Julie M. Yabu
Assistant Professor of Medicine (Nephrology) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interests are in immune monitoring in kidney transplant patients and in developing new diagnostics. I am interested in translational studies to determine the immunological mechanisms underlying kidney transplant rejection and alloantibody production and to identify novel biomarkers to monitor the immune system in kidney transplant patients. I am also interested in designing novel protocols for desensitization and ABO incompatible kidney transplantation.
Phillip C. Yang, MD
Associate Professor of Medicine (Cardiovascular Medicine) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Yang's research focuses on comprehensive evaluation of myocardial injury and restoration using novel molecular and cellular MRI techniques. By combining the chemical sensitivity of nuclear magnetic resonance with high spatial and temporal resolution, integrated imaging of a wide range of regenerative processes in the cardiovascular system is possible. This innovative approach enables in vivo imaging of stem cell biology and their effects on the myocardium. The novel MRI techniques are employed to investigate a broad spectrum of cardiovascular stem cells derived from human pluripotent and adult stem cells. Dr. Yang's research has been supported by the National Institutes of Health, American Heart Association, California Institute of Regenerative Medicine, Stanford Cardiovascular Institute, and private organizations.
Instructor, Medicine - General Medical Disciplines
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Veronica Yank, MD, is a general internal medicine physician and researcher in the Division of General Medical Disciplines at Stanford and the Center of Innovation to Implementation at the VA Palo Alto Health Care System. Her research focuses on health services research using mixed methods?how to optimize care of chronic conditions commonly treated in primary care settings (e.g., obesity, pre-diabetes and diabetes, chronic kidney disease, hypertension, depression). She has expertise in effective behavior change strategies among patients (self-management, patient activation), their family members, and health professionals, the adaptation of information technology and marketing approaches to improve chronic disease management, and research on the strength of evidence supporting medical practice, sources of bias that might distort the evidence, and approaches to closing the gap between evidence and practice.

Alan Yeung, MD
The Li Ka Shing Professor in Cardiology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Coronary artery disease is the leading cause of death in men and women in the United States. Our group is interested in studying both the early and late phases of atherosclerosis so that we can better develop prevention and treatment strategies.
