  • Words matter. That’s what Eric Van Steenburg said to the 13 students who first met in December 2015 to discuss starting a chapter of the American Marketing Association at Montana State University.

    “I told them that there was a big difference between being a local club and being a chapter affiliated with a worldwide organization,” said Van Steenburg, assistant professor of marketing in the Jake Jabs College of Business and Entrepreneurship who helped start the AMA chapter at MSU and has served as its adviser since its inception. “And the difference is the amount of commitment, desire and professionalism required.”

    Now in its third year, the award-winning student chapter of the American Marketing Association at MSU has prepared students for their professional careers, helped local nonprofits with their marketing efforts and developed a strong networking community.

  • Morgan Craig, who is heading into her junior year at Montana State University, will spend four weeks at the University of Sussex in Brighton as part of The Fulbright Program 2019 U.K. Summer Institute. The term will run from June 24 until July 20.

    “I am excited most for meeting students from all over the world and getting a more diverse cultural experience,” Craig said about the hundreds of students from 30 countries she’ll attend classes with at the Sussex International Summer School. “It’s also going to be cool to experience the U.K. and its culture. I know it’s still an English-speaking country, but I think there are going to be a lot of really cool things I get to learn.”

  • A Montana State University researcher has joined scientific colleagues around the world in calling for greater attention to microbes when studying and addressing global climate change.

    Christine Foreman, associate professor in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, is one of 33 co-authors of the article "Scientists' warning to humanity: microorganisms and climate change" in the journal Nature Reviews Microbiology. The article was published online on June 18. The co-authors include leading microbiologists in Germany, Australia, the U.K., Canada and throughout the U.S.

    "Microbes are integral to the habitability of our planet," Foreman said. "A better understanding of global microbial diversity and activity is needed to appreciate future responses to our changing environment."

  • Researchers in Montana State University Norm Asbjornson College of Engineering are studying insects to improve drones.

    Mark Jankauski and Erick Johnson are partners on the project. Their research maps the physics of flapping flight in new ways including more efficient analytical models that could dramatically simplify the process of designing the wings. Their research is backed by a three-year grant of $370,000 from the National Science Foundation (NSF).

  • As summer approaches and the winter's snow begins to melt in the mountains, stream runoff across much of the western U.S. will be earlier and faster due to the presence of something ordinary and seemingly harmless: dust.

    Kevin Hammonds, director of the Subzero Research Lab and assistant professor in Montana State University Norm Asbjornson College of Engineering, and McKenzie Skiles from The University of Utah are using MSU's Subzero lab to take a close look at how the tiny particles affect snowmelt.

    "There are some processes we can't study in nature, so it's really helpful to be able to do experiments in the lab like this," said Skiles, who has studied the phenomenon for years at field sites in Utah and western Colorado. "There aren't many places in the world that have this kind of setup."

  • When making a prostate cancer diagnosis, pathologists ordinarily evaluate the images seen on a biopsy slide to identify cancerous growths. Montana State University doctoral student Anna Schenfisch hopes her research in mathematics and computer science may someday streamline that evaluation process.

    Schenfisch, a second-year Ph.D. student, wants to apply her explorations of computational geometry to the diagnosing method. Using mathematical algorithms that may—thanks to her exploration—soon be able to distinguish minute differences in the shapes seen on the biopsy slides, she may be able to reduce the subjectivity that comes with evaluating those shapes using the naked eye. That would make it easier to separate more severe cancer cases from less severe ones and allow doctors to fine-tune the most effective treatment programs for individual patients.

    Schenfisch’s research garnered her a prestigious honor in April when she was awarded a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship, which will help fund her work for the next three to five years. She will receive a $34,000 annual stipend and a $12,000 annual allowance for tuition and fees.

  • In 2014, the fossil bones of the Wankel T. rex (MOR 555) were sent from Montana State University's Museum of the Rockies (MOR) in Bozeman, Mont. to the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C.

    The Wankel T. rex was found on federal land near the Fort Peck Reservoir in 1988 by Kathy Wankel, a rancher from Angela, Montana. The Wankel T. rex is one of the largest and most complete skeletons of the dinosaur ever found.

    It was excavated in 1989-90 by field crews from the Museum of the Rockies, led by paleontologist Jack Horner. The full specimen was housed at the MOR where it was prepared in public view, studied extensively and displayed in the same position as it was uncovered.

    In its new pose devouring a triceratops, the renamed Nation’s T. rex will be the centerpiece of the David H. Koch Hall of Fossils - Deep Time, a 31,000-square-foot dinosaur and fossil hall slated to open on Saturday, June 8, at the Smithsonian.

    The Museum of the Rockies is hosting a celebration with cookies and lemonade in honor of the unveiling of the Nation's T. rex on June 8 from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. The MOR event is free and open to the public. https://www.montana.edu/calendar/events/30306

    Over the course of five years, The Washington Post's Lee Powell documented the Wankel T. rex's journey from the Museum of the Rockies in 2014 to the mounting of the dinosaur in its new pose in the Smithsonian.

    In May, the bees were released at a new wooden hive – painted gold in honor of MSU – on the university’s horticulture farm just west of campus.

    Jill Flores, MSU executive chef, said it’s uncertain how much honey the bees will produce at first. She anticipates the honey that is produced will be used in the special farm-to-campus themed dinners Culinary Services hosts on campus, such as the first dinner of the fall semester, which is a picnic on the Romney Oval.
