Stanford scientists have found 16 new genetic variants linked to a greater risk for autism, a finding that could help identify biomarkers for the disorder.
The bacteria in our gut make tiny, previously unidentified proteins that could shed light on human health and advance drug development.
Stanford researchers discover a gel that, when applied to animal hearts, vastly reduces the formation of adhesions, scar tissue that cause complications.
A new Stanford study in children with autism showed the value of teaching parents how to use everyday interactions to motivate their children to speak.
Stanford postdoc Arnold Mathijssen wanted to know how bacteria swim upstream. Someday, his findings could shape how we design devices and deliver drugs.
Scientists at Stanford have identified a gene key to the formation of a type of toxic protein in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a neurodegenerative disease.

Frustrated by the poor options for their patients, two neurosurgery residents left to study basic science at Stanford, developing a drug for brain tumors.
The real question a new study suggests, isn't why some people occasionally experience hallucinations: It's why all of us aren't hallucinating all the time.
A Stanford neurobiologist continues with his challenge of explaining neuroscience in a series of brief videos on Instagram — for an entire year.
