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-...

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.
Jan 15 2020 | Scope
Cellular respiration has a downside: Its byproducts harm the mitochondria that perform this trick, endangering our brain cells.
Jan 8 2020 | Scope
A new study has identified T cells targeting the Epstein-Barr virus in autopsied Alzheimer's brains and in cerebrospinal fluid of Alzheimer's patients.
Researchers are working to develop a wearable sensor to measure stress, anxiety and depression based on changes in cortisol levels and other parameters.
Scientists develop a technology to find "jumping genes," a type of genetic element that may contribute to antibiotic resistance.

People with a mutation in an enzyme that breaks down alcohol may be at a higher risk for developing Alzheimer's disease, new research suggests.
Dec 11 2019 | Stanford Medicine
In the presence of alcohol, a defective version of the aldehyde dehydrogenase 2 gene in human cell cultures and mice leads to biochemical changes associated with Alzheimer’s disease.
Doctors and researchers are equipped with objective tests to detect and measure many serious illnesses. But when it comes to mental illness, no such tests exist.
Dec 6 2019 | Stanford Medicine
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.
Dec 5 2019 | Stanford Medicine
Protein levels in people’s blood can predict their age, a Stanford study has found. The study also found that aging isn’t a smoothly continuous process.
Dec 4 2019 | Stanford Medicine
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.
Nov 21 2019 | Stanford Medicine
A new finding by Stanford researchers represents a missing link between two worlds — that of dietary science, and that of molecular and cellular biology.
Nov 19 2019 | Scope
A new cystic fibrosis test could provide a more accurate, and easier, way to test newborns for the hereditary, lung-clogging disease.
Nov 15 2019 | Stanford ChEM-H
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.
