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 National Academy of Medicine (NAM) has announced that University of California San Diego Professor Susan Ackerman, a pioneer in the study of homeostasis in developing and aging neurons, has been elected to membership in the prestigious organization.
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.
UC San Diego chemical biology researchers achieve the first, efficient, enzyme-free, watery creation of natural phospholipids, opening new routes for lipid synthesis in artificial cells and providing insights for sustainable chemistry.
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.
Nobel Prize in Chemistry Awardee and Distinguished Professor Mario Molina will be remembered for dedicating his life to research and working to protect our environment.
UC San Diego’s Center for Energy Research has been awarded two grants from the Department of Energy for research focused on developing environment-friendly and cost-competitive energy sources and systems.
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.
Project focuses on lipids (fat molecules) as the starting point to understand the evolution of eukaryotic cells, carrying implications for human health and disease
UC San Diego scientists are providing new clues on how cells defend themselves from attack from viruses. The new study advance’s science’s understanding of interferons— proteins that help combat viruses like SARS-CoV-2—with possible implications for new clinical treatments.
