Theoretical chemists at UC San Diego mix molecules and light in optical cavities in a promising study recently published in the Cell Press journal Chem.
New research from scientists at the University of California San Diego and the University of Michigan has opened a new chapter in the story about what happens between two key metabolic enzymes, setting chemical biologists on their own path to a new understanding of fatty acid biosynthesis.
U.S. News & World Report today released its 2020 guidebook that ranks the nation’s top graduate programs and professional schools, giving high marks to UC San Diego’s innovative programs.
UC San Diego assistant professor in math is one of 126 Sloan Research Fellows in the U.S. and Canada recognized as among the most promising scientific researchers in her field.
A relaunch of the project involving citizen scientists coincides with an Astrophysical Journal Letters publication of an exciting new discovery that challenges the way astronomers think about the long-term evolution of planetary systems.
The National Academy of Engineering (NAE) has honored atmospheric chemist Kimberly Prather of the University of California San Diego with membership to its prestigious ranks.
Combining the biomolecules DNA and RNA, UC San Diego’s Thomas Hermann and his graduate students Alba Monferrer and Douglas Zhang created robust modules that facilitate the self-assembly of polygonal nanoshapes—really tiny triangles, squares, pentagons and hexagons measured at the nanometer scale.
Organic compounds from perfume, food, fabrics and soaps coat indoor surfaces. The film commonly found in our homes can impact the air we breathe and our health. Yet the details of how these compounds interact microscopically with indoor surfaces are not fully known. Researchers are learning more.
UC San Diego's Chancellor Pradeep K. Khosla and Professor Susan Taylor were named fellows of the National Academy of Inventors. They are part of the NAI’s 2018 cohort of 148 new fellows who have demonstrated a prolific spirit of innovation.
UC San Diego scientists have been granted $2 million to develop new methods for manufacturing products based on algae. Biologist Stephen Mayfield will lead efforts to develop novel platforms to produce biologically based monomers that will be used to manufacture renewable and biodegradable products.
