Virginia and Daniel K. Ludwig Professor in Cancer Research and the Reed-Hodgson Professor in Human Biology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our laboratory studies Wnt signaling in development and disease. We found recently that Wnt proteins are unusual growth factors, because they are lipid-modified. We discovered that Wnt proteins promote the proliferation of stem cells of various origins. Current work is directed at understanding the function of the lipid on the Wnt, using Wnt proteins as factors the expand stem cells and on understanding Wnt signaling during repair and regeneration after tissue injury.
Resident in Otolaryngology (Head and Neck Surgery)
Bio Brian Nuyen studied General Biology and Music at Revelle College at University of California, San Diego (UCSD), where he was also a member of the UCSD Medical Scholars Program, a combined B.S./M.D program. At UCSD School of Medicine, Brian discovered his passion for otitis media and language/communication sciences, leading to a Division of Otolaryngology Research Fellowship at UCSD School of Medicine and subsequent Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) Student Medical Research Fellowship. During his time in medical school, Brian explored diversity health interests, focusing on minority health education and equality, including lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender health. He continued these interests as an otolaryngology-head and neck surgery resident at Stanford, as a founding member and social chair of the Stanford Graduate Medical Education Diversity Committee. He currently serves as Stanford Residency Program representative to the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery/Foundation (AAO-HNS/F).
Assistant Professor of Bioengineering and of Neurosurgery and, by courtesy, of Electrical Engineering
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our group explores neuroengineering and its application to both basic and clinical neuroscience. Our goal is to develop brain-machine interfaces as a platform technology for a variety of brain-related medical conditions including stroke and epilepsy.
