Calming immune cells to treat stroke in mice
Instead of trying to fix stroke-damaged nerve cells, Stanford scientists took aim at a set of first-responder immune cells that live outside the brain but rush to the site of a stroke. It worked.
Stanford-led team awarded $10 million
Stanford scientists will direct a multidisciplinary, multi-institutional team focused on understanding in detail how tiny mutations in a protein, myosin, can cause the classic features of cardiomyopathy.
Gene networks and heart failure
A Stanford-led research team has mapped out a network of gene activity before and after heart failure to better understand how heart health declines.
Increasing diversity in genome studies
Data scientist Genevieve Wojcik speaks about the lack of diversity in genomewide association studies, why it’s a problem and how increasing diversity in these studies can elevate the entire population.
Using RNA for rare-disease diagnosis
Geneticist Stephen Montgomery explains why the transcriptome, the collection of RNA molecules in a cell, is a crucial piece of deciphering the source of rare diseases.
Students honored for community impact
Students at the medical school who served as exemplary leaders or developed programs for the community’s benefit were recognized by the Stanford Alumni Association.
Colorectal cancers often metastasize early
Colorectal cancers often spread before the initial tumor is detected, according to a new Stanford study. Identifying patients in whom early metastasis is likely could better guide treatment decisions.
111th diploma ceremony for med school
“In a world that encourages increasing specialization, hold on to that sense of being a student,” Stanford Provost Persis Drell told Stanford School of Medicine graduates.
Annual awards honor outstanding teaching, patient care
More than 50 faculty, staff members, residents and students were recognized with 2019 awards for outstanding contributions to the Stanford Medicine community.
Looking at cause of enlarged prostates
Stanford scientists have identified a genetic signature that signals enlarged prostate tissue. The discovery has helped them find possible drivers of the condition.
