News and Press Releases

Mar 25 2020 | Stanford Medicine
Researchers have developed a method for building nanoscale structures with genetically reprogrammed cells.
Mar 24 2020 | Stanford News
Old human cells can become more youthful by coaxing them to briefly express proteins used to make induced pluripotent cells, Stanford researchers and their colleagues have found. The finding may have implications for aging research.
Mar 12 2020 | Scope
Scientists create a new 3D lung cancer model to better reveal the drivers of cancer, and in doing so, find a new gene that may be a possible drug target.
Scientists designed a tunable peptide-like molecular coating that enables 3-D DNA nanostructures to maintain their structural integrity and functionality in different physiological environments relevant to drug delivery and other biomedical applications.
As we get better at fine-tuning DNA, we may be able to move beyond the treatment of disease to develop unprecedented techniques of rejuvenation.
Feb 25 2020 | Stanford Medicine
Bacteria normally inhabiting healthy people’s intestines — and the anti-inflammatory metabolites these bacteria produce — are depleted in ulcerative colitis patients, a Stanford study shows.
Feb 25 2020 | Scope
A study links ulcerative colitis to the depletion of important acids ordinarily produced by a set of gut microbes mysteriously missing in action.
Feb 24 2020 | Stanford ChEM-H
A group led by ChEM-H Institute Scholar Lingyin Li and Chemistry/Biology Interface graduate student Jacqueline Carozza has found a molecule that could help undermine cancer's defenses.
Ami Bhatt, MD, PhD, is an assistant professor of medicine – hematology – and of genetics and a member of the core leadership team for Stanford Center for Innovation in Global Health.
Feb 19 2020 | Stanford Engineering
This novel biological tool can probe and control several genetic circuits at once.
Feb 19 2020 | Stanford News
The Stanford ChEM-H Building and the Stanford Neurosciences Building are part of a new research complex dedicated to improving human health.
Feb 12 2020 | Stanford News
With leaders appointed for the Changing Human Experience, Public Humanities and Innovative Medicines Accelerator, those initiatives are poised to further humanities research, disseminate that work beyond campus and accelerate new medicines.
Feb 12 2020 | SLAC
A better understanding of this phenomenon, which is crucial to many processes that occur in biological systems and materials, could enable researchers to develop light-sensitive proteins for areas such as biological imaging and optogenetics.
Feb 11 2020 | SLAC
Cryogenic electron microscopy can in principle make out individual atoms in a molecule, but distinguishing the crisp from the blurry parts of an image can be a challenge. A new mathematical method may help.
Feb 6 2020 | Stanford News
ZHENAN BAO, the K. K. Lee Professor in the School of Engineering, and members of her lab are featured in a film series from the Camille & Henry Dreyfus Foundation that highlights contributions being made by leading contemporary chemists.
Jan 22 2020 | Stanford News
An effort to thwart viral diseases like hepatitis or the common cold led to a new collaboration and a novel class of cancer drugs that appears effective in mice.An effort to thwart viral diseases like hepatitis or the common cold led to a new collaboration and a novel class of cancer drugs that...
A new technique for systematically surveying proteins on the outer surface of cells, which act like molecular social cues to guide cell-cell interactions and assembly into tissues and organs. By Ker Than Stanford scientists have completed the first global census of diverse proteins sprouting tree-...
Jan 22 2020 | Stanford News
The National Academy of Sciences (NAS) has presented its 2020 John J. Carty Award for the Advancement of Science to Stanford chemistry professor CAROLYN BERTOZZI for her invention of bioorthogonal chemistry.
Jan 22 2020 | Scope
About half of astronauts could develop osteoporosis during a mission to Mars, a new study led by Stanford scientists has found.
Jan 20 2020 | Stanford ChEM-H
The 2020 Chemistry for the Future Solvay Prize recognizes Bertozzi’s invention of bioorthogonal chemical reactions that can be performed in living cells.
