In many classrooms, instructors use touchscreen tablets to operate overhead projectors. They are straightforward tools, but only if the user can see which buttons to press. This summer, University of California, Davis, history lecturer Seth Clark discovered his sight impairment made the tablets challenging to use.

Novel dynamic imaging technology captures the body's immune response to COVID-19 infection

A team of UC Davis scientists used dynamic total-body positron emission tomography (PET) to provide the first imaging of the human body's immune response to COVID-19 infection in recovering patients. Their work, published in Science Advances, could lead to a better understanding of how the body's immune system responds to viral infections and develops long-term protection against re-infection.

'Lava Lamp' Vesicles Show How Cells Could Self-organize

The inside of a living cell is crowded with large, complex molecules. New research on how these molecules could spontaneously organize themselves could further our understanding of how cells manage their essential biochemistry in the crowded space.
