COVID-19 vaccine vile
COVID-19 Discovery Saves Millions of Lives

Pioneering technology developed by Dartmouth scientists, led by Jason McLellan and a team at the Geisel School of Medicine in collaboration with the Scripps Research Institute and the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases, played a vital role in COVID-19 vaccine development and is now propelling Dartmouth into major investments for advancing research and education.

Climate Change and Sports

Are we entering the “climate-ball” era in baseball? A recent study from Dartmouth suggests rising temperatures due to global warming are contributing to more home runs. A report in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society shows that 500 home runs since 2010 can be attributed to increased temperatures from climate change.

(Mis)Information Overload

A Dartmouth study published in Science Advances challenges the idea that YouTube’s recommendations algorithm is driving users to encounter extremist and alternative video channels. Instead, the study revealed the consumption of such content is primarily due to a small group of users with high levels of gender and racial resentment who actively subscribe to and seek out this content. The findings underscore the complexity of addressing problematic content on YouTube and call for a more nuanced approach to the issue.
