Bio The management of inflammatory bowel disease has changed dramatically especially over the past 5-10 years, with the introduction of biologic and small molecule therapies and new goals of treatment, with an emphasis on healing the bowel. My career goal since my graduation from IBD fellowship in 2012 has been to improve the outcomes and quality of life of patients with inflammatory bowel disease. In line with these goals, my research has focused investigating new noninvasive diagnostic test, finding factors early in the disease course that might predict a more aggressive disease course and need for different therapies, and investigating new promising effective medications with less side effects.
Saad A. Khan, MD
Assistant Professor of Medicine (Oncology) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Bio Saad A. Khan, MD is a medical oncologist focused on the treatment of head and neck, thyroid and lung cancers. His research interests include therapeutic clinical trials as well as mechanisms of reducing toxicities that patients experience. His research activities include ongoing clinical trials of targeted and immune therapy in aggressive thyroid malignancies. He is a member of the NRG Head and Neck Committee, the ECOG Head and Neck Core and Thoracic Committees and the National Cancer Institute’s Head and Neck Steering Committee Rare Tumor Task Force.
When not in clinic or the hospital he enjoys spending time with his family and 3 children, hiking and sitting on the beach.

Seung K. Kim M.D., Ph.D.
Professor of Developmental Biology and, by courtesy, of Medicine (Endocrinology)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests We study the development of pancreatic islet cells using molecular, embryologic and genetic methods in several model systems, including mice, pigs, human pancreas, embryonic stem cells, and Drosophila. Our work suggests that critical factors required for islet development are also needed to maintain essential functions of the mature islet. These approaches have informed efforts to generate replacement islets from renewable sources for diabetes.
Associate Professor of Medicine (Endocrinology) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests We are interested in studying the pathophysiological processes that contribute to glucose intolerance and type 2 diabetes mellitus. My current research focuses on characterizing pancreatic beta-cell function in populations with significant insulin resistance and vulnerability to developing diabetes: individuals with schizophrenia, morbid obesity, and history of gestational diabetes.
W. Ray Kim, MD
Professor of Medicine (Gastroenterology and Hepatology) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Bio Chronic liver disease is one of the most common causes of premature death in Americans. My career goal is to improve the outcome of individuals with chronic liver disease by identifying the optimal means for diagnosis, monitoring, treatment and prevention. The path I have chosen to achieve this goal is through engagement in clinical epidemiology and patient-oriented, effectiveness research.
Since the development of the MELD score which recognizes the importance of renal function in the prognosis of patients with end stage liver disease, one of the areas that we have had intense interest has been acute and chronic renal injury in patients undergoing liver transplantation. Liver transplantation represents a unique opportunity for research, because of the potential for reversal of the renal injury as well as access to biological materials.
