Stanford scientists transformed tonsils into immunology labs in a dish, aiding research to develop vaccines for COVID-19, the flu and other diseases.
Stanford epidemiologist Yvonne Maldonado has brought her deep knowledge of viral outbreaks to several key roles in the fight against COVID-19.
Stanford infectious disease expert Yvonne Maldonado, MD, describes principles for developing safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines for everyone.
Two recent Stanford-led studies show the value of tweaking vaccines to enlist the entire immune system — not just part of it — in preventing HIV infection.
A Stanford microbiologist describes the invigorating, yet sobering race to develop an effective vaccine against COVID-19.
Mammalian cells use a label to distinguish self from non-self circular RNA molecules. Foreign molecules can trigger anti-cancer immune responses.
The best time to get a flu shot is when you haven't had antibiotics recently, a new study has found, because healthy gut bacteria protect immunity.
In this In the Spotlight, Rebecca Saenz, a recent allergy and immunology fellow, describes her evolution as a physician/scientist and entrepreneur.
Osteoarthritis has traditionally been thought to be an inevitable result of wear and tear. But it's now clear the immune system is playing a leading role.
Stanford scientists and collaborators have harnessed CRISPR to replace the mutated gene underpinning the devastating immune disease, SCID-X1.
P. aeruginosa, a type of bacteria, is increasingly drug-resistant, and there's no vaccine against it. But it has a recently discovered Achilles heel.
Scientists have modified immune cells, imbuing them with the ability to not only detect, but reveal, the presence of a tumor.
Cracking the crystal structure of a protein complex centered around a major immune signaling protein, interferon-gamma, may speed its medical use.
A team of researchers have found a new way to remove blood-producing stem cells, introducing the possibility of safer, and non-matched, transplants.
Sharon Chinthrajah weighs in on a new peanut allergy immunotherapy, speaking to its potential and its role in the future of food allergies therapy.
With age comes wisdom: mostly true. But a new study helps explain why one part of us - our immune system - gets decidedly dumber with age.
