Earlier this summer, the University of Cincinnati’'s Production Master Class traveled to the wilderness of Alaska to document Expedition Alaska 2015, a 350-mile, seven day non-stop adventure race.

In case you haven’t noticed, some really big equipment has been moving into the Children’s Hospital Liberty Campus and its impact for cancer patients could be huge.

The New Children's/UC Health Proton Therapy Center, scheduled to open in the winter of 2016-2017, has giant equipment that can zero in on a 3D image of a tumor and "spray paint" the cancerous cells with radiation without damaging surrounding cells.

Many people experience it at one time or another, you'’re listening to a song and suddenly feel as if the music or lyrics are speaking directly to you, capturing your mood, or conjuring up a memory that makes you happy or sad. Music has that ability, that power, it can brighten our mood, energize us, or turn us melancholy. And continued research shows music has true therapeutic value as well.

Following the fatal shooting of Sam DuBose by then-University of Cincinnati police officer Ray Tensing, the university put a team in place to focus on police reform and improved community relations. Criminal justice researcher Dr. Robin Engel has been appointed to the new role of Vice President for Safety and Reform, and UC hired James Whalen as Director of Public Safety and S. Gregory Baker as Director of Police Community Relations.

University of Cincinnati Police will again be patrolling the neighborhoods around the Uptown campus, but officers will still abide by a recently passed city ordinance restricting traffic enforcement.

Students across the country are getting ready to head-off to college campuses, many of them about to live away from home for the first time. Unfortunately, one of the new experiences they will probably have is getting sick, without mom or dad there to take them to the doctor, get their medicine, and nurse them back to health.

Green roofs, also known as eco-roofs or nature roofs, have become increasingly more popular as people and organizations realize their benefits, from better storm-water management and reduced CO2 impact to cutting down summer air conditioning costs. You may not realize it, but Washington Park is a green roof. And a 2,400 square foot green roof grows on top of Giraffe Ridge Barn at the Cincinnati Zoo.

A Hamilton County grand jury has indicted former University of Cincinnati police officer Ray Tensing for murder in the shooting death of Samuel DuBose in a July 19 traffic stop. The shooting was, Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph T. Deters said, the most “asinine” and “senseless” act he has ever seen a police officer commit. 

University of Cincinnati President Santa Ono and UC Police Chief Jason Goodrich met Monday with the Cincinnati city manager's advisory group.  

It meets monthly on police/community relations.  The city offered university officials a chance to talk with the group after a UC police officer shot and killed a man during a traffic stop July 19.  

The men and women who serve in our military, and their families,  face a variety of challenges and changes in their lives, during active duty time and after service members return from deployment and reintegrate back into more normal routines.

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters now has the police report in the fatal shooting of a motorist by a UC officer. It's the video of the incident that is causing some controversy and the prosecutor says he's not going to release it.


You don’t have to be a fan of cable news shows to know liberals and conservatives have very different ways of looking at the world. Now findings from three separate studies link a person’s political ideology and their self-control performance, with conservatives demonstrating greater self-control than liberals.

The University of Cincinnati calls its research on smart windows which simultaneously controls shade and privacy electronically at a low-cost "breakthrough." 

The patent-pending research from UC and its partners, Hewlett Packard and EMD/Merck Research Labs, is a roll-on coating made up of a honeycomb of electrodes.
