Graduate Research

All graduate students are expected to conduct independent research, develop a research methodology, carry out scientific data collection and analyze the results. Students will then prepare a write-up of the findings, and present the findings to professors and peers.

Recent CALS grant-funded research topics
Biofuels from food processing wasteStudy the process by which biomass, such as potato processing waste, is converted into valuable fuels and chemicals.

Cloning and other reproduction methodsExperiment with high-tech reproduction processes at the Northwest Equine Reproduction Laboratory (NERL).

Feeding young children in group settingsObserve snack and meal times at a day care center for a study on how children interact.

Hazardous waste remediationAnalyze how microbes break apart hazardous compounds in soil and water.

Balancing work and familyAdminister surveys on how single parents fulfill their many responsibilities.

Use of water resourcesUse satellite-based technologies to map out water consumption patterns for irrigation, which can be used in court to support water rights mitigation and litigation to the Idaho Department of Water Resources.

Immune responses in human cellsInvestigate how viruses, like those that cause the common cold, fool the immune system. Study how manipulating human cells changes immune responses.

Regional Approaches to Climate Change (REACCH)Improve the long-term profitability of the cereal production systems of northern Idaho, north central Oregon, and eastern Washington under ongoing and projected climate change, while contributing to climate change mitigation by reducing emissions of greenhouse gasses.
