Harry B Greenberg
Director, Spectrum, Senior Associate Dean, Research, The Joseph D. Grant Professor in the School of Medicine and Professor of Microbiology and Immunology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMolecular mechanisms of pathogenesis; determinants of protective immunity; host range and tissue tropism in liver and GI tract pathogenic viruses and studies of vaccines in people.
Miriam B. Goodman
Professor of Molecular and Cellular Physiology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsWe study the molecular events that give rise to the sensation of touch and temperature in C. elegans. To do this, we use a combination of quantitative behavioral analysis, genetics, in vivo electrophysiology, and heterologous expression of ion channels. We also collaborate with Pruitt's group in Mechanical Engineering to develop and fabricate novel devices for the study of sensory transduction.
Sanjiv Sam Gambhir, MD, PhD
Virginia and D.K. Ludwig Professor for Clinical Investigation in Cancer Research and Professor, by courtesy, of Bioengineering and of Materials Science and Engineering
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy 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.
Associate Professor of Radiation Oncology (Radiation Physics) and, by courtesy, of Radiology (Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsApplications of molecular imaging in radiation therapy, development of hypoxia and radiosensitivity imaging techniques, small animal image-guided conformal radiotherapy, image processing and analysis.
Mary Kane Goldstein
Professor of Medicine (Center for Primary Care and Outcomes Research) and, by courtesy, of Health Research and Policy at the Palo Alto Veterans Affairs Health Care System
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsHealth services research in primary care and geriatrics: developing, implementing, and evaluating methods for clinical quality improvement. Current work includes applying health information technology to quality improvement through clinical decision support (CDS) integrated with electronic health records; encoding clinical knowledge into computable formats in automated knowledge bases; natural language processing of free text in electronic health records; analyzing multiple comorbidities
Professor of Otolaryngology, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMiddle ear mechanics, correction of hearing loss, development and evaluation of middle ear prosthesis; creative strategies for correcting various types of hearing loss using surgery in temporal bone models and humans. Research in new methods to surgically correct tongue collapse in sleep apnea. Research to improve facial muscle movement following facial nerve injury using surgical techniques.
Professor of Radiology (General Radiology) and, by courtesy, of Psychology and of Electrical Engineering
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsThe work in the Radiological Sciences Laboratory is devoted to the advancement of imaging sciences for applications in diagnostic radiology. We collaborate closely with departmental clinicians and with others in the school of medicine, humanities, and the engineering sciences. The laboratory's activities include development of both CT and MR imaging techniques, with spiral CT.
Professor of Medicine (Hematology), Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsRegulation of hematopoiesis in myeloid malignancies with special emphasis on myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) and acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Laboratory studies utilize DNA microarrays to determine differential gene expression in MDS and AML. Transcriptomic abnormalities are also being evaluated using RNA-Seq and proteomic technologies. Translational clinical studies focus on using specific biologic targeting agents to treat these disorders.
Ralph S. Greco, MD
Johnson and Johnson Professor of Surgery, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsApplication of Micro/Nanotechnology to Biological Systems.
Younger Family Professor and Professor of Structural Biology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsStructural 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.
