A protein on a cell structure called the primary cilia links diabetes and obesity. The discovery may lead to new diabetes treatments.
Tiny fish evolve rapidly and predictably by diving into a 'genetic toolbox' shared with other organisms including Darwin's finches.
A new way to deliver mRNA as a COVID-19 vaccine may avoid side effects and increase customization to prevent infection.
Anthony Oro is devoted to understanding the origin of basal cell carcinomas. Now he's found how some become resistant to a common treatment.
Induced pluripotent stem cells share proteins with some cancers. The cells can be used as a vaccine to prevent pancreatic cancers in mice.
Medical residents at Stanford worked together to care for Covid patients during the pandemic without sacrificing their education.
'Resting' exhausted cancer-fighting immune cells enhances their tumor-killing activity, which may help people with blood and solid cancers.
People who have their first colonoscopy between the age of 45 and 49 halve their risk of subsequent colorectal cancers, a Stanford Medicine study has found.
Ovarian cancer genetic testing is underused and large gene panels lead to uncertain results, particularly for non-white patients, a Stanford Medicine study finds.
A Stanford-developed anti-cancer therapy currently in clinical trials may also reduce vascular inflammation in heart disease.
Stanford scientists have found two genes associated with concussion. Screening football players and military might identify those at higher risk.
Stanford Medicine’s early development of testing for COVID-19 infection and antibodies helped guide government responses and stem local spread of the virus.
How Stanford Medicine ramped up in the spring of 2020 to cope with a coming global pandemic and learned how to brace for the next wave of COVID-19 patients.
Abdominal adhesions frequently occur after abdominal surgery. Stanford researchers prevented their formation in mice by blocking a molecular pathway.
A Stanford-led study finds that remnants of an ancient viral infection may be the reason humans and other primates evolved to have larger hearts and bodies.
Stanford scientists have devised a way to use positron emission tomography to watch the movement of a single cell injected into a lab mouse in real time.
