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.
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.
A team led by Nicholas Melosh, ChEM-H faculty fellow and associate professor of materials science and engineering, has shown that minuscule nanostraws could be used to deliver therapeutic molecules into cells.
Understanding when and where proteins bind to DNA may be the ticket to identifying cancer at the cellular level, according to researchers at Stanford. The study is co-authored by ChEM-H faculty fellow Howard Chang.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
As chemist Carolyn Bertozzi takes on a new role as Baker Family Co-Director, Stanford ChEM-H, she talks about bridging gaps between chemistry research and medical practice and preparing graduate students for the future.
