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.
ChEM-H faculty fellow Zhenan Bao and her team published a recent Nature paper describing the creation of a stretchable, touch-sensitive circuitry. This breakthrough material could lead to the development of skin-like coverings for prosthetics.
ChEM-H faculty fellow Joseph Wu and his colleagues found that priming the immune system with induced pluripotent stem cells prevented or slowed the development of cancer in mice. This discovery could lead to the creation of an anti-cancer vaccine.
ChEM-H faculty fellow Tim Stearns co-developed a new Stanford course designed to teach undergraduates how to use the tools of science to reach a definitive answer, rather than memorizing existing knowledge.
ChEM-H faculty fellow Stanley Qi and his team used gene-editing techniques to create human immune cells that target and kill cancerous cells, such as leukemia. The approach could be adapted to an array of diseases ranging from solid tumors to neurological and autoimmune disorders.
