Researchers have developed a new system called Decagon that could help doctors make better decisions about which drugs to prescribe and help researchers find better combinations of drugs to treat complex diseases.
The epidemic of physician burnout may be the source of even more medical errors than unsafe medical workplace conditions, a new study led by Stanford researchers has found.
A new blood test for pregnant women detects with 75-80 percent accuracy whether their pregnancies will end in premature birth. The technique can also be used to estimate a fetus’s gestational age — or the mother’s due date — as reliably as and less expensively than ultrasound.
A Stanford study finds that pumping an aquifer to the last drop can also unlock dangerous arsenic from buried clays.
A Stanford-led study questions previous findings about the value of foreshocks as warning signs that a big earthquake is coming, instead showing them to be indistinguishable from ordinary earthquakes.
More than 11 million Americans may have incorrect prescriptions for aspirin, statins and blood pressure medications, according to a study led by researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine.

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.
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.
