In this electron micrograph, prostate tumor cells dying from a type of programmed cell death called apoptosis are shown (purple) alongside healthy cancer cells (yellow). Scientists are learning more about how apoptosis spreads through cells.

Standford scientists discovered the speed of cells death

Two Stanford University system's biologists, Xianrui Cheng and James Ferrell, have discovered the speed at which cells die. The study could resolve a debate...

Fishing bans protect fish and don’t harm fishing communities

A new study led by Stanford scientists suggests that fishing bans don't hurt fishing communities. Such bans hold the potential to aid fishes to survive....
Making plans is essential for humans to gain autonomy over their lives

Making plans is essential for humans to gain autonomy over their lives

Why do people get upset when something about their planning goes awry? When a person forget about his/her already scheduled meeting or multitasking, something goes...
Gillnet fishing boats ply the California coast. A dynamic management tool can be up to 10 times more efficient for protecting species than previous management styles. (Image credit: Craig Heberer)

New tool to improve fishing efficiency and sustainability

Stanford scientists have recently developed a new tool called EcoCast that can help fishers locate the most productive fishing spots. The tool will also help...
Sterol - Wikipedia

Sterol-producing bacteria that may change the way geologists interpret the rock record

Sterols linger in soils and rocks for billions of years and have filled in as an indication to geologists that the plants, creatures, and...
According to a new study by Stanford researchers, teens who have health-oriented food rules at home are more likely to make healthy eating decisions on their own. (Image credit: Getty Images)

Stanford study shows that teens heed food rules that prioritize health

Eating healthy is an important part of a healthy lifestyle and is something that should be taught at a young age. A new study by...
Associate Professor Benjamin Lev and his research team were inspired by the toy known as Newton’s cradle in their investigation of quantum systems. (Image credit: L.A. Cicero)

Scientists investigate behavior in quantum systems with a toy-inspired technique

Newton’s cradle is more than a popular desktop plaything. It has taught a generation of students about conservation of momentum and energy. Now, Stanford scientists...
Postdoctoral scholar Wei Chen holds a prototype of what could one day be a ginormous battery designed to store solar and wind energy thanks to a water-based chemical reaction developed in the lab of Stanford materials scientist Yi Cui. (Image credit: Jinwei Xu)

New water-based battery to store solar and wind energy

Stanford specialists have built up a water-based battery that could give a modest method to store wind or sun oriented energy produced when the...
Gold nanoparticles are attached to threads of gold nanowires. Both structures were formed using a novel redox reaction involving water microdroplets. (Image credit: Courtesy of Jae Kyoo Lee)

Scientists create gold nanoparticles in water

Gold is known as a noble metal since it is moderately unreactive. Not at all like base metals, for example, nickel and copper, gold...
