Clinical Professor, Pediatrics - Critical Care
Current Research and Scholarly Interests In my administrative role, I oversee the development and maintenance of clinical decision support tools within the electronic medical record. These clinical decision support tools are designed to enhance patient safety, efficiency, and quality of care. My research focuses on rigorously evaluating--1) how these tools affect clinician knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors; and 2) how these tools affect clinical outcomes and efficiency of health care delivery.
Latha Palaniappan, MD, MS
Professor of Medicine (Primary Care and Population Health) and, by courtesy, of Epidemiology and Population Health at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Palaniappan has published over 200 peer reviewed manuscripts, abstracts, and book chapters over the last 20 years in the areas of chronic disease prevention and treatment in diverse populations. She has expertise in epidemiological research using big data, use of electronic health records for research, and clinical trials.
Jonathan P. Palma
Clinical Professor, Pediatrics - Neonatal and Developmental Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Interventional informatics to achieve examples of a learning healthcare system; optimization of commercial EMRs to support complex clinical workflows in newborn intensive care; clinical decision support; real-time clinical dashboards; electronic sign-out tools; IT-supported patient/family communication.
Alan C. Pao
Assistant Professor of Medicine (Nephrology) and, by courtesy, of Urology at the Palo Alto Veterans Affairs Health Care System
Current Research and Scholarly Interests We are interested in how the kidneys control salt, water, and electrolyte homeostasis in the body. We use cultured kidney cells, transgenic mice, and human samples to study hormonal and signal transduction pathways that control epithelial ion transport. Clinical implications of our work include a better understanding of the pathogenesis of salt-sensitive hypertension and kidney stone formation and growth.
Assistant Professor of Medicine (Cardiovascular Medicine) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Bio Dr. Parikh is cardiologist specializing in the care of patients with inherited cardiovascular diseases. She completed clinical cardiology fellowship at Stanford School of Medicine and her medical residency at the University of California, San Francisco. Funded by research grant from the NIH, she currently studies multiple causes of cardiomyopathy in the laboratory. She has a particular clinical and scientific interest in inherited arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathies, which are an increasingly recognized disease entity. Dr. Parikh is currently using patient cohort genetics, high throughput molecular biology and human induced pluripotent stem cell derived cardiomyocytes to study variant pathogenicity in this disease.
Assistant Professor of Medicine (Gastroenterology and Hepatology) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Park's research interests are in the diagnosis and management of pancreatic cysts, acute and chronic pancreatitis. His approach incorporates methods in health services research including the use of observational datasets, cost-effectiveness studies, and the development of clinical cohorts.
Professor of Medicine, Emerita
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The lab is studying the mechanisms controlling B cell responsiveness and the balance between tolerance and autoimmunity. B cells deficient in CD72 are hyperresponsive to stimulation through the B cell receptor. We are examining the alterations in B cell signaling in these B cells and the mechanisms by which CD72 deficiency partially abrogates anergic tolerance. We hope to learn how deficiency in CD72 leads to spontaneous autoimmunity and increased susceptibility to induced autoimmune disease.
