New study finds gene therapy improved cardiac, muscle and liver function in Danon disease mouse models.
U.S. News & World Report today released its 2021 guidebook that ranks the nation’s top graduate programs and professional schools, giving praise to the University of California San Diego’s innovative programs, including the campus’ Jacobs School of Engineering and School of Medicine.
UC San Diego researchers have developed a computational tool that makes modeling and simulation of complex cellular processes more true to life. The tool, dubbed GAMer 2, simplifies the process of using realistic cell geometries in mathematical models.
UC San Diego researchers discover the enzyme SPRK1’s role in reorganizing the paternal genome during the first moments of fertilization — a finding that might help explain infertility cases of unknown cause.
UC San Diego nanoengineers offer a research roadmap describing four challenges that need to be addressed in order to advance a promising class of batteries, all-solid-state batteries, to commercialization. The researchers describe their work to tackle these challenges over the past three years.
Researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine have discovered differences in brain circuitry that contribute to starvation and weight loss in people with anorexia nervosa.
UC San Diego nanoengineers developed a safety feature that prevents lithium metal batteries from rapidly overheating and catching fire in case of an internal short circuit. The clever tweak does not prevent battery failure, but rather provides advance warning of failure and makes it much safer.
From a simple blood draw, microbial DNA may reveal who has cancer and which type, even at early stages.
The San Diego Supercomputer Center at UC San Diego has announced the launch of ‘HPC Share’, a data sharing resource that will enable users of the Center’s high-performance computing resources to easily transfer, share, and discuss their data within their research teams and beyond.
Astronomers working on “first light” data from a newly commissioned telescope in Chile made a chance discovery that led to the identification of a rare eclipse of two brown dwarfs. The result published today in the journal Nature Astronomy.
