Bioscientists know a great deal about cell division, but there is one great mystery that remains unsolved: what actually causes a cell to divide. This is especially relevant to cancer studies, where biologists want to know more about the rampant cell division that leads to cancer. A research team from the University of California, San Diego set out to solve this puzzle and found a rather unexpected answer.Read More

The University of California, San Diego is one of only five public universities in the U.S. to make the top 20 list in a new ranking of the world’s top 500 colleges. The campus took the No. 18 spot in U.S. News and World Report’s first-ever global ranking of universities which measured factors such as research, global and regional reputation, international collaboration as well as number of highly-cited papers and doctorates awarded. And with unending support and grants flowing in, UC San Diego is able to invest in the latest cutting edge tools for this world class research.Read More
The University of California, San Diego is a world-class life science research institution. The University has many research centers and programs that help enhance the wide range of research projects that UCSD scientists perform. Research centers at UCSD include:Read More
Do you have lab products that you want to market to life science researchers? Are you interested in meeting with hundreds of active researchers to sell your lab equipment? If you answered yes to either of these questions, consider attending the 2015 39th Semiannual Biotechnology Vendor Showcase™ at the University of California San Diego in February!
Attending a Biotechnology Vendor Showcase™ at UCSD gives YOU the chance to meet with nearly 500 active life science researchers in need of new lab equipment to help with their work. The event is located on campus, as close to the research labs as possible, making it convenient for the researchers to take a break from their work to come visit the show and discover the best and newest products and technologies that will help move their work forward.Read More
To many people, antioxidants are simply thought of as a good thing to consume, even if the reason why is not clear. A new study from the University of California, San Diego, shows that an overdose of antioxidants can actually inhibit the healing process.Read More
Research on memory is very delicate business. The prospect of increasing memory capacity and restoring lost recollections sounds more like magic than science. Despite this, a group of researchers from the University of California, San Diego has found a way to stimulate neural networks in rats in order to erase and restore their memories.
The University of California, San Diego recently received $5.3 million in life science funding from the National Institutes of Health for the university’s Clinical and Translational Research Institute. Researchers were given notice of their new life science grant on June 7th, 2014 by the administering organization within the NIH providing the funding, the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences. Researchers at the University of California, San Diego went into more detail on the NIH website as to how the life science funding would be used:
A neuroscience researcher at the University of California, San Diego recently received a new life science grant that will support her studies with $100,000 per year for the next three years. Dr. MJ Harbert, MD, is an assistant clinical professor in the Department of Neurosciences at UCSD. Her project, “Brain Activity During Birth for Prediction of Newborns at Risk for Brain Injury,” has gained her recognition from The Hartwell Foundation, who named her a recipient of an Individual Biomedical Research Award.
New life science research funding at the University of California, San Diego was recently awarded in the amount of $7.5 million to the Pauline and Stanley Foster Hospital for Cancer Care. The donor, Pauline Foster, is a community philanthropist who has given a great deal of support to the University of California, San Diego over the years. The Pauline and Stanley Foster Hospital for Cancer Care will encompass three floors at the Jacobs Medical Center and be home to medical staff whose purpose is caring for the complex needs of patients with cancer.
