Using first-person narratives, Stanford undergraduates create an interactive tool that shows how forces of global change are manifested locally throughout California.
Stanford remembers the earthquake that rocked the campus and spurred wealth of research aimed at reducing quakes' destruction.
This year's Roundtable at Stanford focuses on climate change, its impacts, dangers and possible solutions. On Friday, Oct. 24, 60 Minutes correspondent Lesley Stahl will lead the conversation.
Twenty-five years after Loma Prieta, a Stanford team develops inexpensive design modifications that could be incorporated into new homes to reduce quake damage.
Using ultrasound to deliver power wirelessly, Stanford researchers are working on next-generation medical devices that would be planted deep inside the body.
Decoy drug developed by Stanford Bio-X scientists allows brains of adult mice to form new connections
If the finding works in people, it has the potential to help adults recover from stroke and forms of blindness or to prevent the loss of connections in Alzheimer's disease.
Stanford's Yi Cui and colleagues have created a lithium-ion battery that alerts users of potential overheating and fire.
W.E. Moerner shares the award for his contribution to the ability to observe molecules at the smallest scales.
Stanford scientists and an international research group receive funding to advance solar cells, batteries, renewable fuels and bioenergy.
Miniature wireless device being developed by Stanford Bio-X team creates better way of studying chronic pain
Ada Poon leads team of Stanford Bio-X scientists creating a small wireless device that will improve studies of chronic pain. The scientists hope to use what they learn to develop better therapies for the condition.
Solar, wind and other alternative sources are easier on the environment but less predictable than coal, gas or oil-fired plants, demanding a more sophisticated distribution and delivery system.
Public policies for addiction, smarter prosthetics and stroke among the Big Ideas tackled by Stanford neuroscientists
Improving public policies for treating drug addiction, smarter prosthetics and stroke research are among the new priorities for the interdisciplinary Stanford Neurosciences Institute.
Physicist Martin Perl was part of SLAC and Stanford communities for half a century. "He was so excited to come to the lab," his son said.
The extreme atmospheric conditions associated with California's crippling drought are far more likely to occur under today's global warming conditions than in the climate that existed years ago.
Team uses novel combination of computer simulations and statistical techniques to show that a persistent region of high atmospheric pressure was much more likely to form in the presence of modern greenhouse gas concentrations.
