Five Jacobs School of Engineering graduate students conducting pioneering biomedical research have been named Siebel Scholars.
The U.S. News and World Report Best Colleges Guidebook ranks the University of California San Diego the nation’s 8th best public university, up two spots compared to last year. The school also ranks 15th among the best colleges for veterans for participating in federal initiatives helping veterans…
Bioengineers at UC San Diego have shown that human-genome produced RNA is present on the surface of human cells, suggesting a more expanded role for RNA in cell-to-cell and cell-to-environment interactions than previously thought.
Scientists at UC San Diego have discovered a new anode material that enables lithium-ion batteries to be safely recharged within minutes for thousands of cycles. It is promising for commercial applications where both high energy density and high power are desired.
The San Diego Supercomputer Center at UC San Diego, the University of Washington, and UC Berkeley have entered production operations of the National Science Foundation-funded CloudBank program, which aims to simplify the use of public clouds across computer science research and education.
The University of California San Diego has been named the fourth best public university in the United States for the second consecutive year by the 2020 Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU).
Nanoengineers at UC San Diego developed a new method to fabricate perovskites as single-crystal thin films, which are more efficient for use in solar cells and optical devices than the current state-of-the-art polycrystalline forms of the material.
Materials scientists studying battery recharging fundamentals made an astonishing discovery that could open the door to better batteries, faster catalysts and other materials science leaps.
Engineers have incorporated a new understanding of the impact of environmental factors on droplet spread into a mathematical model that can be used to predict the early spread of respiratory viruses including COVID-19, and the role of respiratory droplets in that spread.
From mRNA vaccines entering clinical trials, to peptide-based vaccines and using molecular farming to scale vaccine production, the COVID-19 pandemic is pushing new and emerging nanotechnologies into the frontlines and the headlines.
