Aug 30 2019 | Scope
A new wireless system developed by Stanford engineers detects health indicators like pulse and respiration from the skin via wearable stickers.
Aug 29 2019 | Scope
The conclusion of this series examines the benefits, and drawbacks, of probiotics. Stanford researchers clarify whether probiotics really improve health.
Aug 28 2019 | Scope
A team of Stanford scientists have devised a new imaging technology that harnesses ultrasound and photoacoustics to detect prostate cancer earlier.
Aug 27 2019 | Stanford News
Immunotherapy has great promise as a cancer treatment, but current therapies only work in some. Now, Stanford researchers are testing the idea that microorganisms in our guts might be the deciding factor.
The Myc oncogene helps cancer cells stockpile the fat, or lipids, necessary for rapid growth. Blocking this activity causes human tumors in mice to shrink.
Aug 26 2019 | Scope
Scientists have used CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing technology to decipher the genes critical to the success of a type of cancer drug, antibody-drug conjugates.
Aug 26 2019 | Stanford News
Despite its abundance, water retains a great many secrets. Among them, Stanford chemists have discovered, is that water microdroplets spontaneously produce hydrogen peroxide.
Aug 19 2019 | Stanford News
In the third in a series on what the lives of Stanford researchers actually look like, chemists Noah Burns, Laura Dassama, Michael Fayer and Hemamala Karunadasa talk about their paths into the field, the joys of making new molecules and the way in which “the central science” pervades our lives.
Aug 19 2019 | Stanford News
Finding a treatment for a devastating, incurable citrus disease was personal for Sharon Long and Melanie Barnett. Now, a system they developed could provide clues to a cure.
Aug 16 2019 | Stanford News
Stanford engineers have developed experimental stickers that pick up physiological signals emanating from the skin, then wirelessly beam these health readings to a receiver clipped onto clothing. It’s all part of a system called BodyNet.
During a recent episode of "The Future of Everything," host Russ Altman and guest Ami Bhatt discuss the factors that contribute to microbiome health.
Aug 13 2019 | Stanford News
The Stanford Microbiome Therapies Initiative is backed by gifts from Marc and Lynne Benioff and Mark and Debra Leslie and is focused on developing and testing new disease therapies
The bacteria in our gut make tiny, previously unidentified proteins that could shed light on human health and advance drug development.
Aug 8 2019 | Stanford Medicine
The bacteria in our gut make thousands of tiny, previously unidentified proteins that could shed light on human health and advance drug development, Stanford researchers have found.
Aug 8 2019 | Stanford ChEM-H
Stanford ChEM-H Institute Scholar Michael Fischbach explains why the microbiome is worth studying, the ways his lab hopes to advance our understanding of these complex communities, and how the people and mission of ChEM-H drew him to Stanford.
Aug 7 2019 | Stanford Medicine
Applying a gel to internal tissues of animals after cardiac surgery significantly limits the formation of adhesions, a problematic form of scar tissue, Stanford researchers have found.
Stanford researchers discover a gel that, when applied to animal hearts, vastly reduces the formation of adhesions, scar tissue that cause complications.
Aug 7 2019 | Stanford Medicine
Stanford researchers have identified immune cells that help reduce the severity of a disease in mice akin to multiple sclerosis. These cells could one day be useful therapeutic targets in treating autoimmune diseases.
Stanford researchers watch in real time bacteria building their protective outer shell. Their findings may help develop treatments for bacterial pathogens.
Jul 17 2019 | Stanford ChEM-H
Postdoc Monica Olcina and Ryan Kim BS ’17 speak about their work in enhancing patient responses to radiation, how their collaboration has evolved, and the importance of medical research.
