Brain tumors integrate in neural wiring
Tumors called high-grade gliomas wire themselves into the healthy brain, receiving and interpreting electrical signals from normal neurons, a Stanford study has found.
Magazine features projects that add value to care
The new issue of Stanford Medicine magazine highlights tools and wellness initiatives at Stanford that are aimed at adding value to health care and addressing the individual needs of patients.
Hematologist Stanley Schrier dies
A founding member of the Division of Hematology at Stanford, Schrier was an educator, mentor and investigator who trained generations of physicians and scientists.
Gut bugs influence flu vaccine response
Decimating levels of intestinal bacteria with antibiotics reduced the immune system’s responsiveness to a seasonal influenza vaccination, a Stanford-led study found.
Inflammation turns mutation deadly
A simple viral infection in the lungs of rats can become a lethal form of pulmonary hypertension if a common mutation is present, new Stanford research shows.
Stanford chemist James Trudell dies
For five decades, James Trudell studied how anesthetics work on the human body to cause unconsciousness.
Irving Weissman honored for stem cell, cancer work
Weissman and Johns Hopkins’ Bert Vogelstein will share the 2019 Albany Medical Center Prize in Medicine and Biomedical Research for discoveries in stem cell and cancer biology.
Scientists boost neuron recovery in rats
Stanford researchers blocked a molecule to help restore neurons in rats in which the flow of fresh blood to the brain was reduced. The approach could lead to new treatments for people who have suffered a stroke or cardiac arrest.
Tiny microbial proteins may affect human health
The bacteria in and on our bodies make thousands of tiny, previously unidentified proteins that could shed light on human health and advance drug development, Stanford researchers have found.
Gel reduces post-surgery scar tissue
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.
