    Vance Vanier, M.D.

    Clinical Assistant Professor, Emergency Medicine

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Primary and secondary prevention of disease through the use of preventive genomic medicine. Patients who have greater insight into their genetic risk for different diseases may change their lifestyles and decrease their probablity of succumbing to conditions such as diabetes and cardiovascular events. Personalized screening regimens for those at increased genetic risk, such as for colon cancer, is another important application worthy of validation.

  • Samuel Yang, MD, FACEP

    Samuel Yang, MD, FACEP

    Associate Professor of Emergency Medicine at the Stanford University Medical Center

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Yang's research is focused on bridging the translational gap at the interface of molecular biology, genome science, engineering, and acute care medicine. The investigative interest of the Yang lab falls within the general theme of developing integrative systems-level approaches for precision diagnostics, as well as data driven knowledge discoveries, to improve the health outcome and our understanding of complex critical illnesses. Using sepsis as the disease model with complex host-pathogen dynamics, the goals of the Yang lab are divided into 2 areas:

    1) Developing high-content, near-patient, diagnostic system for rapid broad pathogen detection and characterization.

    2) Integrating multi-omics molecular and phenotypic data layers with novel computational approaches into AI-assisted diagnostics and predictive analytics for sepsis.

  • Maame Yaa A. B. Yiadom

    Maame Yaa A. B. Yiadom

    Clinical Instructor, Emergency Medicine

    Bio Dr. Yiadom is an Associate Professor of Emergency Medicine at Stanford University and researcher with expertise in emergency care clinical operations and timely emergency care delivery. She was first trained in health care policy in Princeton University?s School of Public and International Affairs. She subsequently worked as a healthcare industry management consultant here in New York City for CSC Global Health Solutions Group, and was the Dean?s Office Chief of Staff at Drexel Medical School in Philadelphia. She completed her medical education at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, a Masters in Public Health (MPH) at Harvard with additional health policy training from Johns Hopkins. She subsequently did residency at Mass General and Brigham and Women?s Hospitals? Harvard affiliated program, and completed a Masters of Science in Clinical Investigation (MSCI) at Vanderbilt University.

    Dr. Yiadom is the Principal Investigator for the Stanford Emergency Care Health Services Research Data Coordinating Center (HSR-DCC). Her research focuses on applications of evidence-based medicine to optimize clinical operations to target patient pathophysiology for time-sensitive conditions. STEMI is her prototype disease. Current work includes refining clinical process, using informatics to support evidence-based practice, and performance measurement to identify real-world care improvement opportunities. Her research is supported by the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI), and ED Benchmarking Alliance. She is the Founding Director of the Emergency Department Operations Study Group (EDOSG), and on the Board of Directors for the Emergency Department Benchmarking Alliance (EDBA). Her interested in population health via emergency care have extended to Haiti, Guyana and Ghana. She and her husband Ryan Van Cleave (Airforce veteran, and Northern California native) have 3 children: Marialex (age 17), Victoria (age 14), and Jasmine (age 5).
