Amy Ladd, MD
Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery (Hand Surgery) and, by courtesy, of Medicine (Immunology & Rheumatology) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Research Interests
1. The kinematics and forces associated with thumb carpometcarpal (CMC) function and pathology
2. The anatomy, microstructure, and immunofluorescent characteristics of the thumb CMC joint
3. Pathomechaniics of CMC arthritis: biomechanical wear, injury, genetic, and environmental causes

Professor of Medicine (Nephrology) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests We are continuing to grow a glomerulonephritis cohort study, including immunologic characterization. We have completed interventional studies of preeclampsia exploring the nitric oxide, endothelin system and effects on glomerular function and morphometry. We continue to recruit patients for treatment and observational studies of glomerular disease, including FSGS, membranous and particularly IgA nephropathy. We also are actively studying renal disease in systemic amyloidosis.
R. Elaine Lambert
Adjunct Clinical Professor, Medicine - Immunology & Rheumatology
Bio I began my career as a full-time faculty member at Stanford Healthcare in 1990 after over 3 years of rheumatology fellowship. Since 1996, I have worked in rheumatology private practice at Sports, Orthopedics and Rehabilitation Medicine Associates in Redwood City, CA while maintaining a volunteer position teaching house staff at Stanford Heathcare as Adjunct Clinical Professor of Medicine.
Professor of Radiology (General Radiology) and of Medicine (Biomedical Informatics Research) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am interested in the use of deep neural networks and other machine learning technologies to help radiologists detect disease and eliminate diagnostic errors. My laboratory is developing deep neural networks that detect and classify disease on medical images. We also develop natural language processing methods that use the narrative radiology report to create large annotated image training sets for supervised machine learning experiments.
