Emerging Stories

  • The awards are the third in the agency’s “tools and technology” grants, which encourage researchers to develop new methods and techniques to overcome stumbling blocks in the field.

  • The funding will establish the Stanford Human Systems Immunology Center, and will accelerate efforts to develop vaccines for the world's most deadly infectious diseases.

  • This February during Heart Month, and especially during Congenital Heart Disease Awareness Week (February 7-14), the Adult Congenital Heart Association wants to educate the public about CHD—specifically that congenital heart defects are the number one birth defect and that they require lifelong care.

CVI T32 Training Grant on "Mechanism and Innovation in Vascular Disease" renewed till June 2020. Congratulations to Drs. Ronald Dalman and Phil Tsao.


For this year’s Retreat, we asked our selected members to dig deep into the past and project the future of their specialties. Whether it’s clinical science, imaging, stem cells, big data, women’s health or biomaterials and devices, the goal is to propel research that ensures a future in which we minimize damaging one of nature’s most delicate organs.


In his work, Gambhir, who has particular interest in cancer biology and gene therapy, combines advances in molecular and cell biology with those in biomedical imaging.
