ChEM-H faculty fellow Sam Gambhir and his colleagues have found a way to track the effectiveness of a cancer immunotherapy in the body.
May 2 2018 | Stanford News
By combining computer simulations with laboratory experiments, an international team led by ChEM-H faculty fellow Ron Dror seeks to design more effective drugs with fewer dangerous side effects.
Apr 3 2018 | Stanford Medicine
ChEM-H faculty fellow Mary Teruel and her colleagues discovered that rising and falling levels of hormones known as glucocorticoids can affect weight gain.
Apr 2 2018 | Stanford Medicine
ChEM-H faculty fellow Christina Smolke and her research group have found a new way of producing a drug with potential anti-cancer properties.
Mar 27 2018 | Stanford News
ChEM-H faculty fellows and trainees are studying how the mechanics of molecules, cells, and tissues regulate biological structure and function.
Mar 12 2018 | Stanford Engineering
ChEM-H faculty fellow K.C. Huang and researchers in his lab have discovered a genetic “tuning knob” that can increase the size of harmful bacteria like E. coli, making them more susceptible to antibiotics.
ChEM-H faculty fellow Jennifer Cochran discusses the development of new methods for treating cancer. These methods aim to treat cancer with more precision and fewer side-effects than existing treatments.
Mar 2 2018 | Stanford Medicine
ChEM-H faculty fellow Sergiu Pasca and his lab use 3-D brain cultures, or "brain balls," to study psychiatric and neurological disease.
Mar 1 2018 | Stanford Medicine
ChEM-H director Chaitan Khosla and his team identified a chemical "switch" that could lead to a treatment for celiac disease.
Feb 28 2018 | Stanford News
ChEM-H faculty fellow Carolyn Bertozzi and graduate students in her lab have developed a new tuberculosis test designed to work in low-resource settings.
Feb 23 2018 | Stanford Medicine
Early career awards from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative will honor Ben Barres, a Stanford neuroscientist and ChEM-H faculty fellow who passed away in December.
Feb 22 2018 | Stanford News
ChEM-H faculty fellow W.E. Moerner and his team have developed a new microscopy technique that allows researchers to capture very clear 3-D images of structures and individual molecules within a cell.
Feb 19 2018 | Stanford News
ChEM-H faculty fellow Zhenan Bao and her team published a recent Nature paper describing the creation of a stretchable, touch-sensitive circuitry. This breakthrough material could lead to the development of skin-like coverings for prosthetics.
Feb 15 2018 | Stanford Medicine
ChEM-H faculty fellow ​Joseph Wu and his colleagues found that priming the immune system with induced pluripotent stem cells prevented or slowed the development of cancer in mice. This discovery could lead to the creation of an anti-cancer vaccine.
Feb 6 2018 | Stanford News
ChEM-H faculty fellow Tim Stearns co-developed a new Stanford course designed to teach undergraduates how to use the tools of science to reach a definitive answer, rather than memorizing existing knowledge.
Feb 6 2018 | Stanford News
In 2016–17, gifts to the university included key investments in Stanford ChEM-H.
Jan 31 2018 | Stanford Engineering
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.
Jan 29 2018 | Stanford News
ChEM-H faculty fellow Eric Kool and his research group have developed a new method to study RNA function in cells.
Jan 22 2018 | Stanford News
ChEM-H faculty fellow Carolyn Bertozzi and her research group have developed a new needle-free HIV test.
Jan 19 2018 | Stanford News
ChEM-H faculty fellow Lynette Cegelski and others have discovered a new type of cellulose in bacteria. Their findings, reported in the Jan. 18 issue of Science, could lead to advances in antibiotics.
