About 30 delegates from UC San Diego’s Scripps Institution of Oceanography and the School of Global Policy and Strategy will be attending the 28th Conference of the Parties, or COP28, in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
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.
As the antibiotic-resistance crisis widens, researchers seek new therapies. To learn about intriguing viruses called bacteriophages that fight bacteria, an innovative first-year biology class led to new findings, co-led by 28 undergraduates, on how bacteriophages protect themselves against bacteria.
An international team of researchers has developed a handheld, non-invasive device that can detect biomarkers for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Diseases. The biosensor can also transmit the results wirelessly to a laptop or smartphone.
Rather than a slow, gradual process as Darwin envisioned, biologists can now see how evolutionary changes unfold on accelerated timescales. Using an arms race between bacteria and viruses, researchers are documenting complex evolutionary processes in simple laboratory flasks in only three weeks.
Researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine found that an increase in avocado consumption in Hispanic/Latino families resulted in significant increases in total physical activity. Such an effect may lead to beneficial outcomes at the population level.
