How Trauma Gets Under the Skin

April 15, 2024

Traumatic experiences in early childhood can cause metabolic changes that impact muscle function later in life, according to new research co-authored by UC San Diego professor Anthony Molina.

How to Speed Up Muscle Repair

March 17, 2021

By studying how different pluripotent stem cell lines build muscle, researchers have for the first time discovered how epigenetic mechanisms can be triggered to accelerate muscle cell growth, providing new insights for developing therapies for muscle disease, injury and atrophy.

Successful Dying: Researchers Define the Elements of a “Good Death”

March 30, 2016

For most people, the culmination of a good life is a “good death,” though what that means exactly is a matter of considerable consternation. Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine surveyed published, English-language, peer-reviewed reports of qualitative and quantitative studies defining a “good death,” ultimately…

Novel Approaches to Treating Alzheimer’s Disease Include Early Intervention

May 15, 2012

Researchers at the Comprehensive Alzheimer’s Program at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have announced two new clinical trials for patients with either mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and one trial for Mild Cognitive Impairment.

Lonely in a Crowd: Overcoming Loneliness with Acceptance and Wisdom

January 10, 2020

Researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine found the main characteristics of loneliness in a senior housing community and the strategies residents use to overcome it.

Too Much Sitting, Too Little Exercise May Accelerate Biological Aging

January 18, 2017

Researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine report that elderly women who sit for more than 10 hours a day with low physical activity have cells that are biologically older by eight years compared to women who are less sedentary.

Researchers Identify Gene with Functional Role in Aging of Eye

January 15, 2020

Researchers say a gene known to be a biomarker of age plays a key role in age-associated functional and anatomical aging in mouse retinas, a finding that has direct relevance to age-related eye diseases.

Air Pollution May Increase Risk of Dementia, Complicated by Genetics

May 2, 2023

UC San Diego researchers describe how exposure to ambient air pollution, such as car exhaust and power plant emissions — is associated with a measurably greater risk of developing dementia over time.

Polygenic Risk Score May Identify Alzheimer’s Risk in Younger Populations

March 5, 2018

For the first time, an international team of scientists, led by researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine, have determined that an Alzheimer’s disease (AD) polygenic risk score can be used to correctly identify adults with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) who were only in their 50s. MCI…

Physical Activity May Have a Stronger Role than Genes in Longevity

August 24, 2022

UC San Diego Herbert Wertheim School of Public Health and Human Longevity study asked whether associations between physical activity and sedentary time with death varied based on different levels of genetic predisposition for longevity.
