Women Faculty Network Spring Reception

Location TBD

This is an informal reception presented by The Office of Faculty Development and Diversity. We will be joined by special guests Dean Lloyd Minor and Vice Dean Linda Boxer.

Lloyd B. Minor, MD, is the Carl and Elizabeth Naumann Dean of the Stanford University School of Medicine. Under his leadership, Stanford Medicine has emerged as a leader in the Precision Health revolution, which emphasizes preventive, personalized health care and leverages advances in biomedicine to treat and cure complex diseases. His book, “Discovering Precision Health,” published in 2020, illustrates how Stanford Medicine and other health leaders are revolutionizing biomedicine. In 2021, he articulated a bold vision for the purposeful and equitable development of a life sciences innovation hub in the Bay Area. Dr. Minor also is a professor of Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery and a professor of Bioengineering and of Neurobiology, by courtesy, at Stanford University. With more than 160 published articles and chapters, Dr. Minor is an expert in balance and inner ear disorders. In 2012, he was elected to the National Academy of Medicine.

Dr. Linda M. Boxer is the Vice Dean of Stanford University School of Medicine and the Stanley McCormick Memorial Professor in the School of Medicine.

Dr. Boxer joined the Stanford faculty in the Department of Medicine, Division of Hematology, and held a position at the Department of Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Health Care System.

Her laboratory investigated the mechanisms of deregulated expression of oncogenes by translocation into the immunoglobulin locus in B cells lymphomas. Dr. Boxer’s clinical expertise is in hematology malignancies, and she serves as an attending physician on the inpatient hematology consult service. She was director of the Clinical Investigator Pathway (the ABIM research pathway) in the Department of Medicine and the hematology fellowship director for eight years.
