The University of Oregon's football team gained fame in recent years for the variety of its uniforms and accessories (and for winning a bunch of games). 

Another part of the university is involved in designing products athletes use. 

That is the recently opened Sports Product Design Program at the Portland campus of UO. 

This month's installment of "cUriOus: Research Meets Radio" focuses on the PD program and its specialization in sports equipment for athletes with disabilities.  Program boss Susan Sokolowski joins us.
