Cellular & Molecular Biology
A drug that boosts strength in injured or aging mice restores connections between nerves and muscle and suggests ways to combat weakness in humans due to aging, injury or disease.
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.
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.
IMA, Intonation to collaborate
The goal of the collaboration is to rapidly improve care for patients with tumors that form from hormone-releasing cells.
William Robinson, pioneering virologist
Hard-driving molecular virologist who used ‘advanced chemistry to unlock the tightly held secrets of viruses’ was also a hearty mountain man, scaling peaks in Alaska and Nepal.
How beneficial fats increase lifespan
Fat from olive oil and nuts boosts the numbers of two key cellular structures and protects membranes from damage, lengthening the lives of laboratory worms, Stanford Medicine-led study finds.
Nobelists credit basic research
A two-day event at the Stanford School of Medicine brought together investors, regulators, company executives and scientists to discuss the most productive ways for them to work together.
Agent Orange researcher dies
James Whitlock, MD, a professor emeritus of molecular pharmacology (now chemical and systems biology), who discovered the negative effects of dioxin on the human body, died at home.
Blood drop yields lots of data
Using a new technique called multi-omic microsampling, Stanford Medicine researchers can measure thousands of protein, fat and metabolic molecules from a single drop of blood.
Mice with diabetes regain blood sugar control
A technique developed at Stanford Medicine allows mice with diabetes to accept unmatched islet cells and durably restores blood sugar control without immunosuppression or graft-versus-host disease.
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.
Magazine explores molecules within us
The new issue of Stanford Medicine magazine features articles about the molecules that make us who we are and how understanding them can lead to medical discoveries and innovations.
