‘Simple’ Bacteria Found to Organize in Elaborate Patterns

January 6, 2022

Researchers have discovered that communities of bacteria are far more advanced than previously believed. Scientists found that cells within these communities are organized in elaborate patterns, a feature previously associated with higher-level organisms such as plants and animals.

Physicists Apply FAIRness to Data Studies

February 15, 2022

For scientists in observational disciplines, data is the lifeblood of research. Collecting, organizing and sharing data both within and across fields drives pivotal discoveries that benefit society and help make it more secure. 

Scientists Discover How Molecule Becomes Anticancer Weapon

March 21, 2022

Years of toil in the laboratory have revealed how a marine bacterium makes a potent anti-cancer molecule. Researchers at UC San Diego’s Scripps Institution of Oceanography found that an enzyme called SalC assembles what the team calls the salinosporamide anti-cancer “warhead.”

Researchers Manipulate Demographic of Bacterial Community with Novel Electronic Technology

May 4, 2022

Using second-long electrical shocks, UC San Diego scientists were able to control the types of cells in a community of bacteria. Being able to direct the ratio of cells holds implications for settings spanning agriculture to health care, where antibiotic resistance is a significant threat.

Plant Virus Plus Immune Cell-Activating Antibody Clear Colon Cancer in Mice, Prevent Recurrence

June 21, 2022

A new combination therapy to combat cancer could one day consist of a plant virus and an antibody that activates the immune system’s “natural killer” cells, shows a study by UC San Diego researchers. In mouse models of colon cancer, the therapy eliminated all tumors and prevented their recurrence.

UC San Diego’s Newest Class Makes an Entrance

September 22, 2022

This week marks the beginning of classes, and the campus is abuzz with the addition of about 9,500 first-year students who are ready to use their diverse talents and ambitions to enhance the UC San Diego community.

Tiny Swimming Robots Treat Deadly Pneumonia in Mice

September 22, 2022

UC San Diego engineers developed microrobots, that can swim around in the lungs, deliver medication and be used to clear up life-threatening cases of bacterial pneumonia. In mice, the microrobots safely eliminated pneumonia-causing bacteria in the lungs and resulted in 100% survival.

UC San Diego’s Scripps Oceanography Awarded $5.6 Million for DDT Ocean Dumpsite Research

September 26, 2022

New congressionally-directed funding awarding $5.6 million to Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego will aim to improve characterization of the extent of the dumpsite, and support additional monitoring and research.

Diving into Seabird Science

October 20, 2022

Growing up in a rural Southern California town in the 1990s, Tammy Russell didn’t know any scientists, but she started dreaming about a future in marine science. Fast forward to 2022, and Russell is now living out her childhood dreams as a PhD student at Scripps Institution of Oceanography.

UC San Diego Leads $50.5M Center for Computing

January 5, 2023

Researchers led by UC San Diego computer scientist Tajana Simunic-Rosing have entered in a $35 million contract from the Semiconductor Research Corporation to make computing orders of magnitude faster and more efficient. A group of 10 universities will band together to create the PRISM center.
