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.

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.
Tamara Kailoa Montacute, MD, MPH
Clinical Instructor, Medicine - Primary Care and Population Health
Bio Tamara Kailoa Montacute is a board certified Family Medicine physician. She enjoys taking care of the entire family (including kids), and has special interest in women?s health, adolescent health, preventative health, integrative & alternative medicine, chronic disease management, mental health, and travel medicine. She also speaks Spanish!
She was born in New Zealand, grew up in England and moved to Seattle when she was twelve. Prior to attending medical school at Stanford, she completed her Masters in Public Health at Columbia University and spent several years working on public health programs in Mexico, Panama, Ethiopia and Rwanda. After medical school, she completed a Family Medicine Residency at O?Connor Hospital in San Jose.
Outside the clinic, she enjoys hiking, biking, cooking, gardening, reading, doing yoga, walking her dog and traveling.

Stanford Medicine Pathology Professor
Bio Dr. Montine received his education at Columbia University (BA in Chemistry), the University of Rochester (PhD in Pharmacology), and McGill University (MD and CM). His postgraduate medical training was at Duke University, and he was junior faculty at Vanderbilt University where he was awarded the Thorne Professorship in Pathology. In 2002, Dr. Montine was appointed as the Alvord Endowed Professor in Neuropathology and Director of the Division of Neuropathology at the University of Washington. He was Director of the University of Washington Alzheimer?s Disease Research Center, one of the original 10 Centers in the US, and passed that responsibility to able colleagues. In 2010, Dr. Montine was appointed Chair of the Department of Pathology at the University of Washington. In 2016, Dr. Montine was appointed Chair of the Department of Pathology at Stanford University where he is the Stanford Medicine Endowed Professor in Pathology.
Dr. Montine is the founding Director of the Pacific Udall Center, one of 9 NINDS-funded Morris K. Udall Centers of Excellence for Parkinson?s Disease Research. Our center performs basic, translational, and clinical research focused on cognitive impairment in Parkinson?s disease. The Pacific Udall Center emphasizes a vision for precision health that comprises functional genomics, development of surveillance tools for pre-clinical detection, and discovery of molecularly tailored therapies.
Dr. Montine is among the top recipients of NIH funding for all Department of Pathology faculty in the United States. He was the 2015 President of the American Association of Neuropathologists, and led or co-led recent NIH initiatives to revise diagnostic guidelines for Alzheimer?s disease (NIA), develop research priorities for the National Alzheimer?s Plan (NINDS and NIA), and develop research priorities for Parkinson?s Disease (NINDS).
The focus of the Montine Laboratory is on the structural and molecular bases of cognitive impairment with the goal of defining key pathogenic steps and thereby new therapeutic targets. The Montine Laboratory addresses these prevalent, unmet medical needs through a combination of neuropathology, biomarker development and application early in the course of disease, and experimental studies that test hypotheses concerning specific mechanisms of neuron injury and approaches to neuroprotection. PubMed lists 579 publications for Dr. Montine. Google Scholar estimates Dr. Montine?s citations as > 38,000, his i-10 index as 355, and his H-Index as 98. NIH iCite calculates (1995 to 2017) Dr. Montine?s weighted relative citation ratio as 2041.
