UC San Diego researchers use experimental artificial intelligence system called DrugCell to predict the best approach to treating cancer. Only 4 percent of all cancer therapeutic drugs under development earn final approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
In a recent study, researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine found a seventh component of wisdom: spirituality.
Supercomputer simulations, done using resources at UC San Diego by researchers at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), show how oil dilutes under specific conditions, which may lead to more effective countermeasures against large oil spills.
The Mexico Violence Resource Project—a new initiative from the University of California San Diego’s Center for U.S.-Mexican Studies—was recently launched to provide policymakers and journalists analysis and information to better understand the complicated escalation of violence in Mexico.
Treatment with a peptide that mimics the naturally occurring protein GIV prevents immune overreaction and supports a mechanism critical for survival in mouse models of sepsis and colitis, according to a UC San Diego study.
Diverse teams across University of California San Diego, with collaborators elsewhere, have received two 5-year grants totaling $14.3 million from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Common Fund to continue their work as a 4D Nucleome Research Hub and Center.
Two research teams at UC San Diego School of Medicine sought to understand sedentary lifestyles, with one study finding that even light physical activity, including just standing, can benefit health, and the other that Americans are sitting too much.
The transport of nine types of plastics floating in Lake Erie was modeled in studies that used SDSC's Comet supercomputer to create a 3D model of invasive plastic particles.
UC San Diego School of Medicine researchers report that older adults are increasingly using cannabis to treat a variety of common health conditions, including pain, sleep disturbances and psychiatric conditions like anxiety and depression.
A team from the San Diego Supercomputer Center at UC San Diego contributed to a study led by the Vanderbilt Vaccine Center on T cell receptors, which play a vital role in alerting the adaptive immune system to mount an attack on invading foreign pathogens, including Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2.
