Stanford research findings could lead to new ways to block the bacteria Clostridium difficile -- or C. diff -- from multiplying in our guts.
Understanding similarities between the Nipah virus and COVID-19 could provide clues for avoiding future novel virus outbreaks.
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.
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.
Co-infection with SARS-CoV-2 and other respiratory pathogens is more common than previously expected, according to a Stanford study.
A look at how viruses — including coronavirus — enter cells, use their molecular machinery to copy themselves and escape. And how to stop them.
Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, viruses are getting a lot of attention; here's an inside look into the most abundant life form on Earth.
The Stanford Clinical Virology Laboratory is ramping up capacity for its coronavirus diagnostic test, which can deliver results in 24 hours.
Scientists found a sneaky way to stop cold viruses from replicating in mammalian cells by disabling a protein not in the virus but in the cells they infect.
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.
New research examines how Zika viruses enter cells and shows that their behavior is different than that of some related viruses.
Stanford scientists have found that viral infections shaped human genome evolution after interbreeding with Neanderthals 50,000 years ago.
