Data science website launched
The online portal provides researchers with fast access to tools, data platforms, health-related databases and data-science experts.
How AI could help create antibiotics
Researchers at Stanford have created an algorithm that, guided by previous research, lays out the DNA sequences most likely to align with antimicrobial properties.
Algorithm success in screening for disease
In a matter of seconds, a new algorithm read chest X-rays for 14 pathologies, performing as well as radiologists in most cases, a Stanford-led study says.
EHRs for Fido

Farming linked to gut microbiome changes
Researchers at Stanford and several other institutions have linked the gut ecosystems of four Himalayan groups to the extent of each group’s departure from a hunter-gatherer lifestyle.
Older dads linked to higher birth risks
From the data of more than 40 million births, scientists at Stanford have linked paternal age to birth risks, and even risks to the mother’s health.
Symposium addresses electronic health records
The daylong event touched on fixing inefficiencies in EHRs, harnessing data for population health management, building on successes and overcoming obstacles.
