During the fifth annual Stanford ChEM-H Postdoc Retreat, postdocs presented their human health-centered research and learned about transitioning to academic or industry careers.
Stanford researchers, seeking ways to regenerate muscle after injury, find a promising method using collagen and vascular cells.
In this In the Spotlight Q&A, Daniel Bayless, a postdoctoral fellow in psychiatry and behavioral sciences, talks about his research on sex differences.
A team of Stanford researchers has developed a new model to more accurately identify proteins from a mass spectometry sample.

Impeding VCAM1, a protein that tethers circulating immune cells to blood vessel walls, enabled old mice to perform as well on memory and learning tests as young mice, a Stanford study found.
Old mice suffered far fewer senior moments on memory tests when Stanford investigators disabled a single molecule dotting the mice’s cerebral blood vessels.

Researchers don’t know much about how viruses like those that cause chicken pox infect cells. A super-cold form of electron microscopy could change that, potentially paving the way for new treatments and vaccines.
May 11 2019 | Stanford ChEM-H
In 2015, postdoctoral scholars Jennifer Cao and Cole Dovey met at the Stanford ChEM-H Postdoc Retreat and discovered that they shared an interest in cell death pathways. Funding from Stanford ChEM-H has brought their labs closer to understanding the different ways cells self-destruct.

Low oxygen levels during brain development may cause particular cells to differentiate too soon, a Stanford-led study found.
Using a lab model, Stanford researchers identified a type of developing brain cell that is profoundly changed by exposure to low oxygen levels.

In a Stanford study of 30 children with autism, intranasal vasopressin improved social skills more than a placebo, suggesting that the hormone may treat core features of the disorder.
May 2 2019 | Stanford Medicine
Stanford researchers have developed synthetic proteins that can rewire cancer cells in a lab dish by co-opting critical disease-associated pathways.
Stanford researchers have developed a technique to encourage the immune system to target a section of the flu virus that is conserved year to year.

Another year, another flu vaccine because so far scientists haven’t managed to make a vaccine that protects against all strains of flu. A new approach could end that ritual and protect against deadly pandemic flu.
Apr 24 2019 | Stanford ChEM-H
Stanford ChEM-H Institute Scholar Laura Dassama tells us about life as an assistant professor, what it means to think like a chemist when studying human health and disease, and what drew her to Stanford.
