STARKVILLE, Miss.--A research team at Mississippi State's College of Veterinary Medicine is working to better understand cancer in dogs, and the work also could advance knowledge of human cancer.
Their investigation began with only a tiny blood platelet, but quickly they discovered opportunities for growth and expanding the breadth of the research. Read More
MSU Electrical Engineering PhD student, Lee Hathcock, leads a group of researchers with NOAA
An unmanned aerial vehicle is prepared for launch on Thursday [Dec. 18] in St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana. Researchers with Mississippi State and NOAA are mapping sections of the Pearl River with the UAV to better understand where and how much water flows through the area and the impact it can have on local communities when hurricanes and other tropical weather systems develop.

A leading industry trade group spent two days in Mississippi last week, and a highlight of the visit was a survey mission led by Mississippi State researchers and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration scientists.
"We were very pleased to help host the AUVSI team in our state," said David Shaw, the university's vice president for research and economic development.
Ancient finds by the archaeological team from Mississippi State University could prove biblical kings David and Solomon were real
Top: Jimmy Hardin, an associate professor in the Mississippi State University Department of Anthropology and Middle Eastern Cultures, co-directed a team in Israel that found archaeological evidence from the time of kings David and Solomon. In his MSU laboratory, Hardin examines an Egyptian figurine dating to the 10th or 11th century BC. A Mississippi State University team found this bulla, or ancient clay seal, on a dig site in southern Israel last summer. It offers evidence of government activity in the 10th century B.C., a time when many scholars said a kingdom could not exist in the region.
Kings David and Solomon may be memorable figures from the Bible, but plenty of scholars think they were mere figments of somebody's imagination. One big reason is that the archaeological record doesn't mesh: These two supposedly ruled in the 10th-century BC, but where's the physical evidence? Now, however, an archaeological team from Mississippi State University has dug up six clay seals in Israel that support the idea of such reigns.
