The George D. Smith Professor in Translational Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Two areas: 1. Using rationally-designed peptide inhibitors to study protein-protein interactions in cell signaling. Focus: protein kinase C in heart and large GTPases regulating mitochondrial dynamics in neurodegdenration. 2. Using small molecules (identified in a high throughput screens and synthetic chemistry) as activators and inhibitors of aldehyde dehydrogenases, a family of detoxifying enzymes, and glucose-6-phoshate dehydrogenase, in normal cells and in models of human diseases.
Stephen B. Montgomery
Associate Professor of Pathology, and of Genetics
Current Research and Scholarly Interests We focus on understanding the effects of genome variation on cellular phenotypes and cellular modeling of disease through genomic approaches such as next generation RNA sequencing in combination with developing and utilizing state-of-the-art bioinformatics and statistical genetics approaches.

Professor of Radiology (Radiological Sciences Lab)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests MR physics into tissue contrast mechanisms such as diffusion, perfusion, and functional imaging describes the research direction. Applications of cerebral stroke (brain attacks) and neurocognitive disorders are also being developed from these methods
Professor of Pediatrics (Cardiology) at the Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital and at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Murphy's major interests are in noninvasive cardiology and clinical pediatric and adult congenital cardiac disease. These clinical interests range from imaging of complex cardiac disease in the fetus and newborn to care of the adult with congenital heart disease. He also coordinates the Marfan clinic at LPCH. He is the director of the Adult Congenital Cardiac Clinic at Stanford University Medical Center.
