UC Riverside scientists have found the first substance capable of controlling Citrus Greening Disease, which has devastated citrus farms in Florida and also threatens California. The new treatment effectively kills the bacterium causing the disease with a naturally occurring molecule found in wild citrus relatives. This molecule, an antimicrobial peptide...
Many parts of the world are in the midst of a deadly pandemic of cholera, an extreme form of watery diarrhea. UC Riverside scientists have discovered specific gut bacteria make some people resistant to it — a finding that could save lives.
The discovery gives scientists a front seat to the earliest stages of planet formation
Eurosemillas will test some of UCR’s avocado scion and advanced rootstock selections on other continents
Just call him Professor Guinea Pig. Adapting to remote learning this quarter, Professor Rich Cardullo is performing all the experiments for his human physiology laboratory course — on himself. Picture a video in which your professor puts electrodes on his thighs and has a teaching assistant hit his knees, so...
In the midst of the pandemic, faculty mentored research projects are being supported through CAMP.

Vegetation changes can outweigh climate change in rangeland water budgets
The Paleo-Agulhas Plain had diverse, verdant ecosystems and abundant game
An international research team led by scientists at the University of California, Riverside, has observed light emission from a new type of transition between electronic valleys, known as intervalley transmissions. The research provides a new way to read out valley information, potentially leading to new types of devices. Current semiconductor...

Physicists’ discovery could lead to a new family of materials for robust qubits in quantum computing
The daily 1 p.m. Zoom call has become a lifeline for a team of UC Riverside students and their project scientist. Sometimes the call focuses on data, driven by the greenhouse emissions research they are conducting for Francesca Hopkins, assistant professor of climate change and sustainability. Other times, they talk...
