Profile
The University of California, Berkeley (Cal), established in 1868, is the oldest campus of the University of California system, which now includes nine campuses and a 10th under development. Graduate and undergraduate programs in the arts and sciences are offered in a wide range of disciplines, leading to bachelor's, master's, and Ph.D. degrees. Cal is one of the world's leading research institutions. Cal has been ranked first nationally in the number of graduate programs in the top 10 in their fields and also first nationally in the number of "distinguished" programs for the scholarship of the faculty. Cal ranks first in the nation and first in the University of California system in the amount of federal research dollars awarded. Cal's renowned faculty currently includes seven recipients of the Nobel Prize and has included 17 Nobel laureates over time.

Low-cost, human-friendly robot designed for AI

Researchers have created a new low-cost, human friendly robot named Blue, designed to use recent advances in artificial intelligence and deep reinforcement learning to master intricate human tasks, all while remaining affordable and safe enough that every AI researcher could have one. The team hopes Blue will accelerate the development of robotics for the home.

Near-perfect performance in low-cost semiconductors

Tiny, easy-to-produce particles, called quantum dots, may soon take the place of more expensive single crystal semiconductors in advanced electronics found in solar panels, camera sensors and medical imaging tools.

3D printing method creates objects in one piece

It looks like something you might find aboard the Starship Enterprise. A projector beams a three-dimensional video into a container of photosensitive resin. The video plays while the container rotates for a few minutes — then the fluid drains, leaving behind a complete, fully formed 3D object.

New CRISPR-Cas9 variants can respond to viral proteases

Using a technique called circular permutation, researchers have created a new suite of Cas9 variants called Cas9-CPs, which will simplify design of Cas9-fusion proteins for diverse applications beyond simple DNA cutting, such as base editing and epigenetic modifications.

3D printed sponge to minimise effects of cancer treatment

With the help of sponges inserted in the bloodstream to absorb excess drugs, doctors are hoping to prevent the dangerous side effects of toxic chemotherapy agents or even deliver higher doses to knock back tumors, like liver cancer, that don't respond to more benign treatments.

CRISPR-based technology to control pests

Combining historical lessons with modern genetic technologies, scientists have developed a new way to control and suppress populations of insects, potentially including those that ravage agricultural crops and transmit deadly diseases.

Skin-like sensor maps blood-oxygen

Injuries can't heal without a constant influx of blood's key ingredient — oxygen. A new flexible sensor can map blood-oxygen levels over large areas of skin, tissue and organs, potentially giving doctors a new way to monitor healing wounds in real time.

A solar cell that does double duty for renewable energy

In the quest for abundant, renewable alternatives to fossil fuels, scientists have sought to harvest the sun's energy through "water splitting," an artificial photosynthesis technique that uses sunlight to generate hydrogen fuel from water. But water-splitting devices have yet to live up to their potential because there still isn't a design for materials with the right mix of optical, electronic, and chemical properties needed for them to work efficiently.
