Hot off the presses: K-State making news with media outlets

By News and Communications Services

When it comes to spotlighting Kansas State University's research and experts in mainstream media, the News and Communications Services team proves it has a nose for news.

Scientific American and Science Daily put stock in the findings of a plant genetics project led by Geoff Morris, assistant professor of agronomy. Both stories sprouted from a K-State news release.  

Science Daily gobbled up food safety specialist Londa Nwadike's explanation of what the terms "natural," "organic" and "local" mean on food labels, which was the subject of a K-State news release.

• A K-State news release and video package about traveling with pets made its way across U.S. media outlets. The story with Susan Nelson, clinical associate professor in clinical sciences at the university's Veterinary Health Center, aired on Wake Up Montana as well as multiple Montana and Arkansas news stations. The story also appeared in the Kansas City infoZine.

• The Topeka Capital-Journal liked the look of the "skins" K-State students in interior architecture & product design are creating for those with prosthetic limbs. The skins were in because of a K-State news release.

• The National Science Foundation found K-State's study on the apple maggot fly genome to be in-"gene"-ious and featured the K-State's news release about the study's findings on its homepage. The research was conducted by Greg Ragland, assistant professor of entomology.
