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,…
5G capabilities will make it possible to harness sensor technologies, virtual reality, artificial intelligence and machine learning for unprecedented applications -- applications discussed at length during the conference.
EPARC's new Biodex System 4 and C-Mill treadmill will help exercise physiologists understand how much and what type of exercise to prescribe to patients, particularly those with gait difficulties.
UC San Diego and University of Notre Dame scientists report in a May issue of PLOS Computational Biology that a new technique can open up the field of nanopore-based protein identification, even in complex mixtures of different types of molecules.
The Institute for the Global Entrepreneur (IGE) at UC San Diego has announced team selections for its new technology accelerator. Five UC San Diego research teams, with innovations ranging from advanced healthcare diagnostics and medical device technologies to next generation LIDAR for autonomous-vehicle…
