Jason D. Merker, MD, PhD
Assistant Professor of Pathology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Bio Dr. Merker is a clinical laboratory-based physician who specializes in genetic disease testing for both heritable disease and cancer. He is board-certified in Molecular Genetic Pathology, Clinical Pathology, and Clinical Cytogenetics. Dr. Merker is Co-Director of the Stanford Medicine Clinical Genomics Service, a laboratory section within the Stanford Anatomic Pathology & Clinical Laboratories that uses genomic sequencing and other advanced methods to evaluate the cause of disease in patients with unexplained heritable disease. He also directs an active research group that focuses on two areas: 1) development of improved experimental and computational approaches related to the use of genomic sequencing and other ?omics? assays for clinical care, and 2) identification and characterization of acquired and heritable genetic variants that are important for the development of hematologic disorders and other malignancies.

Stanford University Professor of Nephrology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Inadequate removal of uremic solutes contributes to widespread illness in the more than 350,000 Americans maintained on hemodialysis. But we know remarkably little about these solutes. Dr. Meyer's research efforts are focused on identifying which uremic solutes are toxic, how these solutes are made, and how their production could be decreased or their removal could be increased. We should be able to improve treatment if we knew more about what we are trying to remove.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests CELLULAR INFORMATION PROCESSING The main problem in signal transduction is to understand how different receptor-stimuli specifically control diverse cell functions. We are using automated microscopy, live-cell fluorescent biosensors and perturbations of predicted signaling proteins to systematically dissect signaling networks. This allows us to identify signaling modules and to elucidate and ultimately model the flow of cellular information.
