I am saddened to announce the passing of Jorg Meyer, UCI’s glassblower, and much-loved member of the UCI Physical Sciences family.  Through his work fabricating glassware and stainless-steel solvent purification systems for research laboratories, Jorg made enormous contributions to the safety of chemical laboratories at UCI and around the world. He was an expert in the design and construction of highly complex, one-of-a-kind technical apparatus. Aside from being an iconic glassblower, Jorg was…

Intense, wide-spread melting events in Greenland, such as one in July 2012 that touched nearly every part of the massive island’s frozen slab, are catastrophic, but they still account for only a small portion of the total deterioration of the ice sheet, according to researchers at the University of California, Irvine.

Every environment on the planet -- from forested mountaintops to scorching deserts and even the human gut -- has a microbiome that keeps it healthy and balanced. Ecologist Steven Allison explores how these extraordinarily adaptable, diverse collections of microorganisms could help solve big global problems like climate change and food insecurity -- and makes the case for getting to know Earth's original inhabitants in fascinating ways.

I am Erin Joy E. Araneta and I am an undergraduate student researcher working on organometallic chemistry research at Dr. Jenny Yang’s lab at UC Irvine. I am very passionate about my research where I work with my mentor, Alissa Matus, who aims to find better ways to capture carbon dioxide and recycle it to turn it into fuel, gasoline, or energy. I think it is very exciting to try to find ways to promote sustainability in a cost-effective and inclusive way.
