Cool Discoveries

The latest research from UC San Diego and how it impacts our world.

See where UC San Diego researchers are traveling this summer in the name of science. Thanks to U-T San Diego for putting this map together! #travel #ucsd

Grad student Janelle Shane gave @University of California a glimpse of what it's like to build nano lasers. Her work may one day lead to faster computer chips. #science #tech #UCSD #computer

Standing over #wildflowers may not sound like scientific research, but that's how grad student James Hung finds many of the native #bee species for his collection. #nature #flower #science

Grad student James Hung has collected more than 17,000 wild bees from coastal, desert and mountain areas of San Diego County. He's the region's go-to-guy on native bees. #flowers #bees #sandiego
