Bio Dr. Fairchild specializes in the diagnosis, evaluation and management of rheumatologic diseases. He has a particular interest in musculoskeletal ultrasound and heads the Division of Immunology and Rheumatology's Diagnostic and Interventional Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Clinic. Dr. Fairchild, received his Ph.D. from Georgetown University, and his M.D. from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. He completed internship and residency in the Department of Medicine at Stanford University. He continued on at Stanford, completing his fellowship in rheumatology and subsequently joined the faculty of the Division of Immunology and Rheumatology. He trained in rheumatologic musculoskeletal ultrasound through the USSONAR program and is certified in this technique through the American College of Rheumatology (RhMSUS certification).
Alice C. Fan
Assistant Professor of Medicine (Oncology) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Fan is a physician scientist who studies how turning off oncogenes (cancer genes) can cause tumor regression in preclinical and clinical translational studies. Based on her findings, she has initiated clinical trials studying how targeted therapies affect cancer signals in kidney cancer and low grade lymphoma. In the laboratory, she uses new nanotechnology strategies for tumor diagnosis and treatment to define biomarkers for personalized therapy.
Clinical Instructor, Medicine - Vaden Health Center

C. Garrison Fathman
Professor of Medicine (Immunology and Rheumatology), Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My lab of molecular and cellular immunology is interested in research in the general field of T cell activation and autoimmunity. We have identified and characterized a gene (GRAIL) that seems to control regulatory T cell (Treg) responsiveness by inhibiting the Treg IL-2 receptor desensitization. We have characterized a gene (Deaf1) that plays a major role in peripheral tolerance in T1D. Using PBC gene expression, we have provisionally identified a signature of risk and progression in T1D.
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Cardiovascular Medicine
Bio I have begun my career in the cardiovascular genetics since 2002, when I was working closely with the local genetic counselors and cardiologists. I have pursued the career of characterizing cardiometabolic diseases genes by joining my current mentors at Stanford cardiovascular medicine, who co-lead international consortium on Genome-Wide Association Studies (GWAS) of insulin resistance (GENESIS) as the underlying risk factor of type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome. Currently, I am enthusiastic to pursue my career in the functional genomics by the deep phenotyping approach through multi-OMICs and longitudinal profiling. In particular, I am eager to harness these technologies to unravel the underlying cause of diabetes and the development of insulin resistance in presence or absence (lipodystrophy) of obesity.
