Once a state legalizes recreational cannabis an increase in youth using it illegally occurs, report researchers at University of California San Diego Herbert Wertheim School of Public Health and Human Longevity Science.
UC San Diego engineers have developed a low cost, low power technology to help robots accurately map their way indoors, even in poor lighting and without recognizable landmarks or features. The technology uses WiFi signals, instead of light, to help the robot "see" where it’s going.
UC San Diego researchers fared well in this year’s Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative (MURI) competition, held annually by the Department of Defense. The DOD has announced MURI awards for two UC San Diego-led research teams and three teams of which UC San Diego researchers are a part.
Voyager, the experimental artificial intelligence compute resource newly installed at the San Diego Supercomputer Center, is ready for use. Sanctioned for production by the NSF, the high-performance/high-efficiency supercomputer located at UC San Diego is moving into its operational testbed phase.
People who are highly responsive to food lost more weight and kept it off using a new weight loss program that targets internal hunger cues and the ability to resist food, reports University of California San Diego Herbert Wertheim School of Public Health and Human Longevity Science.
Eligibility to CloudBank, the National Science Foundation (NSF)-funded program that provides access to and managed services for public cloud resources for research and education, has dramatically expanded—making it easier for users to gain access to its resources.
COVID-19, MIS-C and KD all share a similar underlying mechanism involving the over-activation of particular inflammatory pathways, UC San Diego study shows. Findings support novel drug targets for MIS-C.
UC San Diego study shows suicide rates were higher in pharmacists than in the general population between 2003 and 2018, with job problems being the most significant feature associated with the suicides.
University of California San Diego alumnus David Goeddel, ’72, and his wife Alena, have donated $7.5 million to drive leading-edge research, discovery and training in the UC San Diego School of Biological Sciences, which includes support for the newly named Goeddel Family Technology Sandbox.
An international team of researchers, led by scientists at UC San Diego, report that a gene therapy that inhibits targeted nerve cell signaling effectively reduced neuropathic pain with no detectable side effects in mice with spinal cord or peripheral nerve injuries.
