  • Cell death via trigger waves

    In a cell, death is akin to falling dominoes: One death-inducing molecule activates another, and so on, until the entire cell is shut down, a new Stanford study finds.


  • New test for measuring aldehydes

    Fanconi anemia is a rare but deadly disease thought to be the result of aldehyde-induced DNA damage. Now, Stanford researchers are developing a test that could help kids with the disease and millions more with related conditions.


  • Stress hormone timing controls weight gain

    A circadian code controls the switch that produces fat cells, according to a new study by Stanford researchers.


  • Biomolecule lab opens

    The Macromolecular Structure Knowledge Center can help researchers who lack equipment for testing hundreds of different crystallization conditions or expertise in working with challenging molecules.
