Zea Borok, MD, has been named chair of the Department of Medicine at University of California San Diego School of Medicine. Her first day is April 1, 2021.
Using molecular dating tools and epidemiological simulations, researchers at UC San Diego School of Medicine estimate that the SARS-CoV-2 virus likely circulated undetected for two months before the first human cases of COVID-19 were described in Wuhan, China in late-December 2019.
The partnership between Intel and the Halıcıoğlu Data Science Institute (HDSI) at UC San Diego offers an opportunity for Intel to acquire new methodologies while helping students with applied, technical understanding and real-world experience.
Researchers at UC San Diego School of Medicine and Moores Cancer Center describe how pancreatic cancer cells use an alternative method to find necessary nutrients, defying current therapies, to help them grow and spread.
Neural network training could one day require less computing power and hardware, thanks to a new nanodevice that can run neural network computations using 100 to 1000 times less energy and area than existing CMOS-based hardware.
By studying how different pluripotent stem cell lines build muscle, researchers have for the first time discovered how epigenetic mechanisms can be triggered to accelerate muscle cell growth, providing new insights for developing therapies for muscle disease, injury and atrophy.
In order to build and sustain a more robust innovation ecosystem, University of California San Diego is the first University of California campus to establish a chapter of the National Academy of Inventors (NAI).
Since 2009, Daniel Tward and his collaborators at UCLA and Johns Hopkins University have analyzed more than 47,000 images of human brains via MRI Cloud—a gateway created to collect and share quantitative information from human brain images, including subtle changes in shape and cortical thickness.
A gene therapy for chronic pain could offer a safer, non-addictive alternative to opioids. By temporarily repressing a gene involved in sensing pain, the treatment increased pain tolerance in mice, lowered their sensitivity to pain and provided months of pain relief without causing numbness.
