Leading the Way to Coastal Stewardship

May 3, 2014

…the San Diego Regional Water Quality Control Board engaged with scientists at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego, this week to set a course for enhanced collaboration among the region’s top environmental entities. The three groups share mutual goals of environmental stewardship, coastal protection and monitoring, and improved ocean…

Ultra-sensitive Lead Detector Could Significantly Improve Water Quality Monitoring

February 5, 2024

Engineers have developed an ultra-sensitive sensor made with graphene that can detect extraordinarily low concentrations of lead ions in water. The device achieves a record limit of detection of lead down to the femtomolar range, which is one million times more sensitive than previous technologies.

UC San Diego’s Scripps Oceanography Awarded Funding to Develop Pathogen Forecast Model

August 29, 2023

The state of California awarded UC San Diego’s Scripps Institution of Oceanography $3 million to develop a model to forecast the presence of pathogens in San Diego coastal and tidal waters.

New UC San Diego Biosensor Will Guard Water Supplies from Toxic Threats

March 11, 2014

Supported by a $953,958 grant from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), researchers at the University of California San Diego will develop a sophisticated new biosensor that can protect the nation’s water supplies from a wide range of toxins, including heavy metals and other poisons.

Clinical Trial Tests Tattoo Sensor as Needleless Glucose Monitor for Diabetes Patients

April 19, 2018

…Sensor as Needleless Glucose Monitor for Diabetes Patients Dr. Edward Chao is the principal investigator of a phase I clinical trial testing the accuracy of a needleless glucose monitor developed by University of California San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering researchers that adheres to the skin like a temporary tattoo…

Engineering Students Aim to Take 3D-Printed AUV to the Arctic

February 7, 2023

Undergraduate engineering students in the Yonder Deep student organization have found a way to sharpen their marine robotics skills while working toward solutions to the climate crisis. The organization aims to design and 3D print a low-cost, modular, and fully autonomous underwater vehicle.

Citizen Science Will Help Assess Effects of El Niño

November 5, 2015

As one of the largest El Niños in recent years continues to develop in the Pacific Ocean, Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego is calling on the public to help document a historic climate event.

Clinical Trial Tests Tattoo Sensor as Needleless Glucose Monitor for Diabetes Patients

April 19, 2018

For Angela Valdez, being diagnosed with diabetes was an awakening. The disorder ran in her family, but she didn’t think it would happen to her. And when it did, she acted by modifying her diet and physical activity. She was doing everything right - almost.

DNA Sequencing Used to Identify Thousands of Fish Eggs

August 26, 2015

Using DNA sequencing, researchers have accurately painted a clear picture of fish spawning activities in a marine protected area (MPA) and have created a baseline for continuing studies on the effects of climate variability on fish populations.

Engineers Take First Step Toward Flexible, Wearable, Tricoder-Like Device

May 23, 2016

…wearable device capable of monitoring both biochemical and electric signals in the human body. The Chem-Phys patch records electrocardiogram (EKG) heart signals and tracks levels of lactate, a biochemical that is a marker of physical effort, in real time. The device can be worn on the chest and communicates wirelessly…
