  • Shoshana Levy

    Shoshana Levy

    Professor (Research) of Medicine (Oncology)

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our research focuses on the mechanism of action of tetraspanins, an evolutionary conserved, widely expressed multi-gene family. We study a prototype, CD81, a molecule implicated in the pathogenesis of two major human diseases: hepatitis C virus (HCV) and malaria.

  • David B. Lewis

    David B. Lewis

    Professor of Pediatrics (Immunology) at the Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests My laboratory is focused on defining cellular and molecular mechanisms that limit T cell responses to vaccines and pathogens during normal early postnatal development and in cases of inherited genetic immunodeficiencies. We are also determinomg how these limitations in immunity can be overcome by using novel approaches for vaccine adjuvants for influenza vaccine and by using catalytically inactive Cas proteins for inducing endogenous gene expression.

  • Gordon┬áLi, MD

    Gordon Li, MD

    Professor of Neurosurgery and, by courtesy, of Neurology and of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery (OHNS) at the Stanford University Medical Center

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests 1.) My laboratory studies the biology of brain tumors with the goal of developing novel therapeutics for the treatment of malignant brain tumors and translating that research into clinical trials.
    2.) My clinical interests include improving surgical techniques for brain tumor surgery, immunotherapy for the treatment of glioblastoma, and novel uses for stereotactic radiosurgery.

  • Jin Billy Li

    Jin Billy Li

    Associate Professor of Genetics

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests The Li Lab is primarily interested in RNA editing mediated by ADAR enzymes. We co-discovered that the major function of RNA editing is to label endogenous dsRNAs as "self" to avoid being recognized as "non-self" by MDA5, a host innate immune dsRNA sensor, leading us to pursue therapeutic applications in cancer, autoimmune diseases, and viral infection. The other major direction of the lab is to develop technologies to harness endogenous ADAR enzymes for site-specific transcriptome engineering.

  • Ruijiang Li

    Ruijiang Li

    Assistant Professor (Research) of Radiation Oncology (Radiation Physics)

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests My lab's research is focused on the development of imaging and molecular biomarkers to improve early detection, diagnosis, prognostication, and prediction of therapy response in cancer. Our ultimate goal is to translate these biomarkers into clinical practice to guide optimal management and therapeutic decisions for precision cancer medicine.

  • Joseph C. Liao

    Joseph C. Liao

    Associate Professor of Urology

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests My laboratory is engaged in translational research to develop new in vitro and in vivo diagnostic tools for diseases of the urinary tract based on micro- and nanotechnology. We are developing an integrated biosensor platform optimized for point-of-care urinary diagnostics, particularly for urinary tract infections and bladder cancer. We are also developing in vivo imaging tools for applications in image-guided surgery.

  • Michael Link

    Michael Link

    Lydia J. Lee Professor in Pediatric Cancer

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Hematology/Oncology, treatment of sarcomas of bone and soft tissue, biology of acute lymphoblastic leukemias, treatment of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and Hodgkin's disease.

  • Eleni Linos, MD, MPH, DrPH

    Eleni Linos, MD, MPH, DrPH

    Professor of Dermatology and, by courtesy, of Epidemiology and Population Health at the Stanford University Medical Center

    Bio Eleni Linos MD, MPH, DrPH, is Professor of Dermatology and Epidemiology at Stanford University.

    Her current work is focused on understanding the impact of novel coronavirus COVID-19 on the health and wellbeing of communities.

    Dr. Linos' work also focuses on public health, cancer prevention and the care of older adults. Dr. Linos is dually trained in epidemiology and dermatology and is the principal investigator of several NIH funded studies aimed at improving the lives of patients. She received her medical degree from Cambridge and Oxford universities in the UK, then trained in epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health and completed her residency at Stanford.

  • Joseph (Joe) Lipsick

    Joseph (Joe) Lipsick

    Professor of Pathology, of Genetics and, by courtesy, of Biology

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Function and evolution of the Myb oncogene family; function and evolution of E2F transcriptional regulators and RB tumor suppressors; epigenetic regulation of chromatin and chromosomes; cancer genetics.
