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.

Ravindra Majeti MD, PhD
Associate Professor of Medicine (Hematology)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Ravindra Majeti focuses on the molecular characterization and therapeutic targeting of leukemia stem cells in human hematologic disorders, particularly acute myeloid leukemia (AML LSC). A major focus is the identification of cell surface molecules preferentially expressed on LSC and the development of therapeutic monoclonal antibodies targeting these proteins. Toward this goal, together with Irv Weissman, the lab is actively developing an anti-CD47 antibody for clinical trials in human AML.
