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.
Sanjiv Sam Gambhir, MD, PhD
Virginia and D.K. Ludwig Professor for Clinical Investigation in Cancer Research and Professor, by courtesy, of Bioengineering and Materials Sci & Engineering
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My laboratory focuses on merging advances in molecular biology with those in biomedical imaging to advance the new field of molecular imaging. Methods to image gene expression in living subjects have been developed. Newer approaches to image fundamental cellular events with optical and radiolabeled probes are under active investigation. These imaging approaches are expected to have a fundamental impact in the study of cancer biology, as well as in molecular therapeutics including gene therapy
Kristen N Ganjoo
Associate Professor of Medicine (Oncology) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Giant cell tumor of the bone
Gastrointestinal stromal tumors
Soft tissue sarcoma
Alan M. Garber
Henry J. Kaiser Jr. Professor and Professor of Medicine, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Topics in the health economics of aging; health, insurance; optimal screening intervals; cost-effectiveness of, coronary surgery in the elderly; health care financing and delivery, in the United States and Japan; coronary heart disease
Professor of Molecular and Cellular Physiology and of Structural Biology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Structural and functional studies of transmembrane receptor interactions with their ligands in systems relevant to human health and disease - primarily in immunity, infection, and neurobiology. We study these problems using protein engineering, structural, biochemical, and combinatorial biology approaches.
Professor (Research) of Medicine (Stanford Prevention Research Center)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The role of nutrition in individual and societal health, with particular interests in: plant-based diets, differential response to low-carb vs. low-fat weight loss diets by insulin resistance status, chronic disease prevention, randomized controlled trials, human nutrition, community based studies, Community Based Participatory Research, sustainable food movement (animal rights and welfare, global warming, human labor practices), stealth health, nutrition policy, nutrition guidelines
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.
Iris C. Gibbs, MD, FACR
Associate Professor of Radiation Oncology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Gibbs is a board-certified radiation oncologist who specializes in the treatment of CNS tumors. Her research focuses on developing new radiation techniques to manage brain and spinal tumors in adults and children. Dr. Gibbs has gained worldwide acclaim for her expertise in Cyberknife robotic radiosurgery.
Kathryn Simmons Professor
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia- Evaluation and development of new minimally invasive techniques
Endourology: developing, designing and evaluating new instruments
Bladder cancer: outcomes of treatment
BPH: cryotherapy and HIFU
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.
