UC Irvine economists focus on many factors, including what attracts companies and workers, to give policymakers a good picture of the business environment in California.
UC researchers are part of a national consortium of gardens and arboreta dedicated to preventing extinction of plants.
A UC Discovery Grant created a partnership between UC researchers and a Woodland startup, which is converting wastes into biofuels.
It is not always quite simple, but UCSF neuroscientists use computer technology to figure out how songbirds perfect their tune. Findings could help create tools for people rehabilitating from neuromuscular diseases and injuries.
Lions, tigers and people — oh, my. A new research initiative will match medical and veterinary students from different UC campuses to work on projects important to both animal and human health.
The UCSF ‘D’Vice Squad’ teams physicians, engineers and other scientists to develop devices that will improve the health of children. (More information)
UC Riverside this year opened an innovative laboratory, “The Dynamic Genome,” which gives freshmen the kind of experimental research experience usually reserved for upper classmen or graduate students. (More information)
A UC Berkeley graduate student explains his fascination with Central American cloud forests and his efforts to share his passion and research with young students.
In preparing for the next Mars rover project, a UC Davis geologist is developing ways to probe rock structures on the planet. Martian rocks could offer clues whether the planet environment, before or now, could support life.
A UCSF scientist studies the interactions of the scores of bacteria inside us and our skin. These natural drug-producing microbes can potentially yield new therapies.
Instead of producing movie blockbusters, UC Merced researchers are creating more realistic human motions for lifelike virtual characters. They can be viewed and used in a variety of ways, including learning tasks.
UC Berkeley scientists, in collaboration with the national labs, have devised a nanoscale testing technique that could be invaluable in making sure nuclear facilities and the materials inside them are safe for years to come.
Sometimes it takes up to a week to identify a virus that’s making people sick. A UC Irvine physicist is studying viruses, including the flu, to develop a quick and cheap method to identify the culprits. More information
UC Riverside research has identified odor molecules that hamper mosquitoes from sniffing out people. It may pave the way for new repellants and prevent deadly diseases spread by the insects.
With the help of wireless sensors, UC researchers observe the cycle of water deep in the soil. Their studies will track how our water and forests respond to climate change.
UC San Diego students are in Houston, on a NASA plane, this week to investigate what happens in the heads of astronauts during weightlessness. They are part of NASA's Microgravity University, which offers selected students a rare chance to do research in near-zero gravity.
Reducing black carbon could immediately slow global warming and save millions of lives, says a UC San Diego scientist. And simply providing cleaner burning stoves in rural villages can help do the trick.
For historians and music lovers, UC Santa Barbara has an online encyclopedia of RCA Victor recordings made between 1900-50. Listings will eventually reach 165,000.
UCSF and UC Berkeley grads are developing an implant that will deliver precise doses of lifesaving drugs directly into the bloodstream.
