The University of Durham traces its roots some 600 years. The University of Durham received its Royal Charter in 1832. The University of Durham is comprised of the main departments and 16 colleges. The flagship campus is located in Durham, England and the other campus is in Stockton-On-Tees. The University of Durham is noted for its engineering, technology and design educations and an exemplary medical school The University of Durham consistently acquires grants and funding for research. Research digests are available on-line.
Potential signs of 'interacting' dark matter suggest it is not completely dark after all
Astronomers believe they might have observed the first potential signs of dark matter interacting with a force other than gravity.
Extent of Moon's giant volcanic eruption is revealed
Scientists have produced a new map of the Moon's most unusual volcano showing that its explosive eruption spread debris over an area much greater than previously thought.
Interactive dark matter could explain Milky Way's missing satellite galaxies
Scientists believe they have found a way to explain why there are not as many galaxies orbiting the Milky Way as expected.
Reduced rainfall in the northern tropics linked to industrial emissions, research suggests
Scientists have produced a rainfall record strongly suggesting that man-made industrial emissions have contributed to less rainfall in the northern tropics.
'Shrinking goats' another indicator that climate change affects animal size
Alpine goats appear to be shrinking in size as they react to changes in climate, according to new research from Durham University.
Scientists find potential way of controlling leaf blotch disease in wheat
Scientists have found a genetic mechanism that could stop the spread of a "devastating" disease threatening wheat crops.
'Cosmic own goal' another clue in hunt for dark matter
The hunt for dark matter has taken another step forward thanks to new supercomputer simulations showing the evolution of our "local Universe" from the Big Bang to the present day.
Microbes provide insights into evolution of human language
Big brains do not explain why only humans use sophisticated language, according to researchers who have discovered that even a species of pond life communicates by similar methods.
New discovery could stimulate plant growth and increase crop yields, researchers say
Scientists led by experts at Durham University have discovered a natural mechanism in plants that could stimulate their growth even under stress and potentially lead to better crop yields.
Mathematical modelling provides insights into the origins and evolution of folk tales
New insights into the origins and development of folk tales such as Little Red Riding Hood are being provided by the application of scientific analysis more commonly used by biologists to produce an evolutionary tree of life ...
