Current Research and Scholarly Interests Inadequate removal of uremic solutes contributes to widespread illness in the more than 350,000 Americans maintained on hemodialysis. But we know remarkably little about these solutes. Dr. Meyer's research efforts are focused on identifying which uremic solutes are toxic, how these solutes are made, and how their production could be decreased or their removal could be increased. We should be able to improve treatment if we knew more about what we are trying to remove.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests CELLULAR INFORMATION PROCESSING The main problem in signal transduction is to understand how different receptor-stimuli specifically control diverse cell functions. We are using automated microscopy, live-cell fluorescent biosensors and perturbations of predicted signaling proteins to systematically dissect signaling networks. This allows us to identify signaling modules and to elucidate and ultimately model the flow of cellular information.
Professor of Pathology (Research)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Lymphocyte/endothelial cell adhesion mechanisms involved in lymphocyte migration to sites of inflammation; regulation of expression of endothelial cell adhesion molecules.
Mitchell Miglis, MD
Clinical Assistant Professor, Neurology & Neurological Sciences
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Sleep disorders in patients with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome
Emmanuel Mignot, MD, PhD
Craig Reynolds Professor of Sleep Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The research focus of the laboratory is the study of sleep and sleep disorders such as narcolepsy and Kleine Levin syndrome. We also study the neurobiological and genetic basis of the EEG and develop new tools to study sleep using nocturnal polysomnography. Approaches mostly involve human genetic studies (GWAS, sequencing), EEG signal analysis, and immunology (as narcolepsy is an autoimmune disease of the brain).
Frederick Mihm, M.D.
Professor of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine (ICU) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Mihm’s two areas of research interest involve cardiorespiratory monitoring techniques and applications and the perioperative management of patients with pheochromocytoma.
Karthik Mikkineni MD
Clinical Assistant Professor, Surgery - Vascular Surgery
Bio Dr. Mikkineni is a vascular surgeon who specializes in vascular disease including critical limb ischemia and limb salvage, abdominal and thoracic aortic aneurysms. Specific areas of interest include: endovascular procedures for peripheral vascular disease, management of carotid disease, thoracic outlet syndrome, mesenteric ischemia.
Additional areas of interest encompass hemodialysis access and venous disorders such as varicose veins. His special interest include fenestrated and branched endografts in management of aortic and thoracic aneurysms, and aortic disease.
Dr. Mikkineni?s research topics include abdominal aortic aneurysm and vascular conduits for bypass. He has published on the surgical treatment of aortic aneurysms and the use of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) treatment of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).
David Miklos, M.D., Ph.D.
Associate Professor of Medicine (Blood and Marrow Transplantation) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Investigates the targets of immune responses after human allogeneic stem cell transplantation. BMT patients develop antibodies against minor histocompatibility antigens (mHA) that are associated with chronic graft-v-host disease (cGVHD) and disease remission. Current projects: investigate Ab anti-tumor mechanism, high-throughput serologic identification of novel mHA in the development of GVHD and prevention of disease relapse, and clinical trials of B cell therapeutics for cGVHD.
