Laurel Riek, associate professor of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of California San Diego, will lead a three-year National Science Foundation (NSF) project on new methods for coordinating teams of robots and people in complex, uncertain environments.
The University of California San Diego has been ranked the 15th best university in the world by the 2017 Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU). UC San Diego was also named the world’s third best public college. The campus was named the world’s fourth best public college and nationally, UC…
The study -- led by QI affiliate Cinnamon Bloss -- was published in today's edition of the Journal of the American Medical Association and suggests a strong resistance to the use of genetically engineered mosquitoes for controlling disease.
QI Innovation Space member CARI Therapeutics has received a grant from the National Institutes of Health to collaboratively develop a biosensor that will detect the presence of opioids in patients in recovery.
A team of computer scientists from the University of California San Diego are taking part for the first time in the international RoboCup @ Home competition, which this year takes place July 27 to 31 in Nagoya, Japan.
DARPA has selected a team that includes UC San Diego scientists to study an innovative genetic research technique as a way to control disease-causing mosquitoes. The project, which will receive up to $14.9 million, will focus on a technique known as gene drive, which can spread desirable genes in wild…
Scientists have linked specific wiring in the brain to distinct behavioral symptoms of depression. In a study published in Cell, researchers at UC San Diego found brain circuits tied to feelings of despair and helplessness and were able to alleviate and even reverse such symptoms in mice studies.
Five UC San Diego professors will receive $4MN as part of an international collaboration led by Brown University to develop grain-sized sensors, actuators and networking to be inserted into the cerebral cortex for brain research or repair. DARPA is funding the overall $19MN project announced this week.
The Health Cyberinfrastructure (CI) Division of the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California San Diego, has deployed its secure and compliant Cloud solution, Sherlock Cloud, in Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Using a novel molecular dynamics method capable of capturing the motion of gyrating proteins at time intervals up to one thousand times greater than previous efforts, a team led by UC San Diego researchers has identified, for the first time, the myriad structural changes that activate and drive CRISPR-Cas9,…
