We are in the middle of a biomedical revolution more profound and far-reaching than the industrial and digital revolutions that made it possible. Over the past two decades, biomedical knowledge has grown exponentially, giving us utterly new insights into how life works.

The Century of Biology

Stanford Medicine is uniquely poised to lead the biomedical revolution and secure its promise for future generations.

Over the last 60 years, our unrivaled atmosphere of interdisciplinary exploration and collaboration has produced many of the innovations that sparked this revolution: MRIs, gene splicing and stem cell medicine were all born on our campus. Today, that same atmosphere, amplified by the astounding intellectual, technological, and financial capital that surrounds us in Silicon Valley, gives us an unprecedented opportunity.
