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.
Project focuses on lipids (fat molecules) as the starting point to understand the evolution of eukaryotic cells, carrying implications for human health and disease
Researchers affiliated with the UC San Diego Center for Astrophysics and Space Sciences show that high-density and continuous matter feed a galaxy’s black hole to keep the AGN active and bright
Chemists Wei Xiong and Haoyuan Wang hunt down tiny molecules that aren’t easy to see, which is why they developed an instrument that magnifies the molecular clarity of hydrogen-bond interactions to boost biometrics.
UC San Diego researchers engineered fluorescent tools that combine the gene editing technique CRISPR and biosensor technologies to look inside cells in a whole new way. Their findings show that a major protein that binds to the signaling molecule cAMP can form membraneless organelles in human cells.
A new discovery by a Backyard Worlds team of citizen scientists and international astrophysicists, including researchers from UC San Diego, shows that about 100 cool brown dwarfs, never before observed, are in residence…
Findings from a group of researchers, including a UC San Diego team, show how it’s possible to create a protein “multitool.” Their results provide a deeper understanding of how society can develop new materials with unique properties to solve real-world problems.
UC San Diego paved PATHS to success for under-resourced and underrepresented minority (URM) students in STEM more than a year ago. Now, it has built a bridge, thanks to support from a National Science Foundation grant administered through the American Chemical Society.
