In a first-of-its-kind study, researchers have shown that nanoparticles may have a bigger impact on the environment than previously thought. This is the first report of non-antibacterial nanoparticles causing resistance in bacteria.
A team of researchers from the University of Minnesota and University of Massachusetts Amherst has discovered new technology that can speed up chemical reactions 10,000 times faster than the current reaction rate limit. These findings could increase th…
A team of researchers led by the University of Minnesota and The Ohio State University have released the most accurate high-resolution terrain map of Antarctica ever created.
The University of Minnesota announced today an award of $8 million over the next four years from the Simons Foundation to an international collaboration that will study the fundamental science of waves.
A team of researchers led by the University of Minnesota has developed a new material that could potentially improve the efficiency of computer processing and memory.
More than halfway across the universe, researchers have spotted the farthest individual star ever seen.
Every year, the University of Minnesota’s business venture competition, called the Acara Challenge, shines a spotlight on University students with ideas that could change the world. This year’s winners are no exception.
A study by University of Minnesota researchers provides new insights to demonstrate that multiple wetlands or ‘wetland complexes’ within a watershed are extremely effective at reducing harmful nitrate in rivers and streams. These wetlands can be up to …
By studying wild rice in lakes and streams, a team of researchers led by the University of Minnesota has discovered that sulfate in waterways is converted into toxic levels of sulfide and increases other harmful elements.
A new discovery, led by researchers at the University of Minnesota, demonstrates the existence of a new kind of magnetoresistance involving topological insulators that could result in improvements in future computing and computer storage.
