Assistant Professor of Urology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Renal cell carcinoma and prostate cancer outcomes research and epidemiology.
Assistant Professor of Neurology and, by courtesy, of Neurosurgery at the Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My clinical research interests focus on the field of pediatric stroke, and include causes of arteriopathies, novel neuroimaging techniques for the diagnosis of arteriopathies, and maximizing functional outcome after stroke in children. As a member of the International Pediatric Stroke Study, we contribute to an international database of children following stroke, thereby facilitating multi-centered research in this area.
Consulting Professor, Health Research & Policy
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Chronic disease epidemiology, particularly cancer, cardiovascular disease, adverse effects of smoking, alcohol and pharmaceuticals, evaluation of screening tests.
Most of my career has been in the Kaiser Permanente Division of Research where I was Director for 7 years and am still active. I especially enjoy mentoring students and trainees at Stanford.
Professor of Medicine (General Medical Disciplines) and in HRP (Epidemiology)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am interested in issues relating to the representation and measurement of evidence in medical research, and determinants of the truth of medical findings, using a Bayesian framework. I also do work in evidence synthesis, comparative effectiveness research, and the ethics of clinical research. Finally, I have an ongoing project related to landmark clinical trials that have had great impact.

Abby C. King
Professor of Health Research and Policy and of Medicine (Stanford Prevention Research Center)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My interests include the application of behavioral theory and social ecological approaches to achieve large scale changes impacting chronic disease prevention and control; expanding the reach and translation of evidence-based interventions through state-of-the-art technologies; exploring social and physical environmental influences on health; applying community participatory research perspectives to address health disparities; and policy-level approaches to health promotion/disease prevention.
Associate Professor of Medicine (Endocrinology) and, by courtesy, of Health Research and Policy at the Palo Alto Veterans Affairs Health Care System
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My group focuses on the molecular epidemiology, disease prevention, and outcomes related to hormonal and metabolic perturbations. We are interested in their clinical and population impact in major diseases, and their interactions with other important contributors and effects on response to interventions, across the lifespan. We are interested in refining biostatistical and clinical research designs and methods, to incorporate new technologies and improve efficiency in health care practices.
