Scientists at UC San Diego and Brookhaven Laboratory in New York investigated a diverse population of meteorites. Among the 15 pieces of comets and asteroids studied, they found two with superconductive grains.
Astronomers working on “first light” data from a newly commissioned telescope in Chile made a chance discovery that led to the identification of a rare eclipse of two brown dwarfs. The result published today in the journal Nature Astronomy.
A team of chemists and biochemists at UC San Diego used a combination of computational simulations and experiments to deepen understanding of the latest genome editing technology.
A team of astronomers led by UC San Diego physicist Shelley Wright is deploying a pair of telescopes that will constantly search the nighttime sky for signals from intelligent life in our galaxy.
Scientists work to understand circadian rhythms at the molecular level to help develop innovative therapies for fixing biological clock dysfunctions caused by inherited conditions, modern habits, shift working or aging.
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).
In the world of fashion, inspiration is born from the ordinary and extraordinary—city streets, nature, architecture, culture . . . and biochemistry? For UC San Diego alumna Jinghan Zong, absolutely.
Six UC San Diego researchers have been named to receive prestigious 2020 Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowships. Considered among the most promising researchers working today, the new UC San Diego Sloan fellows are part of a cohort of 126 early career scientists selected in the U.S. and Canada.
o see stars that are fainter and farther away in the galaxy, astronomers need the goods—telescopes, adaptive optics, fast computers and state-of-the-art detectors. To that end, the Heising-Simons Foundation is delivering. With nearly $1 million in new funding from the foundation.
