Stephen J. Galli, MD
The Mary Hewitt Loveless, M.D. Professor in the School of Medicine and Professor of Microbiology and Immunology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The goals of Dr. Galli's laboratory are to understand the regulation of mast cell and basophil development and the expression of mast cell and basophil function, and to develop and use genetic approaches to elucidate the roles of these cells in health and disease.
Clinical Associate Professor, Pediatrics - Infectious Diseases
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The focus of my laboratory is the immune response to viral vaccines evaluating the ontogeny of responses in infants and limitations in immunocompromised hosts. We have studied responses to an early two-dose measles immunization, one versus 2 doses of varicella immunization, and polio vaccine in preterm versus term infants. Other active areas of research include measles and varicella immunity in HIV infected individuals, and transplant recipients.
Associate Professor of Comparative Medicine and, by courtesy, of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The medical research community has long recognized that good well-being is good science. The lab uses an integrated interdisciplinary approach, best described as developmental neuroethology, to explore this interface, while providing tangible deliverables for the well-being of human patients and research animals.
Amato J. Giaccia
Jack, Lulu and Sam Willson Professor, Professor of Radiation Oncology, and by courtesy, of Obstetrics and Gynecology and of Surgery
Current Research and Scholarly Interests During the last five years, we have identified several small molecules that kill VHL deficient renal cancer cells through a synthetic lethal screening approach. Another major interest of my laboratory is in identifying hypoxia-induced genes involved in invasion and metastases. We are also investigating how hypoxia regulates gene expression epigenetically.
Professor of Pediatrics (Hematology/Oncology) and, by courtesy, of Pathology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Hematology/Oncology, biology, and treatment of bone marrow failure disorders, hereditary coagulation disorders-clinical trials.
Neville H. Golden M.D.
The Marron and Mary Elizabeth Kendrick Professor in Pediatrics
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research has focused on the medical complications of adolescents with eating disorders. My specific area of study has been the etiology and implications of amenorrhea in adolescents with eating disorders, in particular the management of reduced bone mass and osteoporosis in anorexia nervosa.
Robert L. Hess Professor in Pediatrics
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Population-based studies related to neonatal and perinatal diseases.
Gerald Grant, MD, FACS
Associate Professor of Neurosurgery and, by courtesy, of Neurology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Grant directs a Blood-brain Barrier Translational Laboratory focusing on enhancing drug delivery to brain tumors in children.
Associate Professor of Radiation Oncology (Radiation Physics) and, by courtesy, of Radiology (Diagnostic Radiology)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Applications of molecular imaging in radiation therapy, development of hypoxia and radiosensitivity imaging techniques, small animal image-guided conformal radiotherapy, image processing and analysis.
