  • Stanford Medicine magazine

    The new issue of Stanford Medicine features articles on reducing the environmental impact of health care, updating medical education and protecting human health amid environmental challenges.

  • Few receive genetic tests for cancer

    A new study finds surprisingly low genetic testing rates for cancer patients who may benefit, especially among Asian, Black and Hispanic patients.

  • New pediatric emergency department opens

    The Marc and Laura Andreessen Pediatric Emergency Department at Stanford Medicine opened in 2022. This child-centered space puts young ones at ease while advanced care is delivered.

  • Personalized PSA improves cancer screening

    The solution to the overdiagnosis and overtreatment of prostate cancer could lie in every man’s genome. Stanford Medicine researchers take a step toward genetically personalized cancer screening.

  • William Robinson, pioneering virologist

    Hard-driving molecular virologist who used ‘advanced chemistry to unlock the tightly held secrets of viruses’ was also a hearty mountain man, scaling peaks in Alaska and Nepal.

  • Screening for chronic kidney disease

    Many people don’t know they have chronic kidney disease until it progresses. A new study by Stanford Medicine researchers finds that screening would increase life expectancy in a cost-effective way.
