Researchers at UC San Diego School of Medicine have received a $6.1 million grant to launch a new Center of Excellence in Therapeutics to study the effects of medications on human milk and infant health.
Some scientists have called it “superhuman immunity” or “bulletproof.” But immunologist Shane Crotty prefers “hybrid immunity.”
Genetically engineered mosquitoes could be the key to winning the war against malaria, a disease that affects more than 200 million people every year and kills more than 400,000 – many of whom are children.

Blood-sucking flies may be following chemicals produced by skin bacteria to locate bats to feed on.
A team led by researchers at UC San Diego have discovered how glycans — molecules that make up a sugary residue around the edges of the spike protein — act as infection gateways for SARS-CoV-2, the virus which causes COVID-19, which may be a key to countering the virus.
Researchers are using a system of these unassuming robots to monitor sewage on campus. It is a key part of a sophisticated COVID-19 monitoring system that will help officials identify and contain outbreaks this fall when the campus is full of students for the first time in more than a year.
Study Shows Covid-19 Can Be Detected In A Single Asymptomatic Person Through Wastewater Surveillance
A new study from UC San Diego demonstrates that wastewater surveillance can detect Covid-19 in a single infected, asymptomatic person living or working in a multi-unit dwelling such as a university campus building.
Since reopening campus at the University of California-San Diego last summer, university officials have relied on the tried-and-true public health strategies of testing and contact tracing. But they have also added a new tool to their arsenal: excrement.
UC San Diego’s wastewater screening program detected 85% of COVID-19 cases on campus early, allowing for timely testing, contact tracing and isolation, it was announced Wednesday.
