Associate Professor of Pediatrics (Systems Medicine) & of Genetics and, by courtesy, of Computer Science, of Medicine (Immunology & Rheumatology) & of Pathology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The Butte Lab at Stanford builds and applies tools that convert more than 300 billion points of molecular, clinical, and epidemiological data -- measured by researchers and clinicians over the past decade -- into diagnostics, therapeutics, and new insights into disease.
Christopher A. Longhurst
Clinical Associate Professor, Pediatrics - Systems Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The focus of my scholarship is rigorously evaluating the impact of health information technology on patient safety and quality of care.
Clinical Assistant Professor, Pediatrics - Critical Care
Current Research and Scholarly Interests In my administrative role, I oversee the development and maintenance of clinical decision support tools within the electronic medical record. These clinical decision support tools are designed to enhance patient safety, efficiency, and quality of care. My research focuses on rigorously evaluating--1) how these tools affect clinician knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors; and 2) how these tools affect clinical outcomes and efficiency of health care delivery.
Jonathan P. Palma
Clinical Assistant Professor, Pediatrics - Neonatal and Developmental Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Clinical informatics: optimization of commercial EMRs to support complex clinical workflows in newborn intensive care; clinical decision support; real-time clinical dashboards; electronic sign-out tools; and IT-supported patient/family communication.
Analytics: LPCH's enterprise data warehouse; reporting of business and clinical metrics; and mining clinical data to generate new knowledge.
Acting Associate Professor, Pediatrics - Systems Medicine
Bio Dennis P. Wall, Associate Professor of Pediatrics and, by courtesy, Psychiatry
Dr. Wall is Associate Professor in the Department of Pediatrics and Division of Systems Medicine at Stanford University, where his lab is developing novel approaches in systems biology to decipher the molecular pathology of autism spectrum disorder and related neurological conditions. Dr. Wall received his doctorate in Integrative Biology from the University of California, Berkeley, where he pioneered the use of fast evolving gene sequences to trace population-scale diversification across islands. Then, with a postdoctoral fellowship award from the National Science Foundation, he went on to Stanford University to address broader questions in systems biology and computational genomics, work that resulted in comprehensive functional models for both protein mutation and protein interaction. Before joining the faculty at Stanford in 2013, He spent 10 years as faculty at Harvard Medical School in Systems Biology, Pediatrics and Pathology & as Director of Computational Biology at the Center for Biomedical Informatics, where he worked to decipher the molecular pathology of autism and improve our likelihood of discovering effective, early-stage diagnostics and targets for therapeutic intervention. Dr. Wall has acted as science advisor to several biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies, has created and advised on cutting-edge approaches to cloud computing, and has received numerous awards, including the Fred R. Cagle Award for Outstanding Achievement in Biology, the Vice Chancellor's Award for Research, three awards for excellence in teaching, the Harvard Medical School Leadership award, and the Slifka/Ritvo Clinical Innovation in Autism Research Award for outstanding advancements in clinical translation.
