Current Research and Scholarly Interests We study the primary cilium, a once-obscure cellular organelle recently "re-discovered" for its role in a number of signaling pathways. Defects in cilium biogenesis lead to a variety of hereditary disorders characterized by retinal degeneration, kidney cysts and obesity. Our goal is to characterize these disorders at the molecular and cellular levels to gain insight into the basic mechanisms of primary cilium biogenesis and to discover novel ciliary signaling pathways.

Our research interests in the laboratory focus on the role of human T cells, specifically natural regulatory T cells (Treg, in immunological diseases. We aim to differentiate the mechanisms of action of regulatory T cell suppressive function. We study how pollution, such as diesel exhause, disrupt Treg suppressive function and how chemokines, like lymphotactin, enhance Treg suppressive function. We also study Treg function in tolerance.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests Glioblastoma is an aggressive brain cancer with limited options for therapy. Currently, our group is looking to bring at least 2 new trials for treatment at the time of diagnosis and at recurrence to Stanford.
The spread of systemic cancer, like lung and breast cancers, to the covering of the brain, is adevastating and often lethal complication. I am working to bring a trials for early detection and treatment to Stanford, with the and making this a unique focus of our new brain tumor center.

Professor of Radiology (Diagnostic Radiology) and, by courtesy, of Medicine (Medical Informatics) and of Electrical Engineering
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research seeks to advance the clinical and basic sciences in radiology, while improving our understanding of biology and the manifestations of disease, by pioneering methods in the information sciences that integrate imaging, clinical and molecular data. A current focus is on content-based radiological image retrieval and integration of imaging features with clinical and molecular data for diagnostic, prognostic, and therapy planning decision support.
Assistant Professor of Pediatrics (Hematology/Oncology) at the Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interests are to study the pathophysiology of ribosomopathies and to translate these insights into the work-up and management of pediatric bone marrow failure syndromes.
