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.

Researchers from Stanford University have used a geophysical imaging technique to map where seawater has infiltrated freshwater aquifers along the Monterey Bay coastline.
Monitoring a newly discovered group of genes in coral could predict when they are under stress and might bleach. The approach could improve conservation strategies for at-risk coral reefs.
The case studies are meant to be a resource for department chairs and deans who are contemplating large-scale efforts of their own.
Research from Stanford University and Cornell University offers evidence that situational factors such as mood can influence people to act like trolls.

On a recent afternoon, a small group of students gathered around a large table in one of the rooms at the Stanford Archaeology Center.

Two side effects of opioids — growing tolerance to the drugs and increased sensitivity to pain — may be specifically caused by the drugs’ effect on peripheral pain neurons in the body, not those in the spinal cord or brain, according to a new study.
Researchers have created a new type of solar cell that replaces silicon with a crystal called perovskite. This design converts sunlight to electricity at efficiencies similar to current technology but at much lower cost.
The results, published in Nature, could pave the way to the cleaner production of methanol, an important industrial feedstock and potential green fuel.
Researchers have engineered a low-cost plastic material that could become the basis for clothing that cools the wearer, reducing the need for energy-consuming air conditioning.
Researchers have identified a novel compound that appears to exhibit painkilling power comparable to morphine but lacks that drug’s most lethal property: respiratory suppression, which results in some 30,000 drug overdose deaths annually in the United States.
