Drug Development

  • Stanford Medicine researchers devise a new artificial intelligence model, SyntheMol, which creates recipes for chemists to synthesize the drugs in the lab.

  • Drug ups production of anti-hunger molecule

    A Stanford Medicine study found that metformin, a commonly prescribed diabetes drug associated with moderate weight loss, stimulates production of lac-phe, a molecule abundant after exercise.

  • 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.

  • Nobelists credit basic research

    A two-day event at the Stanford School of Medicine brought together investors, regulators, company executives and scientists to discuss the most productive ways for them to work together.

  • Diabetes drug may treat heart disease

    A genetic variant that inhibits alcohol metabolism harms blood vessel cells, but an antidiabetic medication may mitigate the harm, Stanford Medicine-led research has found.

  • New way to treat COVID-19 smell loss

    In a trial led by Stanford Medicine researchers, more than half of patients with persistent smell loss saw improvement with injections of platelet-rich plasma.

  • Stanford and Invus collaborate

    The collaboration will enable the development of medications to treat a type of brain cancer.

  • How COVID-19 virus infects nasal cells

    A discovery by Stanford Medicine researchers and colleagues may pave the way for a “morning after” or prophylactic nasal spray to prevent infection.

  • Drug eases opioid withdrawal in babies

    In a new clinical trial, Stanford Medicine researchers found that a commonly used anti-nausea drug could reduce the severity of opioid withdrawal in newborns.

  • Targeting enzyme that fuels cancer cells

    Stanford Medicine researchers have created a molecule that blocks an enzyme thought to be instrumental in causing colon cancer relapse or chemotherapy resistance.

  • ‘Military police’ cells stem autoimmunity

    A new study has identified a way that the immune system shoots down its own cells when their anti-viral activity threatens to become friendly fire. The finding could pave the way to new treatments for autoimmune diseases.

  • Common genetic profile linked to drug reaction

    New medications help many people with inflammatory conditions and may ease severe COVID-19, but they carry risks.
