A new collaborative project involving UC San Diego aims to leverage the capabilities of multi-petawatt lasers to demonstrate efficient generation of dense gamma-ray beams.
For the first time, researchers have visually monitored, in high resolution, the timing and location of fat storage within the intact cells of fruit flies.
Engineering researchers have invented an advanced brain-computer interface with a flexible and moldable backing and penetrating microneedles. Adding a flexible backing to this kind of brain-computer interface allows the device to more evenly conform to the brain’s complex curved surface.
In classic UC San Diego fashion, an overheard conversation at a campus coffee cart has turned into an interdisciplinary project that's making computing-intensive coursework more exciting while saving well over $1 million dollars so far.
The National Institutes of Health has awarded a $12.25 million grant to the University of California San Diego to develop and enhance brain-sensing and brain-stimulating platform technologies to enable treatment of drug-resistant epilepsy.
UC San Diego is one of six universities invited to participate in the Wu Tsai Human Performance Alliance, a scientific collaboration that aims to transform human health on a global scale through the discovery and translation of the biological principles underlying human performance.
Imagine describing a photograph of an oak tree growing in a meadow. Now imagine describing that same image while a section of your skull has been temporarily removed and a grid of sensors is resting directly on the surface of your brain.
Three members of the University of California San Diego community, including two professors and one professor emeritus, have been elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences—one of the oldest and most esteemed honorary societies in the nation.
A materials engineer at the University of California San Diego is leading the development of a new research platform for studying high-performance materials, in particular new materials that melt above 4000 degrees Celsius (C).
