The festival will highlight insects’ roles in maintaining healthy ecosystems, enhancing crop productivity, pollinating plants, affecting urban environments and spreading disease.
Research from the UA’s Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research reveals a "snow drought" that has implications for water use and wildfires. "Our study points to the extreme character of the 2014-15 winter," says the UA's Valerie Trouet.
The iconic structure, with its slot canyon design, nearly 300 artistic inlays and Sonoran Desert-inspired décor, is a representation of the UA's commitment to promote interdisciplinary research.
Representatives from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences look at coming regulations with a "One Health" approach that considers humans, animals and the environment.
Codelucida, a company housed at the Arizona Center for Innovation within the UA Tech Park, is developing a disruptive error-correction technology for next-generation solid-state drives.
A UA professor is creating a platform for scientists to store and manage their data more easily. And share it faster.
A new device, created by a collaborative team of UA engineers and scientists, has commercial potential and may save precious time in the hospital emergency room of the future.
The much-anticipated building, which has its grand opening on Thursday, brings together desert and design. "It's not enough for our buildings and spaces to just facilitate — they must inspire," says Peter Dourlein, UA assistant vice president of Planning, Design and Construction.
Bonnie Hurwitz and her collaborators decided to create a virtual community network known as VERVE Net, or the Viral Ecology Research Virtual Exchange Network.
UA geoscientists are the first to determine how China’s Loess Plateau, a dust deposit the size of the state of Arizona, came to be. They say wind erosion is key in shaping landscapes.
The FlexTech Alliance, of which the UA is a part, has been awarded $75 million to further flexible hybrid electronics research, which has the potential to reshape multiple industries from health care to engineering.
With more than $1.7 million in grant funding, an international UA-led partnership is working to develop an aquaculture industry to push Myanmar back into the global economy.
Endowing a machine with the ability to explore on its own instead of merely executing pre-programmed commands is the vision of UA engineering professor Wolfgang Fink.
