American Association for the Advancement of Science honors the contributions of UC San Diego leaders in astrophysics, research advocacy, organic chemistry, psychiatry and geophysics.
Computational Chemist Rommie Amaro, members of her lab win one of the most coveted awards in supercomputing for research related to COVID-19
The San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California San Diego received two HPCwire awards for 2020, including ‘Best Use of HPC (High-Performance Computing) in the Cloud’, and ‘Best Use of HPC in Energy’.
SDSC is part of a multi-year NSF award to harness the computing capacity of thousands of computers assembled in a network of campus clusters to substantially cut time to science results that might take years to be done in days, especially for applications that are parallel by design.
Research proposals by Professors Michael Burkart and Jon Pokorski were selected for funding as part of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Plastics Innovation Challenge to accelerate energy-efficient plastics recycling technologies.
Research findings by UC San Diego’s Mark Thiemens and former Chancellor’s Dissertation Medalist Mang Lin narrow down the complex nitrogen cycles at work in the atmosphere, cryosphere, hydrosphere, and, potentially, the biosphere.
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.
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.
