The award will facilitate a clinical trial testing the safety of CAR-T cells — immune cells from patients’ own bodies that have been bioengineered to destroy cancer cells — used to treat a deadly brain cancer.
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.
An LGBTQ-inclusive data set
Previous large health studies didn’t collect sexual orientation and gender identity information. A Stanford Medicine study finds the All of Us Research Program a boon to LGBTQ health researchers, future health outcomes.
IVF screening reduces costs
Stanford Medicine researchers find that using in vitro fertilization with testing embryos for inherited diseases would significantly reduce costs.
