The association, which is the world’s largest scientific society, honored the UCLA faculty members for their efforts to advance science or its applications.
Scientists say their new hydrogel triggered an unexpected response by the immune system that led to more effective skin healing.
Researchers used a model of airway tissue created from human stem cells to understand the process on cellular level.
Nobel Prize winner Andrea Ghez will deliver the event’s keynote talk, focusing on her research about black holes.
Birthrates, marriage, gender roles will change dramatically in post-pandemic world, scientists predict
The longer COVID-19 continues, the more entrenched these psychological, social and societal changes are likely to be, the study authors suggest.
Research brief: Even successfully treated HIV-infected adults are at increased of many diseases more commonly associated with aging.
The research opens up the possibility of using drugs that simulate viruses to overcome immunotherapy resistance in melanoma.
The team will investigate the mechanisms of treatment resistance, laying the groundwork for new and improved combination therapies.
In pregnant mice, the maternal gut microbiata plays a key role in regulating which genes are activated in the growing brain, UCLA biologists say.
Research brief: In mice, a neural sequence in the brain's striatum acts like falling dominoes, allowing them to precisely measure short intervals.
In very early life, sleep helps build the brain’s infrastructure, but it then takes on an entirely new decluttering role, research shows.
Scientists hope new decontamination methods can help overcome the shortage of personal protective equipment during the COVID-19 crisis.
The method saves time and money and doesn't require sacrificing endangered animals. All that’s needed is a few ounces of water from their habitat.
Research brief: The UCLA findings raise concerns about antibody-based “immunity passports” and the potential for herd immunity.
Research brief: UCLA scientists have discovered that histones act as an enzyme that converts copper into a usable form for cells.
Two UCLA studies of ocean mollusks shed light on how new species may emerge through a phenomenon known as host-switching.
A single protein may determine the size of scars, scientists say. Larger scars heighten the risk of future death from heart failure.
Research brief: The advance could accelerate large-scale testing and diagnosis of people with genetic and metabolic disorders.
Researchers also found that cognitive behavior therapy was the most effective approach for boosting the immune system.
Johnson, whose research focuses on understanding mechanisms of gene regulation, will take the helm on Sept. 1.
Amita Sehgal, a neuroscientist at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, won the award honoring excellence in basic science research.
The blood cells, part of the body's first line of defense against infection, have been notoriously difficult to genetically engineer.
The findings are critical for researchers aiming to develop muscle stem cells in the lab that can be used to combat disease.
The drug’s legalization and decriminalization have made detection especially important for preventing impaired driving, the authors say.
By repurposing drugs originally intended for other uses, scientists are pushing forward the fight against cancer.
