From the bench to the bedside

Longer, better lives for patients. That's the goal of a new partnership between Ohio State and the Cleveland Clinic designed to get medical breakthroughs in doctors' and patients' hands faster.

Among other things, it will mean quicker treatments for cancer--already one of the specialties in which Ohio State's Wexner Medical Center is ranked among the nation's best.

Find out why President Gee says the partnership "holds enormous potential for Ohio to reshape the future of medicine"--while attracting good jobs to the Buckeye state.

Ray of light


It was a moment five years in the making: Ohio State�s new SCARLET laser fired up for the first time, shooting out a cigar-sized bolt of more than 400 trillion watts. Now, an exciting chapter of research can begin using this powerful tool.

Find out how SCARLET could lead to diverse discoveries in national security, cancer therapy, and fusion energy.
