“We have never seen anything like this in the 24 years we have studied the supermassive black hole,” said UCLA professor Andrea Ghez.
Research shows that certain gut bacteria can respond to serotonin and drugs that influence serotonin, like anti-depressants. The biologists call this a unique form of communication between bacteria and cells.
The invention relies in part on another UCLA invention, photonic time stretch.
The approach could offer a way to manufacture more effective filters that use high-performance plastics and carbon materials.
Their findings could lead to new methods to get the body's repair enzyme to work better.
Of mice that received high doses of radiation, nearly all that received a compound developed by UCLA scientists survived.
Research brief: The team developed an approach to visualizing structure called microcrystal electron diffraction, which allowed the researchers to confirm how the newly discovered molecular assembly pathway works.
Does the physicist’s theory tell the full story? A detailed analysis of a star’s orbit near supermassive black hole gives a look into how gravity behaves.
The research addresses a longstanding question: Why does the moon have so much less ice than Mercury, despite their similar surface conditions?
When fathers are involved in the care of their children, men and women are more upset about infidelities, according to the UCLA-led cross-cultural research.
Q&A with professor Jonathan Stewart about what the team he organized learned in the aftermath of the Ridgecrest earthquakes.
The researchers' study builds on their discovery last year of a gene called mEAK-7, which is important for cell proliferation and migration.
Results of the UCLA-led study contradict a long-held classical theory.
Dr. Zhijian (James) Chen of the UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas is the recipient. Chen has performed groundbreaking work on the mechanisms underlying the cellular response to infection.
The bequest by Sidney Roberts and Clara Szego Roberts reflects the couple’s backgrounds — both benefited from college scholarships — and their passion for science and the arts.
The UCLA team's results could lead to ways to improve antiviral therapy.
UCLA researchers have developed a much faster and more accurate method to evaluate the formation of a bacterial community, known as a microbiome.
High pressure deep inside the young Earth may have driven vast stores of carbon into the planet’s core while also setting the stage for diamonds to form.
The development by a UCLA-led research team works to keep blood sugar at normal levels.
Magnetic pump built by Bruin Space launches on Blue Origin reusable rocket.
Johnson was elected in recognition of her “distinguished and continuing achievements in original research.”
In tests, perovskite-based cells made with the same chemical found in coffee maintained their power conversion efficiency for several weeks longer than those without it.
Research on 144 countries reveals the opportunities and pitfalls of this fast-growing sector.
The UCLA-led group has created an online resource guide to help scientists in lower-income countries jumpstart research programs.
UCLA professor Kent Hill said the new insights could apply to other disease-causing parasites as well, including those that cause Chagas disease.
