Frontiers in Medicine
Our premier annual event that showcases pioneering breakthroughs in the most promising fields in biosciences and medicine presented by world-class Stanford faculty. By invitation only.
What is the New Old? Dramatic advances in biomedicine are ushering in a new era where our lives are not just longer, they’re livelier. Researchers at Stanford are exploring how science and technology are helping us stay healthy, sharp, and connected well into old age—and how our longer, livelier lifespans will shape society.
Everything you need to heal is already inside you. Your stem cells, immune system, and microbiome have the potential to cure all sorts of diseases, from cancer to stroke to diabetes and beyond.
Scientists at Stanford are learning how to unleash this power to heal patients for a lifetime with fewer side effects. It’s the ultimate expression of precision health and the next frontier in medicine.
From unraveling the basic mechanisms of life to transform human health to using super-sensitive new tools to gather data at the molecular level, the next generation of medicine at Stanford will leverage the latest science and technology to deliver predictive, preventive, and precise care to every patient.
We are all living at the center of a biomedical revolution and Stanford is leading the way. We're harnessing the world's data to improve human health, saving the next generation of outstanding American science, and lighting up tumors to save lives.
