Sanjiv Sam Gambhir, MD, PhD
Virginia and D.K. Ludwig Professor for Clinical Investigation in Cancer Research and Professor, by courtesy, 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.

Grace X. Gao
Assistant Professor of Aeronautics and Astronautics and, by courtesy, of Electrical Engineering
BioGrace X. Gao is an assistant professor in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at Stanford University. She leads the Navigation and Autonomous Vehicles Laboratory (NAV Lab) at Stanford. Before joining Stanford University, she was an assistant professor at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She obtained her Ph.D. degree at Stanford University. Her research is on robust and secure positioning, navigation and timing with applications to manned and unmanned aerial vehicles, autonomous driving cars and robotics.
Prof. Gao has won a number of awards, including the NSF CAREER Award, the Institute of Navigation Early Achievement Award and RTCA William E. Jackson Award. She received Distinguished Promotion Award from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2019. She has won Best Paper/Presentation of the Session Awards 15 times at ION GNSS+ conferences. She received the Dean's Award for Excellence in Research from the College of Engineering, University of Illinois in 2017. For her teaching, Prof. Gao has been on the List of Teachers Ranked as Excellent by Their Students at University of Illinois multiple times. She won the College of Engineering Everitt Award for Teaching Excellence in 2015, AIAA Illinois Chapter’s Teacher of the Year in 2016, and the Engineering Council Award for Excellence in Advising in 2017 and 2018.
Associate Professor of Computer Science
BioGenesereth is best known for his work on computational logic and applications of that work in enterprise management and electronic commerce. Basic research interests include knowledge representation, automated reasoning, and rational action. Current projects include logical spreadsheets, data, and service integration on the World Wide Web, and computational law.
Physical Science Research Scientist
BioWill Gent received his BA in Chemistry from Cornell in 2013, where he worked with Prof. Geoff Coates to develop new polymer electrolytes for lithium ion batteries. He received his MS and PhD from Stanford in 2019, where he worked with Prof. Will Chueh using advanced X-ray and electrochemical techniques to study redox and degradation mechanisms in lithium ion battery cathode materials. Will is now a staff scientist within the Stanford StorageX initiative, an industrial affiliates program that coordinates interdisciplinary, application-driven research in energy storage. He currently leads several research projects aimed at improving the performance and cost of lithium ion batteries through materials engineering and the use of data-driven approaches to accelerate testing, optimization, and validation of new energy storage concepts.
J. Christian Gerdes
Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Senior Fellow at the Precourt Institute for Energy
BioChris Gerdes is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University and Co-Director of the Center for Automotive Research at Stanford (CARS). His laboratory studies how cars move, how humans drive cars and how to design future cars that work cooperatively with the driver or drive themselves. When not teaching on campus, he can often be found at the racetrack with students, trying out their latest prototypes for the future. Vehicles in the lab include X1, an entirely student-built test vehicle; Niki, a Volkswagen GTI capable of turning a competitive lap time around the track without a human driver; and Marty, our electrified, automated, drifting DeLorean. Chris' interests in vehicle safety extend to ethics and government policy, having helped to develop the US Federal Automated Vehicle Policy while serving as the first Chief Innovation Officer of the US Department of Transportation.
