The world-renowned expert in meteorites and lunar rocks had a mineral named after him. He died at home in Los Angeles on Sept. 7.
During his career, he contributed to general relativity, the theory of weak interactions and models for elementary particles based on the mathematical description of knots.
Scientists hope new decontamination methods can help overcome the shortage of personal protective equipment during the COVID-19 crisis.
Researchers will use the space to build new generations of tiny devices, such as computer chips that mimic how the brain works and ultra high-efficiency batteries.
Broad Stem Cell Research Center investigators are are channeling their specialized expertise to fight the novel coronavirus.
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.
The grant to the UCLA Center for Critical Internet Inquiry comes from the Australia-based Minderoo Foundation.
Researchers from the Depression Grand Challenge are collaborating with Apple to measure factors like sleep and activity to understand how they affect symptoms of the disorder.
Through the institute, mathematicians work collaboratively with a broad range of scholars to address today's biggest scientific challenges.
The collaboration aims to advance the use of microbes for sustainable production of new plastics.
A study led by UCLA mathematicians and scientists highlights the dangers of a major COVID-19 spike after the removal of health precautions.
Researchers will work to create super-powerful computers that harness the mysterious behavior of particles at the subatomic level.
Scientists are not predicting that a volcanic eruption or earthquake is imminent, but the study revealed uncommon activity for the region.
Researchers receive Department of Energy grant to transform carbon dioxide into construction materials
CO2Concrete, developed by UCLA engineers, is made in part from emissions captured from power plants and other sources.
Previous simulations suggested that astronauts on the surface would be safe during a full moon while it resides within the magnetosphere.
A single protein may determine the size of scars, scientists say. Larger scars heighten the risk of future death from heart failure.
The contest invites student teams to identify a problem, dream up a nanotech-enabled solution and pitch their products to experts.
The innovative device turns finger movements into electrical signals and ultimately into spoken words through a smartphone app.
Research brief: The advance could accelerate large-scale testing and diagnosis of people with genetic and metabolic disorders.
The film collects chemical signals from sweat and converts them into electrical ones that can be processed and displayed on a watch.
Researchers will focus on an immunotherapy known as CAR T, which uses genetically modified stem cells to target and destroy the virus.
In recent years the department has been trying to make labs more engaging; safer-at-home orders demonstrated the benefits of letting students design their own experiments.
Margaret Kivelson has been recognized by the Royal Society, Harvard University and University of Leicester.
Research brief: Findings from a UCLA study indicate some men may not require the intensive treatment they have traditionally received.
