News and Press Releases

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 | SLAC
A better understanding of ‘checkpoint proteins,’ which protect cancer cells against immune system strikes, could lead to the development of more effective drugs.
Nov 15 2019 | Stanford Engineering
They make a remarkable array of chemicals to survive the world around them. One engineer is using that knowledge to help people live better.
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.
Nov 14 2019 | Stanford ChEM-H
Cancers currently treated with antibody drugs could instead be targeted with small molecules, which could improve access in low-resource regions of the world.
Nov 14 2019 | Scope
A discovery about how a neural circuit located deep in the brains of female mice changes in response to estrogen could offer insight into human brains.
Nov 12 2019 | Stanford News
The Stanford ChEM-H Building and the Stanford Neurosciences Building are opening this month as part of a new research complex dedicated to improving human health.
Nov 11 2019 | Scope
The Stanford Medical Alumni Association hosted the Women in Medicine and Science event, celebrating the accomplishments of women scientists and physicians.
Nov 7 2019 | Stanford Medicine
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.
Nov 7 2019 | Scope
Stanford researchers study stem-cell-derived human heart muscle cells on the International Space Station to learn effects of microgravity.
Oct 25 2019 | Stanford ChEM-H
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.
Oct 22 2019 | Stanford ChEM-H
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.
In his quest to cure his daughter’s ultra-rare disease, Matt Wilsey might also be changing the way drugs are made, Stanford Business magazine reports.
Oct 22 2019 | Stanford News
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.
In his quest to cure his daughter’s ultra-rare disease, Matt Wilsey might also be changing the way drugs are made.
