Researchers in medicine, engineering and business are developing a way of diagnosing deadly bacterial blood infections that’s more efficient than current techniques. They aim to speed up treatment while avoiding antibiotic resistance.
Artificial intelligence is now part of our daily lives, whether in voice recognition systems or route finding apps. But scientists are increasingly drawing on AI to understand society, design new materials and even improve our health.
Artificial intelligence drew much inspiration from the human brain but went off in its own direction. Now, AI has come full circle and is helping neuroscientists better understand how our own brains work.
Concussion is a major public health problem, but not much is known about the impacts that cause concussion or how to prevent them. Bioengineer David Camarillo and colleagues suggest that the problem is more complicated than previously thought.
As Stanford interdisciplinary scientists find new ways to push, pull and sometimes jiggle cells and molecules, they’re also discovering microscopic answers to the biggest questions in biology and health.
