Ash A. Alizadeh, MD/PhD
Assistant Professor of Medicine (Oncology)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research is focused on attaining a better understanding of the initiation, maintenance, and progression of tumors, and their response to current therapies toward improving future treatment strategies. In this effort, I employ tools from functional genomics, computational biology, molecular genetics, and mouse models.
Clinically, I specialize in the care of patients with lymphomas, working on translating our findings in prospective cancer clinical trials.
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Oncology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research focuses on understanding the evolution of tumor cell populations, on how selective pressures, such as those imposed by chemo- and radiotherapies, favor the survival of one tumor cell population over another. Towards this goal I develop algorithms that measure intra-tumor heterogeneity from next-generation sequencing data or from more traditional diagnostic procedures, such as H&E stainings.
My long-term goal is to develop an adaptable therapeutic strategy that vastly increases the number of alternative therapy options and that rationalizes therapy choice.
Douglas W. Blayney, MD, FACP
Professor of Medicine (Oncology) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Improving the quality of cancer care at Stanford, in our network of care, and nationally
Robert W. Carlson
Professor of Medicine (Oncology and General Internal Medicine/Medical Informatics) at the Stanford University Medical Center, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Clinical investigations in breast cancer include institutional and NSABP studies of chemoprevention, adjuvant therapy, psychosocial interventions, treatment of metastatic disease, methods of decreasing anthracycline cardiotoxicity, and modulation of multidrug resistance. Research in meta-analysis includes the performance of meta-analysis in a wide variety of settings in cancer treatment by the international Meta-Analysis Group in Cancer.
Postdoctoral Medical Fellow, Oncology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research is on the translational application of next-generation sequencing technologies to breast cancer care: (1) the value of hereditary cancer genetic panel testing in clinical practice, (2) the mechanisms by which inherited genetic variants lead to breast cancer development, and (3) the analysis of somatic tumor sequencing data to inform understanding of breast tumorigenesis, metastasis, and development of resistance in response to therapeutics.
