News office receives six awards
The office received four golds, one silver and one bronze in the annual competition sponsored by the Association of American Medical Colleges.
Bundle of cells produces pain aversion
Pain sensation and the emotional experience of pain are not the same, and now, in mice, scientists at Stanford have found the neurons responsible for the latter.
CAR-T cells for pediatric solid tumors
In mouse studies, a Stanford-led team has developed an engineered immune cell that eliminates several types of childhood tumors. The innovation may help patients with relapsed or metastatic disease.
Social- versus food-related brain cells
Researchers at Stanford demonstrated that direct stimulation of fewer than two dozen neurons linked to social interaction was enough to suppress a mouse’s drive to feed itself.
New channel for fun at Packard Children’s
Broadcast programs designed for and featuring patients at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford now air from the hospital’s new studio.
Despite MS, Eric Sibley prevails
Eric Sibley was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis just as his career in pediatric gastroenterology was taking off. But in his unique circumstances, he unlocked his potential as an academic advisor and role model.
Telehealth for young patients
Digital health technology is helping Stanford Children’s Health offer patients and their families better access to Stanford Medicine pediatric experts.
Radiotherapy in less than a second
SLAC and Stanford researchers have secured funding for two projects that share one goal: to reduce the side effects of radiation therapy by vastly shrinking the length of a typical session.
Researchers create wireless blood flow sensor
Transforming super-sensitive touch sensors, Stanford engineers and medical researchers have built a device to wirelessly monitor blood flow after surgery.
How bacteria harness fluid currents
Figuring out how bacteria bring in nutrients could point to ways of killing them without poison. More generally, this research could also reveal how small organisms cooperate by generating networks of flow patterns.
