John S. Tamaresis, PhD, MS
Biostatistician, Biomedical Data Science
Bio Dr. Tamaresis joined the Stanford University School of Medicine in Summer 2012. He earned the Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from the University of California, Davis and received the M.S. in Statistics from the California State University, East Bay. He has conducted research in computational biology as a postdoctoral scholar at the University of California, Merced and as a biostatistician at the University of California, San Francisco.
As a statistician, Dr. Tamaresis has developed and validated a highly accurate statistical biomarker classifier for gynecologic disease by applying multivariate techniques to a large genomic data set. His statistical consultations have produced data analyses for published research studies and analysis plans for novel research proposals in grant applications. As an applied mathematician, Dr. Tamaresis has created computational biology models and devised numerical methods for their solution. He devised a probabilistic model to study how the number of binding sites on a novel therapeutic molecule affected contact time with cancer cells to advise medical researchers about its design. For his doctoral dissertation, he created and analyzed the first mathematical system model for a mechanosensory network in vascular endothelial cells to investigate the initial stage of atherosclerotic disease.

Manjula Kurella Tamura
Associate Professor of Medicine (Nephrology) at the Palo Alto Veterans Affairs Health Care System
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am a clinical and health services investigator whose primary interest is in improving the quality of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) care among older adults. My previous and current work aims to describe outcomes (especially geriatric outcomes) in older patients and to compare the effectiveness of different ESRD management strategies on these outcomes.
Clinical Assistant Professor, Pathology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interest is in the use of molecular methods to understand and characterize hematopoietic neoplasms. My current work focuses on the use of PCR-based assays for clonal rearrangements in the immunoglobulin heavy chain gene (IGH) and T-cell receptor gene (TCR) for the diagnosis of mature T-cell lymphomas.
Jane C. Tan
Associate Professor of Medicine (Nephrology) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research relates to issues pertaining to clinical kidney transplantation. We have ongoing studies on the following topics.
1. Renal senescence and kidney transplant, and chronic allograft nephropathy.
2. Living donor safety and response to uninephrectomy.
3. Biomarkers for post-transplant monitoring.
