Air Apparent: Using Bubbles to Reveal Fertility Problems

June 23, 2014

UC San Diego Health System’s doctors are the first fertility specialists in the county to use a new ultrasound technique to assess fallopian tubes by employing a mixture of saline and air bubbles that is less painful, avoids x-ray exposure and is more convenient to patients during an already vulnerable…

Noninvasive Test for Embryo Quality Could Streamline Fertility Treatment

January 10, 2024

Researchers from UC San Diego have developed a noninvasive approach for predicting the quality of lab-fertilized embryos using leftover culture medium.

Girdin One’s Loins

August 19, 2021

UC San Diego researchers detail how a ubiquitous signaling molecule plays a critical role in male fertility, orchestrating key steps that promote sperm motility, survival and fertilization success.

Center Brings Doctors, Scientists Together to Improve Health of Mother and Child

June 15, 2021

The Center for Perinatal Discovery at UC San Diego brings doctors and researchers together for clinical, translational and basic research to better understand maternal health, environmental exposures, fertility, pregnancy and the health of children.

The Trump Baby Bump Among Republicans After the 2016 Election

April 27, 2022

Republican-leaning counties saw a sharp rise in birth rates compared to Democratic-leaning counties after Donald J. Trump’s surprise win in the 2016 presidential election, reveals a forthcoming study from the University of California San Diego.

What Makes a Good Egg?

February 5, 2018

…ZFP36L2, the eggs appear ordinary, but they cannot be fertilized by sperm.

Target Identified For Rare Inherited Neurological Disease In Men

August 10, 2014

Researchers at University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have identified the mechanism by which a rare, inherited neurodegenerative disease causes often crippling muscle weakness in men, in addition to reduced fertility.

Researchers Find Fertility Genes Required for Sperm Stem Cells

September 27, 2016

The underlying cause of male infertility is unknown for 30 percent of cases. In a pair of new studies, researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine determined that the reproductive homeobox (RHOX) family of transcription factors — regulatory proteins that activate some genes and inactivate others —…

UC Researchers Pioneer More Effective Method of Blocking Malaria Transmission in Mosquitoes

November 3, 2020

UC scientists have made a major advance in the use of genetic technologies to control the transmission of malaria parasites. They employed a strategy known as population modification, which uses a CRISPR-Cas9 gene drive system to introduce genes preventing parasite transmission in mosquitoes.

New CRISPR-based Technology Developed to Control Pests with Precision-guided Genetics

January 8, 2019

Using CRISPR, researchers developed a way to suppress insects, including those that ravage crops and transmit deadly diseases. The technology alters genes for sex determination and fertility. When eggs are introduced, only sterile males emerge, resulting in a low-cost method of controlling pests.
