ChEM-H Institute Scholar Lingyin Li answers some questions about what brought her to ChEM-H, who her role models were growing up, and why she is so fascinated by the innate immune system, a “chemist’s playground.”
In a recent paper published in ACS Central Science, ChEM-H CBI trainee Elizabeth Webster, a graduate student in the lab of ChEM-H faculty fellow Steve Boxer, gets closer to understanding how the Zika virus infects cells.
Nov 21 2018 | Stanford News
ChEM-H faculty fellow Zhenan Bao and her team have developed an electronic glove that bestows robotic hands with some of the manual dexterity humans enjoy.
Nov 14 2018 | Stanford Medicine
ChEM-H faculty fellow Tony Wyss-Coray is part of an interdisciplinary research team that has received a $9.6 million grant to probe the interactions between the brain and blood vessels in order to develop a better understanding of age-related brain disorders.
Nov 5 2018 | Stanford News
A collaboration between ChEM-H faculty fellows Lynette Cegelski and Paul Wender has led to a promising new treatment for antibiotic-resistant infections.

ChEM-H Baker Family Co-Director Carolyn Bertozzi and ChEM-H Institute Scholar Laura Dassama discuss the intersection of science and social media. Keep up with Stanford ChEM-H on Twitter: @Stanford_ChEMH.
Oct 24 2018 | Stanford Engineering
ChEM-H Institute Scholar Stanley Qi and his team have reworked CRISPR-Cas9 gene-editing technology to manipulate the genome in three-dimensional space, allowing them to ferry genetic snippets to different locations in a cell’s nucleus.
Oct 15 2018 | Stanford Medicine
A computational tool designed by ChEM-H Faculty Fellow Ami Bhatt and colleagues makes it easier to identify the source of bloodstream infections and, ideally, rid patients of reservoirs where potentially troublesome microbes reside. By Bruce Goldman
Oct 15 2018 | Stanford News
After nearly eight years of studying a simple marine animal, ChEM-H faculty fellow Manu Prakash discovered a new mechanism for how it moves without muscles.
Oct 11 2018
Faculty fellow Zhenan Bao and researchers in her group have created a stretchable, conductive material that could be used to integrate electronics with squishy biological tissue.
Oct 11 2018 | Stanford Medicine
Using a new variation of gene-editing technology CRISPR, Stanford ChEM-H Institute Scholar Stanley Qi and colleagues were able to change the spatial organization of DNA in cell nuclei and show how physical relocation altered cell function.
Oct 8 2018 | Stanford News
ChEM-H faculty fellow Ovijit Chaudhuri and ChEM-H CBI graduate student Kolade Adebowale are co-authors on a recent Nature Communications paper describing breast cancer cell migration.
Learn more about all that Stanford ChEM-H and Baker Family Co-Director Carolyn Bertozzi are doing to connect basic scientists, engineers, and clinicians to advance human health.
Oct 2 2018 | Stanford Medicine
ChEM-H faculty fellow Alice Ting is among eight Stanford School of Medicine researchers awarded High-Risk, High-Reward Research grants from the NIH. Ting will use her grant to understand how different organ systems communicate with one another.
