The vast majority of bacteria that live inside us are not invasive, but rather quite the opposite.
Sep 12 2019 | Scope
Mammalian cells use a label to distinguish self from non-self circular RNA molecules. Foreign molecules can trigger anti-cancer immune responses.
Sep 5 2019 | Stanford Medicine
Decimating levels of intestinal bacteria with antibiotics reduced the immune system’s responsiveness to a seasonal influenza vaccination, a Stanford-led study found.
Sep 5 2019 | Scope
The best time to get a flu shot is when you haven't had antibiotics recently, a new study has found, because healthy gut bacteria protect immunity.
Sep 5 2019 | Stanford Medicine
An image of a mesa that came to a scientist in his sleep sparks insight into a deadly heart disorder

Though vaping is thought by some to be safer than smoking cigarettes, new research suggests that the flavorings in the liquid inhaled by users present heart-damaging risks beyond the negative effects of nicotine. By Krista Conger
Sep 5 2019 | Stanford Medicine
Next-generation biobanking is bridging the gap between research and patients.
Aug 30 2019 | Scope
A new wireless system developed by Stanford engineers detects health indicators like pulse and respiration from the skin via wearable stickers.
Aug 29 2019 | Scope
The conclusion of this series examines the benefits, and drawbacks, of probiotics. Stanford researchers clarify whether probiotics really improve health.
Aug 28 2019 | Scope
A team of Stanford scientists have devised a new imaging technology that harnesses ultrasound and photoacoustics to detect prostate cancer earlier.
Aug 27 2019 | Stanford News
Immunotherapy has great promise as a cancer treatment, but current therapies only work in some. Now, Stanford researchers are testing the idea that microorganisms in our guts might be the deciding factor.
The Myc oncogene helps cancer cells stockpile the fat, or lipids, necessary for rapid growth. Blocking this activity causes human tumors in mice to shrink.
Aug 26 2019 | Scope
Scientists have used CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing technology to decipher the genes critical to the success of a type of cancer drug, antibody-drug conjugates.
Aug 26 2019 | Stanford News
Despite its abundance, water retains a great many secrets. Among them, Stanford chemists have discovered, is that water microdroplets spontaneously produce hydrogen peroxide.
Aug 19 2019 | Stanford News
In the third in a series on what the lives of Stanford researchers actually look like, chemists Noah Burns, Laura Dassama, Michael Fayer and Hemamala Karunadasa talk about their paths into the field, the joys of making new molecules and the way in which “the central science” pervades our lives.
Aug 19 2019 | Stanford News
Finding a treatment for a devastating, incurable citrus disease was personal for Sharon Long and Melanie Barnett. Now, a system they developed could provide clues to a cure.
Aug 16 2019 | Stanford News
Stanford engineers have developed experimental stickers that pick up physiological signals emanating from the skin, then wirelessly beam these health readings to a receiver clipped onto clothing. It’s all part of a system called BodyNet.
During a recent episode of "The Future of Everything," host Russ Altman and guest Ami Bhatt discuss the factors that contribute to microbiome health.
