Female scientists could be losing ground as a result of research funding review methods that favor men, two Stanford researchers say.
Scientists have created an algorithm that works to generate and refine DNA sequences that are likely to code for antimicrobial proteins.
If you happened to have dropped by the Apple Store in downtown San Francisco Monday evening, you might have caught sight of something out of …
You've already knew our modern high-fat, high-sugar, high-starch, minimal-fiber diet was going to be the death of us all, because you've been told a thousand times. Now, a new study in mice gives us yet another reason to watch our intake.
Antibody-based hematopoietic stem cell transplants may transform the treatment of patients with blood and immune diseases including cancers.
A team of researchers have found a new way to remove blood-producing stem cells, introducing the possibility of safer, and non-matched, transplants.
Patients who are taking the most common type of antidepressant may feel more pain when taking certain opioids, Stanford researchers have found.
Stanford scientists have dug up a defect at the heart of rheumatoid arthritis: a faulty "anchor" that should be tethering a key molecule to the spot inside immune cells where it has to be in order to do its job. It seems this defect can be reversed with a not yet commercially available small-molecule drug.
Male mice are hardwired to recognize the sex of other mice, a new study shows. Females' circuitry guiding that decision differs from males.
Brain cells called oligodendrocytes supply insulation by wrapping neurons in multiple layers of fatty extensions, preserving signal strength and markedly speeding up transmission. But studying these cells in culture has been virtually impossible -- until now.
Stanford scientists have devised a way to predict the severity of dengue cases using a set of 20 genes and specific expression patterns.
Researchers have discovered a protein signal that promotes the growth of collateral arteries, which can provide backup if major arteries are blocked.
This In the Spotlight Q&A features Eddy Albarran, a graduate student in neurosciences, who is from Peru, loves languages, and is passionate about advocacy.
Long non-coding RNAs are important but poorly understood regulatory elements. Now Stanford scientists have uncovered they play a role in autism.
A new blood test measures the DNA fragments of lung transplant donors in the blood of recipients, in hopes of preventing organ rejection and saving lives.
Scientists have pinpointed the ensemble of neurons that specifically gives rise to the unpleasantness of pain in the brain.
