Armin Sorooshian, an assistant professor of chemical and environmental engineering at the UA, is among 85 engineers across the nation selected to participate in the invitation-only Frontiers of Engineering symposium. Sorooshian studies atmospheric aerosol particles.
Shane C. Burgess, who leads veterinary research at Mississippi State University and has worked around the world, succeeds Eugene G. Sander as dean of the UA College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. Burgess has a prolific research portfolio that spans a range of biological sciences.
Inhibiting a molecular process cells use to direct proteins to their proper destinations causes more than 90 percent of affected mosquitoes to die within 48 hours of blood feeding, a UA team of biochemists found.
Melting ice sheets contributed much more to rising sea levels than thermal expansion of warming ocean waters during the Last Interglacial Period, a UA-led team of researchers has found. The results further suggest that ocean levels continue to rise long after warming of the atmosphere levels off.
