Stanford’s plans for removal of the 119-year-old Lagunita Diversion Dam, located in the San Francisquito Creek near Alpine Road, were approved by Santa Clara County on March 1. Plans for removal have been underway since a district judge ordered Stanford to remove the dam on Jan. 16, 2015, following concerns regarding fish passage and sediment…
Civil and environmental engineering professor Mark Z. Jacobson has voluntarily withdrawn a $10 million libel lawsuit against an academic critic and the National Academy of Sciences’ (NAS) official journal for publishing a report disputing his research on renewable energy sources in the United States. Jacobson, who also directs Stanford’s atmosphere and energy program, initially sued the journal for libel in Nov. 2017.
Although millennials generally meet certain life benchmarks later than earlier generations did, they don’t necessarily do so by choice, new research from the Stanford Center on Longevity suggests.
It’s not the usual Valentine’s day treat, but today’s audience at the International Solid State Circuits Conference will hear two Stanford researchers present a breakthrough finding that paints a rosy picture of the future of the Internet of Things, a catch-all phrase referring to any network of smart devices. Their work centers around using ultrasonic signals to wake up electronic devices.
Research from Stanford’s Qi Lab and published in Nature Communications is honing in on a method of using gene-editing to further the fight against leukemia and potentially other cancers.
Stanford researchers pioneering a new model of foster care have discovered that placing vulnerable children with foster families at an earlier age enhances resilience, physical competence and emotional and academic intelligence.
