Professor of Medicine (Blood and Marrow Transplantation) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Dr. Janice (Wes) Brown specializes in the treatment of infectious complications that occur in patients who are receiving cancer treatments or are undergoing transplantation of solid organs or hematopoietic cells. She has been a member of the Blood and Marrow Transplantation faculty for more than twenty years and co-founded the Immunocompromised Host Infectious Diseases consultation service. Dr. Brown’s special interest is to understand the nature of immunodeficiency resulting from an ever- evolving spectrum of targeted and immunomodulatory therapy. Her laboratory studies approaches to enhance and/or rebuild protective immunity. She is a leader in the design and execution of clinical trials of new treatments for infections that have significantly improved the outcomes of high-risk patients.
Michele and Timothy Barakett Endowed Professor
Dr. Brunet is interested in the molecular mechanisms of aging and longevity, with a particular emphasis on the nervous system. Her lab is interested in identifying pathways involved in delaying aging in response to external stimuli such as availability of nutrients and mates. She also seeks to understand the mechanisms that influence the rejuvenation of old stem cells. Finally, her lab has pioneered the naturally short-lived African killifish as a new model to explore the regulation of aging and age-related diseases.
Professor of Biomedical Data Science, of Genetics and, by courtesy, of Biology
Dr. Carlos D. Bustamante is an internationally recognized leader in the application of data science and genomics technology to problems in medicine, agriculture, and biology. He received his Ph.D. in Biology and MS in Statistics from Harvard University (2001), was on the faculty at Cornell University (2002-9), and was named a MacArthur Fellow in 2010. He is currently Professor of Biomedical Data Science, Genetics, and (by courtesy) Biology at Stanford University. Dr. Bustamante has a passion for building new academic units, non-profits, and companies to solve pressing scientific challenges. He is Founding Director of the Stanford Center for Computational, Evolutionary, and Human Genomics (CEHG) and Inaugural Chair of the Department of Biomedical Data Science. He is the Owner and President of CDB Consulting, LTD. and also a Director at Eden Roc Biotech, founder of Arc-Bio (formerly IdentifyGenomics and BigData Bio), and an SAB member of Embark Veterinary, the Mars/IBM Food Safety Board, and Digital Ventures.
Professor of Radiation Oncology (Radiation Therapy) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Professor of Mechanical Engineering
Professor Cappelli is the author of over 100 papers in these areas. He is currently a member of the Editorial Board of Diamond Films and Technology. He is also secretary of the Electric Propulsion Technical Committee of the American Institute for Aeronautics and Astronautics.
Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine (Adult Pain) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Dr. Carroll joined Stanford's Pain Medicine Faculty in 2004. He is board-certified in four different specialties: Headache Medicine by the United Council for Neurologic Subspecialties; Addiction Medicine by the American Board of Addiction Medicine; Pain Medicine by the American Board of Anesthesiology; and Anesthesiology by the American Board of Anesthesiology. His primary focus is on chronic daily headaches, chronic migraine, occipital neuralgia, and New Daily Persistent Headaches (NDPH) especially as related to related to spinal cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leaks, and nerve injuries. He has collaborated With Stanford's Neuroradiology and Neurology Headache divisions to create the Stanford CSF leak program, and Stanford's Peripheral Nerve Injury Pain Program. He has spoken at numerous national meetings on CSF leaks, management of the pain from nerve injuries, and factors influencing opioid cessation. He has conducted visiting professorships at Johns Hopkins University, Vanderbilt University, Cedar-Sinai Medical Center, University of California at Davis Medical Center, and others. Dr. Carroll graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from Columbia University, and then graduated with an M.D. from Columbia University. He was a Research Fellow at the Experimental Immunology Branch at the National Cancer Institute at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda Maryland. He completed his internship in Internal Medicine, residency in Anesthesiology, fellowship in Pain Medicine, and was elected Chief Resident of Anesthesiology from 2001-2002 at Stanford University Medical Center. Dr. Carroll completed Stanford's two-year Clinical Research training program earning a M.S. degree in clinical epidemiology from Stanford in 2006. He has published over 30 original articles including research funded by the Foundation for Anesthesia Education and Research (FAER); the National Institute for Drug Abuse (NIDA); and the Stanford Institute for Neuro-Innovation & Translational Neurosciences (SINTN). In addition to his clinical and research responsibilities, Dr. Carroll helps select and train Stanford's Anesthesia residents, and runs the Morbidity and Mortality conference for Stanford's Pain Management division.
Professor of Medicine (Gastroenterology and Hepatology)
Dr Cartwright is a Professor of Medicine and Gastroenterology (with tenure) at Stanford University. She trained at the University of California San Diego and the Salk Institute for Biological Studies before joining the Stanford Faculty in 1989. Her research in cancer biology focuses on understanding how normal intestinal cells regulate their growth and how loss of that regulation results in malignant transformation. She is an author on numerous scientific publications. Her research has been supported by grants from the National Institutes of Health, the American Cancer Society, the Broad Medical Research Foundation and the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America. She has served on NIH and American Cancer Society Study Sections and on the Editorial Board of the Gastrointestinal and Liver Physiology section of the American Journal of Physiology. In 1995 she was inducted into the American Society for Clinical Investigation. In 2008 she received an Outstanding Woman in Science Award from the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) for her contributions to GI research. She has been an invited speaker, organizer and chairperson for numerous national AGA symposia on the molecular biology of gastrointestinal cancers. Dr Cartwright’s clinical interests focus on caring for those with inflammatory bowel diseases. She has cared for nearly 5,000 IBD patients over the past 3 decades. She served as Director of the Program for Inflammatory Bowel Diseases at Stanford University (1989-2007). She also served on the Editorial Board of the Inflammatory Bowel Diseases Journal and on the National Scientific Advisory Committee (Clinical Affairs/Professional Education) of the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America. In 2000 she received the Premier Physician Award from the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America Greater Bay Area Chapter. She has been an invited speaker, organizer and chairperson for numerous IBD symposia in northern California.
