Dr. Alan R. Price presents “Public Research Misconduct Cases in Texas: What We Can Learn From Them and How to Avoid Such a Case in Your Lab”
Research at University of Houston
At the University of Houston, faculty and students conduct world-class research through more than 40 research centers and in every academic department. From biomedical sciences to community advancement to arts and human enrichment, UH research regularly breaks new ground and opens doors to new ways of understanding the world.
By Jeannie Kever:: Four UH researchers have been named as fellows to the National Academy of Inventors, driven both by intellectual curiosity and by the desire to improve the lives of the people around them.
By Jeannie Kever:: Zhifeng Ren received the O'Donnell Award in science from The Academy of Medicine, Engineering and Science of Texas, which cited his contributions in five scientific fields: carbon nanotubes, thermoelectrics, hierarchical zinc oxide nanowires, high temperature superconductivity, and molecule delivery/sensing.
By Lisa Merkl:: A UH geoscientist and his colleagues reveal a few surprises they discovered upon penetrating the lower crust of the Pacific Ocean. The findings from this $10 million international expedition are described in the Dec. 1 issue of Nature.
By Lisa Merkl:: Do fruit flies hold the key to treating dementia? Researchers at UH have taken a significant step forward in unraveling the mechanisms of Pavlovian conditioning. Their work will help them understand how memories form and, ultimately, provide better treatments to improve memory in all ages.
By Melissa Carroll:: A new study by University of Houston researchers may lead to dramatic changes in the way language is taught and learned – especially a second language.
By Marisa Ramirez:: A new project from the University of Houston College of Education Urban Talent Research Institute encourages the incorporation of creative endeavors to attract more and better STEM students.
By Jeannie Kever:: A company co-founded by UH researcher Audrius Brazdeikis to bring technology that can help physicians better manage the care of breast cancer patients has won the inaugural Nanomedicine Award in the European Union.
By Mike Emery:: Children who frequent Houston’s DeZavala Park (7520 Ave. H in Houston’s the city’s community) are noticing new amenities where they can exercise their bodies and minds. Credit the University of Houston Community Design Research Center (CDRC) for DeZavala’s new Play Zone (or Zona de Juego).
By Lisa Merkl:: Seeking to pinpoint Alzheimer’s disease at its earliest manifestations, researchers at UH are working toward ways to slow down memory loss that would allow patients to better cope with this devastating disease.
By Jeannie Kever:: The open house will will allow visitors, UH faculty and students to tour the new additions to inorganic and organic analytical labs, as well as the Center for Petroleum Geochemistry.
By Jeannie Kever:: A team of engineering students worked with a NASA scientist to design and build a device to freeze water in microgravity. Now they'll fly with it in NASA's microgravity plane.
By Lisa Merkl:: UH professor Guoquan Wang received a three-year, $168,000 National Science Foundation award that will integrate GPS and LiDAR into the UH undergraduate geosciences curriculum.
By Marisa Ramirez:: An effort from faculty at the University of Houston Conrad N. Hilton College of Hotel and Restaurant Management (HRM) has had a two-fold effect of increasing writing and publishing productivity, while creating a new writing culture among faculty.
By Mike Garrity:: Researchers and staff at the Texas Center for Superconductivity at the University of Houston (TcSUH) recently contributed to an upcoming installment of the award-winning PBS television series, “NOVA.”
By Lisa Merkl:: University of Houston President Renu Khator has named Dean Earl L. Smith III to a two-year term as Interim Chief Health Officer. Smith will lead the University of Houston’s efforts to develop a strategic plan and launch the new UH Health Science Center.
By Lisa Merkl:: UH professor Cecilia Williams has been awarded a $1.56 million grant from the National Cancer Institute to investigate colon cancer prevention and therapy.
By Marisa Ramirez:: Using Facebook as an applicant-selection tool may be convenient for employers, but a new survey indicates the practice creates a perception among potential applicants that the company is unfair.
By Lisa Merkl:: Best known for its association with the BRCA gene mutations, triple-negative breast cancer is the only type of breast cancer for which there has yet to be a specific therapy. This type of cancer is highly metastatic and has a very poor prognosis. Researchers at UH hope their work will lead to new therapies for this devastating disease.
By Mike Emery:: “Collective HER-story: A Mosaic Masterpiece Exploring the Carey C. Shuart Women’s Archives” will feature photographs, letters, papers, memorabilia and multimedia tools dedicated to women who have made a difference in Houston and beyond.
