Assistant Professor of Biochemistry
BioDr. Li is an assistant professor in the Biochemistry Department and ChEM-H Institute at Stanford since 2015. Her lab works on understanding biochemical mechanisms of innate immunity and harnessing it to treat cancer. She majored in chemistry at University of Science and Technology of China and graduated with a B. En in 2003. She then trained with Dr. Laura Kiessling, a pioneer in chemical biology, at University of Wisconsin-Madison and graduated with a Ph.D in chemistry in 2010. She obtained her postdoctoral training with Dr. Timothy Mitchison at Harvard Medical School, who introduced her to the field of chemical immunology.
Associate Professor of Neurobiology, of Bioengineering and, by courtesy, of Chemical and Systems Biology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsOur lab applies biochemical and engineering principles to the development of protein-based tools for molecular imaging and gene therapy. Topics of investigation include fluorescent proteins structure and biophysics, fluorescent protein-based biosensors, spatiotemporal analysis of protein translation pathways, chemical control of protein translation, and light-responsive proteins.
Kyle M. Loh
Assistant Professor of Developmental Biology (Stem Cell)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsWe have developed a strategy to generate fairly pure populations of various human tissue progenitors in a dish from embryonic stem cells (ESCs). We have delineated the sequential lineage steps through which ESCs diversify into various tissues, and in so doing, developed methods to exclusively induce certain fates at the expense of others. The resultant pure populations of tissue progenitors are the fundamental building blocks for regenerative medicine.

Assistant Professor of Pathology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMammalian metabolic homeostasis is a tightly regulated process that affects nearly all aspects of organismal physiology. A key aspect of metabolic homeostasis is the coordinated response of multiple tissues to changes in energy supply or energy demand. We are interested in understanding the biochemical signaling pathways that orchestrate these responses. We focus on chemical messengers, a fundamental class of endogenous molecules that mediate intercellular and inter-organ communication. Our studies have applications to diseases associated with dysfunctional metabolic homeostasis, including obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, neurodegeneration, and certain cancers.

Deane P. and Louise Mitchell Professor in the School of Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsWe have six main areas of current interest: 1) Cranial Suture Developmental Biology, 2)Distraction Osteogenesis, 3) Cleft Palate and Lip Biology, 4)Keloid and Hypertrophic Scar Biology, 5) Scarless Fetal Wound Healing, 6) Novel Gene and Stem Cell Therapeutic Approaches.
Anson Lowe, MD
Associate Professor of Medicine (Gastroenterology and Hepatology)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsThe laboratory is focused on the relationship between injury, wound healing, and cancer. Esophageal, gastric, and pancreatic cancers are a focus. We are particularly interested in the regulation of cell signaling by EGFR, the EGF receptor. In addition to cancer pathogenesis, active projects include the development of new diagnostic assays and drugs.
