Four medical school professors elected fellows of AAAS
Russ Altman, Sanjiv Gambhir, Michael Snyder and William Talbot have been elected fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
Blistering skin disease may be treatable with ‘therapeutic reprogramming,’ researchers say
In laboratory experiments, researchers were able to correct a collagen defect — the source of a blistering skin disease — in stem cells made from patients.
Expert pilots process multiple visual cues more efficiently, Stanford and VA scientists find
A new study has found that expert pilots’ brains process visual data more efficiently, allowing them time to make better decisions when landing.
An enzyme that fixes broken DNA sometimes destroys it instead, researchers find
The discovery of a new mechanism of DNA damage could offer new insights into cancer and neurodegenerative disease, and also reveals a surprising role for messenger RNA, the molecule that forms the genetic transcript.
Physician who treated Ebola patients emerges from quarantine to hero’s welcome
Home after treating Ebola patients in Liberia, Colin Bucks, MD, continues to help in the fight against the disease.
Bill Newsome on Stanford's "Big Ideas" and the state of neuroscience
Bill Newsome, PhD, is challenging faculty to think broadly about the intersections of neuroscience with society, engineering, medicine, and other fields, through the Stanford Neuroscience Institute's Big Ideas initiative.
Seed grants available for Ebola-related projects
Stanford faculty, students and staff are eligible for the grants, which must be multidisciplinary in nature and include at least two individuals from different disciplines at the university.
Pluripotent cells created by nuclear transfer can prompt immune reaction, researchers find
Stanford researchers find that genetic differences in mitochondria contained in egg cells used in a process known as nuclear transfer can prompt rejection by the immune system in mice.
Of mice and men: Researchers compare mammals’ genomes to aid human clinical research
Comparing the human genome with the mouse genome reveals both shared general principles and important differences in how each species’ genes are regulated.
‘Big data’ approach helps pinpoint possible new stent drug to prevent heart attacks
Replacing the current drug used to coat artery-opening stents with a drug more targeted to the actual cause of stent disease could reduce blood clots and heart attacks, researchers say.
Leading the Biomedical Revolution
We are in the middle of a biomedical revolution more profound and far-reaching than the industrial and digital revolutions that made it possible.
A Legacy of Innovation
Stanford Medicine's unrivaled atmosphere of breakthrough thinking and interdisciplinary collaboration has fueled a long history of achievements.
