Engineers at the University of California San Diego have developed a new method that doesn’t require any special equipment and works in just minutes to create soft, flexible, 3D-printed robots.
Researchers have 3D printed coral-inspired structures that are capable of growing dense populations of microscopic algae. The work could lead to the development of compact, more efficient bioreactors for producing algae-based biofuels, as well as new techniques to repair and restore coral reefs.
Famed astronomer Margaret Burbidge, whose stellar discoveries and contributions to astronomy and physics helped change our understanding of the universe, has died. The 100-year-old professor emeritus of physics at UC San Diego passed away peacefully at her home, her family at her side, on April 5.
Of the hundreds of coronaviruses known to exist, many are relatively harmless. Coronaviruses infect your nose, sinuses and upper throat but often result in nothing more than a common cold.
With help from med-tech company BD, UC San Diego’s Microsetta Initiative pivots from crowdsourced microbiome studies to coronavirus data collection.
UC San Diego’s world-renowned scholars in U.S.-China studies explain what’s at stake.
