• 2017 Reines Lecture by Art McDonald

    In an ultra-clean laboratory 2 kilometers underground, the fundamental properties of neutrinos and dark matter can be studied, providing new insights into the laws of physics and the composition and evolution of the universe. Professor McDonald will discuss past and present measurements of the basic properties of these particles and the resulting impact on our understanding of the Sun, our galaxy, and our universe. Join us on March 1, 2017 for this annual lecture honoring Fred Reines.

  • Ralph Cicerone, fourth UCI chancellor and acclaimed scientist, dies at 73

    The School of Physical Sciences is deeply saddened by the loss of Ralph Cicerone. He played a central role in moving UCI to a premier position as a top research university. His design for the Department of Earth System Science was unique and well ahead of its time, bringing together top scientists to study a problem of crucial importance to humanity: climate change. Ralph will be dearly missed. To leave tributes and condolences go to ps.uci.edu/memorial/RalphCicerone
