Collaborating with devoted colleagues, Dr. Kariko laid the groundwork for the mRNA vaccines turning the tide of the pandemic.
UC scientists and physicians hope to permanently cure patients of sickle cell disease by using CRISPR-Cas9 to replace a defective gene with the normal version
Five years ago, scientists created a single-celled synthetic organism that, with only 473 genes, was the simplest living cell ever known.
Owning a car can be hard, but it’s the people who brave the struggle who do the most for car culture. Among those people is this hero in Seattle who built an engine crane out of two-by-six planks. It’s incredible. But, let’s look into how safe it is.
If travel to distant stars within an individual’s lifetime is going to be possible, a means of faster-than-light propulsion will have to be found. To date, even recent research about superluminal (faster-than-light) transport based on Einstein’s theory of general relativity would require vast amounts of hypothetical particles and states of matter that have “exotic” physical properties such as negative energy density.
NSF-supported researchers achieve two-way communication with lucidly dreaming people, creating a new method for studying the human mind that might lead to innovative ways of learning and problem-solving.
Stopping the pandemic could rely on breakneck efforts to visualize SARS-CoV-2 proteins and use them to design drugs and vaccines.
A simple backyard procedure results in see-through wood with enormous potential as a building material.
Scientists are getting to grips with the role of mechanical forces in the body, from embryo to adult.
In a recent experiment done at the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics, in Germany, physicist Alexey Grinin and his colleagues came a step closer to resolving one of the more significant puzzles to have arisen in particle physics over the past decade.
From their living rooms and pickup trucks, amateur radio operators reach out to the International Space Station, circling 240 miles above Earth.
Seasonal damage in bone fossils in Spain suggest Neanderthals and their predecessors followed the same strategy as cave bears
