Plant virus plus immune cell-activating antibody clear colon cancer in mice, prevent recurrence

Plant virus plus immune cell-activating antibody clear colon cancer in mice, prevent recurrence

June 21, 2022

A new combination therapy to combat cancer could one day consist of a plant virus and an antibody that activates the immune system’s “natural killer” cells, shows a study by researchers at the University of California San Diego. In mouse models of colon cancer, the combination therapy eliminated all tumors and prevented their recurrence, which in turn resulted in 100% survival. The therapy also increased survival in mouse models of melanoma. Full Story


One step closer to fire safe, recyclable lithium-metal batteries

One step closer to fire safe, recyclable lithium-metal batteries

June 16, 2022

A team of nanoengineers from UC San Diego demonstrated inherently fire safe liquefied gas electrolytes, as well as a one-step solvent-recycling process which promises sustainable operation at scale, in a Nature Energy paper published on June 16. This work provides a route to sustainable, temperature-resilient lithium-metal batteries with fire-extinguishing properties that maintain state-of-the-art electrochemical performance.

Researchers transform an amorphous solid into a new lithium-ion battery material

Researchers transform an amorphous solid into a new lithium-ion battery material

May 2, 2022

Researchers at UC San Diego and Boise State University have developed a new approach to making novel lithium-ion battery materials. The approach transforms a non-crystalline material into a crystalline anode material with exceptional battery properties—by cycling it with lithium.  Full Story
