Production of Glycolipid PEFAs from Yeasts

Method of using basidiomycetous yeasts to convert carbohydrates to glycolipid biosurfactants 

Computer Model for Preoperative Planning and Surgical Design for Reconstructive Surgery

Historically, in a time-honored tradition, surgical procedures are learned by watching and doing in an operating room under the supervision of a board certified surgeon. While these methods are well-established and a core part of training, there is certainly an opportunity to provide new modalities and tools to enhance the teaching and learning for surgical residents in training.

Modular and Flexible Thermal Energy Storage System

UCLA researchers in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering have developed a novel modular and flexible thermal energy storage system that anticipates lower costs and higher performance than current state of the art thermal energy storage systems.

Non-Anthropomorphic Bi-Ped Robot With Speed And Stability (Nabiross)

UCLA researchers in the Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering have developed a low cost, low complexity bi-pedal robot that does not require sensor feedback.

Employing CRISPR-Cas9 to Target RNA in Live Cells

RNA's location in a cell -- and how and when it gets there -- can influence whether proteins are produced in the right location and at the appropriate time. For instance, proteins important to neuronal connections in the brain, known as synapses, are produced from RNAs located at these contacts. Defective RNA transport is linked to a host of conditions ranging from autism to cancer and researchers need ways to measure RNA movement in order to develop treatments for these conditions. As the intermediary genetic material that carries the genetic code from the cell's nucleus, scientists have long sought an efficient method for targeting RNA in living cells. RNA-programmed genome editing using CRISPR/Cas9 from Streptococcus pyogenes has enabled rapid and accessible alteration of specific genomic loci in many organisms. A flexible means to target RNA would allow alteration and imaging of endogenous RNA transcripts analogous to CRISPR/Cas-based genomic tools, but most RNA targeting methods rely on incorporation of exogenous tags.

Enhanced Method of Geomasking Builds Upon Donut Method Using Demographic Information

Researchers at the University of California, Davis have developed an enhanced geomasking method building upon the current “Donut Method” which considers demographic information when masking medical-related geographic data. In doing this, greater medical validity is preserved and greater research utility is acquired, all without substantial loss in anonymity.

Building blocks for 3D, modular microfluidics

Researchers at the University of CA, Irvine have developed modular microfluidic platforms consisting of microfluidic building blocks that can be connected in various configurations to construct complete microfluidic devices for different applications.
