Physicists Race to Demystify Einstein’s ‘Spooky’ Science

University of California San Diego

International researchers, including UC San Diego physicists, conducted a “Cosmic Bell” test with polarization-entangled photons to further close the “freedom-of-choice” or “free will” loophole. The experiment tests Bell’s inequality, and results push back to at least 7.8 billion years ago the most recent time by which any causal influences from alternative, non-quantum mechanisms could have exploited the loophole.

Byproducts of ‘Junk DNA’ Implicated in Cancer Spread

University of California San Diego

Biologists have revealed that enhancer RNAs play a significant role in cancer dissemination. The researchers found that eRNAs have a direct role in the activation of genes that are important for tumor development. This role is facilitated by the ability of eRNAs to directly interact with BRD4, a protein known as a cancer disseminator.

Chemistry Research ‘Rocks’ New Data about Ancient Life

University of California San Diego

Sulfur isotopes can serve as tracers of atmospheric oxygen, and new data collected from the present-day atmosphere in China by an international team of researchers, led by the University of California San Diego, indicate remarkable similarity to the isotopic footprint found in ancient rocks. This opens up new interpretations of the Archean Period’s sulfur isotope sedimentary signature—a proxy for the origins and evolution of atmospheric oxygen and early life on Earth.

Charles Lee Powell Foundation: Three Decades of Giving to the Jacobs School of Engineering at UC San Diego

University of California San Diego

The Charles Lee Powell Foundation has given more than $35 million in support during the past three decades to the Jacobs School of Engineering at the University of California San Diego. The generous San Diego-based foundation has funded research in the Department of Structural Engineering and the Charles Lee Powell Laboratories, a relationship that has been essential to the existence of these research laboratories. In addition, the foundation has established the Powell Fellows program for doctoral students, the H. Kunzel Endowed Scholarship/Fellowship Fund and endowed faculty chairs to help recruit and retain stellar scholars.

Bacterial Communities Use Sophisticated Strategy to Communicate over Long Distances

University of California San Diego

“Percolation” theory is helping explain how communities of bacteria can effectively relay signals across long distances. Once regarded as simple microorganisms, communities of bacteria have been found to employ a strategy we use to brew coffee and extract oil from the sea. Percolation helps the microscopic community thrive and survive threats.

Scientists Introduce New Way to Mimic ‘Machine of Machines’

University of California San Diego

Nature freely puts together microscopic building blocks. To mimic this self-assembly would revolutionize science’s approach to synthesizing materials that could heal, contract or reconfigure. UC San Diego and NYU scientists explored this mimicry and introduced a new way to assemble specially designed microscopic blocks into small gear-like machines.
