While pursuing her doctorate, Burçin Mutlu-Pakdil discovered an especially rare, double-ringed galaxy. The discovery drew international attention, and the galaxy is now known as Burçin's galaxy.
An international research team led by UA researchers found that planet warming drove major changes in vegetation and future warming may drive similarly dramatic changes around the world.
Astronomers have detected the most-distant galactic "wind" of molecules ever observed, seen when the universe was only one billion years old.
UA researchers were able to access untapped clues about the monsoon's activity during the last ice age, with implications that may help predict the monsoon's future.

UA Science: A Place of Discovery and Innovation

Joaquin Ruiz, DeanThe University of Arizona College of Science brings together globally prominent faculty in disciplines at the core of scientific inquiry and education. One of the largest colleges at the University of Arizona, we are a nexus of award-winning programs that encourage both independent and collaborative-driven research. Our academic departments, schools and research units encompass the range of physical, mathematical, environmental, cognitive and life sciences. UA Science is among the most powerful and prolific academic research centers in the world, recognized and rewarded for the unparalleled caliber of our achievements. With over 7,500 undergraduate and graduate students, we are an integrative learning institution, where accomplished faculty and next-generation scientists engage side-by-side in groundbreaking research. Our scientists and students also share their knowledge with the local and broader community through extensive outreach and public service initiatives. Our mission is to encourage the aggressive pursuit of research excellence, to support novel teaching and outreach programs and to create economic opportunities for our community.

Measuring species traits to monitor biodiversity
Management of global biodiversity requires up-to-date, reliable and comparable biodiversity data, and essential biodiversity variables such as species traits are way to monitor the global state of biodiversity.
UA and Microsoft Create Cloud Infrastructure Partnership to Train Tomorrow's Leaders
The new Cloud Infrastructure Renewal Center will focus on developing sustainable data centers and educating students to engineer, operate and manage them.
Ceres Takes Life an Ice Volcano at a Time
In a new study by UA planetary scientists, observations prove that ice volcanoes on the dwarf planet Ceres generate enough material to fill one movie theater each year.
Data on Demand: Creating a Search Engine for Microbiome Sciences
The Hurwitz Lab makes extremely large data sets from a range of storage servers searchable to assist scientific discovery.
Tracking the Movement of the Tropics 800 Years into the Past
A UA-led research team used tree rings to trace the north-south shifts of the tropics back 800 years. They found that periods of tropical expansion coincided with severe droughts.

Workplace Climate Committee

The mission of the committee is to help foster a positive and inclusive work environment in the College of Science where all individuals – faculty, staff, and students – feel welcomed and respected, and that their opinions are valued.
