The 31st annual conference on Neural Information Processing Systems attracted nearly 8,000 attendees, including a large delegation from Computer Science and Engineering as well as three other UC San Diego departments.
A hardware security company co-founded by UC San Diego computer scientists has received $2 million in seed funding from Eclipse Ventures to ramp up engineering, sales and marketing of semiconductor design tools to identify and prevent security vulnerabilities.
For the first time, a delegation of faculty and students from the University of California San Diego attended the annual Out in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (oSTEM) National Conference to promote greater involvement of LGBT+ community in STEM fields.
How sensitive is the human sense of touch? Sensitive enough to feel the difference between surfaces that differ by just a single layer of molecules, a team of researchers at the University of California San Diego has shown.
Researchers have developed new single-cell sequencing methods that could be used to map the cell origins of various brain disorders, including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. By analyzing individual nuclei of cells from adult human brains, researchers have identified…
Researchers have identified a promising new strategy to fight infections and cancer. They uncovered a novel function for a protein known as “Runx3” that is key to the development of killer T cells—immune cells important for fighting infections and cancer. The researchers believe Runx3, if properly…
Scientists have developed a new algorithm that can identify distinct click patterns among millions of clicks in recordings of wild dolphins, whose communication serves as a sentinel of ocean ecosystem health.
Don Cleveland spends much of his time ruminating on the faulty molecular mechanisms that drive diseases like amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease) and Huntington’s. James McKernan explores the world of birational geometry. Joanne Chory digs into the secrets of plant life.
UC San Diego is a hotbed for talented young innovators and thinkers. Just ask Forbes. The global media company and business magazine recently named four UC San Diego affiliates to its 2018 Forbes 30 Under 30 list, an annual “encyclopedia of creative disruption” featuring 30 young leaders in each…
Thirty two faculty members at the University of California San Diego are among the world’s most influential researchers in their fields, based on their publications over the past decade.
