A close-up look at how microbes build their crystalline shells has implications for understanding how cell structures form, preventing disease and developing nanotechnology.
The parasite that causes malaria is remarkably adept at developing resistance to the drugs devised to combat it. But new research suggests a solution.
Jun 10 2019 | Stanford News
Stanford chemists have identified and synthesized two new healing compounds in scorpion venom that are effective at killing staph and tuberculosis bacteria.

Scientists hook fluorescent tags onto molecules to see how they keep cells alive. Such tags used to burn out quickly. Now they glow longer, revealing more about how life works.
E-cigarette flavorings are harmful to blood vessel cells even in the absence of nicotine. The flavors of cinnamon and menthol are particularly dangerous.
May 27 2019 | Stanford Medicine
E-cigarette flavorings damage human blood vessel cells grown in the lab even in the absence of nicotine, Stanford researchers and their colleagues found. Cinnamon and menthol flavors were particularly harmful.
Stanford researchers are using lab-grown heart cells to investigate how Chagas disease, which is spread by "kissing bugs," affects heart health.
May 20 2019 | Stanford ChEM-H
During the fifth annual Stanford ChEM-H Postdoc Retreat, postdocs presented their human health-centered research and learned about transitioning to academic or industry careers.
Stanford researchers, seeking ways to regenerate muscle after injury, find a promising method using collagen and vascular cells.
In this In the Spotlight Q&A, Daniel Bayless, a postdoctoral fellow in psychiatry and behavioral sciences, talks about his research on sex differences.
A team of Stanford researchers has developed a new model to more accurately identify proteins from a mass spectometry sample.

Impeding VCAM1, a protein that tethers circulating immune cells to blood vessel walls, enabled old mice to perform as well on memory and learning tests as young mice, a Stanford study found.
Old mice suffered far fewer senior moments on memory tests when Stanford investigators disabled a single molecule dotting the mice’s cerebral blood vessels.

Researchers don’t know much about how viruses like those that cause chicken pox infect cells. A super-cold form of electron microscopy could change that, potentially paving the way for new treatments and vaccines.
May 11 2019 | Stanford ChEM-H
In 2015, postdoctoral scholars Jennifer Cao and Cole Dovey met at the Stanford ChEM-H Postdoc Retreat and discovered that they shared an interest in cell death pathways. Funding from Stanford ChEM-H has brought their labs closer to understanding the different ways cells self-destruct.
May 7 2019
We asked some of trainees from the Chemisty-Biology Interface (CBI) program to speak about how the program has impacted their time at Stanford and shaped the way they approach research. They spoke about some of the key aspects of the CBI program that make it so successful: the people, like the...

Low oxygen levels during brain development may cause particular cells to differentiate too soon, a Stanford-led study found.
Using a lab model, Stanford researchers identified a type of developing brain cell that is profoundly changed by exposure to low oxygen levels.
May 6 2019 | Stanford Medicine
In a Stanford study of 30 children with autism, intranasal vasopressin improved social skills more than a placebo, suggesting that the hormone may treat core features of the disorder.
