    • Neurology
    Research Interest

    Our laboratory focuses on two interrelated projects: (1) assessment of glioma development within the framework of the multistage model of carcinogenesis through utilization of the rodent model of ENU neurocarcinogenesis; and (2) assessment of stem cell specification and pluripotency using an embryonic stem cell model system in which neural differentiation is induced.

    Senior Fellow, Center for International Security and Cooperation
    Member, Stanford Cancer Institute
    Clinical Focus
    • Infectious Disease
    Research Interest

    My investigative program focuses on human-microbe interactions and human microbial ecology, and primarily concerns the ecology of human indigenous microbial communities; a secondary interest concerns the classification of humans with systemic infectious diseases, based on features of genome-wide gene transcript abundance patterns and pther aspects of the host response.

  • Research Interest

    Dr. Reynolds directs the environmental research group at CPIC, with primary research interests in the environmental influences in the etiology of breast cancer and cancers in children. She has also conducted research in the role of second hand smoking in the development of cancers of the lung, breast and colon.

  • Assistant Professor of Surgery at the Stanford University Medical Center
    Member, Stanford Cancer Institute
    Clinical Focus
    • GI Oncology
    • Colon and Rectal Surgery
    • Pelvic Floor Disorders
    Research Interest

    My primary research focuses on the quality of care in hospitals where minorities receive cancer treatment and the impact on cancer outcomes and disparities. As the Director of the Cancer Institute Community Partnership Program, I am moving our results into the community, training cancer advocates; building community capacity for community based participatory research in cancer and working to increase minority participation in cancer clinical trials.

  • The Irving Schulman, M.D. Endowed Professor in Child Health and Professor of Medicine (Stanford Prevention Research Center)
    Member, Child Health Research Institute
    Member, Stanford Cancer Institute
    Affiliate, Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment
    Clinical Focus
    • Pediatrics, General
    • Obesity, Children and Adolescents
    • Pediatrics
    Research Interest

    Dr. Robinson focuses on "solution-oriented" research, developing and evaluating effective health promotion and disease prevention interventions for children and adolescents. His research is mostly experimental, conducting school-, family- and community-based randomized controlled trials to test theory-driven behavioral, social and environmental interventions to prevent obesity, improve nutrition, increase physical activity, reduce smoking, and study the effects of children's television use.

  • Associate Professor of Medicine (Immunology and Rheumatology)
    Member, Bio-X
    Member, Child Health Research Institute
    Member, Stanford Cancer Institute
    Clinical Focus
    • Immunology and Rheumatology
    • Rheumatology
    Research Interest

    Our lab studies the molecular mechanisms of and develops therapies to treat autoimmune and rheumatic diseases, with a focus on rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and osteoarthritis.

    The overriding objectives of our laboratory are:

    1. To investigate the mechanisms underlying autoimmune diseases.

    2. To develop diagnostics and therapeutics for autoimmune diseases.

    3. To investigate the role of inflammation in osteoarthritis.

  • Allan and Tina Neill Professor of Lymphatic Research and Medicine
    Member, Stanford Cancer Institute
    Clinical Focus
    • Lymphatic Diseases
    • Cardiology (Heart)
    • Cardiology (Heart), Preventive
    Research Interest

    My clinical research includes studies on risk factor modification in atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease; clinical trials involving medical therapies for peripheral arterial insufficiency; coronary angiogenesis; therapy of lymphedema; atherand photodynamic therapy in atherosclerosis.

  • Assistant Professor of Biochemistry and of Medicine (Oncology)
    Member, Bio-X
    Member, Child Health Research Institute
    Member, Stanford Cancer Institute
    Clinical Focus
    • Medical Oncology
    Research Interest

    We are working to elucidate the biochemical and cell biological principles that govern signaling pathways that sit at the intersection between developmental biology and cancer. Our toolkit combines bulk biochemical techniques, such as cell-free reconstitution, with microscopy using novel optical probes to study the dynamics of signal propagation in cells. We strive to develop novel strategies for the manipulation of these pathways for cancer therapies and applications in regenerative medicine.

  • Associate Professor of Medicine (Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine), Emeritus
    Member, Bio-X
    Member, Stanford Cancer Institute
    Clinical Focus
    • Pulmonology (Lung) and Critical Care
    • Pulmonary Disease
    • Interstitial Lung Disease
    Research Interest

    Our laboratory examines apoptotic and cell signaling pathways in cancer and lung disease. We are studying signaling pathways that regulate oxidative stress responses and cancer cell growth. Part of these studies focus on analysis of non-canonical transcription regulatory functions of the TERC and Tert components of telomerase in lung disease and cancer.

    • Cardiology (Heart), Pediatric
    • Heart Failure
    Research Interest

    Research interests include the study of Heart Failure, Cardiomyopathy and ventricular dysfunction in children, from a clinical perspective. Investigations include clinical trials of medications, cardiac resynchronization, and mechanical circulatory support.

  • Assistant Professor of Radiology (General Radiology) and of Medicine (Biomedical Informatics Research)

    • Diagnostic Radiology
    • Radiology
    • Imaging informatics
    Research Interest

    My research interest is imaging informatics--ways computers can work with images to leverage their rich information content and to help physicians use images to guide personalized care. Work in our lab thus lies at the intersection of biomedical informatics and imaging science.

  • Research Interest

    Dr. Rull’s is an environmental epidemiologist whose research is focused on identifying the role of pollutants such as pesticides, traffic emissions, and other air pollutants in increasing the risk of developing cancer.
