James D. Brooks
Keith and Jan Hurlbut Professor in the Stanford University School of Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests We use genomic approaches to identify disease biomarkers. We are most interested in translating biomarkers into clinical practice in urological diseases with a particular focus in cancer.
Professor of Medicine (Oncology) and of Biochemistry
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our laboratory focuses on understanding how cells respond to DNA damage. Our research currently involves areas that interact with each other: repair of radiation damage, and transcriptional responses to DNA damage.
Professor of Pediatrics (Hematology/Oncology) at the Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Hematology/Oncology, Phase I drug studies for childhood cancer, overcoming multidrug resistance in leukemia and solid tumors, biology and treatment of acute nonlymphocytic leukemia, early detection of central nervous system leukemia by measuring growth, factor binding proteins.
Max H. Stein Professor and Professor of Statistics and of Health Research and Policy (Biostatistics)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Theories of inference applied to biostatistical data;, the bootstrap method.
Associate Professor of Biochemistry
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our lab engineers proteins and small-molecule drugs at atomic resolution through a combination of structural calculations and combinatorial library synthesis. Our goal is to elucidate predictive principles by which novel shapes and catalytic properties can be conferred accurately on designed polypeptides.
John A. Overdeck Professor and Professor of Health Research and Policy (Biostatistics)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Flexible statistical modelling, datamining, bioinformatics, and statistical computing.
Senior Associate Dean, Graduate Education and Postdoctoral Affairs and Professor of Biochemistry and, by courtesy, of Chemistry
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our research is aimed at understanding the chemical and physical behavior underlying biological macromolecules and systems, as these behaviors define the capabilities and limitations of biology. Toward this end we study folding and catalysis by RNA, as well as catalysis by protein enzymes.
Stefanie S. Jeffrey, MD
John and Marva Warnock Professor
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Jeffrey led the multidisciplinary team from the Schools of Medicine, Engineering, and Genome Technology Center that invented the MagSweeper, an automated device that immunomagnetically captures live circulating tumor cells (CTCs) from cancer patient blood for single cell analysis or culture. Her lab also works on microfluidic technologies for tumor cell capture, characterization, and growth - with the goal of defining individual patient response to newer biologically-based cancer therapies.
Teri A Longacre
Professor of Pathology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Gynecological, breast and gastrointestinal pathology with major emphasis on ovarian cancer and ovarian tumors of low malignant potential. Pathology of familial and hereditary breast-ovarian-GI cancer.
Anson Lowe, MD
Associate Professor of Medicine (Gastroenterology and Hepatology)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our laboratory is focused on adenocarcinomas, which account for the majority of human solid tumors that result in death. Active projects include pancreatic, esophageal, colon, and lung adenocarcinomas. We have a particular interest in the regulation of signal transduction with respect to wound healing and cancer development. Active projects not only include cancer pathogenesis, but also the development of new diagnostic assays and drugs.
