Instructor, Pediatrics - Pulmonary Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am currently studying filamentous phage in Pseudomonas infection in cystic fibrosis.
Clinical Associate Professor, Pediatrics - Pulmonary Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Her scholarly work has been focused on pediatric health in vulnerable communities. Her current research is pulmonary outcomes of patients with neuromuscular disease. She is involved in clinical trials in patients with neuromuscular disease.
Clinical Assistant Professor, Pediatrics - Pulmonary Medicine
Bio Dr. Chen is a Clinical Assistant Professor with the Division of Pediatric Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine. She grew up in the Bay Area and attended undergraduate school at UC Berkeley (Go Bears!). She ventured across the country received her graduate and medical degrees at Boston University School of Medicine. After experiencing cold and snowy winters of the east coast, she returned to the Bay Area where she completed her pediatric residency and pulmonology fellowship at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland. She joined Bay Area Pediatric Pulmonary Medical Group and subsequently the Division of Pediatric Pulmonary Medicine at Stanford University in 2015. She then followed her husband and moved to Los Angeles in 2016 where she joined the Division of Pediatric Pulmonology at UCLA as Associate Director of the Cystic Fibrosis Center. A few years later, she decided to return to her roots in the Bay Area. She made her way back to Stanford University and rejoined the pediatric pulmonology group in November 2019. She enjoys caring for children, from infancy and beyond, with pulmonary diseases and developing relationships with their families. Her particular interests include bronchopulmonary dysplasia, asthma, neuromuscular disease, cystic fibrosis, and evaluation of complex airways with bronchoscopy. She also has interest in quality improvement and policy and procedure development.
Associate Professor of Pediatrics (Pulmonary Medicine) at Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am interested in studying the effects of inflammation in the lung, in particular, how N-acetylcysteine may affect and decrease that in CF patients. I am the PI of a multi-center study researching this question. Additionally, in a separate study involving children who have received lung transplants, I am a participating site in an NIH-sponsored observational and mechanistic multi-center study that will examine the role of viral infections in causing chronic graft rejection.
David N. Cornfield
Anne T. and Robert M. Bass Professor in Pediatric Pulmonary Medicine and Professor, by courtesy, of Surgery
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Over the past 20 years, the Cornfield Laboratory has focused upon basic, translational and clinical research, with a primary focus on lung biology. As an active clinician-scientist, delivering care to acutely and chronically ill infants and children, our lab focuses on significant clinical challenges and tried to use science to craft novel solutions to difficult clinical problems.
John D. Mark
Clinical Professor, Pediatrics - Pulmonary Medicine
Bio Dr. Mark received his medical degree from the University of Kansas and completed his residency in pediatrics at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri. He then completed a fellowship in pediatric pulmonary medicine at the University of Rochester, Rochester, New York. In 1999, Dr. Mark completed the first fellowship in Pediatric Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona. He practices at Packard Children’s Hospital where he utilizes non-conventional approaches with patients who have chronic illnesses such asthma and cystic fibrosis. He is interested in nutrition and the mind/body approach to healing in an effort to decrease dependence on medication.
Dr. Mark is the Program Director for the Pediatric Pulmonary fellowship program, Associate Director for the Pediatric residency program and the Medical Director for the Coordinating and Optimizing Resources Effectively (CORE) Program at Packard Children’s Hospital, Stanford University. This innovative program assists with care coordination and communication with all health care providers for children with complex medical needs.
Professor of Pediatrics (Pulmonary Medicine) at the Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interests have centered on the inflammatory responses that lead to airway disease in Cystic Fibrosis (CF) and the metabolic factors that contribute to CF lung disease progression. Current efforts are focused on the understanding of the early events that drive the development of lung disease through the study of infants with CF identified by newborn screening. This includes the development of new diagnostic tools that permit the early detection of lung disease manifestations.
