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.
ChEM-H faculty fellows Alex Dunn, Beth Pruitt, and William Weis study the mechanics of molecules, cells, and tissues. The field of "mechanobiology" has significant implications for the advancement of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.
ChEM-H faculty fellow Stephen Quake contributed to a recent Cell paper that describes the first blueprint showing how specific gene/protein activity correlates with the biological wiring in an organism’s nervous system.
Stanford postdoc Louise Kiru reports on a new tool for studying gut bacteria implicated in inflammatory bowel disease. This technique was developed by ChEM-H Faculty Fellow Justin Sonnenburg and his group.
Tracing the genetic process through which parakeets produce either yellow or blue feathers has given Stanford scientists insights that could help them uncover other biochemical pathways.

If you have ever wondered why some parakeets are green and others are blue,...
