Spanning medicine, math and nanomaterials, support for campus scientific studies has grown almost 40% in five years.
The director of the Keck Observatory writes about how the UCLA astrophysicist overcame the doubters en route to her Nobel Prize.
Ghez, who received the prize for her research into black holes, is the eighth UCLA faculty member to be named a Nobel laureate.
The new partnership will help grow startup companies based on novel aerospace technologies developed at UCLA and elsewhere.
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.
A team led by physics professor Chris Regan has succeeded in building thermoelectric coolers with a total volume of 1 cubic micrometer.
In very early life, sleep helps build the brain’s infrastructure, but it then takes on an entirely new decluttering role, research shows.
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.
