A research team led by UCLA scientists and engineers has developed a method to make new kinds of artificial “superlattices” — materials comprised of alternating layers of ultra-thin “two-dimensional” sheets, which are only one or a few atoms thick. Unlike current state-of-the art superlattices, in which
Capped by emotional speeches from the Alumnus of the Year and the Lifetime Contribution Award honoree, the 2018 UCLA Engineering Awards Dinner honored the very best of the school’s alumni, students and faculty on March 3.
UCLA engineers and scientists have engineered a type of synthetic protein — a chimeric antigen receptor, or CAR, that responds to soluble protein targets. The advance shows great promise for helping the body’s immune system seek out and destroy cancer because it could
