Heather Wakelee, MD
Associate Professor of Medicine (Oncology) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Wakelee's research is focused on clinical trials in patients with lung cancer and other thoracic malignancies such as thymoma and thymic carcinoma. She also works with novel agents for all malignancies as part of the developmental therapeutics group of the cancer center. Other interests include translation projects in thoracic malignancies and collaborations with population scientists regarding lung cancer questions.
C. Jason Wang, MD, PhD
Associate Professor of Pediatrics (General Pediatrics) and of Medicine (Primary Care Outcomes Research) at the Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital
Bio Dr. Wang is the Director of Center for Policy, Outcomes and Prevention. Prior to coming to Stanford in 2011, he was a faculty member at Boston University Schools of Medicine and Public Health. His other professional experiences include working as a management consultant with McKinsey and Company and serving as the project manager for Taiwan's National Health Insurance Reform Task-force. His current interests include: 1) developing tools for assessing and improving the value of healthcare; 2) facilitating the use of mobile technology in improving quality of care; 3) supporting competency-based medical education curriculum, and 4) engaging in healthcare reform.
Paul J. Wang, MD
Professor of Medicine (Cardiovascular Medicine) and, by courtesy, of Bioengineering at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Wang's research centers on the development of innovative approaches to the treatment of arrhythmias, including more effective catheter ablation techniques, more reliable implantable devices, and less invasive treatments. Dr. Wang's clinical research interests include atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia, syncope, and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Dr. Wang has active collaborations with Bioengineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Electrical Engineering Departments at Stanford.

Assistant Professor of Medicine (Infectious Diseases)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our lab studies human immunity and susceptibility to viral pathogens. Studies are driven by the observation that humans generate unique IgG Fc domain repertoires, or “fingerprints”, defined by serum IgG subclass and Fc glycoform distributions. We have discovered that the Fc domain fingerprint of an individual determines key immune processes such as vaccine responses and susceptibility to infectious diseases (Cell. 2015 Jul 2;162, Science. 2017 Jan 27;355). This is because the repertoire of serum IgG subclass and Fc glycofoms dictates the affinity of immune complexes for various Fc receptors on effector cells. Ultimately, the Fc domain fingerprint of an individual determines the quality of effector cell responses that can be recruited during immune activation. Ongoing projects in the lab are defining the role of the Fc fingerprint in susceptibility to viral diseases (influenza, dengue and Zika) and in the maturation of protective antibody responses. Much of our research revolves around clinical studies that are designed to clarify how the Fc domain fingerprint impacts specific immune functions.
