A new UC Riverside study shows that a type of insecticide made for commercial plant nurseries is harmful to a typical bee even when applied well below the label rate.
A team of scientists led by UC Riverside has devised a more accurate way to predict the effects of climate change on plants and animals — and whether some will survive at all.
UC Riverside experts share their thoughts
When two similar atomic layers with mismatching lattice constants — the constant distance between a layer’s unit cells — and/or orientation are stacked together, the resulting bilayer can exhibit a moiré pattern and form a moiré superlattice. Moiré patterns are interference patterns that typically arise when one object with a...
UC Riverside scientists will use a $2 million NIH grant to study the brain’s locus coeruleus
UC Riverside dark matter research program targets assumptions about particle physics
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...
When he joined the U.S. Navy in 2010, Mychal Valle didn’t think he would ever return to school. After all, he got to work on new radar technologies in the navy and got recognized for writing technical manuals. But by the time he left the navy in 2016, Valle’s service...
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-led work could lead to better computer technologies
A new UC Riverside study finds a naturally occurring “earthquake gate” that decides which earthquakes are allowed to grow into magnitude 8 or greater.
UC Riverside-led team developed simple, rapid method to assess contaminants in household fabrics
