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.

Global Leader in Insect Management Earns Koffler Prize
UA professor Bruce Tabashnik has earned the 2015 Koffler Prize for Research/Scholarship/Creative Activity, which honors a dedicated scientist, scholar and collaborator whose mission is to “conduct research to improve food production while preserving environmental quality.”
Breathing Life Into Art
"Symbiosis: An Exhibit of Biological Art," an event promoting the fusion of science and art, will feature work from more than 50 artists, including UA faculty, staff and students and members of the Tucson community.
Meteorites Date Moon-Forming Impact Event
Through a combination of data analysis and numerical modeling work, researchers have found a record of the ancient moon-forming giant impact observable in stony meteorites. The research indicates numerous kilometer-sized fragments from the giant impact struck main belt asteroids at much higher velocities than typical main belt collisions.
Accelerating Universe: Not As Fast?
A UA-led team of astronomers has found that the expansion of the universe since the Big Bang might not be quite as fast as textbooks say, thanks to a diversity of supernovae.
Ecosystem Metaphor May Apply to Humans
Principles from biological systems that are parallel to human systems may provide ways of understanding how human groups — and even terrorist organizations — function.
