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 Researchers Make Next Move in Fight Against Ovarian Cancer
With a grant from the U.S. Army, the UA's Jennifer Barton is continuing research into a disposable falloposcope to detect early-stage ovarian cancer.
Aging a Flock of Stars in the Wild Duck Cluster
Astronomers found that the way almost 3,000 stars in one of the richest star clusters move belies their true ages, which has helped solve a long-standing puzzle about how stars evolve.

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.
