WSU researchers say BPA alternatives used in plastics may pose health risks
Twenty years ago, a Washington State University researcher discovered genetic abnormalities in laboratory mice after they were accidentally exposed to the chemical bisphenol A, known as BPA, commonly found in plastic products.
WSU researchers see new plastics causing reproductive woes of old plastics
Washington State University researchers have found that plastic products meant to replace the chemical bisphenol A, or BPA, are also causing genetic abnormalities in mice.
SMB Staff Honored by College of Veterinary Medicine
Two SMB staff members were honored for excellence during the 2018 annual College of Veterinary Medicine picnic.
Better understanding melanoma, WSU cancer researchers hone in on UV damage mutation sites
Washington State University Molecular Bioscience researchers have developed a way to identify where in the human genome ultra-violet damage or damage from sunlight concentrates to cause melanoma.
Researchers named to Washington State Academy of Sciences
Four Washington State University faculty have been elected to the Washington State Academy of Sciences and two others were chosen to serve on the academy’s leadership board in 2018.
STING: From Mammals to Insects
STING is a key mediator of mammalian innate immunity in response to pathogens. In this issue of Cell Host & Microbe and the June 19th issue of Cell Reports, Liu et al. (2018) and Martin et al. (2018) reveal that Drosophila STING is required for antiviral and antibacterial defenses, respectively.

Researchers map DNA damage links to onset of skin cancer
A critical link in mapping recurrent mutations of melanoma — the most serious form of skin cancer in humans — has been discovered by researchers at Washington State University School of Molecular Biosciences, in collaboration with researchers at Georgia State University.
WSU researchers find critical link for melanoma, most deadly skin cancer
A critical step in understanding melanoma — the deadliest form of skin cancer — has been taken by researchers at Washington State University's School of Molecular Biosciences.
Researchers See Human Immune Response in the Fruit Fly
Washington State University researchers have seen how both humans and fruit flies deploy a protein that plays a critical role in their immune responses to invading bacteria.
WSU researchers establish new tool to study Cryptosporidium in healthy tissues
Washington State University researchers have developed a new approach for studying Cryptosporidium, a waterborne gastrointestinal parasite now recognized as one of the leading causes of potentially life-threatening diarrheal disease in young children worldwide.
