Faculty members elected to American Society for Clinical Investigation

Four Stanford Medicine clinician-researchers were elected to the medical honor society.

Four Stanford Medicine faculty members were elected to the American Society for Clinical Medicine, an honor society of clinician-researchers founded in 1908. They will be inducted in April in Chicago. The society adds fewer than 80 new members each year, and new members must be younger than 50 years old.

The new members from Stanford are:

  • Paul Bollyky, MD, PhD, assistant professor of medicine and of microbiology and immunology, who specializes in infectious disease and the immunology of diabetes and diabetic wound management.
  • Rajat Rohatgi, MD, PhD, associate professor of biochemistry and of medicine, who investigates the signaling mechanisms that mediate cell-to-cell communication in development, disease and homeostasis.
  • Mintu Turakhia, MD, associate professor of medicine, a cardiac electrophysiologist who conducts clinical trials and outcomes research on interventions for heart rhythm disorders, such as atrial fibrillation.
  • Robert West, MD, PhD, professor of pathology, who investigates the molecular drivers of tumor formation, particularly in breast cancer and head and neck cancers, with the goal of identifying potential prognostic and therapeutic targets.


Stanford Medicine integrates research, medical education and health care at its three institutions - Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford Health Care (formerly Stanford Hospital & Clinics), and Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford.
