Eric Michel, Ph.D. student working in the field of Forest and Wildlife Research
Mississippi State's Forest and Wildlife Research Center faculty and students work closely with the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks to protect the recreational harvest of white-tailed deer, which has a billion dollar annual impact to the Magnolia State’s economy.

Dr. Andy Shores hopes to help veterinarians make better patient recommendations with a smartphone application.
Shores, chief of neurosurgery and neurology at the Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine, developed the Small Animal Coma Scale app to give veterinarians an easier way to assess the severity of a traumatic brain injury in dogs and cats while capturing statistical data.
MSU Graduate Student, Curtis Virges - Connecting Cowbells and Nobels
As if playing defensive tackle for the first-ranked Mississippi State University Bulldogs wasn’t difficult enough, Curtis Virges is also tackling a rigorous academic schedule by pursuing a Master of Science degree in Chemistry. mage.
Virges’ research involves the development of next-generation, organometallic molecules that are materials for Organic Light-Emitting Diodes (OLEDs), which are the most energy-efficient form of lighting (from simple bulbs to cell phone or laptop displays and flat screen TVs), more so even than the LEDs for which the Nobel Prize (physics) was awarded to three scientists earlier this year. Curtis’ advisor is Dr. Keith Hollis, Associate Professor in the Chemistry Department. Read More
BCoE Partners with Entergy Corporation
Jeff Hsu and Quintin Grice, graduate students and members of the team from the Bagley College Engineering helped develop computer software that saves time, money and energy for a national utility company.
BCoE partners with Entergy to develop new software. As part of its university research program, Entergy Corp. joined a team of Mississippi State graduate students and researchers to develop the Relay Settings Automation (RSA) program. With this software, a process that takes four to six hours to complete manually can be performed electronically in less than a minute.
Before the creation of RSA, engineers would run hundreds of short circuit simulations and manually record the results, an error-prone process. Then, they would choose the best settings to solve the problems when they occurred.
