University of California San Diego School of Medicine scientists say the loss of a single gene two to three million years ago in our ancestors may have resulted in a heightened risk of cardiovascular disease in all humans as a species, while also setting up a further risk for red meat-eating humans.
The T. Denny Sanford Institute for Empathy and Compassion at UC San Diego will investigate the neurological basis of compassion, design a compassion-focused medical curriculum and develop new methods to protect and promote the well-being of current clinicians and their patients.
The San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at UC San Diego has been awarded a five-year grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) worth $10 million to deploy Expanse, a new supercomputer designed to advance research that is increasingly dependent upon heterogeneous and distributed resources.
NJIT Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Professor Dibakar Datta and his team used the Comet supercomputer at the San Diego Supercomputer Center to create simulations of graphene-water interactions to see if graphene is a good candidate for delivering medicine to specific parts of the body.
Bladder cancer, one of the most common cancers in the U.S., may be soon helped by a novel non-invasive diagnostic method thanks to machine learning research by researchers at UC San Diego's San Diego Supercomputer Center and Moores Cancer Center.
UC San Diego School of Medicine researchers identified chemical compounds that prevent stress-induced clumping of TDP-43 protein in ALS motor neurons grown in the lab — a starting point for new ALS therapeutics.
New partnership joins university's data science hub with leading communications firm collaborating on establishing educational and research connections as well as increased opportunities for students
Four UC San Diego students are the recipients of the 2019 Undergraduate Library Research Prize. Now in its 13th year, the annual award recognizes the outstanding scholarly work of undergraduate students who demonstrate strategic use of Library services and resources.
Two UC San Diego undergraduate students were named Donald A. Strauss Foundation Public Service Scholars, and were awarded a $15,000 prize to pursue their social change and public service projects.
Biologists have provided the first example of cargo within bacteriophage cells transiting along treadmill-like structures. The discovery demonstrates that bacteria have more in common with sophisticated human cells than previously believed.
