New UC Riverside research shows soybean oil not only leads to obesity and diabetes, but could also affect neurological conditions like autism, Alzheimer’s disease, anxiety, and depression.
New research from UC Riverside identifies a protein that controls plant growth — good news for an era in which crops can get crushed by climate change.
UC Riverside research is supported by a four-year grant worth more than $1.2 million
UC Riverside research used internet data mining to monitor health effects reported by electronic cigarette users over time
UC Riverside scientists have developed a new method for detecting oxygen in exoplanet atmospheres that may accelerate the search for life.
Nitrogen pollution, largely from automobile exhaust, can reduce drinking water quality and make air difficult to breathe. Thanks to a $1.1 million grant, UC Riverside scientists will soon understand how much nitrogen dry ecosystems in Southern California can absorb before they produce negative effects.

The licensed technology is a tipping point for emerging lifesaving therapies
The world’s most influential scientific researchers in 2019 include 10 current UCR scholars. In its annual list, Clarivate Analytics names the most highly cited researchers — those whose work was most often referenced by other scientific research papers for the preceding decade in 21 fields across the sciences and social...
Image processing algorithms on satellite images show how sea ice drift affects freshwater flux in Arctic Ocean currents
A new understanding of a fault that caused a deadly 7.8 magnitude earthquake can help scientists better predict where and when the next big one will hit. For decades, scientists have debated the structure of the Main Himalayan Thrust — the fault responsible for a 2015 earthquake that killed nearly...
UC Riverside-led study could lead to the development of drugs that target liver and other cancers
Contrary to previous thought, a gigantic planet in wild orbit does not preclude the presence of an Earth-like planet in the same solar system – or life on that planet. What’s more, the view from that Earth-like planet as its giant neighbor moves past would be unlike anything it is...
The shape and architecture of collagen and elastin fibers can improve our understanding of lung diseases, including the one associated with vaping
