Assistant Professor of Pathology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests We identified a common disorder of aging called clonal hematopoiesis of indeterminate potential (CHIP). CHIP occurs due to certain somatic mutations in blood stem cells and represents a precursor state for blood cancer, but is also associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease and death. We hope to understand more about the biology and clinical implications of CHIP using human and model system studies.
Professor of Structural Biology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The Jardetzky laboratory is studying the structures and mechanisms of macromolecular complexes important in viral pathogenesis, allergic hypersensitivities and the regulation of cellular growth and differentiation, with an interest in uncovering novel conceptual approaches to intervening in disease processes. Ongoing research projects include studies of paramyxovirus and herpesvirus entry mechanisms, IgE-receptor structure and function and TGF-beta ligand signaling pathways.
Associate Professor of Chemical and Systems Biology and of Developmental Biology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My laboratory studies conformational switches in evolution, disease, and development. We focus on how molecular chaperones, proteins that help other biomolecules to fold, affect the phenotypic output of genetic variation. To do so we combine classical biochemistry and genetics with systems-level approaches. Ultimately we seek to understand how homeostatic mechanisms influence the acquisition of biological novelty and identify means of manipulating them for therapeutic and biosynthetic benefit.
Stefanie S. Jeffrey, MD
John and Marva Warnock Professor
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Jeffrey led the multidisciplinary team from the Schools of Medicine, Engineering, and Genome Technology Center that invented the MagSweeper, an automated device that immunomagnetically captures live circulating tumor cells (CTCs) from cancer patient blood for single cell analysis or culture. Her lab also works on microfluidic technologies for tumor cell capture, characterization, and growth - with the goal of defining individual patient response to newer biologically-based cancer therapies.
Professor of Pediatrics (Hematology/Oncology) at the Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Research interests focus on: 1) histiocytic disorders, such as Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) and hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH), and 2) vascular anomalies and malformations.
Associate Professor of Pathology at the Palo Alto Veteran's Health Care System and at Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am a clinical translational investigator with a primary interest in breast cancer biology, and the use of investigational and clinical ancillary techniques such as gene and tissue microarray analysis and immunohistochemistry in the diagnosis and prognosis of this disease. As a practicing cytopathologist, I also have an interest in improving the fine needle aspiration biopsy diagnosis of breast lesions, again using immunohistochemistry and gene expression analysis as adjuncts to cytomorphology.
Instructor, Cardiovascular Institute
Bio Alokkumar Jha, Ph.D., is a translational researcher working into healthcare data science and disease modeling using multi-dimensional omics and diagnostic imaging data.
He holds background with tumorigenesis, metastasis, tumor evolution and cell-cell communication. His earlier research yielded clinically actionable biomarkers for gynecologic cancers, breast cancer, pancreatic cancer, multiple myeloma, and prostate cancer.
He primarily focused on building the prediction model using artificial intelligence and deep learning for clinical patient stratification and drug dosage balancing. He also developed several novel methods for biomarker discovery such as graph motif mining, Kirchoff's law traversal, deep convolution neural network, and the semantic web.
His recent research is focused on explaining mosaicism genetics for cardiac amyloidosis and multiple myeloma.
