    Member, Stanford Cancer Institute
    Research Interest

    The Jardetzky laboratory is studying the structures and mechanisms of macromolecular complexes important in viral pathogenesis, allergic hypersensitivities and the regulation of cellular growth and differentiation, with an interest in uncovering novel conceptual approaches to intervening in disease processes. Ongoing research projects include studies of paramyxovirus and herpesvirus entry mechanisms, IgE-receptor structure and function and TGF-beta ligand signaling pathways.

  • Assistant Professor of Chemical and Systems Biology and of Developmental Biology
    Member, Bio-X
    Member, Stanford Cancer Institute
    Research Interest

    My laboratory studies conformational switches in evolution, disease, and development. We focus on how molecular chaperones, proteins that help other biomolecules to fold, affect the phenotypic output of genetic variation. To do so we combine classical biochemistry and genetics with systems-level approaches. Ultimately we seek to understand how homeostatic mechanisms influence the acquisition of biological novelty and identify means of manipulating them for therapeutic and biosynthetic benefit.

  • John and Marva Warnock Professor
    Member, Bio-X
    Member, Stanford Cancer Institute
    Clinical Focus
    • Breast Cancer
    • General Surgery
    Research Interest

    Dr. Jeffrey was team leader of the multidisciplinary team from the School of Medicine, School of Engineering, and Genome Technology Center that invented the MagSweeper automated technology to isolate live circulating tumor cells (CTCs) from cancer patient blood for single cell analysis. Her lab characterizes CTCs in different cancers, investigating CTC profiles and mutations as potential companion diagnostics to define individual patient response to newer biologically-based cancer therapies.

  • Associate Professor of Pediatrics (Hematology/Oncology) at the Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital
    Member, Stanford Cancer Institute
    Clinical Focus
    • Hematology, Pediatric
    • Pediatric Hematology-Oncology
    Research Interest

    Research interests include pediatric hematologic disorders, such as bone marrow failure disorders, sickle cell disease, hemophilia, and thalassemia. Current clinical research includes transfusion related iron overload.

  • Assistant Professor of Pathology at the Palo Alto Veteran's Health Care System and at Stanford University Medical Center
    Member, Stanford Cancer Institute
    Clinical Focus
    • Pathology
    • Cytopathology
    • Anatomic Pathology
    Research Interest

    I am a clinical translational investigator with a primary interest in breast cancer biology, and the use of investigational and clinical ancillary techniques such as gene and tissue microarray analysis and immunohistochemistry in the diagnosis and prognosis of this disease. As a practicing cytopathologist, I also have an interest in improving the fine needle aspiration biopsy diagnosis of breast lesions, again using immunohistochemistry and gene expression analysis as adjuncts to cytomorphology.

  • Assistant Professor of Medicine (Oncology)
    Member, Stanford Cancer Institute
    Clinical Focus
    • GI Oncology
    • Medical Oncology
    • Oncology (Cancer)
    Research Interest

    Cancer genomics and genetics, translational applications of next generation sequencing technologies, development of molecular signatures as prognostic and predictive biomarkers in oncology, primary genomic and proteomic technology development

  • Associate Professor of Medicine (Blood and Marrow Transplantation) at the Stanford University Medical Center
    Member, Stanford Cancer Institute
    Clinical Focus
    • Blood and Marrow Transplant
    • Hematology
    • Blood and Marrow Transplantation
    Research Interest

    Clinical research in allogeneic and autologous hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT), more specifically, allogeneic transplantation and graft versus host disease. Exploring methods of improving prevention and treatment of GVHD as well as the long term follow-up and/or quality of life of affected patients.
