The UCLA Medal is UCLA’s highest honor. Established in 1979, it is awarded to those who achieve in their fields and who represent the ideals of UCLA.
UCLA researchers have developed a device that generates electricity from the night sky.
A team of researchers from UCLA and Stanford University found it could produce renewable energy at night using a natural process called radiative sky cooling, according to a study published Sept.
UCLA researchers found caffeine might improve the stability of a new material for solar panels.
Yang Yang, a UCLA professor of material science and engineering who led the research, said his team has been studying a solar cell material called perovskite for six years as an alternative power conversion material to traditional silicon solar cells.
UCLA researchers developed a fire-resistant device that monitors the safety of people working in extreme environments.
Richard Kaner, a distinguished professor of inorganic chemistry who led the research, said the device generates electric signals from a person’s movement to monitor for signs of stillness that indicate the wearer might be in danger.
UCLA researchers found silencing certain estrogen receptors in the brain dramatically increases bone density, offering a potential treatment for women with osteoporosis.
Stephanie Correa, an assistant professor of biology, started studying this treatment while she was a postdoctoral student at UC San Francisco.
Campus Queries is a series in which Daily Bruin readers and staff present science-related questions for UCLA professors and experts to answer.
Q: How have the recent wildfires in California affected local wildlife?
UCLA researchers found the life spans of descendants of Civil War prisoners of war are shorter than those of people not descended from POWs, suggesting trauma might affect the long-term health of future generations.
UCLA researchers found in a recent study that those who engage in heavy cannabis usage show improved physical health, mental health and cognitive functions when they reduce the amount of cannabis they consume.
UCLA researchers successfully tested a potential treatment for visual deficiencies associated with autism by manipulating malfunctioning neurons in mice.
The team of researchers studied the mechanisms behind fragile X syndrome, one of the most common genetic causes of autism and identified the deficit neurons that impaired the mice’s ability to process visual information.
