National attention has been drawn to the plight of patients who have experienced the unintended side effects of prolonged ICU care such as memory loss and muscle weakness. Now, a research team led by UC San Diego have evaluated the employment impacts to ICU patients, with concerning findings.
A new power saving chip could significantly reduce or eliminate the need to replace batteries in Internet of Things (IoT) devices and wearables. The so-called wake-up receiver wakes up a device only when it needs to communicate and perform its function, saving on power use.
UC San Diego Health hospitals in Hillcrest and La Jolla have received grades of ‘A’ for excellence in safety and quality for the Fall 2019 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade report.
Scientists thought they knew everything there was to know about how and why bacterial cells moved around, but back-to-back articles in Nature by UC San Diego’s Terence Hwa reveal how little they understood bacteria movement en masse.
Of the 3.5 million breast cancer survivors in the US, 1 in 5 will be diagnosed with a painful swelling condition called lymphedema, which can occur as a consequence of lymph nodes being removed. UC San Diego Health now offers a novel surgical procedure to help prevent this debilitating condition.
A new computational method can measure the forces cells exert on each other by analyzing time-lapse videos of cell colonies. It could enable researchers to gain fundamental insights into what role intercellular forces play in cellular biology and how they differ in healthy and diseased states.
San Diego-based Predictive Science, Inc. this week released their first forecast for the 2019-2020 influenza season, which typically runs from November through March.
UC San Diego Health opens a new clinic in Eastlake that offers express care and imaging capabilities with primary care opening late 2019.
A new type of micromotor—powered by ultrasound and steered by magnets—can move around individual cells and microscopic particles in crowded environments without damaging them. It can also be controlled to move over 3D obstacles. The work could open up new possibilities for nanomedicine.
UC San Diego researchers are leading a collaborative effort to understand and develop methods to help rectify hidden biases in healthcare.
