  • $10 million for autism, sleep research

    About 80% of children with autism have trouble sleeping, but whether better sleep could lessen other autism symptoms is unknown. A new grant will help Stanford Medicine scientists find out.

  • COVID-19 virus can infect fat tissue

    Stanford Medicine scientists’ findings could explain why obese people have a higher risk of SARS-CoV-2 infection and are more likely to progress to severe disease and die of infection.

  • Physicians feel more unaccomplished

    In what authors believe to be the largest study of its kind, Stanford Medicine researchers found that imposter syndrome is more prevalent in physicians than in other U.S. workers.

  • Howard Sussman dies at 87

    Howard Sussman played a pivotal role in consolidating and automating Stanford Medicine’s clinical pathology laboratory, implementing an information system used for decades.

  • Fish study rebuts anti-evolution argument

    A key developmental gene governs the number and length of spines in the stickleback, Stanford Medicine researchers find. The discovery supports the concept of progressive evolution in nature.

  • Step toward growing organs

    Researchers have shown initial viability of an embryo that contains both chimpanzee and macaque cells in a preliminary study that explores the feasibility of primate organ genesis.

  • Blood sugar control helps teens’ brains

    Diabetes treatment technology improved teenagers’ blood sugar levels and benefited their brain structure and function, according to a study led by Stanford Medicine researchers.

  • White coats mark beginning of study

    Stanford Medicine MD and PA students from diverse backgrounds commemorate their past and future at this year’s white coat ceremonies.

  • Expert committee on reproductive health

    A new Stanford Medicine committee is addressing medical, equity, safety, legal and other concerns arising from the Supreme Court ruling on abortion.

  • Viral genome packing key in replication

    Disrupting a virus’s genome packaging can halt replication and jumpstart a natural immune response against subsequent exposures, a Stanford Medicine study finds.
