Suleiman Alfred Massarweh
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My work is focused in investigating mechanisms of endocrine resistance in ER-positive breast cancer and novel clinical trial designs of combined ER and targeted therapeutics. Primary areas of investigation are in metastatic disease and preoperative clinical trials.
Additional areas of interest include breast cancer in young women, in men, and breast cancer diagnosed during pregnancy.
Tarik F. Massoud, MD, PhD
Professor of Radiology (Neuroimaging and Neurointervention) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My current interests are in molecular and translational imaging of the brain especially in neuro-oncology and cerebrovascular diseases, experimental aspects of neuroimaging, clinical neuroradiology, neuroradiological anatomy, and research education and academic training of radiologists and scientists.

Rachel J. Mesia
Program Director, Community Research & Capacity-Building, Stanford Cancer Institute
Current Role at Stanford At the Stanford Cancer Institute, Ms. Mesia is working in cancer control and clinical research to reduce the burdens of cancer and promote health equity. As Program Director for Community Research and Capacity-Building, she is responsible for leading efforts that enhance collaborations, community health planning, and program/project delivery with community and research partnerships. She manages the cancer clinical trials outreach-recruitment services and activities, which seeks to enhance knowledge and foster inclusive community access to cancer research.
Assistant Professor of Medicine (Blood and Marrow Transplantation) and of Pediatrics (Stem Cell Transplantation) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Research focus in T cell immunotherapy and T cell immune monitoring using high-throughput sequencing and genomic approaches, with an emphasis on hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, the treatment of graft-versus-host disease and immune tolerance induction.
Mrs. George A. Winzer Professor in Cell Biology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests CELLULAR INFORMATION PROCESSING. We are using live single-cell microscopy approaches to understand the design principles of cell signaling circuits. Mammalian signaling processes have a unique logic due to the large number of signaling proteins, second messengers and chromatin modifiers involved in each decision process. We are particularly interested in understanding how cells make decisions to enter and exit the cell cycle and how they decide to polarize and move.
Associate Professor of Medicine (Blood and Marrow Transplantation) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Miklos is the Associate Chief of BMT & Clinical Director of Cancer Cell Therapy. Dr. Miklos leads Stanford?s CAR therapy clinical trials for patients with aggressive lymphomas and directs their multidimensional correlative research studies: 1) tumor antigen quantification, 2) single cell functional product characterization, 3) CAR-FACS immune phenotyping of blood and tumor, and identifying mechanisms for CAR-T treatment Failure including antigen loss, CAR-T exhaustion, and CAR suppression.
