UC San Diego Health System is a world leader in chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH), and now with a $7.6 million grant, has helped launch the first national CTEPH registry to improve best practices and patient care.
While investigating a rare genetic disorder, researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have discovered that a ubiquitous signaling molecule is crucial to cellular reprogramming, a finding with significant implications for stem cell-based regenerative medicine, wound repair…
Sandra A. Brown, vice chancellor for research at UC San Diego, was a featured speaker at an October Congressional Briefing in Washington, D.C., where she shared important findings on adolescent neurodevelopment with other scientists and national leaders.
Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and Ludwig Cancer Research, with colleagues across the country and world, have discovered that a significant number of mouse genes do not in fact behave like their human counterparts, suggesting science will need to rethink at…
Triclosan is an antimicrobial commonly found in soaps, shampoos, toothpastes and many other household items. Despite its widespread use, researchers at University of California, San Diego School of Medicine report potentially serious consequences of long-term exposure to the chemical.
An antibody therapy already in clinical trials to treat chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) may also prove effective against ovarian cancer – and likely other cancers as well, report researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine.
Researchers at University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have developed a way to chemically disguise RNAi drugs so that they are able to enter cells. Once inside, cellular machinery converts these disguised drug precursors — called siRNNs — into active RNAi drugs.
Bess Marcus, PhD, has been appointed senior associate dean for Public Health with the UC San Diego School of Medicine.
With the help of mouse models, induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) and the “tooth fairy,” researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have implicated a new gene in idiopathic or non-syndromic autism.
Imagine being able to recognize your car as your own but never being able to remember where you parked it. Researchers at University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have induced this all-too-common human experience permanently in rats and from what is observed perhaps derive clues about why…
