Researchers devised “smart” cells that behave like tiny autonomous robots which may be used to detect damage and disease, and deliver help at just the right time and in just the right amount.
A new study from UCSF suggests that a protein found in the common bullfrog may one day be used to detect and neutralize a poisonous compound produced by red tides and other harmful algal blooms.
A two-week course of an experimental immunotherapy called teplizumab dramatically reduced type 1 diabetes (T1D) diagnosis rates in people at high risk for the disease, according to newly published…
The program, supported by philanthropists Herb and Marion Sandler, funds ideas that challenge generally-accepted theories and have potentially transformative effects.
A research team led by scientists at UC San Francisco and the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub has developed a new CRISPR-based diagnostic tool, dubbed FLASH, that can rapidly identify any drug-resistant…
Chuang and Keiser have shown how machine learning could lead scientists astray and how scientists might, in the future, avoid some of the pitfalls of training computers to be scientists.
UCSF researchers developed a strategy for targeting a key molecule implicated in Parkinson’s disease, opening up a potential new treatment strategy for the currently incurable movement disorder.
UCSF lab found that a chemical that acts as a neurotransmitter in the nervous system is essential for cytonemes to mediate cell-to-cell communication between non-neural cells.
More than a thousand projects across the University received federal funding from the National Institutes of Health in 2018, totaling more than $647.8 million.
