Associate Professor of Medicine (Endocrinology) and, by courtesy, of Health Research and Policy (Epidemiology) at the Palo Alto Veterans Affairs Health Care System
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am a clinical scientist (PhD epidemiology), endocrinologist, and CMO at VAPA Cooperative Studies Program Coordinating Center . My group does pattern and prediction mapping along the life-course of interventions/outcomes and how healthcare system can positively impact health longitudinally. We use novel molecular epi, 'big' data like EHRs with advanced new designs/methods/technologies. These interests cut across multiple complex chronic diseases, aging, & critical lifespan stages.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests I have been retired since 2008 and no longer conduct research
Professor of Medicine (Endocrinology) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. McLaughlin conducts a number of clinical research studies related to obesity, insulin resistance, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. Current studies include: 1) the impact of macronutrient composition on weight loss and cardiocascular risk (diabetic and nondiabetic patients); 2) comparison of weight loss and cardiovascular risk reduction in diabetic patients treated with different classes of antihyperglycemic drugs; 3) the role of the adipocyte in modulating insulin resistance
Clinical Professor, Medicine - Endocrinology, Gerontology, & Metabolism
Bio Dr. Sellmeyer is an internationally recognized expert in Metabolic Bone Disease. She is a renowned clinician who joined the Stanford faculty in 2018 as a Professor of Medicine. She has been recognized for her clinical excellence with induction into the Miller Coulson Academy of Clinical Excellence while she was at Johns Hopkins. In addition to her clinical expertise, Dr. Sellmeyer maintains a research program that centers on the effect of nutrition and environmental factors on skeletal metabolism which she has investigated through both smaller CRC-based trials and large multi-center trials. Studies she has conducted have investigated the role of dietary sodium chloride, source of dietary protein (animal, vegetable, dairy, soy), role of dietary potassium and alkaline potassium salts, targeted thoracic exercises on kyphosis, whether structured exercise can prevent bone loss in premenopausal women treated for breast cancer, and studies validating nutritional assessment questionnaires. Her expertise as a clinical researcher has enabled development of a multi-disciplinary translational research team including basic scientists in the orthopedic department, junior faculty members with K grant funding, and basic scientists in the endocrine division to develop translational projects studying the effects of osteoporosis medications on basic elements of skeletal biology utilizing bone biopsies from treated individuals as well as clinical trials of novel therapies for rare bone disorders. Dr. Sellmeyer also is a esteemed educator, having received multiple teaching awards.

Clinical Associate Professor, Medicine - Endocrinology, Gerontology, & Metabolism
Bio I am an endocrinologist with particular interests in reproductive and bone health.
I enjoy treating patients with menstrual disorders, menopause, fractures, osteoporosis, parathyroid imbalance, and calcium imbalance.
As a certified menopause practitioner (North American Menopause Society), I help women fine-tune their health at the mid-life transition. Some women transition through menopause with ease, while others experience challenging symptoms like hot flashes, slowed metabolism, and mood changes. This transition period provides a good opportunity to create a "game plan" for preserving future health. It also marks the beginning of natural bone loss, leaving one more susceptible to fragility fractures.
I provide individualized treatment plans for bone health to men and women of all ages, including for those with specific challenges such as chronic steroid use. As a certified clinical densitometrist (International Society for Clinical Densitometry), I personally review all my patients' bone density scan images. Thus, please bring any non-Stanford bone density scan images to your appointment with me.
Appointments with me are available on Stanford's main campus (300 Pastuer Drive) and at the Stanford Medicine Outpatient Center (450 Broadway, Redwood City).

Current Research and Scholarly Interests Type 2 diabetes, obesity, insulin resistance
Associate Professor of Medicine (Endocrinology)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My laboratory focuses on the pathways that regulate the differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells into the osteoblast and adipocyte lineages. We are also studying the role of osteoblasts in the hematopoietic and cancer niches in the bone marrow microenvironment.
