access to an excellent education. We challenge our students to question critically, think logically, communicate clearly, act creatively, and live ethically. We serve the people of Oregon, our nation, and the world through research, teaching, and outreach that benefits humanity, drives innovation, strengthens the economy, and transforms lives.

New research from the lab of UO paleontologist Edward Davis in the Department of Earth Sciences shows that satellite data can reveal large individual fossils from the air, allowing field researchers to embark on more targeted searches on the ground.
Gut microbes encourage specialized cells to prune back extra connections in brain circuits that control social behavior, new UO research in zebrafish shows.
A new gene editing technique developed by UO researchers compresses what previously would have been years of work into just a few days, allowing researchers to test the effects of thousands of genetic mutations in one fell swoop.
A UO graduate student discovered a protein made by gut bacteria that triggered insulin-producing cells to replicate. The protein was an important clue to the biological basis for Type 1 diabetes.
Using newly developed and culturally informed methods, a UO team was able to more than triple the number of Latinx people getting tested for COVID-19, according to a recently published research paper.
Climate change might be behind an unusual disease outbreak among Antarctic fish, according to University of Oregon experts.
A virtual reality simulation designed by a UO professor could help spur people to environmental action.
New research from UO earth scientists reveals how the dynamics of the lava lake, along with deformation of ground around it, encode the signature of migrating volcanic gases and changing magma temperature in the shallow plumbing system of the volcano.
Vulnerable teens who lose a pregnancy are at increased suicide risk, new research from UO’s Prevention Science Institute shows.
In humans, mutations in the EGR1 gene or 'social' gene have been linked to mental health conditions like schizophrenia and depression . A mutation in that gene snuffs out this social behavior in zebrafish, researchers at UO find.
