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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Stanford scientists have completed the first global census of diverse proteins sprouting tree-...
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.
