UC San Diego nanoengineering professor Joseph Wang will accept the 2012 Breyer Medal in person this Sunday, April 15, in Perth, Australia. The medal is the top Australian award in the field of electrochemistry, and it will be presented at the annual Royal Australian Chemical Institute (RACI) Electrochemistry Symposium.

Engineers talk VR, AI and nanotechnology at San Diego Comic-Con

July 21, 2017

It’s not every day that engineers get to speak side by side with the people behind hit movies and TV series. But that is exactly what two engineering faculty members are doing this week at Comic-Con in San Diego.

Macrophage Nanosponges Could Keep Sepsis In Check

January 4, 2018

Researchers at UC San Diego have developed macrophage “nanosponges”—nanoparticles cloaked in the cell membranes of macrophages—that can safely remove sepsis-causing molecules from the bloodstream. In lab tests, these macrophage nanosponges improved survival rates in mice with sepsis.

Nanoparticle Vaccine Could Curb Cancer Metastasis to Lungs by Targeting a Protein

October 18, 2023

UC San Diego engineers have developed an experimental vaccine that could prevent the spread of metastatic cancers to the lungs. Its success lies in targeting a protein known to play a central role in cancer growth and spread, rather than targeting the primary tumor itself.

How Plant Viruses Can Be Used to Ward Off Pests and Keep Plants Healthy

May 20, 2019

Imagine a technology that could target pesticides to treat specific spots deep within the soil, making them more effective at controlling infestations while limiting their toxicity to the environment. Researchers at UC San Diego and Case Western Reserve University have taken a step toward that goal.

Four Researchers Recognized for Innovative, Transformative Work by NIH

October 2, 2018

Three researchers at the University of California San Diego have been selected to receive 2018 NIH Director’s New Innovator Awards. In addition, David Traver from the UC San Diego School of Medicine, has received an NIH Director’s Transformative award.

Engineering Undergraduates Use DNA Origami to Target Cancer

February 16, 2017

…to the field of nanomedicine and begin my journey to better the lives of others.” For Borum, the project has been a highlight of her time at UC San Diego. “Being a part of this team has been incredibly empowering,” she said. “I’m surrounded by students with polished communication skills…

Targeted Drug Delivery With These Nanoparticles Can Make Medicines More Effective

September 16, 2015

Nanoparticles disguised as human platelets could greatly enhance the healing power of drug treatments for cardiovascular disease and systemic bacterial infections. These nanoparticles are capable of delivering drugs to targeted sites in the body — particularly injured blood vessels and organs infected by harmful bacteria. This targeted drug delivery greatly…
