Across disciplines and specialties, from cells to systems, artificial intelligence is on its way to altering how we understand and treat disease.

Theoretical Physicist Olga Dudko Named American Physical Society Fellow

October 21, 2022

Olga Dudko, professor of Physics at the University of California San Diego, has been named an American Physical Society (APS) Fellow. The fellowship is a distinct honor — each year, no more than 0.5% of APS’s membership is recognized by their peers for election to the status of fellow.

Libraries Primed to Play Integral Role in Preventing the Spread of Health Misinformation

February 21, 2023

The San Diego Circuit libraries (Circuit), a consortium of six prominent academic and public libraries, has announced the availability of a campaign website designed to help community members identify and protect themselves from health misinformation.

Like Language, Genomes Are Encoded by Grammar Rules

March 10, 2023

A study led by Assistant Professor Emma Farley and two graduate students has found that developing genomes not only follow a precise pattern of expression, but the process is governed by rules that are similar to the ways in which grammar systematically structures our languages.

Artificial Intelligence Catalyzes Gene Activation Research and Uncovers Rare DNA Sequences

May 18, 2023

Biologists have used machine learning, a type of AI, to identify “synthetic extreme” DNA sequences with specifically designed functions in gene activation. They tested 50 million DNA sequences and found synthetic DNA sequences with activities that could be useful in biotechnology and medicine.

New Sports Medicine Procedure Heals Runner’s Heel

July 25, 2023

UC San Diego Health offers new minimally invasive sports medicine treatment to repair tendon overuse injuries.

UC San Diego Neurosurgery Chair Named President of Congress of Neurological Surgeons

September 12, 2023

Marking a historic first for the University of California, Alexander Khalessi, MD, MBA, chair of neurological surgery, has assumed the presidency of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons, the leading academic society for neurosurgical professionals with more than 10,000 members worldwide.

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.
