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.

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.
