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.
UC San Diego chemistry researchers find that the smallest fresh sea spray particles become 100,000 times more acidic than the ocean within two minutes.
UC San Diego chemist Seth Cohen is helping to shape the trajectory of science in the U.S. With a serious interest in civics and public policy since high school, Cohen double-majored in chemistry and political science in college.
Physicist Chunhui Du was selected to receive the U.S. Air Force's Young Investigator Research Program (YIP) Award for her nanoscale quantum sensing technique using diamonds to study novel and unconventional superconductor materials.
Computational Chemist Rommie Amaro, members of her lab win one of the most coveted awards in supercomputing for research related to COVID-19
There is no hole-in-one drug treatment when it comes to the flu, but that doesn’t stop scientists from trying to sink one. Especially since as many as one in five Americans gets the flu. The reported estimated cost of this illness is $10 billion each year in medical expenses and another $16 billion…
Research findings by UC San Diego’s Mark Thiemens and former Chancellor’s Dissertation Medalist Mang Lin narrow down the complex nitrogen cycles at work in the atmosphere, cryosphere, hydrosphere, and, potentially, the biosphere.
The Student Success Center, which opened in February 2020, offers physical sciences students mentoring and internship opportunities in preparation for their careers. It also develops programs and events to continuously deliver on this mission—even amid this pandemic.
UC San Diego chemical biology researchers achieve the first, efficient, enzyme-free, watery creation of natural phospholipids, opening new routes for lipid synthesis in artificial cells and providing insights for sustainable chemistry.
Nobel Prize in Chemistry Awardee and Distinguished Professor Mario Molina will be remembered for dedicating his life to research and working to protect our environment.
