A Stanford-led team shows how these ancient creatures' undulating motions cause water to pull them along, an insight that could spur new designs for underwater craft
Stanford University announced Jan. 29 that it has received a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to accelerate efforts in vaccine development. The $50 million grant over 10 years will build on existing technology developed at Stanford and housed in the Human Immune Monitoring Core, and will establish the Stanford Human Systems Immunology Center. The center aims to better understand how the immune system can be harnessed to develop vaccines for the world's most deadly infectious diseases.
‘Dechirper’ will give scientists more control over ‘color spectrum’ of LCLS X-ray pulses.
The U.S. Department of Energy has issued a Preliminary Notice of Violation (PNOV) to Stanford University (Stanford) for four violations of the Department's worker safety and health regulations. Worker safety is a priority for the Department, and its enforcement program supports this priority by holding contractors accountable for meeting regulatory requirements and maintaining a safe and healthy workplace.
A team of Stanford scientists has developed an entirely non-invasive technique that provides a view of blood flow in the brain. The tool could provide powerful insights into strokes and possibly Alzheimer's disease.
Pure lithium anode closer to reality with development of protective layer of interconnected carbon domes
Following a thorough damage assessment, the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory had restored power to the linear accelerator. All safety systems and fire suppression systems have been restored. SLAC will start up accelerator operation and resume operations at both LCLS and FACET, according to the lab's website. The fire had shut down the lab as of late Thursday, June 28, but there were no injuries and no danger to the community, the university said in a statement.
Researchers use new techniques to document how cells can conceal growth and then suddenly swell up. The study is a paradigm shift in understanding "osmotic shock" and may lead to new strategies for fighting bacterial diseases.
Protecting wildlife while feeding a world population predicted to reach 9 billion by 2050 will require a holistic approach to conservation that considers human-altered landscapes such as farmland, according to Stanford researchers.
The detection of gravitational waves by the BICEP2 experiment at the South Pole supports the cosmic inflation theory of how the universe came to be. The discovery, made in part by Stanford University Assistant Professor Chao-Lin Kuo, supports the theoretical work of Stanford's Andrei Linde.
