Watching “Christopher Robin” about a decade later brings back the same smiles and cheer, along with a bit of nostalgia. Despite some exaggerated moments, the movie has charm, especially for those familiar with the “Winnie…
As the 2019 Gordon Research Conference — "Wnt Signaling Networks in Development, Disease and Regeneration” — approaches, Stanford developmental biology professor Roeland Nusse is continuing more than 30 years of work with the protein known as Wnt. He leads the Nusse Lab at Stanford in researching the effects and mechanisms of Wnt signaling, which has profound consequences on stem cell fate, tissue regeneration and cancer.
With 703 undergraduates as of fall 2017, the computer science department has the greatest number of students of any department at Stanford. With increasing size, however, comes new challenges, such as providing support in introductory and upper-level classes and fostering relationships with professors.
An initiative spearheaded by a team of SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory (SLAC) researchers seeks to produce a highly sensitive detector of dark matter particles.
A five-percent drop in measles vaccine coverage would triple the number of infections in children, according to Stanford researchers.
Two Stanford labs received a total of $1.59 million from the Department of Energy for continued research in the development of solar cells. The two labs receiving grants are the Dauskardt lab and the McGehee lab.
InVivo Therapeutics Holdings Corporation named Stanford Hospital as one of 34 testing sites for its neuro-spinal scaffold study. The study’s implementation of a biodegradable implant will support remaining spinal tissue and promote healing in patients with spinal cord trauma.
Iron in Greenland’s glacial runoff may catalyze summertime algae blooms, increasing food supply for marine life, according to Stanford scientists. Although the blooms benefit ocean dwellers, its vastness indicates increasing global warming rates.
A new cell cutting device developed by Stanford scientists in the Tang Lab speeds up the cell division process and allows for research in cell repair. Implications of the device could lead to reducing the effects of cancer and degenerative diseases.
