Bio Professor Cappelli is the author of over 100 papers in these areas. He is currently a member of the Editorial Board of Diamond Films and Technology. He is also secretary of the Electric Propulsion Technical Committee of the American Institute for Aeronautics and Astronautics.
Assistant Professor of Microbiology and Immunology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our research focuses on the identification of host genes that play critical roles in the pathogenesis of infectious agents including viruses. We use haploid genetic screens in human cells as an efficient approach to perform loss-of-function studies. Besides obtaining fundamental insights on how viruses hijack cellular processes and on host defense mechanisms, it may also facilitate the development of new therapeutic strategies.

Robert W. Carlson
Professor of Medicine (Oncology and General Internal Medicine/Medical Informatics) at the Stanford University Medical Center, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Clinical investigations in breast cancer include institutional and NSABP studies of chemoprevention, adjuvant therapy, psychosocial interventions, treatment of metastatic disease, methods of decreasing anthracycline cardiotoxicity, and modulation of multidrug resistance. Research in meta-analysis includes the performance of meta-analysis in a wide variety of settings in cancer treatment by the international Meta-Analysis Group in Cancer.
Professor (Research) of Pediatrics (Neonatology)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our research focuses on epidemiologic studies related to maternal and child health. Current projects address congenital anomalies of craniofacial, urogenital, musculoskeletal and central nervous system structures and how they relate to genetics, nutrition, stress, and environmental contaminants. Physiologic pathways encompassed by these studies include one-carbon metabolism, oxidative stress, HPA axis activation, and sex steroid metabolism. In particular, we are interested in discovering how environmental factors and genetic susceptibility may interact to affect these pathways and impact risks of these outcomes. Other active projects include investigations into the etiology of preterm delivery and stillbirth, and factors affecting the care and outcomes of infants with birth defects.
