Oct 22 2019 | Stanford ChEM-H
Monther Abu-Remaileh works on a not-well-understood part of cells called the lysosome. In this Q&A, he explains why the lysosome matters for health – and basic biology – and talks about why he chose Stanford ChEM-H.
In his quest to cure his daughter’s ultra-rare disease, Matt Wilsey might also be changing the way drugs are made, Stanford Business magazine reports.
Oct 22 2019 | Stanford News
Scientists knew that plants wage chemical war against bacterial, viral and fungal infections. Now they’ve learned how to “vaccinate” tomato plants with a natural chemical to boost their defenses against a pest that makes leaves shrivel up and die.
Oct 17 2019 | Stanford News
By scooping the guts out of bacteria and refilling them with an expansive fluid, scientists can discover whether a microbe is structurally strong or weak, gaining insights that could help fight infectious diseases or aid studies of the beneficial bacterial communities known as microbiomes.
Scientists at Stanford have developed a new PET scan tracer that flags both pancreatic cancer and a lung disease known as idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.
Oct 15 2019 | Stanford Medicine
At the annual assembly, Stanford Medicine leaders provided updates on the new Stanford Hospital and other construction projects, and scientists recounted research advances made possible by a colleague’s tissue donation.
Oct 14 2019 | Stanford ChEM-H
Stanford ChEM-H researchers have developed a new imaging tool to monitor gene editing as it happens in cells.
Oct 11 2019 | Stanford ChEM-H
Neuroscience graduate student John Peters explains how his role as the TA for the Undergraduate Scholars Program helps students become well-rounded scientists.
Oct 3 2019 | Stanford ChEM-H
Stanford ChEM-H researchers have developed a method for rapidly determining the function of the vast number of biochemical enzymes in our bodies that remain unknown.
Oct 2 2019 | Scope
A new approach to biobanking that streamlines sample storage and processing is enabling Stanford scientists and doctors to pursue new lines of research.
Oct 1 2019 | Stanford Medicine
Jin Hyung Lee will receive $3.5 million to study the use of innovative technology to analyze brain circuitry, and Corey Keller will receive $1.25 million to fund work into brain stimulation treatments for mental illness.
Oct 1 2019 | Stanford News
The researchers received National Institutes of Health grants to support innovative work in the life sciences.
Sep 25 2019 | Scope
Scientists have used CRISPR-Cas9 screens to reveal more about how the bacteria behind Legionnaire's disease infects humans.
Sep 23 2019 | Stanford Medicine
A Stanford research team has identified an oddball way brain cells spread inflammation in several neurodegenerative diseases — and an approach that could counter them all.
Scientists found a sneaky way to stop cold viruses from replicating in mammalian cells by disabling a protein not in the virus but in the cells they infect.
Sep 16 2019 | Stanford Medicine
Disabling a single, apparently noncritical protein in cells may foil replication of the viruses that cause half of all common colds, polio and other diseases, according to researchers at Stanford and UCSF.
Sep 13 2019 | Stanford Engineering
The vast majority of bacteria that live inside us are not invasive, but rather quite the opposite.
Sep 12 2019 | Scope
Mammalian cells use a label to distinguish self from non-self circular RNA molecules. Foreign molecules can trigger anti-cancer immune responses.
Sep 5 2019 | Stanford Medicine
Decimating levels of intestinal bacteria with antibiotics reduced the immune system’s responsiveness to a seasonal influenza vaccination, a Stanford-led study found.
Sep 5 2019 | Scope
The best time to get a flu shot is when you haven't had antibiotics recently, a new study has found, because healthy gut bacteria protect immunity.
