Clinical Associate Professor, Medicine - General Medical Disciplines
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am the Director and qualitative 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. Additionally, I am involved in and have great interest 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.
Professor of Neurology and of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Winkelmann Lab has Postdoc and phd openings!
Our goal is to investigate the genetic architecture of neurological complex genetic diseases. We focus on restless legs syndrome (RLS) and want to understand how the functional organization of neuronal sensor motor circuits is altered in RLS patients leading to disease manifestation. We aim to identify genetic and environmental factors modifying disease susceptibility; understand the mode of action of current drugs as well as establishing personalized treatment options in the future.
Marilyn Winkleby, PhD, MPH
Professor (Research) of Medicine (Stanford Prevention Research Center), Emerita
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Cardiovascular disease epidemiology, health of socioeconomically disadvantaged and ethnic minority populations, social determinants of health, community-based intervention research, youth advocacy and mentorship, promoting diversity in health professions
Simone Angela Winkler
Postdoctoral Research fellow, Radiological Sciences Laboratory
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am a biomedical engineer working in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with RF/microwave and mechatronics background. I am specifically interested in studying three primary topics: (1) hardware development for MR engineering applications, (2) multi-physics theoretical and computational modeling of MRI and other biomedical processes, and (3) hardware-/ and RF development for cellular and molecular imaging modalities.
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.
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.
