Stanford’s new coronavirus treatment approach: Hit hard — and early

A new clinical trial at Stanford University is part of an emerging movement to find COVID-19 medicines that can be given almost immediately after infection, before the virus gains a firm foothold in the body. Learn more.


The STOP-PASC trial is a Phase 2 randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study to evaluate the efficacy of PAXLOVID as a treatment to reduce symptoms of Long COVID, compared to placebo. An exploratory sub-study will investigate the correlation of physical activity and biometric parameters from digital wearable devices including smartwatches with the patient-reported outcomes of the main study. 

CardioHealth Alliance

CardioHealth Alliance is a new alliance with a platform to consider clinical research across the consortium.  

“The CardioHealth Alliance is focused on taking new approaches to the clinical study and implementation of heart health care. Together, we are focused on disrupting how we prevent and care for this pervasive disease which costs substantial loss of life, as well as billions of dollars each year in health care.” - Dr. Ken Mahaffey, MD, Director, Stanford Center for Clinical Research

2nd SCCR Research Conference

Thursday September 8, 2022

We are excited to have the SCCR second in-person conference and have invited the faculty, researchers and SCCR collaborators and their teams from across the School of Medicine to attend and present at the 2nd SCCR Research Conference. SCCR’s 1st research conference was in 2019 and was a great success with almost 20 posters presented. 

Research staff will have an opportunity to present a scientific poster on a research study they are working on. This is a unique opportunity to showcase SCCR's Clinical Research Projects, recognize and celebrate the staff’s accomplishments and efforts, network across our organization and with our collaborators, and provide an opportunity for growth in scientific writing, data analysis, presentation skills and public speaking.  All staff were strongly encourage to put together a poster individually or jointly as a team to present the study they're working on.

The morning  started off with brief introductions by SCCR leadership, and a keynote speaker, Vice Chair and Director of FA from Department of Medicine, Cathy Garzio, MBA. There were 2 Poster sessions (a round-robin style of poster presentation) with about 9-10 scientic posters presented in each session.
