Computational studies performed at UC San Diego suggest a set of genes regulating immune response help determine robustness and durability of neutralizing antibodies for COVID-19
A new tool for monitoring COVID-19 may one day be right under your nose. Researchers at the University of California San Diego are developing a color-changing test strip that can be stuck on a mask and used to detect SARS-CoV-2 in a user’s breath or saliva.
Visualizations using SDSC’s 'Comet' system at UC San Diego lead to an important viral inhibitor discovery
Discovery opens new possibilities for treating COVID-19 by disrupting virus’ ability to bind the carbohydrate, potentially by using a repurposed drug
Forehead injection of botox is currently being tested in clinical trials for its ability to treat depression by UC San Diego researchers
Researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine and UC San Diego Health have launched a clinical trial to assess the safety and efficacy of convalescent plasma (CP) to prevent COVID-19 after a known exposure to the virus
UC San Diego will be the site for a national clinical trial to assess the efficacy of a vaccine intended to protect against SARS-CoV-2
Researchers at University of California San Diego’s Division of Biological Sciences have discovered a critical “on-off” switch in the plant immune response system
Respiratory droplets from a cough or sneeze travel farther and last longer in humid, cold climates than in hot, dry ones, according to a study on droplet physics by an international team of engineers.
Motivated by the prospect of creating protective, social-distancing “bubbles” around members of the public, researchers in the UC San Diego Wireless Communications Sensing and Networking Laboratory are developing BluBLE, a new app for contact tracing during the COVID-19 pandemic.
