Current Research and Scholarly Interests Hematology/Oncology, Phase I drug studies for childhood cancer, overcoming multidrug resistance in leukemia and solid tumors, biology and treatment of acute nonlymphocytic leukemia, early detection of central nervous system leukemia by measuring growth, factor binding proteins.
Associate Professor of Radiology (General Radiology)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests As a physician-scientist involved in the care of patients and investigating novel "cellular imaging" technologies, my goal is to develop innovative, non-invasive, clinically applicable imaging solutions to significant problems in disease diagnosis. My research team works on novel "cellular imaging" techniques for improved detection and characterization of malignant tumors, for the diagnosis of immune system disorders and for in vivo evaluation of stem cell transplants.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests Molecular mechanisms of lymphocyte recognition and differentiation; Systems immunology and human immunology; vaccination and infection.
John W. Day, MD, PhD
Professor of Neurology, of Pediatrics (Genetics) and, by courtesy, of Pathology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our Neuromuscular Division coordinates a comprehensive effort to conquer peripheral nerve and muscle disorders, including the muscular dystrophies, motor neuron disorders, neuromuscular junction abnormalities, and peripheral neuropathies. With patients and families foremost in mind, we have had success defining and combating these diseases, with research focused on identifying genetic causes, developing novel treatment, and maximizing patient function by optimizing current management.
Cornelia L. Dekker, M.D.
Professor (Research) of Pediatrics (Infectious Diseases)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The Stanford-LPCH Vaccine Program provides an infrastructure for conducting clinical studies of vaccines in children and adults. We conduct immunology studies of seasonal influenza vaccines in twins, in a longitudinal cohort of young and elderly adults and studies of vaccine candidates for NIH and industry. Additionally, we were a CDC Clinical Immunization Safety Assessment site for 10 years working on safety issues concerning licensed vaccines.
Associate Professor (Research) of Medicine (Quantitative Sciences Unit) and, by courtesy, of Health Research and Policy
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Desai is the Director of the Quantitative Sciences Unit. She is interested in the application of biostatistical methods to all areas of medicine including oncology, nephrology, and endocrinology. She works on methods for the analysis of epidemiologic studies, clinical trials, and studies with missing observations.
Assistant Professor of Medicine (Pulmonary and Critical Care)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Development and maintenance of alveolar epithelium; alveolar morphogenesis and repair; lung adenocarcinoma cell type of origin
Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery and, by courtesy, of Neurology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Neural circuits of movement control in health and movement disorders
Professor of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Field of clinical pharmacology. This involves analysis of what the body does to a drug (pharmacokinetics) and how exactly a specific drug affects the body (pharmacodynamics). His research starts at the level of new drug development with detailed analysis of the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of a medication.
