Stanford University Medical Center is the main teaching hospital affiliated with Stanford University. In addition, the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital, the Veterans Administration Hospital in Palo Alto and Santa Clara Valley Medical Center is managed by Stanford University. The Beckman Center for Molecular and Genetic Medicine and the Richard M. Lucas Center for Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy and the Clark Center for interdisciplinary research and bioengineering are associated with the Stanford University Medical Center. The first heart/lung transplant was performed at Stanford University Medical Center. It is ranked in the top 20 of University hospitals and is awarded a long list of research grants to its preeminent medical researchers and scientists.
Coral reefs on the precipice of collapse may get a conservation boost from the gene-editing tool known as CRISPR, according to researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine and their collaborators.
Stanford University bioengineers have figured out a way to make noscapine, a non-narcotic cough suppressant that occurs naturally in opium poppies, in brewer's yeast.
DNA twitches during transcription to bring distant regions in contact and enhance gene expression, according to Stanford researchers who devised a new way to label individual, non-repetitive DNA sequences.
New discoveries about the circadian-clock machinery in the precursors to fat cells may explain why shift workers are prone to metabolic diseases, such as diabetes, a Stanford study finds.
Researchers have identified two deep lineages of bacteria that have never been characterized before—and they found them in a dolphin's toothy grin.
Stanford researchers have developed a deep-learning algorithm that evaluates chest X-rays for signs of disease.
In 2008, Jay Lemery, MD, an emergency physician in Colorado, read a commentary about the effects of global climate change on human health. The author was Paul Auerbach, MD, professor of emergency medicine at Stanford and ...
Modern mothers, whether they be human or mouse, might be forgiven for envying marsupial mamas. Rather than enduring a long pregnancy and the birth of a relatively well-developed—and comparatively large—baby, kangaroos, ...
A Stanford team has launched a new challenge on the Eterna computer game. Players will design a CRISPR-controlling molecule, and with it open the possibility of new research and therapies.
More evidence that our intestinal microbes are profoundly influenced by the foods we eat—or don't: The gut ecosystems of members of a small group of hunter-gatherers inhabiting Tanzania's Rift Valley show a strong cyclicality ...
