Assistant Professor of Medicine (Infectious Diseases) and of Microbiology and Immunology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My lab's goals are to better understand virus-host protein interactions, identify host partners conservatively required by multiple viruses, and develop broad-spectrum host-centered antiviral approaches with a high genetic barrier for resistance. We combine novel proteomic approaches, including microfluidics platforms, with molecular virology, biochemical, and genomic approaches to achieve these goals. We focus on viruses from the Flaviviridae family (hepatitis C and dengue), as well as HIV.
Professor of Pathology and of Medicine (Immunology and Rheumatology)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dendritic cells, macrophages, NK cells and T cells; functional proteins and genes; immunotherapeutic approaches to cancer, autoimmune disease, neurodegenerative disease and metabolic disease.

Bio Feryal Erhun received her Ph.D. in Business Administration, with a concentration in Production and Operations Management from the Graduate School of Industrial Administration, Carnegie Mellon University in 2002. She holds a B.S. and a M.S. in Industrial Engineering from Bilkent University, Turkey. She was a faculty member in the Management Science and Engineering Department of Stanford University from 2002 until 2013.
Feryal investigates foundations of contemporary problems in operations management (OM) and use them to develop solutions to practical engineering problems. Her research interests are in the strategic interactions between stakeholders in supply chains. In this context, Feryal has studied topics related to supply chain contracting, capacity, and inventory decisions. More recently, she has turned her attention to socially responsible operations: today, both for‐profit businesses and nonprofit organizations aim to create the highest value for their shareholders, employees, partners, and the environment. Her research on nonprofits, healthcare OM, and sustainable supply chains has informed the development of theory addressing the unique challenges arising for these organizations and has extended traditional OM theory to these new and important settings.
Feryal is a strong proponent of practice-based research. Through collaborations with Intel Corporation, Cisco, Stanford University Medical Center, etc., she has been able to combine her academic interests with firms’ needs to deliver insights for both communities. Recently, her research group has designed a decision-support system for optimizing capital investment decisions for firms in capital-intensive industries in collaboration with Intel Corporation. This work has been selected as one of the finalists in the 2012 Franz Edelman Award, which recognizes outstanding examples of innovative operations research that improves organizations, and Feryal has been inducted as an Edelman Laureate. Feryal is a recipient of 2006 NSF CAREER Award with her project titled “Moving from Risks to Opportunities: An Exploratory Study of Risk Management in Supply Chains.”

Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am interested in applying economic analysis to understand and improve care of people with kidney disease.
Kambria H. Evans, M.Ed., M.A.
Academic Research & Program Officer, Medicine - Med/General Internal Medicine
Bio Kambria H. Evans, M.Ed., M.A., is an Academic Research and Program Officer at Stanford School of Medicine where she serves as both Program Officer of Quality and Organizational Improvement in clerkship and graduate medical education, and Specialist in Education and Evaluation in the Practice of Medicine Course (two-year doctoring course). For over a decade, she has led innovative research across the medical training continuum in quality/safety and medical education through partnership with Stanford Graduate Medical Education, Stanford Geriatric Education Center, Stanford Faculty Development Center, Stanford Medicine Continuing Medical Education, Stanford Hospitalist Group, Stanford Internal Medicine Clinic, Stanford Scholarly Concentration Program, Stanford Hospice and Palliative Care Fellowship Program, VA Palo Alto Health Care System, Stanford Department of Pediatrics, Stanford Department of Surgery, and Stanford Department of Emergency Medicine.
At Stanford since 2004, she completed certification and professional development through the University of Texas System, Clinical Safety & Effectiveness Course. She received a grant from the Stanford Center for Continuing Medical Education for online gaming development in quality and safety, which will be disseminated to Stanford Hospital staff and a requirement for residents in all 90 residency programs through the Stanford Graduate Medical Education Department. She received two consecutive grants from the Stanford Vice Provost for Online Learning to collaborate on flipped classroom design for Stanford medical students. She also received the Division of General Research Award for Clinician-Educators to collaborate on best practices during transition to Stanford clerkships.
She received a B.S. and M.Ed. in Human and Organizational Development from Vanderbilt University, where she received the award for Outstanding Community Development and Social Policy. She received a M.A. in Psychology from California Institute of Integral studies.
Mrs. Evans is an expert in medical education, psychology, organizational improvement, and quality/safety. She leads quality/safety courses and develops curriculum for Stanford medical students, residents, fellows, and faculty to educate them about quality improvement methodology. She mentors them through quality improvement projects at Stanford Hospital and Clinics, Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, and VA Palo Alto Health Care System to improve patient outcomes.
She highlights and disseminates this work in medical education and quality/safety as an invited speaker at national conferences, and internationally through publication in journals such as Academic Medicine, Academic Psychiatry, Journal of General Internal Medicine, Joint Commission Journal on Quality and Patient Safety, Journal of Hospital Medicine, American Journal of Medicine, Postgraduate Medical Journal, and PLOS ONE. Topics include blood transfusion practices, telemetry best practices and cost, online gaming for sepsis education, flipped classroom for quantitative medicine, impact of generational learners, medical students and electronic medical records, and discharge best practices.
Her research with Septris, a mobile-accessible, case-based, online game developed at Stanford, was piloted in 2012 with Stanford medical students and residents in Stanford Departments of Medicine, Surgery, and Emergency Medicine. By October 2014, Septris garnered over 61,000 visits worldwide in over 10 countries. After publication in Academic Medicine, this work was highlighted through an invited webinar with University HealthSystem Consortium. University of California Los Angeles Medical School, University College London Hospitals (United Kingdom), and University Medical Center of the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (Germany) collaborate with Stanford to utilize Septris at their institutions.
She is a reviewer for Academic Medicine, Journal of Hospital Medicine, and BMJ.
