Revealing the demise of native American dogs
Around 15,000 years ago, man’s best friend followed humans—most likely from Siberia—into North America, according to new findings from an international team of researchers. They discovered the true evolutionary history of American dogs, debunking the belief that the continent’s earliest dogs descended from North American wolves. But surprisingly, the dogs who roamed the Americas before […]

Linic, global delegation release solar energy research recommendations
Coral reefs are losing color and the ability to fight disease. Glaciers are melting and sea levels are rising at accelerated rates, spurring increased flooding along coastlines. Scientific evidence links these environmental—and in some cases, irreversible—changes to increasing amounts of carbon dioxide collecting in the Earth’s atmosphere. Scientists are urgently searching for ways to shift […]
Building community: Chemical Engineering PhD student creates space for LGBTQ engineers
For years, Chemical Engineering PhD student Shannon Moran searched for a mentor who mirrored herself.
