The first study to report genome-wide data on the prehistoric canid puts to bed a mystery biologists have pondered for more than 100 years.
Research brief: Scientists have discovered how one of the toxins released by the C. difficile bacterium spurs excessive inflammation in the gut.
UCLA’s Ghez won for the prize for physics and UC Berkeley’s Doudna won for chemistry. UCLA Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost Emily A. Carter moderated.
Astrophysicist Andrea Ghez won a Nobel Prize, we were the No. 1 public university again, faculty carried on with important research and students continued to achieve the amazing.
Research brief: The new finding highlights the need for alternative therapies for patients who are resistant to chemotherapy and radiation.
Two UCLA studies reveal how a variety of stressors, both before and during pregnancy, may adversely affect a woman's offspring.
A massive unintended experiment in animal conservation taking place southeast of Las Vegas revealed an unexpected result.
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.
