George A. Zimmermann Professor and Professor of Pediatrics
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our laboratory is dedicated to understanding the pathogenesis of autoimmune diseases, particularly multiple sclerosis. We have developed several new therapies for autoimmunity, including some in Phase 2 clinical trials, as well as one approved drug, natalizumab. We have developed microarray technology for detecting autoantibodies to myelin proteins and lipids. We employ a diverse range of molecular and celluar approaches to trying to understand multiple sclerosis.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests Clinical Informatics is the scientific field concerned with the application of information technology to the delivery of healthcare services. In my current role as a lead physician in this department, I work with my colleagues to evaluate the best ways to implement and optimize health information technology to benefit the patients we serve at Stanford Children's Health. Specific areas of focus include: Improving EMR education for clinicians and merging Health IT with medical education.
David A. Stevenson, MD
Associate Professor of Pediatrics (Genetics) at the Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research focuses on disorders of the RAS/MAPK pathway (eg. NF1, Noonan, CFC, and Costello syndrome). I am working on understanding the impact of RAS signaling on the musculoskeletal system. I use genomic approaches to identify somatic events and modifiers in the RASopathies. I am also involved in identifying outcome measures for use in clinical trials for the associated orthopedic manifestations. Other areas of research involve vascular anomalies, Prader-Willi syndrome, and hypophosphatasia.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our research is focused on the study of the ontogeny and control of heme catabolism and bilirubin production in the developing neonate. A better understanding of the role of increased bilirubin production in neonatal jaundice and the prevention of hemolytic jaundice has remained an overall objective of our program. Thus, we are exploring the pivotal role of the enzyme heme oxygenase (HO), the rate-limiting enzyme in the production of bilirubin in the developing neonate.
Clinical Instructor, Pediatrics - Neonatal and Developmental Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Current research focus is on Quality Improvement in the NICU, along with participation in hospital-wide and state-wide QI initiatives.
Clinical Professor, Pediatrics - General Pediatrics
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My primary professional interests include teaching and curriculum design around patient-centered and cross-cultural communication, clinical reasoning, and performance assessment. My clinical teaching emphasizes role modeling and reflection on doctor-patient interactions and clinical decision-making.
