An advanced imaging technology developed at UC San Diego is allowing scientists unprecedented access into brain activities during intricate behaviors. The “Flyception2” has produced the first-ever picture of what happens in the brain during mating in any organism.
Researchers at Oregon State University have been using the Comet supercomputer at SDSC to test an algorithm they believe will reduce errors in the widely used three-day forecasts for water temperature, salinity levels, sea heights, and currents off the Oregon and Washington coasts.
In the first national study of its size, researchers at UC San Diego have found that nurses are at higher risk of suicide than the general population. Results were published in the February edition of WORLDviews on Evidence Based-Nursing.
Researchers led by UC San Diego built a device that sorts and separates cancer cells from the same tumor based on how “sticky” they are. They found that less sticky cells migrate and invade other tissues more than their stickier counterparts, and have genes that make tumor recurrence more likely.
Micromotors that swim to infected sites in the body to lure, trap and destroy bacteria could offer a more efficient form of treatment against pathogens. UC San Diego nanoengineers have developed a “microtrap” that zips around in acid and serves as toxic bait for E. coli bacteria.
UC San Diego Health launches pilot project using drones to move medical samples, supplies and documents between Jacobs Medical Center, Moores Cancer Center and the Center for Advanced Laboratory Medicine, speeding delivery of services and patient care currently managed through ground transport.
Researchers at UC San Diego School of Medicine, with colleagues, describe a new method for delivering neural precursor cells to spinal cord injuries in rats, reducing the risk of further injury and boosting the propagation of potentially reparative cells.
University of California San Diego School of Medicine researchers created a new type of brain cancer model for glioblastoma using stem cells, CRISPR and gene sequencing.
On February 7 and 8, UC San Diego will host the Cultured Data Symposium, bringing together experts from data science and the arts and humanities to examine the emerging relationship between data and culture.
UC San Diego scientists have completed the first study in humans demonstrating that a common algae improves gastrointestinal issues related to irritable bowel syndrome. The green, single-celled organism called Chlamydomonas reinhardtii was found to help with diarrhea, gas and bloating.
