I don't relish being a party pooper, but I have some bad news: Any way you sip it, alcohol is a low-grade poison. (We all …
After starting his career as a veterinarian, scientist John Gorzynski turned to research, investigating great ape genetics and cardiology.
Researchers are using a new artificial intelligence-based program to help identify genes that underly diseases.
Researchers at Stanford Medicine have discovered a possible molecule connection between Down syndrome and Alzheimer's disease.
From the genetics of COVID-19, to cancer, to tonsils, this story is a wrap up of Scope's most read stories of 2021.
Tiny fish evolve rapidly and predictably by diving into a 'genetic toolbox' shared with other organisms including Darwin's finches.
Stanford Medicine researchers and others discovered 13 genetic signatures that are closely linked to an increased risk for severe COVID-19.
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.
A team led by Howard Chang has contributed key technology to enable new experimental cancer therapy that uses CRISPR to edit immune cells.
Researchers zeroed in on the genes driving ground squirrel hibernation — and their insights could be helpful for understanding human health.
In his quest to cure his daughter’s ultra-rare disease, Matt Wilsey might also be changing the way drugs are made, Stanford Business magazine reports.
Scientists have used CRISPR-Cas9 screens to reveal more about how the bacteria behind Legionnaire's disease infects humans.
Mammalian cells use a label to distinguish self from non-self circular RNA molecules. Foreign molecules can trigger anti-cancer immune responses.
