Professor of Microbiology and Immunology, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interests focus on the biology and pathogenesis of cytomegalovirus (CMV), an opportunistic pathogen that causes significant disease worldwide. We developed global approaches and produced key insights into the areas of CMV gene regulation, DNA replication and packaging, maturation, impact on the host cell, disease pathogenesis, latency and reactivation, host cell signaling and chemokine system. These diverse findings address key aspects of the virus-host interaction.
The George D. Smith Professor in Translational Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Two areas: 1. Using rationally-designed peptide inhibitors to study protein-protein interactions in cell signaling. Focus: protein kinase C in heart and large GTPases regulating mitochondrial dynamics in neurodegdenration. 2. Using small molecules (identified in a high throughput screens and synthetic chemistry) as activators and inhibitors of aldehyde dehydrogenases, a family of detoxifying enzymes, and glucose-6-phoshate dehydrogenase, in normal cells and in models of human diseases.
Clinical Assistant Professor, Medicine - Primary Care and Population Health
Bio I was born, raised, and trained in Nashik, India where I completed my formal Medical Education before moving to New York City where I completed my residency in Internal Medicine at New York Downtown Hospital in New York, NY. My interests are in preventative medicne, health and wellness, occupational and environmental safety. In Stanford's Occupational Health Department, I practice clinical occupational medicine while working toward identifying health and safety issues within our enviroment to prevent further injury and illness to our employees.
David G. Mohler, MD
Clinical Professor, Orthopaedic Surgery
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Mohler is involved in gene expression in sarcomas, and innovative anatomy-preserving surgical management of low grade chondrosarcomas.
Arash Momeni, MD
Assistant Professor of Surgery (Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Momeni's research focuses on clinical outcomes after microsurgical reconstruction, with a particular emphasis on modifiable risk factors that contribute to the development of VTE.
Denise M. Monack
Professor of Microbiology and Immunology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The primary focus of my research is to understand the genetic and molecular mechanisms of intracellular bacterial pathogenesis. We use several model systems to study complex host-pathogen interactions in the gut and in immune cells such as macrophages and dendritic cells. Ultimately we would like to understand how Salmonella persists within certain hosts for years in the face of a robust immune response.
Assistant Professor of Neurology and, by courtesy, of Neurosurgery, of Pediatrics, of Pathology and of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The Monje Lab studies the molecular and cellular mechanisms of postnatal neurodevelopment. This includes microenvironmental influences on neural precursor cell fate choice in normal neurodevelopment and in disease states.
