    Seung K. Kim M.D., Ph.D.

    Professor of Developmental Biology and, by courtesy, of Medicine (Endocrinology)

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests We study the development of pancreatic islet cells using molecular, embryologic and genetic methods in several model systems, including mice, pigs, human pancreas, embryonic stem cells, and Drosophila. Our work suggests that critical factors required for islet development are also needed to maintain essential functions of the mature islet. These approaches have informed efforts to generate replacement islets from renewable sources for diabetes.

  • Juliet Klasing Knowles

    Juliet Klasing Knowles

    Instructor, Neurology & Neurological Sciences

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am currently working in the laboratories of Drs. Michelle Monje and John Huguenard at Stanford using genetic and optogenetic models of epilepsy to study the impact of recurrent seizures on myelin. This is a potential novel mechanism contributing to epileptogenesis, cognitive dysfunction and developmental delay in children with epilepsy. Concurrently, I am conducting translational research related to white matter/myelin abnormalities in neonatal and other forms of pediatric epilepsy in collaboration with Drs. Courtney Wusthoff and Kristen Yeom of Pediatric Epilepsy and Pediatric Neuroradiology.
    This work is supported by NIH/NINDS, the American Epilepsy Society, the CURE Foundation and the Stanford Child Health Research Institute.

  • Justin M Ko, MD, MBA

    Justin M Ko, MD, MBA

    Clinical Associate Professor, Dermatology

    Bio Dr. Ko joined Stanford Medicine in 2012 and serves as Director and Chief of Medical Dermatology for Stanford Health Care (SHC) while also spearheading the dermatology department's efforts around network development, digital health, quality/safety/performance improvement, and value-based care. He is active in a number of leadership roles within the organization including co-chairing the Clinic Advisory Council, a forum of medical and executive leaders of Stanford Health Care?s Ambulatory clinics, and as a Service Medical Director.

    His passion for melanoma, early cancer detection, and improving care delivery drives his efforts and research around leveraging advances in machine learning and artifical intelligence to increase the breadth of populations that can be reached. He developed and runs a digital care delivery program at SHC, providing virtual visits for patients and remote consultations for referring clinicians. He conducts research on and engages in collaborations around interventions that layer advances in machine learning on digital health capabilities to enhance access, quality and value of dermatologic care. He chairs the American Academy of Dermatology's Task Force Committee on Augmented Intelligence.

    Dr. Ko has also been driven to find new treatments for alopecia areata, an immune-mediated condition that can progress to total hair loss through various clinical trials and translational research efforts. He sits on the clinical research advisory board of the National Alopecia Areata Foundation and is founder and co-director of the Skin Interventional and Innovation Research Group (SIIRG) which conducts clinical and translational research on skin disease.

    He graduated magna cum laude from Harvard University and worked in investment banking; mergers and acquisitions at JP Morgan before going on to earn a combined medical and business degree at Tufts University. During medical school, he was a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha honor society. Dr. Ko then performed his residency at the Harvard Dermatology Residency Training Program where he served as chief resident.

  • Emily Kraus

    Emily Kraus

    Clinical Assistant Professor, Orthopaedic Surgery

    Bio Dr. Emily Kraus is a Clinical Assistant Professor at Stanford Children?s Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Center. She specializes in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) sports medicine and takes a unique approach to the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of sports injuries in athletes of all ages. She is involved in multiple Stanford IRB-approved research projects, including The Healthy Runner Project, a multicenter prospective interventional study focused on bone stress injury prevention in collegiate middle and long distance runners.

    Dr. Kraus also spends time performing gait analysis at the Stanford Run Safe Injury Prevention Program and serves as a medical advisors for the Adaptive Sports Injury Prevention Program at the Palo Alto VA. She has research and clinical interests in endurance sports medicine, injury prevention, running biomechanics, the prevention of bone stress injuries in collegiate athletes and the promotion of health and wellness at any age of life.

    She has completed seven marathons including Boston Marathon twice and one 50k ultramarathon. With running and staying physically active as one of her personal passions, she recognizes the importance of fitness for overall wellbeing and the prevention of chronic medical conditions.

  • Calvin Kuo

    Calvin Kuo

    Maureen Lyles D'Ambrogio Professor

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests We study cancer biology, intestinal stem cells (ISC), and angiogenesis. We use primary organoid cultures of diverse tissues and tumor biopsies for immunotherapy modeling, oncogene functional screening and stem cell biology. Angiogenesis projects include blood-brain barrier regulation, stroke therapeutics and anti-angiogenic cancer therapy. ISC projects apply organoid culture and ko mice to injury-inducible vs homeostatic stem cells and symmetric division mechanisms.
