Current Research and Scholarly Interests Recent clinical studies, by us and others, have demonstrated unequivocally that T cell based immunotherapy can eradicate cancers resistant to all other available therapies. Our program is focused on using genetically engineered T cells to treat cancer. We link the bench with the bedside, developing novel therapies for early phase testing in clinical trials, as well as conducting intensive studies on clinical samples obtained from patients treated on immunotherapy trials.

Professor of Medicine (Cardiovascular Medicine) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Bio Clinical Focus: Cardiovascular Medicine
My primary research interest is the design and conduct of multicenter clinical trials and analyses of important clinical cardiac issues using large patient databases. My research focuses on novel anticoagulation agents for the treatment of acute coronary syndromes and atrial fibrillation, the study of agents targeted to protect the myocardium during reperfusion therapy for acute myocardial infarction, and the evaluation of cardiovascular safety of diabetic therapies. I am also interested in the methodology of clinical trials. Current research activities include standardization of the definition of myocardial infarction used in clinical trials, the adjudication of suspected clinical endpoint events by Clinical Event Committees (CEC), and the efficient operational conduct of large multinational clinical trials.
