Speaking the brain’s language to treat disease

Brain-machine interfaces now treat neurological disease and change the way people with paralysis interact with the world. Improving those devices depends on getting better at translating the language of the brain.

Stanford researchers advance the future of energy

Research into renewable energy, batteries, carbon capture and storage, the electric grid and natural gas have sprung up around campus, helping to move the world to a more sustainable future.

Future of energy: Efficiency

With less demand from efficient buildings, transportation and appliances, the energy we make can go further.

Future of energy: Renewables

Advances in materials and technology are improving the cost and efficiency of renewable sources of energy.

Engineering students help geneticists study coral bleaching

Tiny devices could help scientists study coral bleaching, parasites, molecular biology and more, but few scientists know how to use them. A new course aimed to change that by pairing students with labs looking for help.

Annotation tool helps students beyond Stanford

Lacuna, a free online annotation platform developed at Stanford, promotes collaborative learning and interdisciplinary conversations. The platform is being used at higher education institutions around the world.
