Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Infectious Diseases
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The goal of my research is to better understand virus-host protein interactions, and translate this knowledge into the development of novel, broad-spectrum, antiviral drugs
Clinical Associate Professor, Medicine - Gastroenterology & Hepatology
Bio Dr Kumari’s clinical interests lie in taking care of patients with Hepatitis C , cirrhosis and complications, liver cancer and management of post transplant patients. Her research interests are doing Translational research in Portal Hypertension and its complications.
Professor of Medicine (Oncology) and of Radiology (Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Kummar’s research interests focus on developing novel therapies for cancer. She specializes in conducting pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic driven first-in-human trials tailored to make early, informed decisions regarding the suitability of novel molecular agents for further clinical investigation. Her studies integrate genomics and laboratory correlates into early phase trials. She is interested in alternate trial designs to facilitate rational drug selection based on human data and help expedite drug development timelines. She has published numerous articles in medical journals and serves on a number of national and international scientific committees.
Assistant Professor of Genetics and of Computer Science
Current Research and Scholarly Interests We develop statistical and machine learning frameworks to learn predictive, dynamic and causal models of gene regulation from heterogeneous functional genomics data.
Clinical Assistant Professor, Pathology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My main interest is in understanding the biology of human neoplasms, using traditional histopathology, molecular genetic techniques, and other modalities. In particular, I am interested in soft tissue and genitourinary neoplasms, especially prostate cancer.
I am also interested in the classification and nomenclature of neoplasms and in practical research that helps us refine these, using a variety of techniques but still principally guided by histopathology.
I also work on developing next generation sequencing-based tests for genotyping tumors and in expanding the scope of this testing with the goal of identifying patients eligible for novel targeting therapies.
Pamela L. Kunz
Associate Professor of Medicine (Oncology) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Bio Dr. Kunz specializes in the treatment of gastrointestinal malignancies with an expertise in the care of patients with neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). She has developed broad investigative programs in the field of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs), encompassing clinical trials, population sciences, and translational correlates. Stanford has a robust referral base for neuroendocrine tumors and has demonstrated successful accrual to clinical trials in this rare disease. She has been involved with the design, development and conduct of Phase I, II, and III clinical trials in this field. She holds a number of leadership positions in the field including Vice Chair of the Neuroendocrine Tumor Taskforce of the National Cancer institute and member of the NANETS Board of Directors. She also serves on the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) Neuroendocrine Tumors Guidelines Panel and the NET Working Group of the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) and is the founding Director of the Stanford Neuroendocrine Tumor Program, established in 2015.
