Clinical Professor, Medicine - Primary Care and Population Health
Current Research and Scholarly Interests In the Philippines where hypertension and prehypertension are prevalent and medication not affordable, we are looking into prevention of hypertension through education and lifestyle modification as a practical alternatives.
John V. Gahagan, MD
Clinical Assistant Professor, Surgery - General Surgery
Bio John Gahagan, MD is a Clinical Assistant Professor of Surgery in the Section of Colorectal Surgery. He has extensive training in advanced minimally invasive surgical techniques including robotic and laparoscopic surgery. He has authored several textbook chapters and original articles in peer-reviewed journals. His clinical practice is focused on the surgical treatment of colon and rectal cancers, inflammatory bowel disease (ulcerative colitis and Crohn?s disease), and benign colon and anorectal diseases (diverticulitis, hemorrhoids, fistulas, fissures). He believes in patient-centered care and multi-disciplinary approach to the treatment of diseases of the colon, rectum and anus. He joined Stanford in 2019 and is excited to build a Stanford colorectal surgery practice in the East Bay and Tri-Valley area at Stanford ? ValleyCare in Pleasanton.
Associate Professor of Pathology at the Stanford University Medical Center, Emerita
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Transfusion-transmitted infections and donor screening for infectious diseases. National policies for blood banks. Enhancement of transfusion safety and effectiveness, with a focus on quality assurance in blood banking and transfusion therapy; transfusion medicine education; pediatric and adult transfusion therapy.
Stephen J. Galli, MD
The Mary Hewitt Loveless, M.D. Professor in the School of Medicine and Professor of Pathology and of Microbiology and Immunology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The goals of Dr. Galli's laboratory are to understand the regulation of mast cell and basophil development and function, and to develop and use genetic approaches to elucidate the roles of these cells in health and disease. We study both the roles of mast cells, basophils, and IgE in normal physiology and host defense, e.g., in responses to parasites and in enhancing resistance to venoms, and also their roles in pathology, e.g., anaphylaxis, food allergy, and asthma, both in mice and humans.
Sanjiv Sam Gambhir, MD, PhD
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My laboratory focuses on merging advances in molecular biology with those in biomedical imaging to advance the field of molecular imaging. Imaging for the purpose of better understanding cancer biology and applications in gene and cell therapy, as well as immunotherapy are all being studied. A key long-term focus is the earlier detection of cancer by combining in vitro diagnostics and molecular imaging.

Kristen N Ganjoo
Associate Professor of Medicine (Oncology) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Giant cell tumor of the bone
Gastrointestinal stromal tumors
Soft tissue sarcoma
Clinical Professor, Pediatrics - Infectious Diseases
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The focus of my laboratory is the immune response to viral vaccines evaluating the ontogeny of responses in infants and limitations in immunocompromised hosts. We have studied responses to an early two-dose measles immunization, one versus 2 doses of varicella immunization, and polio vaccine in preterm versus term infants. Other active areas of research include measles and varicella immunity in HIV infected individuals, and transplant recipients.

Henry J. Kaiser Jr. Professor and Professor of Medicine, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Topics in the health economics of aging; health, insurance; optimal screening intervals; cost-effectiveness of, coronary surgery in the elderly; health care financing and delivery, in the United States and Japan; coronary heart disease
Younger Family Professor and Professor of Structural Biology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Structural and functional studies of transmembrane receptor interactions with their ligands in systems relevant to human health and disease - primarily in immunity, infection, and neurobiology. We study these problems using protein engineering, structural, biochemical, and combinatorial biology approaches.
Gabriel Garcia, MD
Professor of Medicine (Gastroenterology and Hepatology) at the Stanford University Medical Center, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The natural history of common viral liver diseases of man is poorly understood, despite the fact that chronic liver diseases of man may result in death from liver failure or hepatocellular carcinoma.
