Despite the Pandemic, Reed Students Learn Together

COVID-19 has posed massive challenges to college campuses around the world, but we're proud of the way Reed has rallied to hold in-person classes, and wowed by the Reed students who are finding creative ways to learn--and grow--together.

GRAIN OF TRUTH. In 2006, biologist Pam Ronald ’82 isolated a gene called sub1 from an obscure variety of rice that was seldom grown because of its poor yield. But it had one outstanding quality—it could survive flooding. By transferring the sub1 gene into other varieties, Pam created strains of rice that were tasty, productive, and could tolerate flooding—a huge benefit to millions of farmers in flood-prone parts of the world.

Back in the 80s, researchers knew that clot-busting drugs had huge potential to save the lives of heart-attack victims. The problem was that the drugs had to be given immediately—within an hour. But doctors were taking too long to make the decision because they didn’t have the right data at their fingertips. So cardiologist Harry Selker ’74 had a brainwave. Why not build the data into the EKG machine that took the readings and crunch the numbers on the spot? The idea saved countless lives and paved the way for the whole field of predictive medicine. Here’s a shout-out to the Reed students who’ve signed up for the https://inventathon.org/ a health care hackathon at OHSU.

LOOK AGAIN. In 1977, Pfizer chemist Ken Koe ’45 began investigating an obscure family of compounds known as tametralines. Other researchers had tossed them aside but Ken thought they were worth a closer look. After years of painstaking work, he discovered the game-changing antidepressant known as Zoloft. Ken is part of a proud Reed tradition of scientific creativity. Here’s a shout-out to the Reed students and alumni who’ve signed up for the Invent-a-thon, https://inventathon.org/ a virtual health care hackathon at OHSU starting October 23. Reed is joining forces with OHSU, MIT, and more than a dozen other partners to support this event.

The Paradox of Wildfire

The West is burning. Wildfires are an age-old fact of life in the vast terrain west of the Rockies, but their recent intensity is the result of two forces, according to Prof. Aaron Ramirez—climate change and misguided policy. Check out this feature on his work from 2019.
