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.
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.

Current Research and Scholarly InterestsHeat transfer in electronic nanostructures, energy conversion devices, microfluidic heat exchangers, and compact biological systems. At the nanoscale, we study thermal transport properties of thin films and nanostructures including thermoelectric converters and nanostransistors. At the microscale there is much interest in microfluidic heat exchangers involving phase change. At the milliscale there is an emphasis on electronic packaging materials including those for smart phones and tablets.
Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering and, by courtesy, of Materials Science and Engineering
BioThe Gu Group studies the mechanical behavior of nanomaterials. We work at the intersection of solid mechanics, materials science and nano-chemistry. We research the unique properties of nanoscale metals, ceramics and nano-architected composites in order to design strong, tough and lightweight structural materials, materials for extreme environments, and mechanically-actuated sensors. Our experimental tools include nanoindentation, electron microscopy, and colloidal synthesis.
Johnson & Johnson Professor of Surgery and Professor, by courtesy, of Bioengineering and of Materials Science and Engineering
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsGeoffrey Gurtner's Lab is interested in understanding the mecahnism of new blood vessel growth following injury and how pathways of tissue regeneration and fibrosis interact in wound healing.
