Current Research and Scholarly Interests In the coming years, I plan to further determine the genetic and immunological basis of diseases with autoimmunity or immune dysregulation in children. I believe that much can still be learned from the in depth mechanistic studies of pediatric autoimmune diseases. Genomic analysis of the patients' samples has become possible which may provide a rapid indication of altered target molecules. I plan to implement robust functional studies to define the consequences of these genetic abnormalities and bridge them to the patient's clinical phenotype.
Understanding functional consequences of gene mutations in single case/family first and then validating the molecular and cellular defects in other patients with similar phenotypes, will anticipate and complement cellular and gene therapy strategies.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests Prevention of osteoporosis begins in childhood and adolescence by measures that maximize acquistion of bone mineral during the critical adolescent years. Body mass, calcium nutriture, physical activity, growth and sex steroid hormones, and genetic factors are all thought to be important determinants of bone mass although the relative contribution of each remains controversial.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests Pediatric systemic lupus erythematosus;
Proteomics and autoantigen microarray technology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Bannett seeks to use data-driven methods to develop reliable quality measures for management of children with developmental and behavioral (DB) conditions in community-based primary care. Current observational studies use multi-level analysis of electronic health record data and clinician interviews. Dr. Bannett plans to use natural language processing to accurately assess quality of care, with the ultimate goal of improving health care delivery for children with DB conditions.

Bio Donald Barr is a physician and is Associate Professor of Sociology and Human Biology, and is the founder and director of Stanford’s undergraduate curriculum in health policy. His research has included health policy and health care reform in the former Soviet Union and the effect of the organizational structure of the U.S. medical care delivery system on the quality of primary care. More recently he has begun to study cultural and linguistic barriers to health care access for low-income patients, and factors associated with higher rates of attrition from pre-medical studies among minority students at Stanford and other universities. His book, Introduction to U.S. Health Policy: The Organization, Financing, and Delivery of Health Care in America, was recently published by Pearson Education. In June 2003 Dr. Barr was awarded the Lloyd W. Dinkelspiel Award for Distinctive Contribution to Undergraduate Education at Stanford University. This conversation focused on writing for medicine and social science.
