Through his research on anaerobic organisms that grow in the human intestine, Miami University Associate Professor of Microbiology Dr. D.J. Ferguson is working toward a cure for heart disease. Ferguson’s widely published research explores how these organisms break down common compounds during the digestive process. Some of the organisms convert these compounds into other compounds that lead to atherosclerosis, a leading cause of heart disease, while other gut organisms do not.
As a small institution, Oberlin College has much to gain from sharing. Jason Belitsky, professor of chemistry, knows this well, as he has shared both resources and research with his students. Belitsky imparts on his students the value of OhioLINK for journal articles and books.

Libby recently discussed with OhioLINK her plans for after graduation, her involvement in clubs at Ohio State and the reason you will never hear her sing in front of a crowd.
John Brogan is working to find, and blur, the border between art and science. A senior at Case Western Reserve University, Brogan has already become a seasoned traveler, authored two books and partnered with the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo for a research project. Brogan is studying cognitive science, which he describes as a blend of psychology and philosophy, taken within the lens of a hard science.
Brooklyn Ludlow is one of two student interns currently working at OhioLINK. As a third-year student at The Ohio State University, she has two rare and vastly different passions: Brooklyn is earning a major in jazz composition and a minor in computer information sciences.
