Amy Ladd, MD
Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery (Hand Surgery) and, by courtesy, of Medicine (Immunology & Rheumatology) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Research Interests
1. The kinematics and forces associated with thumb carpometcarpal (CMC) function and pathology
2. The anatomy, microstructure, and immunofluorescent characteristics of the thumb CMC joint
3. Pathomechaniics of CMC arthritis: biomechanical wear, injury, genetic, and environmental causes

Professor of Medicine (Nephrology) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests We are continuing to grow a glomerulonephritis cohort study, including immunologic characterization. We have completed interventional studies of preeclampsia exploring the nitric oxide, endothelin system and effects on glomerular function and morphometry. We continue to recruit patients for treatment and observational studies of glomerular disease, including FSGS, membranous and particularly IgA nephropathy. We also are actively studying renal disease in systemic amyloidosis.
Professor of Radiology (General Radiology) and of Medicine (Biomedical Informatics Research) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am interested in improving the accuracy and reliability of image interpretation. My research uses machine learning techniques for automated analysis of clinical images. My laboratory also is developing systems and standards to facilitate structured data capture during routine image interpretation. And we are developing natural language processing methods to extract concepts from the narrative text that remains a part of the radiology report.
