The Science of Being Fearless: Meet Siebel Scholar Deena Rennerfeldt

Siebel Scholar Deena Rennerfeldt (’18) didn’t exactly set out to analyze complex, multidimensional datasets to find new insights in biological behaviors. Rather, growing up in the Rocky Mountains and moving every few years kept her busy with more artistic pursuits. She fell in love with music at a very early age and grew up dreaming of studying music. She was also determined to be the first one in her family to go to college.   Separated by the Charles River Basin, Berk


Siebel Stem Cell Institute Supported Study Makes Key Step in Regenerative Medicine

Stanford researchers who receive funding from the Siebel Stem Cell Institute have made a breakthrough discovery. The team has successfully gotten stem cells to produce bone, heart muscle, and cartilage within a matter of days. The Stanford University School of Medicine team has mapped out the sets of biological and chemical signals necessary to quickly and efficiently direct human embryonic stem cells to become pure populations of any of 12 cell types.
