Maybe this is what we have been missing in knowing how humans combat viral infections. ... Maybe this is the one that really matters.

Shou-Wei Ding, professor of plant pathology and microbiology, on his laboratory’s discovery of the RNA interference (RNAi) in mammals, which has opened up new possibilities to combat dangerous human viruses


The width of a man's face is only one of many factors determining his behavior. So don't judge a man just on that one factor, although the evidence indicates it could play a role in how we interact at work and at play.

Michael P. Haselhuhn, associate professor of management, on his research indicating that men with wider faces are more aggressive and less trustworthy


I think it's not accurate that this was essentially the straw that broke the camel's back. The prospects for immigration reform were looking very dicey anyway.

Karthick Ramakrishnan, associate professor of political science, on the government shutdown and its impact on immigration reform


When we buy a new dress or a house or a car, it does give us a thrill at first, but it doesn't last. It's a vicious cycle of wanting more.

Sonja Lyubomirsky, professor of psychology, on lasting joy and how material possessions are easier to get accustomed to, compared to experiences

Richard Vetter, a retired staff research associate in the UCR Department of Entomology, on his survey of 41 entomologists who admitted that even they have an irrational fear of spiders


Ours is the first study to add the RNA molecule to the list of effectors. We expect our work will help in the development of new means to control aggressive pathogens.

Hailing Jin, professor of plant pathology and microbiology, on the discovery of a novel virulence mechanism of Botrytis cinerea, an aggressive fungal pathogen that causes mold in fruits and vegetables


Our findings could lead to a new generation of cheap, affordable repellents that could protect humans, animals and, in the future, our crops.

Anandasankar Ray, associate professor of entomology, on the four natural mosquito repellents that are safer than DEET
