Hongjie Dai, Julie Parsonnet and Joseph Wu are among the 90 regular members and 10 international members elected this year to the academy, which aims to provide independent, scientifically informed analysis and recommendations on health issues.
CAR-T cells are remarkably effective against blood cancers, but their effect can be transient as the cells become exhausted. Stanford researchers found a way to keep the cells effective in mice with human tumors.
Christine Jacobs-Wagner joined ChEM-H as an Institute Scholar this fall. Here, she talks about her research on cell growth and replication, why she works with chemists, physicists and more and why she’s so excited about the pub coming to the new Stanford ChEM-H and Neurosciences Buildings.
Researchers at Stanford and UCSF slowed the spread of a type of nonsmall cell lung cancer in mice by neutralizing a single protein that would otherwise set off a chain reaction, causing runaway tumor growth.
Stanford ChEM-H has named 11 incoming students O’Leary-Thiry Graduate Fellows and two current students Stanford Interdisciplinary Graduate Fellows to pursue research at the chemistry-biology interface.
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.
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.
