Shannon Wiltsey Stirman
Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences (Public Mental Health and Population Sciences) at the Palo Alto Veterans Affairs Health Care System
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The overarching goal of my program of research is to determine how to facilitate the high quality delivery of evidence-based psychosocial interventions (EBPs) in public sector mental health settings. Areas of emphasis include training and consultation, treatment fidelity and adaptation, and the identification of strategies that promote sustained implementation of EBPs. .
Jeffrey J. Wine
Benjamin Scott Crocker Professor of Human Biology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The goal is to understand how a defective ion channel leads to the human genetic disease cystic fibrosis. Studies of ion channels and ion transport involved in gland fluid transport. Methods include SSCP mutation detection and DNA sequencing, protein analysis, patch-clamp recording, ion-selective microelectrodes, electrophysiological analyses of transmembrane ion flows, isotopic metho
Clinical Associate Professor, Medicine - General Medical Disciplines
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My primary research interest is in studies and their evaluation intended to improve the quality of patient care particularly those related to cancer care, primary care, and the points of intersection between primary and specialty care. Currently, I am the Director and quantitative lead for the evaluation of the Cancer Transformation Initiative, a 5-year project to transform the quality of care for cancer patients seen and treated at the Stanford Cancer Institute.

Simone Angela Winkler
Physical Sci Res Assoc, Rad/Radiological Sciences Laboratory
Current Role at Stanford Research Associate
Professor of Computer Science, Emeritus
Bio Professor Winograd's focus is on human-computer interaction design and the design of technologies for development. He directs the teaching programs and HCI research in the Stanford Human-Computer Interaction Group, which recently celebrated it's 20th anniversary. He is also a founding faculty member of the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design at Stanford (the "d.school") and on the faculty of the Center on Democracy, Development, and the Rule of Law (CDDRL)
Winograd was a founding member and past president of Computer Professionals for Social Responsibility. He is on a number of journal editorial boards, including Human Computer Interaction, ACM Transactions on Computer Human Interaction, and Informatica. He has advised a number of companies started by his students, including Google. In 2011 he received the ACM SIGCHI Lifetime Research Award.
Professor of Medicine (General Medical Disciplines) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Bio Dr. Dean Winslow specializes in infectious diseases and hospital-based internal medicine. He has practiced medicine for more than 40 years. Dr. Winslow has a special interest in bedside teaching of medical students, residents and fellows.
Assistant Professor of Genetics and of Pathology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our laboratory uses genome-wide methods to uncover alterations that drive cancer progression and metastasis in genetically-engineered mouse models of human cancers. We combine cell-culture based mechanistic studies with our ability to alter pathways of interest during tumor progression in vivo to better understand each step of metastatic spread and to uncover the therapeutic vulnerabilities of advanced cancer cells.
