Research conducted by ISU Professor Meyers results in finding a safer alternative for collegiate women’s soccer fields
Idaho State University Associate Professor of Sports Science and Physical Education Michael Meyers released research findings that concluded there is a significantly lower injury rate for collegiate women’s soccer athletes playing on FieldTurf versus natural grass.

Amending the Tree of Life: Article in prestigious journal by ISU Professor Kelchner advocates for shift in evolutionary and genomic research
Charles Darwin famously included only one illustration in his book "On the Origin of Species" published in 1859. It was a diagram of how species originate through time in a manner that, on paper, resembles a family tree. Since then, geneticists have been piecing together relationships among life's many creatures by DNA comparison to produce what is called the Tree of Life: a tree-shaped diagram of how everything on Earth is related. This type of diagram has dominated the perspective of evolutionary biologists for more than 150 years. (more…)
