The NSF Awards $5M to the San Diego Supercomputer Center for its Prototype National Research Platform, a first-of-its-kind cyberinfrastructure ecosystem intended to help science drivers expedite science and enable transformative discoveries.
Is there a "CalExodus"? A UC San Diego survey finds no increase, over 2019, in residents who say they plan to leave. A companion report analyzing Google trends data suggests they aren’t secretly searching for move-related terms either.
After a nationwide search, Cynthia Gyamfi-Bannerman, MD, has been named chair of the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology & Reproductive Sciences at University of California San Diego School of Medicine and UC San Diego Health.
Physics condensed matter experimentalist Chunhui Rita Du leverages imperfections in diamonds to investigate materials needed for a new era of computing and storage. New quantum materials are exotic substances that are allowing scientists to create novel technologies at previously unseen scales.
TigerGraph, provider of the leading graph analytics platform, today announced plans to open a research and development-focused center of innovation in San Diego and recruit from the area’s extensive technology talent pool and will partner with UC San Diego’s Halıcıoğlu Data Science Institute.
The Center for Perinatal Discovery at UC San Diego brings doctors and researchers together for clinical, translational and basic research to better understand maternal health, environmental exposures, fertility, pregnancy and the health of children.
The Biden administration has launched the National Artificial Intelligence Research Resource Task Force, on which San Diego Supercomputer Center Director and Physics Professor Michael Norman will participate to help democratize access to resources and tools that fuel AI research and development.
Renee Bowen, the Pastor Faculty Fellow at the University of California San Diego’s School of Global Policy and Strategy and the Department of Economics, has been selected to serve in the Biden administration as the senior economist for Trade with the Council of Economic Advisers (CEA).
Research reveals that phage viruses that undergo special evolutionary training increase their capacity to subdue bacteria. The results provide hope for the antibiotic resistance crisis, a rising threat as deadly bacteria continue to evolve to render many modern drugs ineffective.
Scientists have developed a gene drive with a built-in genetic barrier that is designed to keep the drive under control. The researchers engineered synthetic fly species that, upon release in sufficient numbers, act as gene drives that can spread locally and be reversed if desired.
