Since Stanford first opened its doors to students and faculty, a core tenet of the university has been for its citizens to improve the world around them. Stanford researchers have achieved this goal repeatedly over the years, through the development of devices that made radar and MRI scans possible, or medical breakthroughs like the first heart-lung transplant, or through invisible lines of computer code that make everyday technologies possible, such as digital music and email. That dedication continues today, as Stanford faculty across all disciplines pursue world-changing research.
