Assistant Professor of Chemical and Systems Biology and of Developmental Biology
Daniel Jarosz, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor in the Departments of Chemical & Systems Biology and Developmental Biology at Stanford University. He received his B.S. in Chemistry and Biochemistry from the University of Washington and then moved to Massachusetts Institute of Technology for his PhD, where he investigated mechanisms of replication and mutagenesis in the laboratory of Dr. Graham Walker. Following his graduation in 2007, Dr. Jarosz pursued postdoctoral training at the Whitehead Institute with Dr. Susan Lindquist, a pioneer in the field of protein folding. In 2013 Dr. Jarosz established his independent group at Stanford University, where his research is focused on molecular mechanisms that contribute to robustness and evolvability. His work employs multidisciplinary systems approaches ranging from chemical biology to quantitative genetics to understand how these mechanisms contribute to evolution, disease, and development. Dr. Jarosz has received a number of distinctions including being named a Searle Scholar and Kimmel Scholar. He has also received a Science and Engineering Fellowship from the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, a Director's New Innovator Award from the NIH, a CAREER award from the NSF, a Pathway to Independence Award from the NIH, and a fellowship from the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation.
John and Marva Warnock Professor
Stefanie Jeffrey, MD, is the John and Marva Warnock Professor and Chief of Surgical Oncology Research in the Department of Surgery at Stanford University School of Medicine. She received her undergraduate degree in Chemistry and Physics and master’s degree in Chemistry from Harvard University. She graduated from medical school at University of California San Francisco (UCSF), where she also completed her surgical residency. Her lab focuses on technology development and applications related to liquid biopsy (CTCs, ctDNA, extracellular vesicles), droplet-based microfluidic platforms, and preclinical models for testing new cancer therapies.
Professor of Pediatrics (Hematology/Oncology) at the Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital
Associate Professor of Pathology at the Palo Alto Veteran's Health Care System and at Stanford University Medical Center
Dr. Kristin Jensen is a board-certified anatomic pathologist and cytopathologist, specializing in breast cancer diagnosis and treatment as well as fine needle aspiration technique. She has practiced pathology for more than 10 years and performs most of her clinical work at the VA Palo Alto Health Care System. Dr. Jensen has a special care in ancillary testing in breast cancer and other solid cancers, as well as medical education.
Professor of Medicine (Blood and Marrow Transplantation) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Dr. Laura Johnston currently serves as the Clinical Director and Clinic Chief of the Blood & Marrow Transplantation Division and specializes in Graft Versus Host Disease (GVHD), exploring prevention and treatment of acute and chronic GVHD via clinical trials. She conducts and develops clinical research trials in allogeneic and autologous hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) for hematologic malignancies: acute myelogenous leukemia (AML), acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL), chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), myeloproliferative disease, non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), Hodgkin disease, myelodysplasia and aplastic anemia.
