In a study published in the journal Science Advances, the researchers report the mechanism works this way: Sulfuric and nitric acid fall to the ground when fossil fuels are burned, causing acidification of the soil. When that happens, a significant amount of soil calcium washes out of the soil, and then plants suffer from calcium deficiency. Calcium deficiency causes the plants to intensify their use of water.
IUPUI Chancellor Nasser H. Paydar recently announced an interim dean appointment for the School of Science. Shiaofen Fang, Ph.D., professor and chair of the Department of Computer and Information Science, has been chosen to serve as interim dean of the School of Science effective July 1, 2019.

To fully understand why breast cancer spreads, or metastasizes, you must also consider the how.
That's what researchers in a biophysics and imaging laboratory in the School of Science at IUPUI did as they studied the mechanics of cell migration, which can possibly explain how cancer cells generate enough force to move from the primary tumor site through the body and then settle into bones, said Jing Liu, an assistant professor in the school's Department of Physics, a Purdue University program.
Even at birth, Julian Dilley had a greater affinity for the hospital than his five siblings.
