Stanford-led research finds that the blood-brain barrier may be much more permeable -- albeit selectively so -- than previously thought.
Stanford researchers and colleagues have invented a genetic safety mechanism that can deactivate transplanted cells if they change in a problematic way.
Stanford researchers have found a good drug target for treating Diamond-Blackfan anemia, a genetic disease that impairs red blood cell formation.
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.
