Current Research and Scholarly Interests Kari Nadeau, MD, PhD, Allergy, Immunology and Asthma
Our research interests in the laboratory focus on the role of human T cells, specifically natural regulatory T cells (Treg, in immunological diseases. We aim to differentiate the mechanisms of action of regulatory T cell suppressive function. We study how pollution, such as diesel exhause, disrupt Treg suppressive function and how chemokines, like lymphotactin, enhance Treg suppressive function. We also study Treg function in tolerance.
Professor of Radiology (Integrative Biomedical Imaging Informatics) and, by courtesy, of Medicine (Medical Informatics) and of Electrical Engineering
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research seeks to advance the clinical and basic sciences in radiology, while improving our understanding of biology and the manifestations of disease, by pioneering methods in the information sciences that integrate imaging, clinical and molecular data. A current focus is on content-based radiological image retrieval and integration of imaging features with clinical and molecular data for diagnostic, prognostic, and therapy planning decision support.
Professor of Medicine (Cardiovascular Medicine) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Narayan directs the Computational Arrhythmia Research Laboratory, whose goal is to define the mechanisms underlying complex human heart rhythm disorders, to develop bioengineering-focused solutions to improve therapy that will be tested in clinical trials. The laboratory has been funded continuously since 2001 by the National Institutes of Health, AHA and ACC, and interlinks a disease-focused group of clinicians, computational physicists, bioengineers and trialists.
Joel Neal, MD, PhD
Associate Professor of Medicine (Oncology) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am a thoracic oncologist who cares for patients with non-small cell lung cancer, malignant mesothelioma, and other thoracic malignancies. I design and conduct clinical trials of novel therapies in collaboration with other researchers and pharmaceutical companies. These generally focus on two areas, 1) targeted therapies against particular mutations in cancers (for example EGFR, ALK, ROS1, HER2, KRAS, MET, and others) and 2) the emerging field of immunotherapy in cancer, using anti PD-1/PD-L1 therapies in combination with other agents, and also developing cellular therapies. I also collaborate with other researchers on campus to apply emerging technologies to cancer therapy, for example, circulating tumor DNA detection. Additionally, in my role as the Cancer Center IT Medical Director, I coordinate projects relating to our use of the electronic health record to improve provider efficiency and facilitate patient care.
Professor of Medicine (Blood and Marrow Transplantation)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our labaratory focuses on the study of immune recognition by T and NK cells with special emphasis on graft vs host disease and graft vs tumor reactions. We utilize both murine and human systems in an effort to enhance graft vs tumor reactions while controlling graft vs host disease. We have developed bioluminescence models in collaboration with the Contag laboratory to study the trafficking of immune effector cells with a special emphasis on NK, T and regulatory T cells.

Duy T Nguyen
Clinical Associate Professor, Medicine - Cardiovascular Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The long-term goals of my translational research are to evaluate novel radiofrequency (RF) ablation strategies, catheter designs to improve procedural efficacy and safety outcomes, and molecular targets to enhance RF ablation of atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia. We have translational and clinical studies on multiple ablation catheter designs as well as ablation strategies to improve safety and maximize RF delivery during ablation for atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia. We have both in vivo and ex vivo animal models (small and large animal) of atrial and ventricular arrhythmias.
At the translational level, our ablation biophysics studies include utilizing various nanomaterials to help facilitate ablation as well as designing specialized catheters to improve safety and efficacy of ablation. We are studying specific variations in catheter design to improve ablation; testing delivery methods of facilitating agents; optimizing biophysical parameters; determining the precise RF electromagnetic field to minimize collateral damage; and studying magnetic driven facilitating agents.
At the clinical level, my research has focused on the application of biophysical principles to AF and VT ablation outcomes, in addition to research related to adult congenital heart disease. Projects include a multicenter consortium on the use of EP studies in risk stratification of sudden death for Tetralogy of Fallot (ToF) patients undergoing pulmonary valve replacement; perioperative EP studies and VT ablation in ToF patients; outcomes in multicenter cohorts of ACHD patients undergoing AF and VT ablations; and outcomes in ACHD subpopulations undergoing EP procedures, such as those with bicuspid aortic valves, right atrial myopathies, and others.
Clinical Associate Professor, Medicine - Gastroenterology & Hepatology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interests focus on disorder of gastrointestinal motility. Specifically, those related to nausea and vomiting with or without gastroparesis, irritable bowel syndrome and chronic abdominal pain. My research focuses on understanding the cause of symptoms and development of new treatments targeting either symptom control and disease modification.
