$50 million gift to Children’s Heart Center
The donation from philanthropists Gordon and Betty Moore is the largest gift to Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford since the hospital’s founding gift.
Automating biology experiments with Legos
Modern biology labs often use robotic assemblies to drop precise amounts of fluids into experimental containers. Now, researchers have shown how to adapt a Lego robotics kit to do this for much less money.
Brainlike computers come of age
Conventional computer chips aren’t up to the challenges posed by next-generation autonomous drones and medical implants. Now, Kwabena Boahen has laid out a way forward, using ideas built in to our brains.
3-D bladder reconstruction
Researchers used advanced computer imaging technology to create a three-dimensional computer reconstruction of a patient’s bladder. The technique, which works on any hollow organ, could help doctors locate tumors or other disorders and prepare for surgery.
Minor reappointed med school dean
In his first four years at Stanford, Lloyd Minor has established the vision of precision health while also strengthening the ties within Stanford Medicine and promoting diversity.
Mom’s CPR saves son
Jose Agredano Jr. got CPR from his mother after being struck in the chest by the ball during a soccer game — an impact that triggered a rare and often lethal medical condition.
A call to harness mindset for healing
Researchers encourage more health care providers to place emphasis on the importance of people’s mindsets and social context in healing.
Accelerating discovery by orders of magnitude
Polly Fordyce and her team use microfluidic tools to understand protein interactions in the body — knowledge that could help researchers develop therapeutics for a variety of diseases.
Experts: Funding ban harms women
“The reinstatement of the Mexico City policy is a stark example of ‘evidence-free’ policy making that ignores the best scientific data,” Nathan Lo and Michele Barry write.
Virtual reality helps surgery
Gina Milner’s successful surgery, the first at Packard Children’s to use the new imaging technology, is one of many examples of how virtual-reality techniques are now helping patients.
Leading in Precision Health
Stanford Medicine is leading the biomedical revolution in precision health, defining and developing the next generation of care that is proactive, predictive and precise.
A Legacy of Innovation
