Because of silicon’s relatively high cost, hybrid organic-inorganic perovskites (HOIPs) have emerged as a lower-cost and highly efficient option for solar power, according to a study by Georgia Institute of Technology researchers.
UC San Diego researchers recently created a pharmacophore model and conducted data mining of the conformational database of FDA-approved drugs that identifies 64 compounds as potential inhibitors of the COVID-19 protease.
A research team from SDSC and institutes in Sweden and France have published a study on the OLIG2 inhibitor as a way to improve prognoses for brain cancer patients.
Scientists at the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) used SDSC’s Comet supercomputer to help model the formation of terrestrial planets such as Mercury, Venus, and Mars in a quest to explore if there are Earth-like planets outside our solar system.
A new study by researchers from several universities including UC San Diego, published earlier this month in ACS Central Science, suggests a novel approach to fighting the sometimes deadly influenza virus.
