Welcome to Pocket Science: a glimpse at recent research from Husker scientists and engineers. For those who want to quickly learn the “What,” “So what” and “Now what” of Husker research.

University Communication is introducing whiteboard-style animations to its Pocket Science series.

The first outlines research from Clay Cressler of biological sciences, who helped develop a model that may solve a mystery: Why do parasitic worms persist in some people but not others?
