A team led by Nano Professor Shaochen Chen, working with UC San Diego Medicine and Bioengineering Professor Shu Chien, has printed a tissue that closely mimics the human liver's structure and function for use in patient-specific drug screening and disease modeling.

The Defense Threat Reduction Agency grant is intended to develop new skin-wearable systems that can rapidly and efficiently detect and remove chemical and biological agents. The project, led by Nano professors Joseph Wang and Liangfang Zhang, aims to provide better understanding of how chem-bio a

For the second year in a row, Dr. Joseph Wang has been named a Highly-Cited Researcher by leading news organization Thomson Reuters due to the number of citations his work has received from fellow researchers.

Using hollow 5 micrometer-wide cones, the Wang and Esener labs have shown how ultrasound-triggered explosions can shoot drug-packed nanobullets deep into diseased tissue. 

A team led by Dr. Michael Heller has developed a new technology that uses an oscillating electric field to easily and quickly isolate drug-delivery nanoparticles from blood.

The Sustainable Power and Energy Center (Dr. Shirley Meng, director), has joined with other UCSD researchers as new members of CalCharge, the pioneering public-private partnership designed to accelerate breakthrough energy storage technologies in California. 

The Albert Easton White Distinguished Teacher Award bears the inscription "For inspired teaching for 45 years, and for leadership in the field of Materials Science and Engineering through research, organization of conferences and symposia, and writing textbooks used globally." The award was prese

Part of the NIH's "High Risk, High Reward" program, the award supports exceptionally creative, early-career investigators with innovative, high-impact projects. Dr.

As reported recently in the journal Angewandte Chemie​, a group led by Dr. Joseph Wang has shown how tiny carbon-capturing motors may reduce the oceans' rising carbon dioxide levels.

By cloaking drug-delivering nanoparticles in the plasma membrane of human platelets, a group led by Dr. Zhang greatly increased the therapeutic effects of medicines administered to animal subjects.
