New research suggests that lung fibrosis develops when scar tissue cells escape immune surveillance, suggesting potential therapy.
The Stanford developmental biologist was honored for a lifetime of work on the Wnt signaling pathway, which plays an important role in normal development and in cancer.
Old human cells can become more youthful by coaxing them to briefly express proteins used to make induced pluripotent cells, Stanford researchers and their colleagues have found. The finding may have implications for aging research.
Stanford data scientists have shown that figuring out a single number can help them find the most dangerous cancer cells.
