News and Press Releases

Mar 18 2019 | Stanford Medicine
Stanford scientists were able to engineer immune cells known as macrophages to detect and flag cancer in mice. The researchers hope the technique can be used for early cancer diagnostics in humans.
Mar 14 2019 | Stanford Medicine
Stanford researchers have found a way to predict who will suffer heart problems from a common breast-cancer drug, as well as identified an FDA-approved medication that could mitigate those side effects.
In a recent study, Stanford researchers have revealed a method that could help doctors predict which patients will experience chemo-associated toxicity, and which will not.
To study the effects of nicotine use in pregnant women, Stanford ChEM-H Faculty Fellow Joseph Wu and colleagues developed an "embryoid in a dish," a clump of stem cells that mimics the developing fetus.
Stanford ChEM-H Faculty Fellow Chris Garcia has uncovered a detailed structure of interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma), a signaling protein critical to the body's immune responses. This information could help scientists develop strategies to boost immune responses without inadvertently dampening them.
A team led by ChEM-H Faculty Fellow Calvin Kuo has discovered a way to invert enteroids, lab-cultured spheres that mimic intestinal tissue. The exposed inner surface provides a new platform to study how intestinal lining interacts with drugs and pathogens.
Feb 20 2019 | Stanford ChEM-H
Stanford ChEM-H has funded five innovative collaborations involving a scientist or engineer and clinician to solve big problems in human health.
Feb 14 2019 | Stanford Engineering
In his own words, Chemical Engineering PhD candidate and Chemistry/Biology Interface trainee Kolade Adebowale talks about his passion for understanding and solving some of the biggest health problems.
Feb 12 2019 | Stanford ChEM-H
A group led by ChEM-H Institute Scholar Lingyin Li and Chemistry/Biology Interface graduate student Jacqueline Carozza has found a molecule that could help undermine cancer's defenses.
Research led by Stanford ChEM-H Faculty Fellow Denise Monack suggests that Western diets that are high in fat and sugar and low in fiber could make humans more likely to develop severe sepsis.
Feb 8 2019 | Stanford ChEM-H
Institute Scholar and assistant professor of pathology Jon Long talks about what brought him to ChEM-H, the collaborations he has built so far, and the "Wild West" of human metabolism.
In a recent paper, ChEM-H Faculty Fellow Judith Frydman shows that inhibiting the human host protein could represent a new--and potentially less drug-resistant--Zika vaccine.
Feb 5 2019 | Stanford Medicine
Timothy Cornell, Kevin Shea, Joanna Wysocka and Tony Wyss-Coray have been appointed to endowed professorships.
Two instructors revamped a core course in Chemical Engineering to lighten up on lectures and instead coach students on how to design and troubleshoot their own experiments.
Jan 31 2019 | Stanford Medicine
The discovery, by Stanford researchers, of neurons that drive mice’s innate ability to identify the sex of other mice highlights the importance of biological influences on sex-specific behaviors.
Jan 30 2019 | Stanford Medicine
Stanford ChEM-H Faculty Fellow Justin Annes discusses the importance of collaborative, interdisciplinary research and how ChEM-H has made his research program in diabetes and hereditary endocrine disorders possible in the Stanford Department of Medicine 2019 Annual Report.
Jan 29 2019 | Stanford Medicine
Stanford researchers have identified 20 genes that can predict an individual’s likelihood of developing a severe form of dengue fever with about 80 percent accuracy.
In a study co-led by Stanford ChEM-H Faculty Fellow Purvesh Khatri, researchers identified 20 genes that help predict the severity of dengue fever before the onset of telltale symptoms.
Jan 28 2019 | Stanford Medicine
Studying human oligodendrocytes, which provide insulation for nerve cells, has been challenging. But a new way of generating stem-cell-derived, three-dimensional brain-cell cultures is paying off.
Jan 24 2019 | Stanford News
Stanford ChEM-H Faculty Fellow Sharon Long was awarded the 2019 Selman A. Waksman Award in Microbiology from the National Academy of Sciences for her pioneering work in symbiosis.
