Researchers at Oregon State University have been using the Comet supercomputer at SDSC to test an algorithm they believe will reduce errors in the widely used three-day forecasts for water temperature, salinity levels, sea heights, and currents off the Oregon and Washington coasts.
In the first national study of its size, researchers at UC San Diego have found that nurses are at higher risk of suicide than the general population. Results were published in the February edition of WORLDviews on Evidence Based-Nursing.
Researchers led by UC San Diego built a device that sorts and separates cancer cells from the same tumor based on how “sticky” they are. They found that less sticky cells migrate and invade other tissues more than their stickier counterparts, and have genes that make tumor recurrence more likely.
