Real-time targeting of tumors
New technology combines radiotherapy with real-time detection of cancer cells to target moving tumors or multiple metastases. Stanford Medicine is the first to research the technology in the clinic.
AI could inform brain cancer prognosis
Stanford Medicine scientists and colleagues create an algorithm that could help physicians better understand and target complicated brain tumors.
Tumor suppressor repairs tissue
The tumor suppressor p53 has been in the limelight for decades. But its cancer-fighting function may be only a side effect of its role in tissue repair, a Stanford Medicine study finds.
Cancer center renovation
The Laurie K. Lacob Pavilion at the Stanford Medicine Cancer Center opened July 17. The state-of-the-art facility, for transplant and cellular therapies, is a light-filled space for healing.
Predictable mutations chart cancer’s path
Human cells evolving in the laboratory undergo a series of predictable, sequential genetic changes that lead to pre-cancer. Blocking these changes may allow intervention before cancer occurs.
VA, Stanford Medicine cancer collab
An anticipated growth in veterans seeking cancer care catalyzes talks to develop state-of-the-art collaboration between VA and Stanford Medicine.
Extra income and cancer risk factors
Cancer disproportionately impacts persistently impoverished communities. A federal grant unites Stanford Medicine, UC Davis and UCSF to study income supplementation and cancer risk factors.
IMA, Intonation to collaborate
The goal of the collaboration is to rapidly improve care for patients with tumors that form from hormone-releasing cells.
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.
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.
