The composition of lipid membranes, similar to those that surround living cells, can now be mapped at the nanometer scale. The work, by researchers at Stanford University, the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and UC Davis, is published in the Sept. 29 issue of the journal Science.
UC Davis is renowned for cross-disciplinary research and teaching that draw upon 100 academic majors; 87 graduate programs; and professional schools in business, education, law, medicine, nursing, and veterinary medicine. The campus connects the population-dense San Francisco Bay and Sacramento urban areas, natural resources in the Delta and the Sierra Nevada, and Central Valley agriculture. CITRIS and the Banatao Institute, UC Davis brings expertise in engineering, nanoscience, law, and medicine to bear on complex challenges related to food, health, the environment, and society.
Just north of campus at the UC Davis Health System in Sacramento, the Center for Health and Technology and the Center for Virtual Care improve the quality of healthcare through education, training, and specialty care services. This 52,000 square-foot joint facility offers HD-equipped classrooms, four telehealth training exam rooms, an inpatient room, outpatient clinic, and a technology demonstration suite. The Center for Virtual Care features a full-size emergency room trauma bay, operating room, inpatient unit, six-bay simulation education area, exam rooms, and sophisticated training mannequins. The adjacent media production studio makes on-site development and distribution of instructional media possible. These advanced training centers connect UC researchers and practitioners with remote clinics across the state of California, enabling the delivery of life-saving care and innovative IT solutions.

Agricultural projects win CITRIS White paper competition
Two agricultural proposals’one on supporting
urban agriculture in Mexico City and the other on alleviating water scarcity in
California farming’are co-winners of the first annual CITRIS White Paper
competition and will receive $7500 each.
CITRIS and Hong Kong open R&D Centers
On April 20, five new R&D centers opened in Hong Kong to further
promote the development of innovation and technology. Hosted by
local universities and technology support organisations, including CITRIS, the Centers
provide a one-stop service for applied research, technology transfer and
commercialisation and help facilitate industries to move up the value chain.
Due to pollution, a breath of fresh air isn't what it used to be. Find
out how a new center at CITRIS campus UC Davis is increasing our
understanding of the causes and effects of bad air on human health

Karl N. Levitt
Professor Levitt conducts research in the areas of computer security, automated verification, and software engineering. With respect to computer security he is working on techniques to detect malicious code (viruses, worms, time bombs, etc.) in programs and to detect attempts to penetrate or misuse computer systems, especially computer networks. With respect to verification, he is applying an automated theorem prover (Higher Order Logic – HOL) to the verification of hardware and software systems, especially operating systems for safety-critical embedded systems.
Shu Lin received the B.S.E.E. degree from the National Taiwan University, Taipei, Taiwan, in 1959, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Rice University, Houston, TX, in 1964 and 1965, respectively. In 1965, he joined the Faculty of the University of Hawaii, Honolulu, as an Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering. He became an Associate Professor in 1969 and a Professor in 1973. In 1986, he joined Texas A&M University, College Station, as the Irma Runyon Chair Professor of Electrical Engineering. In 1987, he returned to the University of Hawaii.
