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.
Assistant Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery and of Bioengineering
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our research seeks to understand how microenvironmental cues regulate stem cell fate, and to develop novel biomaterials and stem cell-based therapeutics for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. Our work spans from fundamental science, technology development, to translational research.We are particularly interested in developing better therapies for treating musculoskeletal diseases, cardiovascular diseases and cancer.
Associate Professor of Surgery (General Surgery) at the Palo Alto Veterans Affairs Health Care System
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our laboratory studies the role of cellular stress pathways in the response to injury, particularly wound healing and fracture healing.
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.
Samuel Yang, MD, FACEP
Associate Professor of Surgery (Emergency Medicine) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Yang's research is focused on bridging the translational gap at the interface of molecular biology, engineering, and acute care medicine. The investigative interest of the Yang lab falls within the general theme of developing advanced molecular diagnostic technologies for acute care medicine and is divided into 2 areas: 1) Integrating novel molecular, sensor, and microfluidic technologies into high-content diagnostic system for broad-range pathogen detection and characterization, and 2) discovering epigenetic and transcriptional biomarkers for improved diagnosis and prognosis of critical systemic illnesses.
Associate Professor of Neurology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Elucidate biological functions of cytoskeletal associated proteins in neurons. Define the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying neurodegeneration in null mice.
