The University of California, Riverside (www.ucr.edu) is a doctoral research university, a living laboratory for groundbreaking exploration of issues critical to Inland Southern California, the state and communities around the world. Reflecting California's diverse culture, UCR's enrollment has exceeded 20,500 students. The campus will open a medical school in 2013.  The campus has an annual statewide economic impact of more than $1 billion.

The university's research heritage, our resources and our location make it an ideal place for exploring air, water, energy, biodiversity, sustainability, land use, the habitat/agriculture interface and much more.

What we do and study here makes a difference to people every day: Every orange, lemon, lime and tangerine found on your grocer’s shelf has a genetic connection to the trees at our Citrus Research Collection. Our scientists have earned worldwide recognition for their expertise and breakthrough findings in the areas of plant sciences, environmental and natural resources and pest management.

Our recent research innovations include:

  • Engine technology that allows cars to run on a mix of hydrogen and natural gas.

  • New varieties of citrus and asparagus.

  • An efficient and clean method of turning waste materials into a sulfur-free diesel fuel.
