A new study by SDSC researchers describes the use of artificial intelligence machine learning tools to demonstrate a potential RAGE inhibitor that has better efficacy and fewer side effects.
UC San Diego researchers discovered that high blood levels of RNA produced by the PHGDH gene could serve as a biomarker for early detection of Alzheimer’s. The work could lead to the development of a blood test to identify individuals who will develop the disease years before they show symptoms.
Rice University researchers used the Comet supercomputer at SDSC to evaluate their new molecular docking too to help improve cancer immunotherapy outcomes by identifying more effective personalized treatments.
Scientists, including UC San Diego researchers, recently relied on supercomputer simulations to better understand the reproductive mysteries of viruses and DNA.
The San Diego Supercomputer Center at UC San Diego has announced the launch of ‘HPC Share’, a data sharing resource that will enable users of the Center’s high-performance computing resources to easily transfer, share, and discuss their data within their research teams and beyond.
UC San Diego bioengineers developed a control system that could make CAR T-cell therapy safer and more powerful when treating cancer. By programming CAR T cells to switch on when exposed to blue light, the researchers controlled the cells to destroy skin tumors in mice without harming healthy tissue
Six UC San Diego researchers have been named to receive prestigious 2020 Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowships. Considered among the most promising researchers working today, the new UC San Diego Sloan fellows are part of a cohort of 126 early career scientists selected in the U.S. and Canada.
The Protein Data Bank archive has released a new Coronavirus protease structure following the recent coronavirus outbreak, an ongoing viral epidemic primarily affecting mainland China that now threatens to spread to other parts of the world.
Clostridium difficile, a bacterium known to cause symptoms from diarrhea to life-threatening colon damage, is part of a growing epidemic for the elderly and hospitalized patients. Biologists have now developed models of the common fruit fly to help develop novel therapies to fight the pathogen.
Researchers led by UC San Diego built a device that sorts and separates cancer cells from the same tumor based on how “sticky” they are. They found that less sticky cells migrate and invade other tissues more than their stickier counterparts, and have genes that make tumor recurrence more likely.
