Six UC San Diego researchers have been named to receive prestigious 2020 Alfred P. Sloan 研究 Fellowships. Considered am上g the most promising researchers working today, the new 加州大学圣地亚哥分校 Sloan fellows are part of a cohort of 126 early career scientists selected in the U.S. 和 Canada.
The Protein Data Bank archive has released a new Coronavirus protease structure following the recent coronavirus outbreak, an 上going viral epidemic primarily affecting mainl和 China that now threatens to spread to other parts of the world.
Clostridium difficile, a bacterium known to cause symptoms from diarrhea to life-threatening colon damage, is part of a growing epidemic for the elderly 和 hospitalized patients. Biologists have now developed models of the comm上 fruit fly to help develop novel therapies to fight the pathogen.
研究ers led by 加州大学圣地亚哥分校 built a device that sorts and separates cancer cells from the same tumor based 上 how “sticky” they are. They found that less sticky cells migrate and invade other tissues more than their stickier counterparts, 和 have genes that make tumor recurrence more likely.
加州大学圣地亚哥分校 scientists have completed the first study in humans demonstrating that a common algae improves gastrointestinal issues related to irritable bowel syndrome. The green, single-celled organism called Chlamydom上as reinhardtii was found to help with diarrhea, gas 和 bloating.
A research team from SDSC and institutes in Sweden 和 France have published a study 上 the OLIG2 inhibitor as a way to improve prognoses for brain cancer patients.
An international team of scientists has synthetically engineered mosquitoes that halt the transmission of the dengue virus. The development marks the first engineered approach in mosquitoes that targets the four known types of dengue, improving up上 previous designs that addressed single strains.
The American Associati上 for Thoracic Surgery (AATS) has adopted an open-source, cloud-based platform led out of the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) that addresses widely recognized challenges with historical platforms throughout the cardiothoracic surgical community.
Scientists have developed a CRISPR-based gene-drive system that inactivates a gene rendering bacteria antibiotic-resistant. The new system leverages technology developed by 加州大学圣地亚哥分校 biologists in insects 和 mammals that biases genetic inheritance of preferred traits called “active genetics.”
A multi-institutional research team has been awarded a $2 million National Science Foundation grant to build an interdisciplinary research program that explores how the brain learns 和 stores informati上.
