Blood Testing Identifies Biomarkers of Suicidal Thoughts

December 15, 2023

Researchers from University of California San Diego have found that people with depression and suicidal ideation have compounds in their blood that could help identify people at higher risk of becoming suicidal. They also found sex-based differences in how depression impacts metabolism.

Mapping the Mouse Brain Helps Reveal What Makes Us Human

December 14, 2023

As part of a national initiative better understand how the brain works, researchers from UC San Diego have analyzed more than 2.3 million individual brain cells from mice to create a comprehensive map of the mouse brain.

Enzymes Can’t Tell Artificial DNA From the Real Thing

December 13, 2023

Researchers from UC San Diego have come one step closer to unlocking the potential of synthetic DNA, which could help scientists develop never-before-seen proteins in the lab.

Medicare is Overpaying for Generic Drugs

December 5, 2023

Researchers from the University of California San Diego, West Health, and the University of Washington have found evidence that the private insurers that sponsor Medicare Part D are artificially inflating the costs of certain generic drugs by overpaying pharmacies.

Breaking Down Barriers: What Happens When the Vaginal Microbiome Attacks

November 29, 2023

New findings from researchers at University of California San Diego shed light on why bacterial vaginosis, a common and seemingly benign condition of the vaginal microbiome, is linked to pregnancy loss, preterm birth and other health complications.

Introducing EUGENe: An Easy-to-Use Deep Learning Genomics Software

November 16, 2023

Researchers from UC San Diego have developed an easily-implemented toolkit for genomics researchers that simplifies the process of analyzing data with deep learning, a type of artificial intelligence capable of improving itself with limited user input.

New Studies of Brain Activity Explain Benefits of Electroconvulsive Therapy

November 16, 2023

Researchers from UC San Diego have shed new light on why electroconvulsive therapy has such a high success rate, a mystery that has puzzled doctors and scientists for almost a century. Findings could help improve this controversial treatment.

New Cancer Therapy Target Stops Tumor Cells From Sharing Resources

October 17, 2023

Researchers at University of California San Diego have discovered a process in which liver cells share molecules in order to multiply under conditions that would ordinarily suppress cell proliferation. They also found evidence that this process occurs in various types of cancer cells.

New Biomarker Predicts Whether Neurons Will Regenerate

October 16, 2023

Researchers from University of California San Diego have identified a new biomarker that can predict whether or not neurons will regenerate after an injury. The findings could help scientists develop regenerative therapies for spinal cord injuries and other neurological conditions.

Human Brain Cell Atlas Offers Unprecedented Look at Neuropsychiatric Disorders

October 13, 2023

In a large, multi-institutional effort led by University of California San Diego, researchers have analyzed more than a million human brain cells and revealed links between specific types of cells and various common neuropsychiatric disorders.
