Citrus greening has made its way to Riverside and is spreading. The L.A. Times features UCR researchers fighting to protect the 22-acre Citrus Variety Collection
Study co-led by UC Riverside scientist could help develop strategies to combat the disease
A new UC Riverside study concludes the longer your commute, the more you're exposed to a chemical flame retardant that is a known carcinogen, phased out of furniture use because it required a Proposition 65 warning label in California.
XMM-2599 lived fast and died young, says UC Riverside-led international team
Excess selenium from fertilizers and other natural sources can create air pollution that could lead to lung cancer, asthma, and Type 2 diabetes, according to new UC Riverside research.
New research from UC Riverside shows, contrary to previous scientific belief, a hormone required for sexual maturity in insects cannot travel across the blood-brain barrier unless aided by a transporter protein. The finding may soon allow scientists to prevent disease-spreading mosquitoes from maturing, or to boost reproduction in beneficial bumblebees.
UC Riverside-led research has applications in ultrafast and spin-based nanoscale devices
New technology can find the safest way to store and dispose of reactive chemicals
UC Riverside is one the universities making it easier for new discoveries to benefit the public
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 scientists have developed a new method for detecting oxygen in exoplanet atmospheres that may accelerate the search for life.
UC Riverside research used internet data mining to monitor health effects reported by electronic cigarette users over time
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. “Levels of nitrogen pollution in Riverside’s...
