Engineers have created light-based technology that can detect biological substances with a molecular mass more than two orders of magnitude smaller than previously possible. The work could lead to the development of ultra-sensitive devices for quickly detecting pathogens in blood.
A team of researchers from the University of California San Diego and the University of Pittsburgh offers a new approach for developing treatments for pandemic Influenza A (pH1N1).
Proposals are now being accepted through March 13 for the Initiative for Digital Exploration of Arts and Sciences (IDEAS) 2020-2021 Performance Season
A new study at UC San Diego, published February 11, 2020, found that exposure to heatwaves during the last week of pregnancy was strongly linked to an increased risk of preterm delivery – the hotter the temperature or the longer the heatwave, the greater the risk.
Countless readers have been delighted by Dr. Seuss’s unmatched ability to craft catchy rhymes that are nearly impossible to forget. To help celebrate the life and work of this iconic American author, UC San Diego will host its annual birthday celebration for Dr. Seuss.
Researchers from the University of California San Diego, University of Texas at Austin, Stanford University and Mozilla have developed a new framework to improve web browser security. The framework, called RLBox, has been integrated into Firefox to complement its other security-hardening efforts.
Our graduate students are deeply valued members of our university community, who make vital contributions to the educational and scholarly mission of UC San Diego.
UC San Diego researchers suggest that prolonged exposure to a pair of antioxidant proteins may contribute to enlargement of the liver and fatty liver diseases.
UC San Diego announced a gift from Nissi and Ajit Varki, both professors at the university. The gift has been designated for the Center for Academic Research and Training in Anthropogeny (CARTA) to support a broad range of activities, including scholarly studies of the origins of humankind.
A long-feared scenario in which global warming causes Arctic permafrost to melt and release enough greenhouse gas to accelerate warming and cause catastrophe probably won’t happen. Researchers conclude that even if methane is released from permafrost, very little actually reaches the atmosphere.
