Professor of Pediatrics (Stem Cell Transplantation)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Genome Editing and Population Dynamics for Gene Therapy and Cancer Research
Associate Professor of Bioengineering
Bio We are a curiosity driven research group working in the field of physical biology. Our approach brings together experimental and theoretical techniques from soft-condensed matter physics, fluid dynamics, theory of computation and unconventional micro and nano-fabrication to open problems in biology: from organismal to cellular and molecular scale. We design and build precision instrumentation including droplet microfluidic tools to probe and perturb biological machines and their synthetic analogues. Along the way, we invent novel technologies in global health context with clinical applications in extreme resource poor settings.
Assistant Professor of Radiation Oncology (Radiation Physics)

Assistant Professor of Pediatrics (Cardiology) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The Priest lab seeks a better understanding of the genetics and pathogenesis of congenital heart disease using translational genomics, big-data, and vertebrate models of cardiac development.
Associate Professor of Medicine (Stanford Prevention Research Center)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Prochaska's research expertise centers on technology-mediated health behavior change interventions including targets of tobacco, physical activity, and dietary change. Working with Alaska Native and Latino communities, people with serious mental illness, alcohol and drug problems, or heart disease, and jobseekers and the unhoused, Dr. Prochaska’s research combines stage-tailored interventions with pharmacotherapy and utilizes interactive expert system interventions and social media.
Associate Professor of Pediatrics (Neonatology) at the Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Funded by NIH R01 grants:
1) Development and application of composite measure of NICU quality - Baby-MONITOR
2) High reliability, safety culture and caregiver resilience as modifiers of care quality
3) Modifiable racial/ethnic disparities in quality of care delivery
4) Effectiveness of regionalized care delivery systems for preterm newborns
Stephanie Pun, MD
Clinical Assistant Professor, Orthopaedic Surgery
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Pun specializes in the treatment of complex hip disorders with surgical hip preservation options for children, adolescents, and adults. Her goal is to enhance hip function in active individuals and to prevent the early development of hip osteoarthritis.
