Researchers at UC San Diego School of Medicine have begun a pilot clinical trial to test the efficacy of using ultrasound to stimulate the spleen and reduce COVID-19-related inflammation, decreasing the length of hospital stays.
Computer scientists at the University of California San Diego have developed a more accurate navigation system that will allow robots to better negotiate busy clinical environments in general and emergency departments more specifically.
Scientists have developed a novel CRISPR-based genetic sensor called a “CopyCatcher” to detect instances in which a genetic element is copied precisely from one chromosome to another in cells of a fruit fly.
Researchers confirm effectiveness of early screening tool to identify infants with autism, prompting earlier treatment, but key is parental involvement.
Using a mouse model, researchers discover pivotal role of cholesterol in chronic pain often caused by chemotherapy, and propose novel therapy.
The San Diego Supercomputer Center and CERN team up and leverage an alliance with Strategic Blue, a UK-based Fintech company that helps organizations optimize procurement of cloud services.
UC San Diego engineers developed a device that could make it more convenient for people with diabetes to measure their blood glucose. The device can measure glucose in sweat with the touch of a fingertip, and then a personalized algorithm provides an accurate estimate of blood glucose levels.
Bukata is only the fourth woman in the U.S. to lead a health system’s orthopedic surgery department.
UC San Diego researchers report that one kind of perceptual learning can occur in memory-impaired persons who do not actually remember what they learned.
Researchers at UC San Diego have used gene therapy to prevent learning and memory loss in a mouse model of Alzheimer’s disease, a key step toward eventually testing the approach in humans with the neurodegenerative disease.
