Researchers such as the UA's Avery Russell know all about nectar-foraging behavior in bees, but little research has been done to date on pollen foraging. With UANews video.
A team of researchers, including several from the UA, will test alternative sources of water for agriculture with $10 million in grant funding from the USDA over four years.
Yumanity Therapeutics has licensed a UA-invented prodrug and its analogues to develop treatments for neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and ALS.
Tech Launch Arizona has hired three seasoned technology entrepreneurs to advise its teams and the UA research community, helping to develop the pathways for successful ventures.
The annual showcase of research by undergraduate and graduate students in the UA School of Earth and Environmental Sciences will be held this week.
Pluto’s “heart” may be cold as ice, but it’s in the right place, according to two UA scientists who believe the dwarf planet’s iconic region of frozen ice may have shifted location.
Exactly 10 years ago, the UA-built HiRISE camera began taking the most detailed images of the Martian surface to date. Since then, the camera has become the world's watchful eye on the Red Planet.
Intense volcanic activity on the moon's Earth-facing side billions of years ago caused its axis to tilt, a team of researchers has discovered. Two UA planetary scientists helped unlock the secret.
At the UA's Biosphere 2, scientists are observing each step of landscape evolution, from the purely mineral and abiotic to living landscapes that will support microbial communities and vascular plants. With UANews video.
By studying the brain of the zebra finch, UA assistant professor Julie Miller hopes to expand our knowledge of the speech problems associated with Parkinson's disease.
Ranked by the National Science Foundation as one of the nation's top 20 public research universities, the UA expects to reach three-quarters of a billion dollars in research expenditures in the next decade.
Code that supports computer systems research does not always accompany its publication, which can keep others from repeating the experiment.
A committee of climate experts that includes the UA's Kathy Jacobs says that it's possible to attribute changes in the frequency or severity of some extreme weather events to climate change.
With space becoming "increasingly congested and contested," a new UA research initiative in space object behavioral sciences is described as vital to national interests.
A UA-led study, the first to examine the instrumental historical record, discovers that temperature has played a larger role in streamflow and in exacerbating drought.
Faculty members Matthias Morzfeld and Eduardo Rozo are among 126 to be awarded the fellowships, which provide $55,000 to distinguished early-career researchers.
A UA-led study is the first to use shipwrecks as a proxy for hurricane activity. Learning more about how hurricanes correlated with climate for the past 500 years may lead to better regional predictions of hurricanes.
The battle is significant because the government is out to establish a legal precedent, according to law professor Derek Bambauer and information professor Yotam Shmargad.
UA planetary scientist Isamu Matsuyama has helped unravel dramatic events in the early history of Mars. Everything changed when massive volcanic eruptions initiated changes that eventually caused the entire planet to tip over.
Studies from the UA Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research contradict previous research that suggested when the eastern Mediterranean was dry, the western Mediterranean was wet — and vice versa.
