Donna M. Bouley
Professor of Comparative Medicine and, by courtesy, of Pathology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsResearch interests: ocular pathology, host-pathogen interactions in infectious disease, infectious disease in frogs, phenotypic characterization of tg and ko mice, histopathology of minimally-invasive radiological ablation techniques (focused ultrasound, cryoablation).
Paul Buckmaster, DVM, PhD
Professor of Comparative Medicine and of Neurology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMechanisms of epilepsy, especially temporal lobe epilepsy.
Thomas L. Cherpes
Assistant Professor of Comparative Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsConducts basic, translational, and clinical research exploring host defense against cancer and microbial pathogens. Specific focus on: 1) effects of exogenous sex steroids on basic mechanisms of anti-virus host defense; 2) role of Type 2 immunity as defense against Chlamydia trachomatis infection; and 3) developing cellular immunotherapies to combat infectious disease and cancer
Linda C. Cork
Professor of Comparative Medicine, Emerita
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy research interests focus on inherited neurologic disease in animals and on animal models of aging and neurodegerative diseases such as Motor Neuron Disease (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or Lou Gehrig's disease) and Alzheimer's disease.
Associate Professor of Comparative Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy lab looks at the organization and function of central neural pathways that underlie directed manual behavior. We are specifically interested in how these pathways adapt following injury, and use a combination of approaches in monkeys to identify mechanisms mediating neural reorganization and behavioral recovery.
Associate Professor of Comparative Medicine at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsHis research interests include infectious diseases, particularly zoonoses, and exploring techniques which promote the health and welfare of laboratory animals.
Associate Professor of Comparative Medicine and, by courtesy, of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsThe medical research community has long recognized that good well-being is good science. The lab uses an integrated interdisciplinary approach to explore this interface, while providing tangible deliverables for the well-being of human patients and research animals.
Sherril L. Green, DVM, PhD
Professor of Comparative Medicine at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsResearch Interests: Xenopus laevis. Husbandry, biology, infectious and parasitic diseases of laboratory Xenopus laevis. Large animal models of disease.
Professor of Comparative Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsThe main interest of my lab is to understand how the properties of neocortical neurons, the circuits they form and the inputs they receive give rise to neuronal activity and behavior. Our approach includes behavioral studies, two-photon calcium imaging, in vivo whole cell recording in behaving animals and optogenetic methods to activate or to silence the activity of cortical neurons.
