UC San Diego scientists have completed the first study in humans demonstrating that a common algae improves gastrointestinal issues related to irritable bowel syndrome. The green, single-celled organism called Chlamydomonas reinhardtii was found to help with diarrhea, gas and bloating.
A new study published late last year in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society used supercomputer simulations to explore molecular gas within and surrounding the intracluster medium, or the space between galaxies in a galaxy cluster.
An international team of astronomers from UC San Diego, the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias and the University of Cambridge have detected large amounts of oxygen in the atmosphere of one of the oldest and most elementally depleted stars known as “J0815+4729.”
New research findings, published in Nature, by UC San Diego Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry Akif Tezcan offer a protein architecture that pushes the boundaries of synthetic protein design past what is considered state-of-the-art.
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.
An international team of scientists has synthetically engineered mosquitoes that halt the transmission of the dengue virus. The development marks the first engineered approach in mosquitoes that targets the four known types of dengue, improving upon previous designs that addressed single strains.
The American Association for Thoracic Surgery (AATS) has adopted an open-source, cloud-based platform led out of the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) that addresses widely recognized challenges with historical platforms throughout the cardiothoracic surgical community.
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.
The Rady School of Management at the University of California San Diego has launched a FlexWeekend Master of Science in Business Analytics (FlexWeekend MSBA) degree program.
