UCSD Research Expo showcases grad students' work
The Jacobs School of Engineering at UC San Diego today (April 18) plays host to its annual Research Expo, where over 200 projects from Jacobs graduate students will be on display.
“Solving the world’s most pressing and complex challenges – in the realms of health, energy, information technology and other disciplines – requires research teams with a broad range of expertise working together. Research Expo is a showcase of the collaborations occurring every day on campus,” said UC San Diego Chancellor Pradeep K. Khosla in a release prior to the event.
Developments on display range from nanofoams that could be used to develop better blast-resistant armor for soldiers as well as protecting buildings from impacts to new low-cost cancer diagnostic technologies. Also on display will be a video game developed to teach children as young as elementary-age to use the computer programming language Java.
