How a nonprofit gave birth to a company that aims to disrupt Big Pharma.
Oct 17 2019 | Stanford News
By scooping the guts out of bacteria and refilling them with an expansive fluid, scientists can discover whether a microbe is structurally strong or weak, gaining insights that could help fight infectious diseases or aid studies of the beneficial bacterial communities known as microbiomes.
Scientists at Stanford have developed a new PET scan tracer that flags both pancreatic cancer and a lung disease known as idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.
Oct 15 2019 | Stanford Medicine
At the annual assembly, Stanford Medicine leaders provided updates on the new Stanford Hospital and other construction projects, and scientists recounted research advances made possible by a colleague’s tissue donation.
