James D. Brooks
Keith and Jan Hurlbut Professor in the Stanford University School of Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests We use genomic approaches to identify disease biomarkers. We are most interested in translating biomarkers into clinical practice in urological diseases with a particular focus in cancer.
Patrick O. Brown
Professor of Biochemistry
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Brown's research group uses diverse experimental and computational methods to investigate the logic and mechanisms that control a genome's expression program. The Brown laboratory is systematically characterizing the genetic scripts that control the expression of our genes, in normal development and physiology and in diseases like cancer, with a particular focus on post-transcriptional regulation. The Brown lab also develops strategies and assays for early detection and diagnosis of cancer.
Professor of Medicine (Oncology) and of Biochemistry
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our laboratory focuses on understanding how cells respond to DNA damage. Our research currently involves areas that interact with each other: repair of radiation damage, and transcriptional responses to DNA damage.
Professor of Pediatrics (Hematology/Oncology) at the Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Hematology/Oncology, Phase I drug studies for childhood cancer, overcoming multidrug resistance in leukemia and solid tumors, biology and treatment of acute nonlymphocytic leukemia, early detection of central nervous system leukemia by measuring growth, factor binding proteins.
Max H. Stein Professor and Professor of Statistics and of Health Research and Policy
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Theories of inference applied to biostatistical data;, the bootstrap method.
Associate Professor of Biochemistry
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our lab engineers proteins and small-molecule drugs at atomic resolution through a combination of structural calculations and combinatorial library synthesis. Our goal is to elucidate predictive principles by which novel shapes and catalytic properties can be conferred accurately on designed polypeptides.
John A. Overdeck Professor and Professor of Health Research and Policy
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Flexible statistical modelling, datamining, bioinformatics, and statistical computing.
Senior Associate Dean, Graduate Education and Postdoctoral Affairs and Professor of Biochemistry and, by courtesy, of Chemistry and of Chemical Engineering
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our research is aimed at understanding the chemical and physical behavior underlying biological macromolecules and systems, as these behaviors define the capabilities and limitations of biology. Toward this end we study folding and catalysis by RNA, as well as catalysis by protein enzymes.
Stefanie S. Jeffrey, MD
John and Marva Warnock Professor
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Jeffrey was team leader of the multidisciplinary team from the School of Medicine, School of Engineering, and Genome Technology Center that invented the MagSweeper automated technology to isolate live circulating tumor cells (CTCs) from cancer patient blood for single cell analysis. Her lab characterizes CTCs in different cancers, investigating CTC profiles and mutations as potential companion diagnostics to define individual patient response to newer biologically-based cancer therapies.
Teri A Longacre
Professor of Pathology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Gynecological, breast and gastrointestinal pathology with major emphasis on ovarian cancer and ovarian tumors of low malignant potential. Pathology of familial and hereditary breast-ovarian-GI cancer.
