Sleep medicine pioneer Guilleminault dies
Christian Guilleminault, a prolific researcher who helped build Stanford’s sleep disorders clinic into an influential, full-service sleep center, died July 9 of cancer.
ADHD impairs school readiness
In a Stanford study, 79 percent of preschoolers with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder were not ready for school, compared with 13 percent of other children.
Neuron-nudged mice see what isn’t there
Stanford scientists, using only direct brain stimulation, reproduced both the brain dynamics and the behavioral response of mice taught to discriminate between two different images.
East Bay oncology joint venture in works
Stanford Health Care and Sutter Health intend to expand and enhance clinical integration toward a shared goal of providing coordinated, seamless cancer care in the East Bay.
Possible drug target for cardiomyopathy
Stanford researchers have uncovered how a genetic mutation contributes to a heart disease known as familial dilated cardiomyopathy. Existing drugs correct the defect in heart cells grown in a petri dish, suggesting a new therapeutic target.
At new hospital, hard hats (mostly) come off
The new Stanford Hospital, which is scheduled to open to patients in the fall, has received the go-ahead to occupy the hospital while minor finishing work continues.
Limiting abortion funding leads to more abortions
A U.S. foreign policy opposing abortion has resulted in less funding for family planning and birth control, leading to more unwanted pregnancies, a Stanford study found.
Sleep patterns of fish resemble land animals’
Researchers have found that brain patterns in sleeping zebrafish are similar to those of land vertebrates, suggesting that such sleep signatures developed before aquatic and land animals diverged.
Inner ear hair cells regenerated
Researchers at Stanford have found a way to regenerate hair cells in the vestibular system of the mouse ear, with implications for treating dizziness.
Dynamic predictions help patients
Using in-game win probability techniques, Stanford researchers devised a way to better predict a cancer patient’s outcome at any point during treatment. The approach could also inform treatment decisions.
Leading in Precision Health
Stanford Medicine is leading the biomedical revolution in precision health, defining and developing the next generation of care that is proactive, predictive and precise.
