  • Ellen Chang

    Ellen Chang

    Member, Stanford Cancer Institute

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Chang's research interests and activities include:

    • The etiology of virus-associated malignancies, including Hodgkin lymphoma, nasopharyngeal carcinoma, and hepatocellular carcinoma

    • The etiologic role of immune-related risk factors in cancer, especially lymphoid malignancies

    • The prevention of hepatitis B and hepatocellular carcinoma

    • Racial/ethnic disparities in cancer incidence and survival, particularly among Asians and Asian Americans

  • Christina Clarke

    Christina Clarke

    Member, Stanford Cancer Institute

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Clarke'’s research efforts are centered in five areas: 1) the epidemiology of breast cancer, 2) the epidemiology of lymphoid malignancies 3) immunologic and viral causes of malignancy, 4) cancer surveillance and creative uses of and ways to visually display cancer surveillance data (e.g, SEER, cancer registry data) and more recently, 5) internet-based, patient-centric methods for recruitment and data collection in epidemiologic studies.

  • Ronald W. Davis

    Ronald W. Davis

    Professor of Biochemistry and of Genetics

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests We are using Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Human to conduct whole genome analysis projects. The yeast genome sequence has approximately 6,000 genes. We have made a set of haploid and diploid strains (21,000) containing a complete deletion of each gene. In order to facilitate whole genome analysis each deletion is molecularly tagged with a unique 20-mer DNA sequence. This sequence acts as a molecular bar code and makes it easy to identify the presence of each deletion.

  • Paul Graham Fisher, MD

    Paul Graham Fisher, MD

    Bing Director of the Program in Human Biology, Beirne Family Professor of Pediatric Neuro-Oncology, Professor of Pediatrics and, by courtesy, of Neurosurgery at SUMC

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Clinical neuro-oncology: My research explores the epidemiology, natural history, and disease patterns of brain tumors in childhood, as well as prospective clinical trials for treating these neoplasms. Research interests also include neurologic effects of cancer and its therapies, and childhood headaches.

  • Sally Glaser

    Sally Glaser

    Member, Stanford Cancer Institute

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Glaser’'s interests in cancer epidemiology focus primarily on Hodgkin lymphoma, breast cancer, and surveillance research (the use of population-based cancer and other data to monitor cancer occurrence and related population patterns). In these areas, her work addresses cancer etiology and outcomes related to several risk factors, including EBV and HIV.

  • Scarlett Lin Gomez

    Scarlett Lin Gomez

    Member, Stanford Cancer Institute

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests As a cancer epidemiologist with a focus on surveillance research and social epidemiology, Dr. Gomez conducts research in two broad areas: 1) methodologic studies aimed at enhancing cancer registry data for studies of race/ethnicity and social determinants in cancer incidence and outcomes; and 2) studies to elucidate the underlying social factors responsible for racial/ethnic and socioeconomic health disparities, particularly those identified through surveillance data.

  • Lisa Henriksen

    Lisa Henriksen

    Sr Research Engineer, Medicine - Stanford Prevention Research Center

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research aims to improve our understanding of the health risks associated with exposure to tobacco marketing and provide a scientific rationale for new policies to reduce it. I also study use of media to promote and discourage adolescent tobacco use, and the impact of tobacco advertising on urge and craving to smoke.

  • Pamela Horn-Ross

    Pamela Horn-Ross

    Member, Stanford Cancer Institute

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interests focus on nutrition and the etiology of hormonally-dependent cancers in women (most particularly breast, endometrial, and thyroid cancers). Of particular interest are the effects of phytochemicals that may reduce cancer risk, such as the isoflavones in soy foods, the lignans in whole grains, the isothiocyanates in broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables, and resveratrol in red wine and peanuts. Nutrient-gene interactions are also of interest.

  • Lynne C. Huffman

    Lynne C. Huffman

    Associate Professor (Teaching) of Pediatrics (Neonatology) and, by courtesy, of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Research interests and activities include (1) the early identification and treatment of behavioral problems, particularly in children with special health care needs; (2) emergent literacy and school readiness; and, (3) community-based mental health/educational program evaluation and outcomes measurement.
