University of California San Diego School of Medicine and Moores Cancer Center researchers report that intermittent fasting reduced breast cancer risk in obese mice.
Based on the precise measurements reported in this study, researchers hypothesized what mixtures of bulk ingredients could give the TRAPPIST-1 planets their densities, offering the most precise picture of exoplanet composition achieved to date.
With the third week of winter quarter underway at the University of California San Diego, COVID-19 case rates have fallen dramatically since classes resumed on Jan. 4. The current test positivity rate on campus has reduced to pre-break levels of less than 1%.
A new tool for monitoring COVID-19 may one day be right under your nose. Researchers at the University of California San Diego are developing a color-changing test strip that can be stuck on a mask and used to detect SARS-CoV-2 in a user’s breath or saliva.
When university campuses sent students, staff and faculty members home in March because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Padmini Rangamani, a professor at UC San Diego, suddenly found herself running her research lab remotely, teaching her classes online, and supervising her two children, ages 10 and 13, who…
In November 2020, Lucira Health received emergency use authorization for the first rapid at-home COVID-19 testfrom the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Erik Engelson, a UC San Diego bioengineering and microbiology alumnus, is president and CEO of Lucira Health, which was founded by a UC Berkeley…
“That’s one small step for a woman, one giant leap for humankind...” By 2024, the famous quote from astronaut Neil Armstrong could be updated and revised to include the first woman to step foot on the moon…and that woman just might be a UC San Diego alumna.
UC San Diego study supports launch of Phase I clinical trial to test a designer DNA agent — an antisense oligonucleotide that targets a gene called IRF4 — in patients with multiple myeloma.
As mandates prevented gatherings over the holiday season, crowds in Chile and Argentina donned masks and eye shields to view some a two-minute solar eclipse on December 14. A week before, researchers at PSI used SDSC's Expanse supercomputer to see how closely they could simulate the event.
By combining large amounts of low-fidelity data with smaller quantities of high-fidelity data, nanoengineers at UC San Diego have developed a machine learning method to more accurately predict the properties of new materials including, for the first time, disordered materials.
