Professor of Developmental Biology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests We use genetic and cellular approaches to investigate the molecular basis of glial development and myelination in the zebrafish.
Jean Y. Tang MD PhD
Associate Professor of Dermatology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research focuses on 2 main areas:
1. Skin cancer:
- New therapeutics to treat and prevent non-melanoma skin cancer, especially by targeting the Hedgehog signaling pathway for BCC tumors
- Genomic analysis of drug-resistant cancers
- Identifying risk factors for skin cancer in the Women's Health Initiative
2. Epidermolysis Bullosa: gene therapy and protein therapy to replace defective/absent Collagen 7 in children and adults with Recessive Dystrophic EB
Mary Frances Nunez Teruel
Assistant Professor of Chemical and Systems Biology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The Teruel Lab uses a combination of engineering and biological approaches including high-throughput screening of RNAi and DNA construct libraries, targeted mass spectrometry, live-cell fluorescence microscopy, and bioinformatics to investigate the systems biology of cell differentiation and cell signaling with particular focus on uncovering the molecular mechanisms underlying insulin resistance, diabetes, and obesity.
Professor of Health Research and Policy (Biostatistics) and of Statistics
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research is in applied statistics and biostatistics. I specialize in computer-intensive methods for regression and classification, bootstrap, cross-validationand statistical inference, and signal and image analysis for medical diagnosis.
Assistant Professor of Pediatrics (Cardiology) at the Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Assessment of Vascular Health by non-invasive modalities in children
Echocardiography and outcomes in congenital heart disease
Philip S. Tsao, PhD
Professor (Research) of Medicine (Cardiovascular Medicine)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our primary interests are in the molecular underpinnings of vascular disease as well as assessing disease risk. In addition to targeted investigation of specific signaling molecules, we utilize global genomic analysis to identify gene expression networks and regulatory units. We are particularly interested in the role of microRNAs in gene expression pathways associated with disease.
