Southern California’s First Real-Time MRI-Guided Gene Therapy for Brain Cancer

August 6, 2013

Neurosurgeons at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center are among the first in the world to utilize real-time magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) guidance for delivery of gene therapy as a potential treatment for brain tumors.

Cannabis Use Disorder Rate Rose among Pregnant Women between 2001-2012

April 22, 2021

Babies born to mothers diagnosed with cannabis use disorder are more likely to experience negative health outcomes, such as preterm birth and low birth weight, than babies born to mothers without a cannabis use disorder diagnosis, report UC San Diego researchers.

SDSC’s Comet Supercomputer Used to Model Graphene-Water Interaction

July 9, 2019

NJIT Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Professor Dibakar Datta and his team used the Comet supercomputer at the San Diego Supercomputer Center to create simulations of graphene-water interactions to see if graphene is a good candidate for delivering medicine to specific parts of the body.

Chemical Disguise Transforms RNAi Drug Delivery

November 17, 2014

Researchers at University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have developed a way to chemically disguise RNAi drugs so that they are able to enter cells. Once inside, cellular machinery converts these disguised drug precursors — called siRNNs — into active RNAi drugs.

Nanobowls Offer a Way to Magnetically Deliver Drugs in the Body

August 3, 2016

…device that could transport drugs to any diseased site in the body with the help of a small magnet. Researchers at the University of California San Diego have taken a step toward that goal by developing nano-sized vessels, called nanobowls, that could be filled with drug molecules and controlled with…

Taking out the (Life-threatening) Garbage: Bacteria Eject Trash to Survive

September 27, 2018

Scientists have known that bacteria produce small spherical versions of themselves. Lacking basic materials to reproduce or function like normal cells, the natural role of minicells—which protrude like budding balloons off the ends of bacteria—has remained a mystery. Now, researchers at UC San Diego have demonstrated for the first time…

Nanospheres Safely Deliver High Chemotherapy Doses in Response to Tumor Secretions

July 14, 2015

Scientists have designed nanoparticles that release drugs in the presence of a class of proteins that enable cancers to metastasize. That is, they have engineered a drug delivery system so that the very enzymes that make cancers dangerous could instead guide their destruction.

Genetically Engineered Nanoparticle Delivers Dexamethasone Directly to Inflamed Lungs

June 16, 2021

Nanoengineers at the University of California San Diego have developed immune cell-mimicking nanoparticles that target inflammation in the lungs and deliver drugs directly where they’re needed.

Targeted Drug Delivery With These Nanoparticles Can Make Medicines More Effective

September 16, 2015

…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 increased the therapeutic effects of drugs administered to…

Stomach Acid-Powered Micromotors Get Their First Test in a Living Animal

January 28, 2015

…offer a safer and more efficient way to deliver drugs or diagnose tumors.
