Scientists studying cell death are working to understand how the body protects itself from disease and use that information to form better treatments.
Scientists use a tweaked version of CRISPR gene editing to turn skin cells into neurons, and simultaneously identify neuron-specific genes.
Stanford scientists have discovered the signaling pathway responsible for making sure all DNA is replicated before cell division can occur.
Your cells can die in several ways, and that's not necessarily a bad thing. This piece explains four types of cell death.
A recent lecture by clinician-researcher Daniel Bernstein highlighted an imaging technique for assessing the diverse ways mitochondria behave within heart cells.
New technology developed at Stanford Medicine automatically identifies cell types and provides view of how cells interact with their environment.
Ron Dror and colleagues used computer simulations and lab experiments to better understand G-protein-coupled receptors, which are critical to drug development. In the future, they hope to use this knowledge to design drugs with fewer side effects.
