ONU students, former students and faculty mentors collaborate

For article in Hormones and Behavior publication

Current and former Ohio Northern University students, in collaboration with faculty mentors, have been involved in a high-impact learning experience that resulted in the publication of an article in a prestigious research journal. 

The article, “A predator-based psychosocial stress animal model of PTSD in females: Influence of estrous phase and ovarian hormones,” was published in the September 2019 edition of Hormones and Behavior.

The project was supported by a $411,453 research grant from the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute that was awarded to ONU Associate Professor of Psychology Phillip Zoladz, Ph.D., and former ONU pharmacy faculty member Boyd Rorabaugh.

Kai Kawaguchi, ONU student from Japan, snags a home run ball in Detroit-Minnesota game

FROM THE ONU WEBSITE - When international student Kai Kawaguchi first learned he was going to study in the United States, he knew he had to make it to a Major League Baseball game.

But he never dreamed he would snag a home run ball with his own two hands.

Thanks to Ohio Northern – and a little bit of luck – that’s precisely what happened.

Expanding outreach services to pediatric population

ONU HealthWise receives Buckeye Health Plan grant

The Ohio Northern University HealthWise program recently received a $8,500 grant from the Buckeye Health Plan that will expand the program’s services, specifically targeting the area’s pediatric population.

This grant will assist ONU HealthWise in its efforts to expand its offerings from the traditional adult audience to the pediatric population, largely through health screenings and educational programs.

This project provides a focus on health from two different directions. The first is prevention, which will be executed by educating school children about healthy lifestyles, healthy choices and a life predicated on wellness.
