Bill Nye, as everyone knows, is The Science Guy-a self-described science nerd with a bow tie whose PBS television show in the late 1990s inspired a generation of millennials to study math and consider careers as scientists and engineers.
A new institute at UC San Diego, which will be celebrated tomorrow at a campus dedication, is building on the university's strengths of multidisciplinary collaboration and data science to allow researchers across the campus to incorporate data science into their respective disciplines to better understand…
The first datasets from the largest long-term study of brain development and child health in the United States—a project headed by a team of scientists at UC San Diego—were released to researchers around the world today by the National Institutes of Health.
A team of researchers at UC San Diego and San Diego State University has developed a pair of “4-D goggles” that allows wearers to be physically “touched” by a movie when they see a looming object on the screen, such as an approaching spacecraft.
Thirty two faculty members at the University of California San Diego are among the world’s most influential researchers in their fields, based on their publications over the past decade.
More than a decade ago, Stuart Brody dreamed about starting a new kind of research center at UC San Diego. It would bring biologists like himself working to understand the circadian rhythms of various kinds of organisms—from bacteria and plants to fruit flies and roundworms—together with researchers…
Two years after University of California President Janet Napolitano and Gov. Jerry Brown met here with scientists and legislators to set the UC system on its path to become carbon neutral by 2025, many of the details of how to accomplish that ambitious goal still need to be worked out.
For Elizabeth Villa, 2017 was a banner year. Earlier this year, the biophysicist and assistant professor of molecular biology received her first of four years of research funding from the Pew Charitable Trusts following her selection last fall as a Pew scholar. Villa was one of only 22 early-career biomedical…
Six of the top 10 research health science grants awarded to UC San Diego this year are led by women. And Christina Chambers, a professor of pediatrics at UC San Diego’s School of Medicine, heads four of those projects, which pulled in a grand total of $25.24 million.
