Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Neutrophil nanosponges soak up proteins that promote rheumatoid arthritis

Newswise imageEngineers have developed neutrophil “nanosponges” that can safely absorb and neutralize a variety of proteins that play a role in the progression of rheumatoid arthritis. Injections of these nanosponges effectively treated severe rheumatoid arthritis in two mouse models. Administering the nanosponges early on also prevented the disease from developing. The nanosponges are nanoparticles of biodegradable polymer coated with the cell membranes of neutrophils, a type of white blood cell.

Newswise imageBased in part on an exceptional faculty with broad strengths in the philosophy of science, history of philosophy, philosophy of mind, and ethics, the University of California San Diego Department of Philosophy increased its international prestige by ranking as one of the top 20 Ph.D. philosophy programs in the United States.

Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: New Online Tool Gives 3D View of Human Metabolic Processes

A new computational resource called Recon3D provides a 3D view of genes, proteins and metabolites involved in human metabolism. Researchers used the tool to map disease-related mutations on proteins and also probed how genes and proteins change in response to certain drugs. The work provides a better understanding of disease-causing mutations and could enable researchers to discover new uses for existing drug treatments.

Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Sound as Social Practice

Newswise imageThe University of California San Diego Department of Music is well known for its emphasis on experimental music and sound in composition, performance and scholarship, and brings this to the forefront at a special two-day conference March 2-3. “Sonic Fluidities: An Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference” is the first of its kind at UC San Diego, organized by a committee of current Integrative Studies program students.

Newswise imageTwo University of California San Diego projects, along with a complementary University of Nevada, Reno project, have been selected as recipients of the Corporation for Education Network Initiatives in California (CENIC) 2018 Innovations in Networking Award for Experimental Applications in recognition of work advancing IT and telecommunications technologies to help minimize potential damage caused by wildfires.

Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: New Algorithm Can Pinpoint Mutations Favored by Natural Selection in Large Sections of the Human Genome

Newswise imageA team of scientists has developed an algorithm that can accurately pinpoint, in large regions of the human genome, mutations favored by natural selection. The finding provides deeper insight into how evolution works, and ultimately could lead to better treatments for genetic disorders. For example, adaptation to chronic hypoxia at high altitude can suggest targets for cardiovascular and other ischemic diseases.

Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Using Science and Humanities to Step Back in Time

Newswise imageA collaborative group of researchers from the University of California San Diego traveled to Turin, Italy recently to digitally map an entire portion of the city — complete with historic architecture, expansive murals and stunning works of art. Digital data will be used by students and researchers on campus to explore the site’s buildings and artifacts, ultimately recreating an interactive, virtual-reality experience.

Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Two UC San Diego Playwrights Selected for Prestigious New Play Festival

Newswise imageTwo new works selected for the prestigious Humana Festival of New American Plays were written by University of California San Diego playwrights, marking the first time a UC San Diego faculty member and MFA student have had their work featured simultaneously.

Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Recycling and Reusing Worn Cathodes to Make New Lithium Ion Batteries

Newswise imageNanoengineers at the University of California San Diego have developed an energy-efficient recycling process that restores used cathodes from spent lithium ion batteries and makes them work just as good as new. The process involves harvesting the degraded cathode particles from a used battery and then boiling and heat treating them. Researchers built new batteries using the regenerated cathodes. Charge storage capacity, charging time and battery lifetime were all restored to their original level…
