    Professor (Research) of Microbiology and Immunology

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests I'm interested in immune monitoring of T cell responses to chronic pathogens and cancer, and the correlation of T cell response signatures with disease protection.

  • AC Matin

    AC Matin

    Professor of Microbiology and Immunology

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests 1. Improvement of our newly discovered cancer prodrug regimen that permits noninvaisve visualization of drug activation. 2. Tracking tumors & cancer metastases using bacterial magnetite and newly developed single-cell tracking by MRI. 3. Molecular basis of bacterial planktonic and biofilm antibiotic resistance on Earth and under space microgravity -- development of new countermeasures; 4. Bioremediation.

  • Hugh McDevitt

    Hugh McDevitt

    Professor of Microbiology and Immunology and of Medicine, Emeritus

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests The structure of class II major histocompatibility complex molecules, their role in antigen presentation, and in the immune response in health and disease with emphasis on type 1 diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis; the role of lymphokines (tumor necrosis factor alpha, lymphotoxin) in autoimmunity.

  • Edward Mocarski

    Edward Mocarski

    Professor of Microbiology and Immunology, Emeritus

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interests focus on the biology and pathogenesis of cytomegalovirus (CMV), an opportunistic pathogen that causes significant disease worldwide. We developed global approaches and produced key insights into the areas of CMV gene regulation, DNA replication and packaging, maturation, impact on the host cell, disease pathogenesis, latency and reactivation, host cell signaling and chemokine system. These diverse findings address key aspects of the virus-host interaction.

  • Denise M. Monack

    Denise M. Monack

    Professor of Microbiology and Immunology

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests The primary focus of my research is to understand the genetic and molecular mechanisms of intracellular bacterial pathogenesis. We use several model systems to study complex host-pathogen interactions in the gut and in immune cells such as macrophages and dendritic cells. Ultimately we would like to understand how Salmonella persists within certain hosts for years in the face of a robust immune response.

    Current Role at Stanford 1. Perform complex (lab and/or field) experiments for a major portion of the research project.
    Maintain detailed records of experiments and outcomes
    2. Interpret and analyze results, often where few guidelines exist. Based on prior results,
    contribute to development of new research protocols and procedures or adaptation of existing
    protocols
    3. Make recommendations on plan design and/or research direction to principal investigator
    4. Work with health and safety department to ensure lab complies with regulations and all
    required trainings
    5. Participate in multidisciplinary teams across different faculties or schools
    6. Oversee supply and equipment budget under supervision of principal investigator or business
    manager
    7. Perform ongoing literature review to remain current with new procedures and related research;
    present findings for lab work group
    8. Contribute substantively to the preparation of papers for publication, especially in the results
    section.
    9. May contribute to publication of findings and present ongoing work and findings to colleagues
    at academic conferences
    10. Supervise (either formally or informally) staff or students as needed, including oversight and
    instruction on techniques, as well as consultation on project work. Serve as technical resource
    for other research staff
    11. Perform general lab maintenance as needed; maintain lab stock, manage chemical inventory
    and safety records, and provide general lab support as needed. May assist with purchasing
    laboratory equipment
