A multi-institutional research team has been awarded a $2 million National Science Foundation grant to build an interdisciplinary research program that explores how the brain learns and stores information.
Researchers from UC San Diego and MIT achieved impressive agreement between theory and experiment, shedding light on how water interacts with MOFs and moving closer to developing materials that address global water scarcity.
With a new grant of $4 million from the National Science Foundation, UC San Diego’s Neal Devaraj and Yale University’s Farren Isaacs are launching new research that will help assess the risks and rewards of mirror life.
A recent study by researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine found that the presence of and search for meaning in life are important for health and well-being, though the relationships differ in adults younger and older than age 60.
People with cystic fibrosis who carry genetic variants that lower RNF5 gene expression have more mutant CFTR protein on cell surfaces. Even if the CFTR protein isn’t fully functional, it’s better than none, and may explain why some with cystic fibrosis are less prone to infection than others.
Scientists have found the most effective CRISPR shield ever discovered in viruses. They discovered a remarkable new strategy that some bacteria-killing viruses, or phages, employ: after they infect bacteria, these phages construct an impenetrable “safe room” inside of their host.
UC San Diego’s Richard Lingenfelter, a research physicist emeritus at the Center for Astrophysics and Space Sciences, confirms the source of the universe’s cosmic rays—the most energetic particles known.
The 25th Conference of the Parties, or COP 25, run by the United Nations, is underway in Madrid until Dec. 13 and many University of California San Diego faculty and scholars are playing key roles in the event.
Researchers from University of California San Diego School of Medicine and the Salk Institute for Biological Studies reported a form of intermittent fasting, called time-restricted eating, improved the health of study participants who had been diagnosed with metabolic syndrome.
UC San Diego launches new Center for Fluorescence-Guided Surgery. The center builds upon Roger Tsien’s legacy, delivering a new caliber of surgical precision to treat patients with tumors and disease of all types, identifying unhealthy tissues with a fluorescent glow.
