A protein on a cell structure called the primary cilia links diabetes and obesity. The discovery may lead to new diabetes treatments.
Famous virus hunter Peter Piot, MD, PhD, recounts his firsthand battle with COVID-19, and the second wave of chronic symptoms that left him ill for months.
Stanford Medicine researchers are investigating SARS-CoV-2 to address the COVID-19 pandemic and ultimately help restore normalcy to society.
There's a voracious appetite for information on how SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic, works. Here it is, in a single package.
A Stanford physician co-authored a list of likely biological factors underlying the reduced development of COVID-19 for children compared to adults.
Abdominal adhesions frequently occur after abdominal surgery. Stanford researchers prevented their formation in mice by blocking a molecular pathway.
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.
How exactly does the antiviral drug remdesivir counter SARS-CoV-2 – the coronavirus strain responsible for COVID-19? And how well?
Stanford scientists have built a detailed picture of the biological clock of pregnancy, tracking thousands of metabolic markers throughout gestation.
A Stanford microbiologist describes the invigorating, yet sobering race to develop an effective vaccine against COVID-19.
Using microbubbles and ultrasound, researchers have created a cancer treatment that kills tumor cells and recruits immune cells to the tumor.
The experts on Stanford Medicine's molecular tumor board brainstorm new ways to attack individual patients' tumors at the genetic level.
Even if chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine don't end up being the best treatment for COVID-19, observing how they work in a dish can teach scientists a lot.
