Digital media use is transforming the way young people learn, UCI researcher Mizuko “Mimi” Ito has found, and schools should take note.
UCI hematologist Dr. Jae Chang employs medical sleuthing skills to identify rare blood disorders.
Geriatric oncologist Dr. Homayoon Sanati decries the underrepresentation of seniors in clinical trials. He’s working with his UCI colleagues to provide a solution.
With $160,000 from the National Science Foundation, Jeff Barrett and colleagues are combing through, scanning and preserving documents they hope will shed light on how to understand measurement as a consistent physical process in quantum mechanics – one of physics’ most debated puzzles that Everett believed he had solved as a graduate student.
After more than one year of repairs, the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland is back on track to create high-energy particle collisions and yield extraordinary insights into the nature of the physical universe. Eight UC Irvine scientists are involved.
Electronic devices could create significant environmental and health problems after they are thrown away. UC Irvine researchers are working with engineers, manufacturers and public health officials to find solutions.
UC Irvine’s Aaron Barth, physics & astronomy associate professor, will speak on “Supermassive Black Holes in Galaxies” as part of the 2009-10 Discover the Physical Sciences Breakfast Lecture Series.
A UCI study shows that hardening of the arteries has been detected in Egyptian mummies as old as 3,500 years, suggesting that factors causing heart attacks and strokes are not solely byproducts of modern times.
