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.
A new study published late last year in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society used supercomputer simulations to explore molecular gas within and surrounding the intracluster medium, or the space between galaxies in a galaxy cluster.
Approximately one-quarter of patients who are prescribed opioids for chronic pain misuse them, with five to 10 percent developing an opioid use disorder or addiction. In a new study, UC San Diego researchers found that opioid dependence produced permanent changes in the brains of rats.
An international team of astronomers from UC San Diego, the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias and the University of Cambridge have detected large amounts of oxygen in the atmosphere of one of the oldest and most elementally depleted stars known as “J0815+4729.”
UC San Diego School of Medicine researchers identified several genetic switches, or transcription factors, that determine whether or not liver cells produce collagen — providing a new therapeutic target for liver fibrosis.
New research findings, published in Nature, by UC San Diego Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry Akif Tezcan offer a protein architecture that pushes the boundaries of synthetic protein design past what is considered state-of-the-art.
A research team from SDSC and institutes in Sweden and France have published a study on the OLIG2 inhibitor as a way to improve prognoses for brain cancer patients.
UC San Diego Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Professor Olivia Graeve has been inducted into the Academia Mexicana de Ciencias (Mexican Academy of Sciences or AMC). Graeve, a Tijuana native and UC San Diego alumna, is one of only three corresponding members inducted in 2019.
An international team of scientists has synthetically engineered mosquitoes that halt the transmission of the dengue virus. The development marks the first engineered approach in mosquitoes that targets the four known types of dengue, improving upon previous designs that addressed single strains.
