Follow-up imaging for women with non-metastatic breast cancer varies widely across the country, according to a new study led by researchers at UCSF.
Scientists have used ultra-high-resolution cryo–electron microscopy to capture the most detailed portrait ever of an opioid drug triggering the biochemical signaling cascade that gives it its power.
UCSF researchers have shown that an experimental brain boosting drug, ISRIB, acts like a molecular staple, pinning together parts of a much larger protein involved in cellular stress.
A type of AI known as advanced machine learning can classify essential views from heart ultrasound tests faster, more accurately and with less data than board-certified echocardiographers.
For the first time, neuroscientists have identified “anxiety” cells deep inside the brain.
