The University of Southern California (USC) was founded in 1880 and is the oldes private research center in the West. USC divides the campus into University Park which houses the College of Letters and Science and professional schools and The Health Science campus. The Health Science campus is North of the Los Angeles University Park campus and houses the Keck School of Medicine, School of Dentistry and three major-teaching hospitals. USC is known for its Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy and Biokinseology and Physical Therapy and Biomedical Engineering research and Chemistry department.
Atlas Mountains in Morocco are buoyed up by superhot rock, study finds
The Atlas Mountains defy the standard model for mountain structure in which high topography must have deep roots for support, according to a new study from Earth scientists at USC.
Engineers cut time to 3D-print heterogeneous objects from hours to minutes (w/ Video)
Researchers at the USC Viterbi School of Engineering have developed a faster 3D printing process and are now using it to model and fabricate heterogeneous objects, which comprise multiple materials.
Quantum computer built inside a diamond
Diamonds are forever or, at least, the effects of this diamond on quantum computing may be. A team that includes scientists from USC has built a quantum computer in a diamond, the first of its kind to include protection ...
Researcher uses DNA to demonstrate just how closely everyone on Earth is related to everyone else
New research by Peter Ralph of USC Dornsife has confirmed that everyone on Earth is related to everyone else on the planet. So the Trojan Family is not just a metaphor. Turns out, we're also linked by genetics more closely ...
Study shows state legislators in favor of voter ID laws are motivated by racial bias
Groundbreaking research by USC Dornsife's Christian Grose, associate professor of political science, and doctoral candidate Matthew Mendez has shown that lawmakers who support voter ID laws are more likely to show racial ...
Mapping the Twitterverse
(Phys.org) —What does your Twitter profile reveal about you? More than you know, according to Chris Weidemann. The GIST master's student has developed an application that follows geospatial footprints.
Researchers apply brainpower to understanding neural stem cell differentiation
How do humans and other mammals get so brainy? USC researcher Wange Lu, PhD, and his colleagues shed new light on this question in a paper that will be published in Cell Reports on October 24.
Researchers figure out how to 'grow' carbon nanotubes with specific atomic structures
Move over, silicon. In a breakthrough in the quest for the next generation of computers and materials, researchers at USC have solved a longstanding challenge with carbon nanotubes: how to actually build them with specific, ...
Quantum computers could help search engines keep up with the Internet's growth
Most people don't think twice about how Internet search engines work. You type in a word or phrase, hit enter, and poof a list of web pages pops up, organized by relevance.
Researchers develop first-of-its-kind mathematical model for biological process that keeps immune system working
Scientists at USC have created a mathematical model that explains and predicts the biological process that creates antibody diversity – the phenomenon that keeps us healthy by generating robust immune systems through hypermutation.
