Current Research and Scholarly Interests Using poliovirus as a model system, the Kirkegaard laboratory has developed a method to decrease the risk of drug-resistance during RNA virus antiviral therapy by targeting dominant drug targets. My goal is to identify equivalent dominant drug targets in hepatitis C virus in order to decrease the risk of drug-resistance during hepatitis C virus antiviral therapy.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our research focuses on gene microarray analysis of human soft tissue tumors (sarcomas). In addition we work with tissue microarrays to characterize large numbers of novel antisera raised against peptides derived from genes found to be of interest during gene array analysis.

Deputy Director, Canary Center at Stanford, Rad/Canary Center at Stanford for Cancer Early Detection
Bio As Deputy Director of the Canary Center at Stanford for Cancer Early Detection I broadly oversee its operations and research programs. The Canary Center is focused on developing in vitro and in vivo tools for early cancer detection and its research spans the areas of biomarker discovery, development of molecular imaging agents, development of new diagnostic and imaging devices, and mathematical modeling. In my position I facilitate the clinical translation of cancer diagnostic tools and I enable innovative interdisciplinary research. My research expertise includes leading phase I-II clinical trials to evaluate a newly developed optical breast imaging system in combination with a novel imaging agent. I gained valuable experience in clinical translation of medical devices and in testing new imaging agents for the first time in patients. My training as a Radiology resident was instrumental in my decision to focus on cancer early detection research, because it clearly confronted me with the problem that most cancer patients are being diagnosed too late. I expanded my knowledge on biomarker research by developing proteomics assays during my postdoctoral fellowship at Stanford, in conjunction with my continued work in optical and photoacoustic molecular imaging. In my current role, I work with the faculty of the Canary Center and the Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford, and am committed to advancing cancer research by applying my medical training, clinical knowledge, and research expertise to managing collaborative programs and contribute to the success of the Center and its faculty.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our research group is dedicated to improving care for children with degenerative neurological disorders. We are particularly focused on genetic and autoimmune disorders that cause damage to the myelin (the fatty insulation around the nerves) of the brain and spinal cord. X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy (genetic) and multiple sclerosis (autoimmune) are the prototypical examples of degenerative disorders of myelin; these are the two disorders we study most intensively.
