The Right Stuff
Sep 20, 2019Texas A&M senior chemistry major Oscar Gonzalez '20 is one of two students selected as the university's latest recipients of $10,000 scholarships from the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation, which seeks to strengthen U.S. leadership in science and technology by supporting the nation's best undergraduate students pursuing STEM majors.
Jun 28, 2019As a graduate student in astronomy at Texas A&M University, Taylor Hutchison '22 studies some of the most distant galaxies ever found, using some of the largest telescopes on Earth to do so. Learn more about her passion for science and the stars as well as the exhilarating potential of living a dream come true.
Apr 23, 2018Every spring since 2003, Texas A&M has hosted the Physics and Engineering Festival, attracting thousands of science enthusiasts for a free, daylong celebration of all things scientific, technological and fun. Despite unseasonably cold and rainy weather, this year's event drew record numbers.
Jan 08, 2020Texas A&M construction science professor and Center for Health Systems and Design Fellow Dr. Zofia Rybkowski will present the 2019-2020 Ethel Ashworth-Tsutsui Memorial Lecture, set for noon on Friday, January 17, in the Langford Architecture Center.
Dec 23, 2019'Tis the season to celebrate for Texas A&M biologists Richard Gomer and Darrell Pilling, whose biotechnology company Promedior Inc. sold in mid-November to Swiss drug maker Roche for $1.4 billion dedicated to the global life-saving fight against fibrotic disease.
Man on a Mission
Dec 10, 2019Texas A&M physicist Rupak Mahapatra has been appointed as director of research engagement for The Texas A&M University System National Laboratories Office (NLO), where he works to increase engagement between researchers throughout the Texas A&M System and all U.S. Department of Energy-affiliated laboratories — Los Alamos, in particular.
Food for Thought
Nov 29, 2019Texas A&M statistics major Alex Peters ’21 thought he was like every other young person in college — hungry to learn, hungry for adventure and hungry to embark on a major life milestone. Then he realized that some of his peers were just plain hungry, prompting him to get involved in First Year Eats and a yearlong research project to determine how adequate food intake can affect academic retention and GPR in freshmen.
Nov 26, 2019In research reported in the "Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences," Texas A&M biologists have found genetic evidence linking circadian clock genes and clock-regulated molecular pathways to the Monarch butterfly's uncanny ability to sense changes in day length that trigger their annual migration and the reproductive dormancy they exhibit during it — a clock-controlled seasonal response the biologists prove is clearly connected to the vitamin A pathway in the iconic insect's brain.
Crucible of Curiosity
Nov 11, 2019Chemist Sarbajit Banerjee and biologist Gil Rosenthal are among the 10 campus-wide faculty unveiled November 5 as Texas A&M University's inaugural class of Enhancing Development and Generating Excellence in Scholarship (EDGES) Fellows — mid-career faculty who are making significant marks in their disciplines and on track for membership in national academies or national and international awards.
