  • Physics Researchers use Big Red II to Assess Vitamin E’s Ability to Protect Vital Fatty Acids


    Omega-3 polyunsaturated acids (n-3 PUFA) are fatty acids obtained from fish oils that have multiple health benefits. Various research has shown that dietary consumptions of fish oils, which contain omega-3 polyunsaturated acids, can help with cardiovascular diseases, cancer preventions, inflammatory processes, and metabolism improvements. However, it is easy for these fatty acids to be oxidized, and once oxidation happens, health benefits are likely to be lost.

    IUPUI faculty receive $1.5 million grant to prepare new STEM teachers


    INDIANAPOLIS -- A team of six IUPUI faculty members has been awarded a five-year, $1.5 million grant to prepare undergraduate students for careers as secondary STEM teachers. The award comes from the National Science Foundation Robert NoyceTeacher Scholarship Program, which seeks to encourage talented science, technology, engineering and mathematics majors and professionals to become K-12 mathematics and science -- including engineering and computer science -- teachers.

    Nine Science students receive 2018 Plater Medallion

    INDIANAPOLIS – The William M. Plater Civic Engagement Medallion is designed to honor graduating IUPUI students who have shown an exemplary commitment to the community and who have developed an ethic of civic mindedness. This engagement includes activities such as volunteer or pro-bono service at a non-profit agency, participation in service learning courses, voluntary service abroad or involvement with a faculty member on a community-based research project.

    Bucking tradition, family man Jake Whiteside graduates with neuroscience, Chinese combo

    Before coming to campus, Whiteside was home-schooled. He moved out at 17 years old to fix up a mobile home, plumbing included, for the woman who became his wife shortly after his 18th birthday. Just weeks shy of commencement, he already has two young children. He'll also have two degrees, and even they aren't a common combination.

    It would be easy to think that a trailblazer has to travel alone. In Whiteside's case, however, his success along nontraditional paths has been achieved largely with limitless support from those around him.

    School of Science announces Top 100 Students for 2018
