Jonathan Z. Long
Assistant Professor of Pathology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My laboratory studies the molecular pathways that control mammalian energy homeostasis. We focus on the dynamic chemical signals that integrate environmental cues with metabolic tissue function. What are the identities of these signals? How do their levels change in response to physiologic energy stressors? Where are they made? What cell types or tissues do they act on? To answer these questions, we use mass spectrometry-based technologies as discovery tools. We combine these tools with classical biochemical and genetic techniques in cellular and animal models. Our goal is to discover new molecules and signaling pathways that regulate organismal energy metabolism. Ultimately, we seek to translate our discoveries into therapeutic opportunities for metabolic and other chronic diseases.
Teri A Longacre
Richard L. Kempson, MD, Professor in Surgical Pathology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Gynecological, breast and gastrointestinal pathology with major emphasis on ovarian cancer and ovarian tumors of low malignant potential. Pathology of familial and hereditary breast-ovarian-GI cancer.
Alarice Cheng-Yi Lowe
Associate Professor of Pathology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Bio Dr. Lowe joined the School of Medicine faculty in 2019. She received her undergraduate degree in Biology from MIT and her medical degree at UCSD, prior to residency and cytology fellowship at UCLA. In 2011, she joined the faculty at Brigham and Women's Hospital where she developed a research focus on Circulating Tumor Cells (CTCs) and the application of CTC technology to improve clinical diagnostics. Clinically, her interests focus on Cytopathology and Genitourinary Pathology.
Professor of Pathology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests We are interested in understanding how neural stem cells balance their self-renewal and differentiation and how deregulation of this process can result in brain tumor. We are also interested in mechanisms of neurodegeneration in Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases. We are using both Drosophila and mammalian models to address these fundamental questions.
