Two Studies Seek to Go Beyond the GIST of Intestinal Tract Cancer

August 24, 2021

UC San Diego researchers identify the mutational drivers for gastrointestinal stroma tumors in the stomach and find a potential drug to treat a subset of GIST tumors afflicting the young.

Early Biomarker for Pancreatic Cancer Identified

May 15, 2012

Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and Moores Cancer Center have identified a new biomarker and therapeutic target for pancreatic cancer, an often-fatal disease for which there is currently no reliable method for early detection or therapeutic intervention.

In Life and Death, Alzheimer’s Disease Looks Different among Hispanic Patients

January 24, 2019

Researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine report that autopsies of patients diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease when they were alive — and confirmed by autopsy — indicate many cognitive issues symptomatic of the condition are less noticeable in living Hispanic patients.

Mutational Signature Linking Bladder Cancer and Tobacco Smoking Found With New AI Tool

September 26, 2022

UC San Diego researchers have for the first time discovered a pattern of DNA mutations that links bladder cancer to tobacco smoking. The work could help identify what environmental factors, such as exposure to tobacco smoke and UV radiation, cause cancer in certain patients.

How Brain Tumors Turn Immune Cells into Cancer-Growing Hostages

April 19, 2021

Researchers discover that brain cancer tumors reprogram immune cells to help them grow, rather than suppress them.

Cancer Avatars for Personalized Medicine

May 21, 2014

Researchers at University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and Moores Cancer Center have used computer simulations of cancer cells – cancer avatars – to identify drugs most likely to kill cancer cells isolated from patients’ brain tumors.

Single-Cell Atlas of the Human Kidney Provides New Resources To Study Kidney Disease

July 19, 2023

What causes certain individuals who experience a sudden decline in kidney function to develop kidney disease while others recover? A new study co-led by UC San Diego bioengineers could provide insight—at the single-cell level—into the underlying factors contributing to these divergent outcomes.

New Precision Immunotherapy Clinic Matches Patients to Latest Cancer Therapies

October 17, 2019

…Precision Immunotherapy Clinic Matches Patients to Latest Cancer Therapies Using a personalized approach, Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego Health employs genetic profiling to treat patients who have not responded to, or relapsed from, standard treatments A third occurrence of colon cancer and a failed immunotherapy clinical trial left…

Understudied Mutations Have Big Impact on Gene Expression

April 8, 2021

An international team of researchers led by computer scientists at the University of California San Diego have identified 163 variable number tandem repeats that actively regulate gene expression. In a Nature Communications paper, the researchers provide new insights into this understudied mechanism
