Astronomers have caught the fleeting explosion of a Type Ia supernova in detail. Understanding how they form could have implications for dark energy measurements.
With the solar eclipse, junior Adriana Mitchell will be "passing the torch of collecting data all across the continent," poised to find answers to long-elusive questions about the sun.
Since its debut in fall 2015, UA Online has seen 280 percent year-to-year growth and is on target to meet or exceed Arizona Board of Regents goals. Science classes such as Roger Miesfeld's biochemistry series have contributed to the increase.
Astronomers have seen atmospheric bands and waves, reminiscent of those in gas giants such as Neptune, in brown dwarfs — strange worlds that are not quite planets and not quite stars.
With a grant from the W.M. Keck Foundation, geoscientists are gearing up for a study with implications for energy and mineral resources and managing energy waste products.
Thanks to an NSF grant, thought leaders will be invited to campus in November to examine the critical challenges and opportunities regarding undergraduate STEM education.
The interdisciplinary project, called cyberSW and led by the UA's Barbara Mills and Sudha Ram, was awarded a $1.7 million grant from the National Science Foundation. The project was one of four proposals chosen by an NSF program that supports new types of data-intensive research.
A cardiologist, a physiologist and a psychologist walk into a coffee shop and ... it's not a joke. Rather, it's collaboration at its best, and they're discussing whether a naturally occurring compound, known as angiotensin 1-7, can relieve cognitive deficits after heart bypass. With UANews video.
A non-skin-penetrating sunscreen has been licensed to MexiAloe from the work of professor Douglas Loy and student Stephanie Tolbert, who developed the formulation.
According to the UA's Todd Vanderah, the chemical compounds — unlike opioids — help slow bone loss while also slowing the proliferation of metastatic breast cancer.
Faculty members from the UA College of Agriculture and Life Sciences will discuss issues surrounding the use of genetically modified organisms at a Tucson screening.
Electromagnetic radiation streaming from the Crab Nebula has its origin in one population of electrons and must be produced differently than scientists have thought. UA scientist Federico Fraschetti calls it "a significant advance in our understanding of particle acceleration at shock waves."
Produced in collaboration with NASA and NOVA, the show will take audiences on a simulated flight to a super-massive black hole that lurks at the center of the Milky Way.
Many of the honorees at the upcoming AZBio Awards have deep connections to the University and have brought UA ideas and inventions from the laboratory to the marketplace.
College of Engineering graduates often go from projects to paychecks, landing jobs as a result of the experience and skills gained while tackling their senior design assignments. Recent employment opportunities have been with Shamrock Farms, Caterpillar, Xeridiem Medical Devices and others.
Spun out of the College of Pharmacy as a startup company in 2013 with help from Tech Launch Arizona, SinfoníaRx pioneered modern medication therapy management services.
Sizable populations of inactive workers in ant colonies have puzzled scientists for a long time. However, new research by UA biologists shows that these ants are far from useless.
Many Tumamoc Hill visitors are unaware of the Tucson site's ecological and archaeological value. The UA College of Science hopes to change that with a new mobile app.
The Aquaculture Pathology Laboratory tests shrimp samples, identifies diseases and certifies disease-free stock to help the nearly $40 billion farmed shrimp industry provide a safe food supply. And, yes, there's a reason for the lab's desert location. With UANews video.
