Study: E-Cigarettes Trigger Inflammation in the Gut

January 7, 2021

Chemicals used for vaping break down zipper-like junctions between cells in the gut, leading to chronic inflammation and potential for other health concerns.

Scientists Discover a New Signaling Pathway and Design a Novel Drug for Liver Fibrosis

April 25, 2024

Scientists from the University of California San Diego discovered a novel signaling pathway in liver cells, leading to a treatment for fibrosis.

UC San Diego Sociologist Named Hastings Center Fellow

February 15, 2024

John Evans, professor of sociology, Tata Chancellor’s Chair in Social Sciences and associate dean of the School of Social Sciences at the University of California San Diego, has been elected a fellow of the Hastings Center, which is the honorific society for the field of bioethics.

‘Monster Tumors’ Could Offer New Glimpse at Human Development

November 4, 2020

Finding just the right model to study human development—from the early embryonic stage onward—has been a challenge for scientists over the last decade. Now, bioengineers at the University of California San Diego have homed in on an unusual candidate: teratomas.

3D “Assembloid” Shows How SARS-CoV-2 Infects Brain Cells

July 16, 2021

Researchers at UC San Diego School of Medicine and Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine have produced a stem cell model that demonstrates a potential route of entry of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, into the human brain.

Rare Science

May 1, 2023

UC San Diego is a hub for rare disease research. Although each rare disease impacts a small number of people, the research findings sometimes apply to more prevalent conditions.

How Loss of Single Gene Fuels Deadly Childhood Brain Cancer

September 10, 2020

UC San Diego researchers describe how the functional loss of a single gene negatively impacts neural development and promotes the growth of a particularly deadly form of pediatric brain cancer.

Novel Stem Cell-Derived Model Created of Inflammatory Neurological Disorder

August 10, 2017

An international team of scientists, led by University of California San Diego School of Medicine researchers, has created a human stem cell-based model of a rare, but devastating, inherited neurological autoimmune condition called Aicardi-Goutieres Syndrome (AGS). In doing so, the team was able to identify unusual and surprising underlying genetic…

Appendiceal Cancer Gets Its Own Preclinical Model

November 1, 2022

Researchers at UC San Diego School of Medicine and Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego Health describe the first preclinical model of appendiceal cancer that contains all elements of the tumor, allowing previously stymied investigations to proceed.

Super Productive 3D Bioprinter Could Help Speed Up Drug Development

June 8, 2021

A new 3D bioprinter developed by UC San Diego nanoengineers operates at record speed—it can print a 96-well array of living human tissue samples within 30 minutes. The technology could help accelerate high-throughput preclinical drug screening and make it less costly.
