Everett Meyer, MD, PhD
Medicine – Blood and Marrow Transplantation
As a physician-scientist, I see patients, run clinical trials, and also have a small lab of people focusing on translational immunology and immunotherapy. I hope to improve bone marrow transplantation. As an undergraduate I was interested in basic science and medicine. I decided to pursue basic science first, beginning in an evolution and ecology lab here at Stanford as a masters/PhD student. While I was in that program, I realized I was missing the human element. I wanted to do research that could be used to help people. Eventually, I learned about bone marrow transplant, a field where you can practice translational immunology.
I enjoy getting to know my patients, especially getting to see the quiet bravery. It is a privilege to care for people who are, in some ways, in the worst time of their lives. The complexity of the science and the humanism is a perfect combination.
