Stanford University

Stanford University, located between San Francisco and San Jose in the heart of California's Silicon Valley, is one of the world's leading teaching and research universities. Since its opening in 1891, Stanford has been dedicated to finding solutions to big challenges and to preparing students for leadership in a complex world.

According to a new study by Stanford researchers, adolescents who have health-oriented food rules at home are more likely to make healthy eating decisions on their own.
By combining computer simulations with laboratory experiments, an international research team revealed something new about a molecular pathway that enables roughly half of all medications to achieve their desired effects – but is also responsible for many side effects.
Stanford researchers set out to test a seminal theory of Parkinson’s disease and several related conditions. What they found is more complex than anyone had imagined.
Stanford scientists have developed a manganese-hydrogen battery that could fill a missing piece in the nation’s energy puzzle by storing wind and solar energy for when it is needed, lessening the need to burn carbon-emitting fossil fuels.
Researchers have developed a device that combines image-processing goggles and tiny silicon chips implanted in the retina to restore vision.
Stanford scientists have found a way to modify pairs of cancer-related genes in the lungs of mice and then precisely track individual cells of the resulting tumor – a combined technique that could dramatically speed up cancer research and drug development.
Stanford neurologists have been working for several years with a specialist in computer music to develop a "brain stethoscope" that translates the brain’s electrical activity into sounds.
A technique for growing sticky films of bacteria into elaborate microscopic images could reveal how potentially dangerous biofilms grow and transmit antibiotic resistance, and could lead to novel biomaterials or synthetic microbial communities, researchers say.
Countries that simply possess deadly, armed drones could change an adversary’s behavior without even striking them, according to a Stanford political scientist.
Researchers at Stanford University are imagining for a system that can produce images of objects hidden from view.
