Current Research and Scholarly Interests We investigate the mechanisms by which normal cells become tumor cells, and we combine genetics, genomics, and proteomics approaches to investigate the differences between the proliferative response in response to injury and the hyperproliferative phenotype of cancer cells and to identify novel therapeutic targets in cancer cells.

Professor of Pediatrics (Rheumatology) at the Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The major emphasis of my work in the past decade has been focused on the future of academic pediatrics and pediatric rheumatology through providing training, research opportunities and environments to nurture and challenge future pediatric rheumatologists and subspecialists. Most recently my scope has expanded to include exploring new models of care for children with complex and chronic disease focused on improving quality and affordability.
Associate Professor of Pediatrics (General Pediatrics) at the Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital and, by courtesy, of Health Research and Policy (Epidemiology)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I conduct interdisciplinary research to understand child and parent health literacy as potentially modifiable determinants of child health disparities. I am principal investigator on an multi-site, randomized controlled trial to assess the efficacy of a low-literacy, early-childhood intervention designed to prevent obesity in the first two years of life. The aim of my current scholarship is to apply the health-literacy model to attenuate disparities for children with chronic illness.

Michael Scahill, MD MBA
Clinical Instructor, Pediatrics - Neonatal and Developmental Medicine
Bio On a trip to Mozambique while in med school here at Stanford, I saw the power of market interventions to improve population health. In Pediatric Leadership for the Underserved residency at UCSF, I helped Jacaranda Health establish their pediatric clinic in Nairobi. Now, I split my time between the Stanford NICU and Virta, where I direct the digitally delivered diabetes reversal clinic.
