The University of Liverpool was founded in 1881 and enjoys a solid reputation for its school of engineering, veterinary medicine and medicine. Today over 21,000 undergraduate, graduate, post-doctoral, on-line students and extension students make up the student body. The University of Liverpool has eight Nobel Laureates who have been associated with its university. It houses Centres of Excellence for research and recently expanded its global scope by opening an independent university in Suzhou, China in partnership with Xi'an Jiotong University. Researcher and press inquiries are welcome.
Winter season reverses outcome of fruit fly reproduction
Male fruit flies could find their chances of fathering offspring radically reduced if they are last in the queue to mate with promiscuous females before winter arrives, according to new University of Liverpool research.
Discovery of hidden earthquake presents challenge to earthquake early-warning systems
Seismologists at the University of Liverpool studying the 2011 Chile earthquake have discovered a previously undetected earthquake which took place seconds after the initial rupture.
New study indicates Earth's inner core was formed 1 - 1.5 billion years ago
There have been many estimates for when the earth's inner core was formed, but scientists from the University of Liverpool have used new data which indicates that the Earth's inner core was formed 1 - 1.5 billion years ago ...
Scientists demonstrate new semiconductor material for solar cell technology
The University of Liverpool is part of an international research team that have demonstrated a new semiconductor material made from abundant elements which can be "tuned" for use in solar cells instead of rare elements.
Camels test positive for respiratory virus in Kenya
A new study has found that nearly half of camels in parts of Kenya have been infected by the virus that causes Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and calls for further research into the role they might play in the transmission ...
Poisonous frogs more likely to face extinction, study finds
Scientists at the University of Liverpool have found that amphibians that use toxins to protect themselves against predators are at a higher risk of extinction than those who use other types of defence, which poses a challenge ...
Game theory experts to analyse space debris removal
Researchers from the University of Liverpool are using strategic game theory to analyse the accumulation of space debris, and to assess removal efforts and mitigation measures to limit its growth.
Scientists downsize the giant 'Dreadnoughtus' dinosaur
Scientists at the University of Liverpool have shown that the most complete giant sauropod dinosaur, Dreadnoughtus, discovered by palaeontologists in South America in 2014, was not as large as previously thought.
Designing switchable electric and magnetic order for low-energy computing
Scientists at the University of Liverpool have developed a new material that combines both electrical and magnetic order at room temperature, using a design approach which may enable the development of low-energy computer ...
Researchers uncover genetic basis for kin recognition in mice
Researchers from the University of Liverpool have identified the genetic basis of how mice can recognise close relatives, even if they have never encountered them before.
