Researchers at Stanford have developed a nanoparticle-based platform to enhance activation of self-specific CD8+ T cells in the tumor microenvironment to fight cancer while minimizing toxic side effects.
Stanford researchers have developed an in silico method, JEEPERS, that corrects DNA methylation errors at jagged-ends, improving cfDNA methylation profiling for early cancer detection and tissue-of-origin classification.
The blood-brain barrier (BBB) lumen is coated by a carbohydrate-rich meshwork known as the brain endothelial glycocalyx layer. Stanford researchers have shown that the brain endothelial glycocalyx is highly dysregulated during aging and neurodegenerative disease.
Creating human brain progenitors and neurons from human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) offers vast possibilities to study, model and treat neurological and neurodegenerative diseases, which are among the most intractable diseases that afflict our society.
Stanford scientists, physicians, and engineers have developed a novel approach for continuous and on-demand monitoring of intracranial pressure (ICP) in both inpatient and outpatient settings using a small microfluidic sensor.
Stanford researchers within the Dionne Lab have developed a method to use copper titanium dioxide core-shell nanoparticles for the light driven production of green fuels or removal of contaminants in water.
Stanford researchers have developed an additive manufacturing system for magnetic materials which can create complex 3D shapes with challenging materials using a laser to sinter core-shell nanoparticles that are dispersed in a solvent (particle ink).
