Ian Carroll, MD, MS
Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine (Adult Pain) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests We are committed to promoting an understanding of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leaks, and ensuring that all patients who are suffering from cerebrospinal fluid leaks receive appropriate diagnosis and treatment of this devastating, chronic, and fixable condition. We believe this can be best accomplished in a multidisciplinary setting involving expertise in radiology, neurology, and interventional pain medicine.
Chris Cartwright, MD
Professor of Medicine (Gastroenterology and Hepatology), Emerita
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Molecular mechanisms of intestinal cell growth control; function and regulation of the Src family of tyrosine kinases in normal cells, and their deregulation in cancer cells.
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Stanford Cancer Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am interested in translational cancer research and bioinformatics, with a focus on using cancer genomics to inform more personalized treatment strategies for cancer patients. My lab uses cell free DNA (cfDNA), which is accessible via the circulation, as a non-invasive biomarker to detect and characterize how the genetic landscape of cancer patient?s tumors change over time. I am particularly interested in the mechanisms underlying acquired resistance to genotype-targeted therapies.
Anne Lynn S. Chang, MD
Associate Professor of Dermatology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I have two main research interests:
1) to better understand and treat patients with aggressive basal cell carcinomas
2) to better understand the genetic and epigenetic mechanisms of healthy human skin aging and to translate these insights into better care of skin diseases enriched in older patients particularly skin cancer and rosacea
Sue and Bob McCollum Professor
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I specialize in the treatment of gastrointestinal malignancies. I am interested in developing stereotactic body radiotherapy for tumors of the liver, both primary and metastatic. I am interested in developing functional imaging as a means of determining treatment response with radiation. I am also interested in developing image-guided radiotherapy to improve radiation delivery for GI cancers to reduce toxicity and improve disease outcome.
Howard Y. Chang, MD, PhD
Virginia and D. K. Ludwig Professor of Cancer Genomics and of Genetics
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our research is focused on how the activities of hundreds or even thousands of genes (gene parties) are coordinated to achieve biological meaning. We have pioneered methods to predict, dissect, and control large-scale gene regulatory programs; these methods have provided insights into human development, cancer, and aging.
James K. Chen
Professor of Chemical and Systems Biology and of Developmental Biology and, by courtesy, of Chemistry
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our laboratory combines synthetic chemistry and developmental biology to investigate the molecular events that regulate embryonic patterning, tissue regeneration, and tumorigenesis. We are currently using genetic and small-molecule approaches to study the molecular mechanisms of Hedgehog signaling, and we are developing chemical technologies to perturb and observe the genetic programs that underlie vertebrate development.
