Researchers at UC San Diego School of Medicine awarded $11.7 million by National Institutes of Health to identify genomic and socioeconomic factors contributing to health and disease in admixed individuals. The new center aims to bring the genomic revolution to all.
In a special issue of Nature, UC San Diego researchers further refine the organization of cells within key regions of the mouse brain and the organization of transcriptomic, epigenomic and regulatory factors that provide these brain cells with function and purpose.
In three Science papers, UC San Diego and UC San Francisco researchers mapped out how hundreds of gene mutations involved in cancer affect the discrete groups of proteins that are the ultimate actors behind the disease. The work points the way to identifying new precision treatments.
Washington investigated whether these computing systems could be hacked and how that would affect a driver's ability to control their car. Now the team has received the Golden Goose Award from the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
Researchers can predict what syllables a bird will sing—and when it will sing them—by reading electrical signals in its brain, reports a new study from the University of California San Diego. The work is an early step toward building vocal prostheses for humans who have lost the ability to speak.
A wireless technology that is helping people find their keys and wallets could one day be used for precise and real-time 3D motion capture, thanks to upgrades developed by electrical engineers at the University of California San Diego.
Using a virus that grows in black-eyed pea plants, researchers developed a new therapy that could keep metastatic cancers from spreading to the lungs, as well as treat established tumors in the lungs.
U.S. News & World Report has once again named the University of California San Diego among the best colleges in the country. Released today, the U.S. News & World Report 2022 Best Colleges rankings listed UC San Diego as the nation’s eighth best public university.
The National Institutes of Health has awarded a $12.25 million grant to the University of California San Diego to develop and enhance brain-sensing and brain-stimulating platform technologies to enable treatment of drug-resistant epilepsy.
