Laurel Stevens, MD
Clinical Assistant Professor, Dermatology
Bio A native of Washington, Dr. Laurel Stevens joined our faculty in August of 2015 as a specialist in both general dermatology and dermatopathology. She received her BS in Cellular and Molecular Biology from the University of Washington and graduated with Summa Cum Laude honors. Currently a member of the American Academy of Dermatology, she received her medical degree from the University Of Rochester School Of Medicine, where she graduated with a Distinction in Research. She completed her Dermatology residency at Emory University in Atlanta and a Fellowship in Dermatopathology at Stanford University. Dr. Stevens? professional interests include improving patient access and care practices in general dermatology, dermatological urgent care, inpatient consult dermatology, and dermatopathology. Dr. Stevens currently serves as the lead physician for the department?s new Urgent Access clinic.
Bio Dr. Wenchao Sun is a research scientist in the Biomaterials and Advanced Drug Delivery (BioADD) Laboratory at Stanford University, California, USA. A biochemist by training, Dr. Sun has strong research experience in small molecule and biologics delivery systems (protein and gene delivery) and bioanalytical techniques. He received his undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China. He went on to pursue his PhD in Dr. Pamela B. Davis lab at Case Western Reserve University, Ohio, USA. While learning about Cystic Fibrosis in Dr. Davis lab, he became interested in non-viral gene delivery as a novel therapy for this genetic disease. He studied the interaction of polymer based DNA nanoparticles with cells and acquired experience in bioconjugation. Dr. Sun then joined the BioADD lab at Stanford University for his postdoctoral training where he expanded his interest in drug delivery to include therapeutic proteins and small molecules. He soon became an expert in transdermal drug and protein delivery. He also delved into the mechanistic study of a small molecule drug for Alzheimer?s disease. He is now in charge of the Bioanalytical Division of the lab where he uses liquid chromatography mass spectrometry (LCMS) to conduct bioanalysis and metabolite ID of small molecule drugs. Being in the forefront of translational research, Dr. Sun played a leading role in a number of collaborative projects.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests My laboratory is focused on two primary areas of research: (1) the immune response to head and neck cancer and to a tumorigenic population of cells within these malignancies called cancer stem cells; (2) the developmental programs of a special lymphocyte population involved in innate immunity called natural killer (NK) cells; and (3) intra-tumor and inter-tumor heterogeneity.
