Two new studies led by scientists at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego highlight the significance of long-term observations for understanding ocean climate trends and events, including record-shattering marine heatwaves.
UC San Diego Health has deployed a mobile ECMO life support system to help sustain critically-ill patients during the pandemic.
South Korea is a standout in the current battle against COVID-19, largely due to its widespread testing and contact tracing; however, key to its innovation is publicly disclosing detailed information on the individuals who test positive for COVID-19.
UC San Diego researchers have identified small molecules in the blood of asymptomatic pregnant women that may predict risk for preeclampsia, responsible for a significant proportion of maternal and neonatal deaths, low birth weight and is a primary cause of premature birth.
Researchers from the Colorado School of Mines have been using multiple supercomputers, including SDSC's Comet system, to study certain characteristics of zirconia for wider applications of the super-strong material.
A collaboration between researchers at the University of California San Diego and the University of Washington that demonstrated the ability to hack a car is honored for its lasting impact
The NIH has launched a major clinical trial to assess the malaria drug hydroxychloroquine and antibiotic azithromycin as a treatment for COVID-19. The trial will recruit 2,000 participants at 30 sites. A Q&A with the trial’s team leader: Davey Smith, MD, of UC San Diego School of Medicine.
Using supercomputers, scientists have developed for the first time a way to screen drugs through their chemical structures for induced arrhythmias.
University of Texas at Austin researchers recently simulated the catalytic mechanism and atomic structure of nickel-doped graphene using SDSC's Comet supercomputer. The new process synthesizes valuable chemicals to use as electricity in lieu of fossil fuels.
Ruth S. Waterman, MD, has been named chair of the Department of Anesthesiology at University of California San Diego School of Medicine and UC San Diego Health.
