Simple process transforms PET plastic into a nanomaterial for energy storage
UC Riverside researchers used a powerful machine-learning approach to screen millions of chemicals to find suitable candidates
Scientists are closer to gaining the upper hand on Huanglongbing, a disease that has wiped out citrus orchards across the globe. New models of the bacterium linked to the disease reveal control methods that were previously unavailable.
Research could lead to the design of new and better treatments to fight disease
The grant is the campus’ first successful bid for an NSF Engineering Research Center
Following a decade-long effort, scientists have mapped out the genome of an aphid-like pest capable of decimating vineyards. In so doing, they have discovered how it spreads — and potentially how to stop it. The research team’s work on the genome was published this past week in a BMC Biology...
UC Riverside computer scientists receive grant to improve security of visual artificial intelligence
Amit Roy-Chowdhury leads project that will develop robust context-aware machine vision for computers
A new hemp pulping method that converts 100% of the plant to useful components moves toward commercialization
UC Riverside-led study identifies mechanism that prevents death of neurons
Most reptiles move slower when temperatures drop, but venomous rattlesnakes appear to be an exception. The cold affects them, but not as much as scientists expected.
It’s likely that billions of people are unaware they have been infected with parasitic worms. A UC Riverside scientist has won $1.8 million to try and understand why. The National Institutes of Health granted an Outstanding Investigator Award to Adler Dillman, an assistant professor of parasitology, so he can shed...
CE-CERT will track greenhouse gas reductions, indicators of public health, and economic impacts from the $31 million dollar project
How does memory training lead to cognitive benefits? Aaron Seitz, director of the Brain Game Center for mental fitness and well-being at the University of California, Riverside, has wrestled with this question for several years. Now he and Susanne Jaeggi, an associate professor at the UC Irvine School of Education...
Blood-feeding livestock mites can be detected with wearable sensor technology nicknamed “Fitbits for chickens.” To help farmers detect mite infestations, a team of entomologists, computer scientists, and biologists led by UC Riverside entomologist Amy Murillo has created a new insect detection system. The team’s work is detailed in the journal...
UC Riverside mouse study has implications for treating neuropsychiatric diseases such as ADHD and schizophrenia
UC Riverside-led study highlights critical role working memory capacity plays in social distancing compliance during early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic
The National Science Foundation, or NSF, has renewed funding for a UC Riverside laboratory solving big environmental and agricultural challenges with very small chemical particles called nanomaterials.
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...
