Big Ten Network features college research

Dr. Cheryl London highlights cancer research in dogs and its relevance to children

WOSU-TV and the Big Ten Network are hosting O-H-I-O, Ohio State University programs, highlighting issues in and around Ohio. Tuesday, June 29, 2010 will be the debut airing of O-H-I-O 106.

This episode of O-H-I-O starts billions of years ago -- or at least the clues to life's origins do -- as explored by Ohio State University physicists working at the Large Hadron Collider at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN). Next, visit one of the most unique laboratories in America as nutritional and diet experts from Ohio State set up shop inside step inside COSI, one of the nation's premier children's science museums. Then, learn what dogs can teach us when it comes to bone cancer in children through the work of a team of cancer experts, including Dr. Cheryl London with the Oncology/Hematology Service at the Veterinary Medical Center at Ohio State. And last, travel to Safford, Arizona, for a look at the Large Binocular Telescope where Ohio State University astronomers and researchers are getting an unprecedented look at gamma bursts, galaxies, black holes, and supernovas.
