Professor of Biomedical Data Science and of Statistics
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Statistical models and reasoning are key to our understanding of the genetic basis of human traits. Modern high-throughput technology presents us with new opportunities and challenges. We develop statistical approaches for high dimensional data in the attempt of improving our understanding of the molecular basis of health related traits.
Professor of Pediatrics (Hematology/Oncology) and of Genetics
Current Research and Scholarly Interests We investigate the mechanisms by which normal cells become tumor cells, and we combine genetics, genomics, and proteomics approaches to investigate the differences between the proliferative response in response to injury and the hyperproliferative phenotype of cancer cells and to identify novel therapeutic targets in cancer cells.
Kathleen M. Sakamoto
Shelagh Galligan Professor in the School of Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research focuses on the molecular pathways that regulate normal and aberrant blood cell development, including acute leukemia and bone marrow failure syndromes. We are also studying novel drugs for treatment of cancer.
Assistant Professor of Biochemistry and of Biomedical Data Science
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Circular RNA regulation and function; computational and experimental approaches
Peter Luke Santa Maria
Assistant Professor of Otolaryngology-HNS (Otology and Neurotology) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Tympanic membrane regeneration - novel treatment for healing chronic tympanic membrane perforations. Currently partnering with Astellas pharmaceuticals for a clinical trial.
Novel treatments for biofilms in chronic suppurative otitis media using a unique rodent model created in our lab.
Novel treatments for wound healing in intra oral wounds with potential applications to prevent post tonsillectomy wound healing.
Medical device for maintaining perioperative normothermia
Kavita Sarin, MD, PhD
Assistant Professor of Dermatology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research encompasses two main areas: 1) Using next-generation RNA, whole genome, and exome sequencing, we are investigating the genetic alterations involved in skin cancer progression, response to therapy, and other clinical outcomes and 2) We are developing and implementing genome-wide genetic risk prediction assessments for skin cancer into clinical use and studying the impact of this information on patient care.
Professor of Microbiology and Immunology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our laboratory studies virus-host interactions with an emphasis microRNA-mediated gene regulation and on translational control. The mechanism by which a liver-specific microRNA regulates hepatitis C virus genome replication is under intense scrutiny. In addition, the mechanism of internal ribosome entry in certain cellular and viral mRNAs and its biological role in growth and development is being investigated.
Professor of Medicine (Infectious Diseases), Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Structure-function analysis of bacterial adhesion proteins and toxins; design and synthesis of synthetic antigens; immunobiology of human papillomaviruses
