With the successful launch of their ELFIN satellites, UCLA students’ work studying space weather is just beginning
Scientists have long known that circulating tumor cells, rare cancer cells that are released into the bloodstream, have the potential to provide vital information about a person’s specific cancer.
Five years ago, a group of UCLA undergrads came together with a common goal — to build a small satellite and launch it into space.
Alumnus Mukund Padmanabhan, an accomplished electrical engineer who now works in finance, has made a gift of $500,000 through his foundation to create a new scholarship at the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering.
How do we save the planet for future generations? We can start by cleaning up our oceans and bringing potable water to areas that desperately need it–which is exactly what the engineers at UCLA Samueli are pursuing.
UCLA algorithm could lead to next-generation smartphones and other communication devices that send and receive information faster and at higher volumes. Research group has received $2.4 million grant from DARPA to expand the tool’s capabilities.
Materials scientists from the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering have developed a highly efficient thin-film solar cell that generates more energy from sunlight than typical solar panels, thanks to its double-layer design.
We asked him about the advantages and challenges of 3D-printing tissues and organs, and how he and his lab benefit by conducting research at UCLA.
A computational materials scientist at the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering has received three major federal grants totaling $1.3 million to develop tougher glass that can safely immobilize nuclear waste, as well develop new types of glass, for practical uses, that would be more resistant to breaking and scratching.
