The Canary Center at the Stanford School of Medicine

In 2024, the Canary Center at the Stanford School of Medicine’s vision has been elevated to include precision treatment as well as early detection. The focus on the early detection of cancer is a foundational strength, and we are expanding our vision to include other disease foci including neurology and cardiology. Our mission is to meet clinical needs with both in vivo and in vitro diagnostics and delivery technologies developed by the deep engineering expertise that we have at Stanford University. Together, we can develop innovative and cost-effective new approaches for early detection and coupled precision treatments that are enabled by the fusion of engineering and medicine, empowering people to steer their own choices to lead healthy lives.

To change the course of your health, by spotting the potential for disease earlier, preventing it from initiating and advancing, treating it more effectively, with less cost and less intrusion into your life.
