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.
Johnson, whose research focuses on understanding mechanisms of gene regulation, will take the helm on Sept. 1.
The design could also be altered to detect other infectious diseases and airborne viral threats by continuously monitoring the air of indoor environments.
The award from the National Cancer Institute will fund a series of collaborative research projects over five years at UCLA.
The blood cells, part of the body's first line of defense against infection, have been notoriously difficult to genetically engineer.
A study in zebrafish identified how air pollutants contribute to the buildup of toxic proteins associated with the disease.
The program, called SuEIR, takes into account the number of cases categorized as susceptible, unreported, exposed, infectious and recovered.
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.
