A new Stanford study identified a molecule that offers natural protection against Salmonella bacteria. Co-authors of the interdisciplinary paper include four ChEM-H faculty fellows and scientists from the ChEM-H Medicinal Chemistry Knowledge Center.
ChEM-H seed grant winners Eric Kool and Kenneth Weinberg are developing a test for aldehydes in blood. This new test could aid in the development of treatments to stop aldehyde-induced DNA damage in patients with Fanconi anemia and help millions who are at risk of aldehyde-related cancers.
ChEM-H faculty fellow Polly Fordyce discusses her recent paper published in PNAS. Co-authors include ChEM-H postdoc mentor and undergraduate scholar pair, Daniel Le and Allison Keys, and CBI graduate student, Arjun Aditham.
ChEM-H faculty fellow K.C. Huang and researchers in his lab have discovered a genetic “tuning knob” that can increase the size of harmful bacteria like E. coli, making them more susceptible to antibiotics.
ChEM-H faculty fellow Jennifer Cochran discusses the development of new methods for treating cancer. These methods aim to treat cancer with more precision and fewer side-effects than existing treatments.
