News and Press Releases

A team that includes Stanford ChEM-H Faculty Fellow Howard Chang has discovered a link between long non-coding RNAs and neurodevelopmental disorders like autism.
Stanford ChEM-H Faculty Fellow Daria Mochly-Rosen and colleagues developed a small molecule that could help prevent heart attack survivors from developing heart failure.
A multi-institution team that involved several Stanford authors, including Stanford ChEM-H Faculty Fellow Stephen Quake, developed a blood test that could detect signs of deadly lung transplant rejection before the patient starts showing symptoms.
Stanford ChEM-H Faculty Fellow Christopher Gardner shows in a recent paper that consuming a higher than recommended percentage of saturated fat might not be so bad if you maintain a diet that is low in carbohydrates and refined sugars.
A team led by Stanford ChEM-H Institute Scholar Stanley Qi have identified a potent tool for protecting cells from CRISPR-mediated gene editing.
Jan 8 2019 | Stanford News
Transforming super-sensitive touch sensors, Stanford engineers and medical researchers build a way to wirelessly monitor blood flow after surgery.
Dec 20 2018 | Stanford ChEM-H
Students in the Stanford ChEM-H Undergraduate Entrepreneurship Program have been awarded a grant to pursue their idea for a new biotechnology company.
Dec 14 2018 | Stanford News
Scientists at Stanford have solved a 50-year-old mystery that could open up new areas of research into muscle disorders. The study revealed a human enzyme that modifies muscle proteins to help them grow and remain strong.
ChEM-H faculty fellow Justin Annes and CBI trainee Timothy Horton knew they could get the pancreas produce more insulin by helping beta cells replicate, but selectively targeting beta cells over other cell types proved difficult. In this study, they find they solved the puzzle using these cells'...
Dec 10 2018 | Stanford Engineering
The new technique repurposes a common tool in biology that can help separate red blood cells from white blood cells or human cells from microbial cells.
Dec 6 2018 | Stanford Medicine
To treat diabetes directly, rather than manage its symptoms, doctors need a way to get drugs to cells that produce insulin. The key, Stanford researchers report, may be those cells’ affinity for zinc.
Dec 5 2018 | Stanford Medicine
A lowly sea creature may provide a way to understand our own blood-forming system, improve our immune function and find new immune-associated tools for biological discovery, Stanford researchers say.
Dec 4 2018 | Stanford ChEM-H
ChEM-H Institute Scholar Lingyin Li answers some questions about what brought her to ChEM-H, who her role models were growing up, and why she is so fascinated by the innate immune system, a “chemist’s playground.”
In a recent paper published in ACS Central Science, ChEM-H CBI trainee Elizabeth Webster, a graduate student in the lab of ChEM-H faculty fellow Steve Boxer, gets closer to understanding how the Zika virus infects cells.
Nov 28 2018 | Stanford News
A new discovery reveals how cells decide what to do with misshapen proteins – whether to salvage or destroy them – and could guide research into neurodegenerative diseases and other cellular processes.
Nov 21 2018 | Stanford News
Stanford researchers have developed an electronic glove that bestows robotic hands with some of the manual dexterity humans enjoy.
ChEM-H faculty fellow Zhenan Bao and her team developed a robotic hand with some human-like dexterity for handling delicate objects.
Nov 15 2018 | Stanford Medicine
Researchers at Stanford and several other institutions have linked the gut ecosystems of four Himalayan groups to the extent of each group’s departure from a hunter-gatherer lifestyle.
Nov 14 2018 | Stanford Medicine
The Stanford project, led by neuroscientists Tony Wyss-Coray and Marion Buckwalter, will focus on the influence of immune factors and systemic inflammation on the brain.
Nov 5 2018 | Stanford News
Chemists have modified a common antibiotic to make it more effective at fighting off one common type of antibiotic-resistant bacterium, known as MRSA.
