The program is designed for incoming Stanford clinical fellows who hold M.D./Ph.D. degrees and are committed to pursuing research-intensive training in any of the clinical departments at Stanford University. Applications are due April 16, 2018.
PhD students can apply for the Stanford Interdisciplinary Graduate Fellowship (SIGF) Affiliated with ChEM-H. Applications are due February 26, 2018.
Incoming Ph.D. students interested in exploring the interface between chemistry, biology, engineering, and medicine are encouraged to apply once they are admitted to a home department program at Stanford. Current MSTP students may apply during their M2 or G1 year. Applications are due May 4, 2018.
Stanford ChEM-H faculty fellow Stanley Qi and his team used gene-editing techniques to create human immune cells that target and kill cancerous cells, such as leukemia. The approach could be adapted to an array of diseases ranging from solid tumors to neurological and autoimmune disorders.
Stanford ChEM-H faculty fellows Alex Dunn, Beth Pruitt, and William Weis study the mechanics of molecules, cells, and tissues. The field of "mechanobiology" has significant implications for the advancement of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.
Stanford ChEM-H faculty fellows Michael Fischbach and Justin Sonnenberg found that manipulating the gut microbe Clostridium sporogenes changed levels of molecules in the bloodstreams of mice and, in turn, affected their health.
Stanford ChEM-H and the School of Engineering are seeking applicants for a tenure-track faculty position at the junior level (Assistant or untenured Associate Professor) for primary appointment in one of the nine departments in the School of Engineering. Applications are due October 20, 2017.
Stanford and Takeda Pharmaceuticals have formed the Alliance for Innovative Medicines, which will help transform Stanford research into next-generation treatments for disease. Stanford ChEM-H will manage the new collaborative program.
Stanford ChEM-H is hiring new faculty whose research bridges chemistry, engineering and medicine to buid a community of scientists who will drive the engineering of molecules, materials, and measurement tools that help understand humans and treat disease.
