$1.5 million gift creates Sean and Stella Harper Endowed Scholarship Fund
Sean Harper is the first person to admit he wasn’t the most disciplined student when he came to UC Riverside as a biomedical sciences student four decades ago. “I was still 17 for my first few weeks at UCR,” Harper said. “I knew that I wanted to study medicine but I wasn’t the most organized or prepared student. I had a lot to learn and my time at Riverside was transformative in that regard.”

Everything you’ve ever wanted to know about bees
World Bee Day is May 20. To mark the occasion, we gathered some of UC Riverside’s top bee experts to answer questions submitted on our Instagram page. The response created, for lack of a better term, quite a buzz! We got so many questions — hundreds — that we could not answer them all on social media. For those interested in lengthier answers to some of the questions, we’ve posted many of them here, organized by topic.  Entomology

Brome Mosaic virus molecule
Tiny particle, big payoff
UC Riverside scientists have solved a 20-year-old genetics puzzle that could result in ways to protect wheat, barley, and other crops from a devastating infection.  Ayala Rao, professor of plant pathology and microbiology, has been studying Brome Mosaic virus for decades. Unlike some viruses, the genetic material of this virus is divided into three particles that until now were impossible to tell apart.

Observation of intervalley transitions can boost valleytronic science and technology
An international research team led by scientists at the University of California, Riverside, has observed light emission from a new type of transition between electronic valleys, known as intervalley transmissions. The research provides a new way to read out valley information, potentially leading to new types of devices.
