On Oct. 17, Stanford Online will release a new massive open online course (MOOC) entitled “The Threat of Nuclear Terrorism” to educate the public on the dangers of nuclear weapons.
Researchers at Stanford have made mice glow using a new gene therapy technique, showing that the process can work on living animals. It has a variety of applications to many central problems in biology and medicine, including immunology and cancer research.
Researchers at the Welander Lab discovered bacteria that produce a fatty molecule thought only to exist in flowering plants.
Stanford researchers are collaborating to create nanoparticles that emit light in response to a force stimulus. They hope to use these nanoparticles as sensors to study biological processes. Currently, they are testing these sensors in the digestive systems of 1 millimeter long worms called nematodes.
This system proposed by physicists, if proven effective, would not only reduce the cost of detecting neutrinos but also deepen our understanding of elementary particle physics.
Researchers at Stanford’s Tang Lab recently released a paper investigating the spontaneous emergence of order in water oil droplets squeezed through a funnel.
This past summer, archaeologists from the Çatalhöyük Research Project unearthed two marble figurines, considered one of the most significant finds in the project’s 23-year history.
Physicists develop microscope technique for clearer images and less damage.
