Oct 13, 2017As a postdoctoral fellow in Michael Rosbash's Brandeis laboratory, Texas A&M biologist Paul E. Hardin was first author on one of the seminal papers cited in the breakthrough biological clocks research recognized with the 2017 Nobel Prize in Medicine or Physiology in what Hardin describes as "a proud moment for circadian clocks."
Jun 15, 2017Texas A&M chemistry major Oscar Gonzalez '20 has always held high expectations for himself, especially when it comes to academics. College seemed like a no-brainer for the high school standout, but due to the cost, it was a fine line between no-brainer and no guarantee. Thanks to the Science Leadership Scholars Program, he's found both success and a home in Aggieland.
Jul 20, 2015Each summer, Texas A&M chemist James Pennington treks across Texas in a custom-fitted cargo van to spread scientific goodwill and supplement summer enrichment programs at area schools, libraries and museums as coordinator for one of Texas A&M's most popular educational outreach programs, the Chemistry Road Show.
May 24, 2019Texas A&M chemist Karen Wooley's laboratory is fighting hemorrhage — a leading cause of death in traumatic injuries — by developing a bioabsorbable wound dressing with encapsulated chitosan nanofibers that, when applied to liver injury sites in animals, dissolves in as little as seven days, eliminating the need for subsequent physical removal and any chance of re-injury in the process

May 09, 2019Congratulations to Texas A&M statistician Cliff Spiegelman, who has been recognized by the Texas A&M chapter of Sigma Xi with one of its primary annual awards celebrating scientific excellence and advancement — the 2019 Outstanding Science Communicator Award.
May 03, 2019Texas A&M Science Ph.D. students Rajat Maji, Shubhadeep Chakraborty and Agustin Millet are among 15 selected university-wide to receive 2019 Distinguished Graduate Student Awards recognizing excellence in research, teaching and mentoring.
Apr 30, 2019On April 28, friends, family and colleagues across the Texas A&M campus gathered to remember Texas A&M professor Wesley Thompson, a neurobiologist who joined the Department of Biology in 2013 and explored various developmental aspects of the simplest of all vertebrae synapses, the neuromuscular junction, to gain insight into how the brain and overall human body adjust to aging, disease and injury.
A Universal Mystery
Apr 25, 2019Armed with new Hubble Space Telescope data and an improved technique, a team of astronomers including Texas A&M professor Lucas Macri has made the most accurate measurement of the universe's expansion rate to date — a surprising 4-sigma discrepancy from Planck's prediction that strengthens the case for new physics.
