Dentistry professor studies medical benefits of nanodiamonds

UCLA researchers are using microscopic carbon molecules for medical procedures and experiments ranging from cancer drug delivery to root canals. These microscopic carbon molecules, known as nanodiamonds, are five nanometers in diameter and shaped like soccer balls with sharper edges, said Dean Ho, a professor in the School of Dentistry.

Researchers discover new method to detect concussions and brain trauma

UCLA researchers have found a way for doctors to diagnose brain trauma and concussions using blood tests. In a study published last week, researchers led by Ina Wanner, a neuroscientist at the David Geffen School of Medicine, found that a type of brain cell known as astrocytes releases large amounts of four specific types of proteins when the brain is injured.
