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.
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'...
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.
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.
