Genetics Faculty

George D. Smith Professor of Molecular and Genetic Medicine and Professor of Pathology and of Genetics

Fire Lab

The Fire Lab studies the mechanisms by which cells and organisms respond to genetic change.

Professor of Medicine (Oncology) and of Genetics and, by courtesy, of Pediatrics

Ford Lab

The major focus of this laboratory is to explore the mammalian genetic determinants of the inducible response and cellular sensitivity.

Associate Professor of Bioengineering and of Genetics

Fordyce Lab

The Fordyce Lab develops new microfluidic tools for making systems-scale, biophysical measurements of genomic interactions.

Professor of Genetics and of Pediatrics, Emerita
Donald Kennedy Chair in the School of Humanities and Sciences and Professor of Genetics

Frydman Lab

The Frydman lab uses a multidisciplinary approach to address fundamental questions about molecular chaperones, protein folding and degradation.

Reed-Hodgson Professor of Human Biology, Katharine Dexter McCormick and Stanley McCormick Memorial Professor and Professor of Genetics and of Obstetrics/Gynecology (Reproductive and Stem Cell Biology)

Fuller Lab

A major focus of our work concerns the mechanisms that regulate stem cell behavior.

Assistant Professor of Pediatrics (Cardiology) and of Genetics

Gifford Lab

Our goal is to identify the complex genetic and molecular mechanisms that are necessary for faithful cardiovascular development and how perturbation of these mechanisms can lead to disease.

Stanford Medicine Basic Science Professor

Gitler Lab

We investigate the mechanisms of human neurodegenerative diseases.

Professor of Pediatrics (Endocrinology) and of Genetics

Translational Genomics of Diabetes Lab

We aim to understand the genetic basis of diabetes and related metabolic conditions and to use this to leverage a better understanding of what causes diabetes and how we can improve treatment options for patients.

Deane F. and Kate Edelman Johnson Professor of Law and, Professor, by courtesy, of Genetics


We work on ethical, legal, and social issues in the Biosciences, including genetics.

Professor of Genetics

Greenleaf Lab

Our lab focuses on developing methods to probe the genome and epigenome at the single-cell and single-molecule levels.

Clinical Professor, Genetics Clinical Professor, Pediatrics - Medical Genetics
Assistant Professor of Bioengineering and of Genetics

Hernandez-Lopez Lab

Our group works at the interface of mechanistic, synthetic, and systems biology for understanding and reprogramming biomedical relevant cellular behaviors. We are currently interested in cellular therapies against cancer.

Department of Genetics Flow Cytometry Professor

Hernzenberg Lab

Gene Regulation, Molecular Immunology, B-cell development, FACS development...

Assistant Professor of Genetics

Jerby Lab

The Jerby Lab studies multicellular dynamics as a disease driver and therapeutic avenue, focusing on the cancer-immune interplay. 

Dennis Farrey Family Professor of Pediatrics, and Professor of Genetics

Kay Lab

We study gene/RNAi therapeutics and the mechanisms of non-coding RNA-induced gene regulation.

Violetta L. Horton Professor and Professor of Microbiology and Immunology

Kirkegaard Lab

We study the genetics, immunology, cell biology, and biochemistry of positive-strand RNA virus propagation.

Associate Professor of Genetics and of Computer Science

Kundaje Lab

The Kundaje lab develops computational models of gene regulation by integrating diverse types of large scale functional genomic data.

Professor of Genetics

Li Lab

We are interested in RNA editing and modifications, with a focus on understanding their roles in innate immunity and their implications in autoimmune diseases, viral infection, and cancer.

Professor of Pathology and of Genetics

Lipsick Lab

Our laboratory studies the structure and function of chromosomes and chromatin in metazoans.
