ChEM-H faculty fellow, Polly Fordyce, launches a new course aimed at pairing students interested in building tiny devices with scientists studying coral bleaching, parasites, molecular biology and more.
Stanford investigators fused two stem-cell-derived neural spheroids, each containing a different type of human neuron, then watched as one set of neurons migrated and hooked up with the other set.

The Chan Zuckerberg Biohub has announced 19 Stanford faculty among its first cohort of 47 investigators from Bay Area university collaborators. These investigators will work toward curing, preventing and managing every disease.
Stanford bioengineers have developed an ultra-low-cost, human-powered blood centrifuge. With rotational speeds of up to 125,000 revolutions per minute, the device separates blood plasma from red cells in 1.5 minutes, no electricity required.
Seven researchers at Stanford have received awards totaling $10.25 million from the National Institutes of Health to explore bold approaches to major research challenges.
The Stanford recipients are among 88 scientists nationwide to receive Pioneer, New Innovator, Transformative Research and...
Nick Cox is a chemist and postdoctoral scholar in the Stanford ChEM-H Medicinal Chemistry Knowledge Center. For the past two years, he has helped the Jennifer Cochran lab develop a novel molecular warhead to deliver drugs to cancer cells without harming healthy cells.
Transferring stool from a healthy mouse to a sick mouse that suffers from gastrointestinal infections promotes a quick return of health by restoring its gut to a more normal state, Stanford research shows

Scientists at Stanford University have found that proteins in an animal’s...
Protein are responsible for a variety of essential jobs inside cells—they carry messages, defend against pathogens, and act as microscopic chemists. Furthermore, their malfunction can cause diseases ranging from Alzheimer’s to diabetes. To perform their roles and maintain healthy cells, proteins...
A team of Stanford ChEM-H scientists has discovered a novel form of cancer immunotherapy, which works by removing certain sugars from the surface of cancer cells and making those cells visible to the immune system.
