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.
Words in brain beamed to computer screen
Our brains remember how to formulate words even if the muscles responsible for saying them out loud are incapacitated. A brain-computer hookup is making the dream of restoring speech a reality.
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.
Gene fingerprint for brain aging
A study in mice finds that white matter — the tissue that transmits messages around the brain — shows the greatest changes as the animals age.
HIMSS Davies Award
Stanford Medicine receives a prestigious honor for its use of technology to improve patient care.
Male brain center for libido and pleasure
A team of Stanford Medicine researchers have shown in male mice that a particular neuronal circuit is responsible for sexual arousal and for the actions and pleasure that ensue, opening avenues for treatment in men.
Abortion bans’ effect on heart defect
Abortion restrictions will increase the number of newborns with serious heart defects, which could strain hospital resources already in short supply, according to a Stanford Medicine study.
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.
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.
Stanford Medicine scientists describe details of the human intestine and placental tissue as part of the National Institute of Health’s Human Biomolecular Atlas Program.
Richard Jaffe dies at 75
The Stanford Medicine professor was well known for his friendly presence as well as expertise in neuroanesthesia and operating room technology.
