    Clinical Focus
    • Hematology
    Research Interest

    Ravindra Majeti focuses on the molecular characterization and therapeutic targeting of leukemia stem cells in human hematologic disorders, particularly acute myeloid leukemia (AML LSC). A major focus is the identification of cell surface molecules preferentially expressed on LSC and the development of therapeutic monoclonal antibodies targeting these proteins. Toward this goal, together with Irv Weissman, the lab is actively developing an anti-CD47 antibody for clinical trials in human AML.

  • Assistant Professor (Research) of Radiology (General Radiology)
    Member, Stanford Cancer Institute
    Research Interest

    Our research centers on developing and applying proteomics and systems biology approaches to quantitatively describe organisms' physiologic states towards the goal of enabling personalized, predictive medicine. As part of this effort we are trying to characterize the diverse states of cells (using proteomic and transcriptomic methods) and how signals describing those states are propagated from molecular and cellular length scales to tumor and organismic length scales.

    The Marinkovich lab studies the function of epithelial extracellular matrix molecules, including integrins, collagens and laminins in epithelial development and carcinoma progression. We apply our discoveries in this area towards development of molecular therapies for carcinomas, hair disease and inherited epithelial adhesive disorders.

    Research Interest

    CELLULAR INFORMATION PROCESSING The main problem in signal transduction is to understand how different receptor-stimuli specifically control diverse cell functions. We are using automated microscopy, live-cell fluorescent biosensors and perturbations of predicted signaling proteins to systematically dissect signaling networks. This allows us to identify signaling modules and to elucidate and ultimately model the flow of cellular information.

    • Blood and Marrow Transplantation
    Research Interest

    Investigates the targets of immune responses after human allogeneic stem cell transplantation. BMT patients develop antibodies against minor histocompatibility antigens (mHA) that are associated with chronic graft-v-host disease (cGVHD) and disease remission. Current projects: investigate Ab anti-tumor mechanism, high-throughput serologic identification of novel mHA in the development of GVHD and prevention of disease relapse, and clinical trials of B cell therapeutics for cGVHD.

    Beverly Mitchell's research relates to the development of new therapies for hematologic malignancies, including leukemias and myelodsyplastic syndromes. She is interested in preclinical proof of principle studies on mechanisms inducing cell death and on metabolic targets involving nucleic acid biosynthesis in malignant cells. She is also interested in the translation of these studies into clinical trials.

    Research Interest

    Two areas: 1. Using rationally-designed peptide inhibitors to study protein-protein interactions in cell signaling. We focus on protein kinase C (PKC)-mediated signal transduction and on mitochondrial dynamics in several disease models. 2. Using small molecules (identified in a high throughput screens and synthetic chemistry) as activators and inhibitors of aldehyde dehydrogenases, a family of detoxifying enzymes, we study their involvement in normal cells and in models of human diseases.
