Biologists at UC San Diego have solved a long-standing mystery concerning the way plants reduce the numbers of their breathing pores in response to rising carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere.
Researchers at the UC San Diego School of Medicine have identified a new biomarker that predicts whether glioblastoma – the most common form of primary brain cancer – will respond to chemotherapy.
Adam Anderson is an alumnus of the electrical and computer engineering program at UC San Diego, where he completed his Ph.D. in 2008. Today, he teaches electrical engineering at Tennessee Tech University, and together with a student, Anderson recently pulled off a major coup: winning the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Spectrum Challenge. To do so, he developed a radio system that made the best use of broadcast spectrum by automatically seeking wavelengths that aren’t cluttered with radio traffic.
