Scripps Researchers to Explore Deep-Sea Methane Seeps in Alvin Submersible

July 18, 2023

UC San Diego Scripps Institution of Oceanography professor emerita Lisa Levin is set to explore the poorly understood deep-sea ecosystems surrounding methane seeps off the coast of Southern California using the Alvin human-occupied submersible.

Robotic Hand Rotates Objects Using Touch, Not Vision

July 25, 2023

Inspired by the effortless way humans handle objects without seeing them, a team led by UC San Diego engineers has developed a new approach that enables a robotic hand to rotate objects solely through touch, without relying on vision.

New Algorithm Reveals Extremely High Mutations Rates in Complex Genomic Regions

August 16, 2023

In a paper published this week in the journal Nature Methods, UC San Diego researchers shared a new UniAligner algorithm for comparing highly repetitive genomic regions.

Intermittent Fasting Improves Alzheimer’s Pathology

August 21, 2023

New results from researchers at UC San Diego School of Medicine suggest that intermittent fasting could be an effective treatment approach for Alzheimer’s disease. Mice fed on a time-restricted schedule had better memory and less accumulation of amyloid proteins in the brain compared to controls.

Tritonlytics Team member Wayde Gilliam shares how he brought this passion for AI to the university, creating tools that help the team focus on the most important aspects of their work, including the Staff@Work Survey which runs now through September 15.

Interns with UC San Diego NeuroDiversity in Tech Program Find Community at the Qualcomm Institute

September 14, 2023

Interns with the UC San Diego Qualcomm Institute’s NeuroDiversity in Tech program learn the skills to thrive in the technology industry.

Going Viral

November 2, 2023

Rommie Amaro, professor of molecular biology at UC San Diego, and her team use computers to investigate biological systems. Last year, their atomic-level computational model of the H1N1 influenza virus revealed vulnerabilities that could lead to more effective and longer-lasting flu vaccines.

New Energy-storing Material Could Also Be Used To Build Electronic Gadgets

October 5, 2023

Gadgets and vehicles powered by the very materials they’re built from may soon be possible, thanks to a new structural supercapacitor developed by UC San Diego engineers. The device doubles as structural support and energy storage, potentially adding more energy capacity without adding weight.

Wireless, Battery-free Electronic ‘Stickers’ Gauge Forces Between Touching Objects

October 10, 2023

Engineers developed electronic “stickers” that measure the force exerted by one object upon another. The force stickers are wireless, run without batteries and fit in tight spaces, making them versatile for a wide range of applications, from surgical robots to smart implants and inventory tracking.

Novel Device from UC San Diego Researchers Promotes Efficient, Real-Time and Secure Wireless Access

October 26, 2023

Researchers from the lab of UC San Diego Qualcomm Institute affiliate and Jacobs School of Engineering faculty member Dinesh Bharadia created new technology for more accessible wireless connectivity.
