Stanford Medicine researchers and others study a deadly virus -- the Nipah virus -- in a high-clearance safety laboratory.
Why C. diff wants to make you sick
Stanford research findings could lead to new ways to block the bacteria Clostridium difficile -- or C. diff -- from multiplying in our guts.
Bat-borne Nipah virus could help explain COVID-19
Understanding similarities between the Nipah virus and COVID-19 could provide clues for avoiding future novel virus outbreaks.
Clues about what makes SARS-CoV-2 tick (and how to stop it)
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.
How chloroquine, coronavirus duke it out inside a dish
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.
One in five people with COVID-19 are also co-infected with other viruses or bacteria
Co-infection with SARS-CoV-2 and other respiratory pathogens is more common than previously expected, according to a Stanford study.
What’s a virus, anyway? Part 2: How coronaviruses infect us — and how viruses created us
A look at how viruses — including coronavirus — enter cells, use their molecular machinery to copy themselves and escape. And how to stop them.
What’s a virus, anyway? Part 1: The bare-bones basics
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.
Stanford ramps up coronavirus testing to help other hospitals
The Stanford Clinical Virology Laboratory is ramping up capacity for its coronavirus diagnostic test, which can deliver results in 24 hours.
Scientists close in on a cure for the common cold
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.
Partners-in-crime: Bacteria sics its pet virus on our immune cells to make us sick
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.
Chemists shed light on Zika’s path to infection
New research examines how Zika viruses enter cells and shows that their behavior is different than that of some related viruses.
Inherited Neanderthal genes protect us against viruses, study shows
Stanford scientists have found that viral infections shaped human genome evolution after interbreeding with Neanderthals 50,000 years ago.
