UC Riverside dark matter research program targets assumptions about particle physics
The five-year survival rate for people on dialysis is under 50 percent. University of California researchers are hoping to improve that prognosis. When kidneys fail, the body is unable to rid itself of toxins, waste products, and excessive fluids. Dialysis or transplants are the only treatments for the 786,000 people...
Viji Santhakumar, an associate professor of molecular, cell and systems biology at the University of California, Riverside, has received funding from the National Institute of Neurological Disaster and Stroke of the National Institutes of Health to further pursue research on moderate concussive brain injury, which results from car accidents or...

Grants support continued development of tomatoes for vertical farming
Repeated tests showed a similar amount of drug release per activation, confirming robust control of release rate
University of California scientists have discovered genetic data that will help food crops like tomatoes and rice survive longer, more intense periods of drought on our warming planet.

Electromagnetic field directs shape formed by gas phase metal molecules
Alexander Balandin’s Vannevar Bush Faculty Fellowship will help advance quantum materials for electronics and energy conversion
Small changes in the structure of DNA have been implicated in breast cancer and other diseases, but they’ve been extremely difficult to detect — until now. Using what they describe as a “chemical nose,” UC Riverside chemists are able to “smell” when bits of DNA are folded in unusual ways.
US Army grant to UC Riverside will support the study of the science of light and its interaction with matter
UC Riverside ecologists are leading a $1 million plant protection project that will help Southern California’s tribal nations adapt to climate change.
UC Riverside-led work could lead to better computer technologies
Loralee Larios, an assistant professor and plant ecologist, is the only candidate from UCR to be selected for the Ecological Society of America’s 2021 Early Career Fellowship. According to the society’s webpage, Larios was selected for “innovative research in plant community ecology, emerging leadership in restoration ecology, exceptional outreach and...
As many gather for Earth Day 2021, A UC Riverside ecologist urges caution toward solar geoengineering, an increasingly popular solution to the climate crisis.
