Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Infectious Diseases
Bio I have a background in the execution of molecular biology research as a former laboratory technician for 5 years during and following my undergraduate degree in molecular, cellular, and developmental biology. I also have a background in epidemiology and statistics through my MPH at UC Berkeley during which time I mastered the application of meta-analysis and systematic review techniques to infectious diseases topics, in particular in my masters thesis on HIV directly observed therapy. In addition, my years at Stanford as an internal medicine resident, infectious diseases fellow, and immunocompromised infectious diseases fellow have further developed my desire to address important translational questions that will improve the clinical outcomes of the patients that I care for on the stem cell transplant service. I hope to find therapies that might safely and effectively supplement and even take the place of antibiotics for prophylaxis and treatment of GVHD and infectious complications.
Assistant Professor of Medicine (Infectious Diseases) and, by courtesy, of Health Research and Policy (Epidemiology)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our laboratory aims to develop and test innovative approaches to the diagnosis, treatment and control of infectious diseases in resource-limited settings. We draw upon multiple fields including mathematical modeling, microbial genetics, field epidemiology, statistical inference and biodesign to work on challenging problems in infectious diseases, with an emphasis on tuberculosis and tropical diseases.
Associate Professor of Pathology and of Medicine (Infectious Diseases) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests His research interests include (1) development, assessment, and improvement of novel infectious diseases diagnostics, (2) enhancing the quality of C. difficile diagnostic results, and (3) characterization of M. tuberculosis virulence determinants.
Brian Blackburn, MD
Clinical Associate Professor, Medicine - Infectious Diseases
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My interests include parasitology and global health; I've investigated cryptosporidium and angiostrongylus outbreaks; schistosoma/strongyloides seroprevalence in refugees, and the distribution and impact of ITNs for malaria and filariasis prevention in Nigeria and India. I have done clinical and programmatic work at teaching hospitals in Liberia and Bangladesh and have opportunities for research in Bangladesh and Kenya, in collaboration with ICDDR,B and CDC, Kenya
Associate Professor of Medicine (Infectious Diseases)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The major goal of our research is to gain insight into the prevention and control of HIV and other viral pathogens by studying the interplay between the virus and the host immune response. We investigate the role of various arms of the immune response, but with a particular focus on NK cells. We hope to gain additional insights into control of infectious diseases by studying how pregnancy modulates immune responses.
Assistant Professor of Medicine (Infectious Diseases) and of Microbiology and Immunology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our lab studies how immune responses are regulated within inflamed or infected tissues. We welcome research students with interests in immunology, structural biology, and microbiology.
