Stanford Medicine comprises the Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford Health Care and Stanford Children’s Health.

A leader in the biomedical revolution, Stanford Medicine is ushering in the era of Precision Health. This high-tech, high-touch approach to patient care seeks to not only treat disease but to predict, prevent and cure it—precisely. Stanford Medicine’s many transformative advances across research, education and patient care build upon the organization’s legacy of innovation. Stanford’s contributions in biomedical discovery include the first synthesis of biologically active DNA in a test tube, the discovery of immune response genes, the expansion of optogenetics and the development of one of the first in-house COVID-19 diagnostic tests. Renowned for its patient care, Stanford Medicine is the site of the first successful human heart transplant in the country and the first combined heart-lung transplant in the world.
