A group led by ChEM-H Institute Scholar Lingyin Li and Chemistry/Biology Interface graduate student Jacqueline Carozza has found a molecule that could help undermine cancer's defenses.
Research led by Stanford ChEM-H Faculty Fellow Denise Monack suggests that Western diets that are high in fat and sugar and low in fiber could make humans more likely to develop severe sepsis.
Feb 8 2019
Institute Scholar and assistant professor of pathology Jon Long talks about what brought him to ChEM-H, the collaborations he has built so far, and the "Wild West" of human metabolism.
In a recent paper, ChEM-H Faculty Fellow Judith Frydman shows that inhibiting the human host protein could represent a new--and potentially less drug-resistant--Zika vaccine.
Feb 5 2019 | Stanford Medicine
Timothy Cornell, Kevin Shea, Joanna Wysocka and Tony Wyss-Coray have been appointed to endowed professorships.
Two instructors revamped a core course in Chemical Engineering to lighten up on lectures and instead coach students on how to design and troubleshoot their own experiments.
Jan 31 2019 | Stanford Medicine
The discovery, by Stanford researchers, of neurons that drive mice’s innate ability to identify the sex of other mice highlights the importance of biological influences on sex-specific behaviors.
Jan 30 2019 | Stanford Medicine
Stanford ChEM-H Faculty Fellow Justin Annes discusses the importance of collaborative, interdisciplinary research and how ChEM-H has made his research program in diabetes and hereditary endocrine disorders possible in the Stanford Department of Medicine 2019 Annual Report.
Jan 29 2019 | Stanford Medicine
Stanford researchers have identified 20 genes that can predict an individual’s likelihood of developing a severe form of dengue fever with about 80 percent accuracy.
In a study co-led by Stanford ChEM-H Faculty Fellow Purvesh Khatri, researchers identified 20 genes that help predict the severity of dengue fever before the onset of telltale symptoms.
Jan 28 2019 | Stanford Medicine
Studying human oligodendrocytes, which provide insulation for nerve cells, has been challenging. But a new way of generating stem-cell-derived, three-dimensional brain-cell cultures is paying off.

Stanford ChEM-H Faculty Fellow Sharon Long was awarded the 2019 Selman A. Waksman Award in Microbiology from the National Academy of Sciences for her pioneering work in symbiosis.
A team that includes Stanford ChEM-H Faculty Fellow Howard Chang has discovered a link between long non-coding RNAs and neurodevelopmental disorders like autism.
Stanford ChEM-H Faculty Fellow Daria Mochly-Rosen and colleagues developed a small molecule that could help prevent heart attack survivors from developing heart failure.
A multi-institution team that involved several Stanford authors, including Stanford ChEM-H Faculty Fellow Stephen Quake, developed a blood test that could detect signs of deadly lung transplant rejection before the patient starts showing symptoms.
Stanford ChEM-H Faculty Fellow Christopher Gardner shows in a recent paper that consuming a higher than recommended percentage of saturated fat might not be so bad if you maintain a diet that is low in carbohydrates and refined sugars.
A team led by Stanford ChEM-H Institute Scholar Stanley Qi have identified a potent tool for protecting cells from CRISPR-mediated gene editing.
