Assistant Professor of Medicine (Infectious Diseases) and, by courtesy, of Health Research and Policy (Epidemiology)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsOur laboratory aims to develop and test innovative approaches to the diagnosis, treatment and control of infectious diseases in resource-limited settings. We draw upon multiple fields including mathematical modeling, microbial genetics, field epidemiology, statistical inference and biodesign to work on challenging problems in infectious diseases, with an emphasis on tuberculosis and tropical diseases.

Professor (Research) of Health Research and Policy, Emeritus
BioI received my PhD. in Mathematical Statistics in 1967. I joined the research community at the Stanford University School of Medicine, Division of Immunology & Rheumatology, in 1984 as head statistician directing the biostatistics consulting and analytic support of the Arthritis Rheumatism Aging Medical Information System (ARAMIS) and Multipurpose Arthritis Center (MAC) grant-related research programs. In 1993 I was appointed Associate Professor with a joint appointment in the Departments of Medicine and of Health Research & Policy, and am currently Professor of Biostatistics at Stanford University, emeritus since 2007. My contributions to the statistics literature span numerous fields, including methods of sample size estimation, efficiency and bias of estimators, research methods for kappa statistics, non-parametric classification methods and methods of assessing multi-parameter endpoints. I have over 200 peer-reviewed publications. I have been directly involved with the development of numerous criteria rules for classification of diseases and with establishing guidelines for clinical trial research and in proposing responder criteria for osteoarthritis drugs. Since 1987, I have been a consultant on an ad hoc basis to pharmaceutical and biotechnical firms, including both start-up and established companies. I have extensive experience with devices, drugs and biologics and have participated in all aspects of applying statistics to implement investigational plans; e.g.: for protocol development, design of trials, database design. I’ve been a member of the FDA Statistical Advisors Panel, the statistical member on numerous data safety monitoring boards, and frequently represent companies at meetings with the FDA
M. Kate Bundorf
Associate Professor of Health Research and Policy (Health Services Research), Senior Fellow at the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research and Associate Professor, by courtesy, of Political Economics at the GSB
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsProfessor Bundorf's research focuses on health insurance markets including the determinants and effects of individual and purchaser choices, the effects of regulation in insurance markets, the interaction of public and private systems of health insurance, incentives for insurers to improve health care quality and the organization of provider markets.
Professor (Research) of Pediatrics (Neonatology) and, by courtesy, of Health Research and Policy (Epidemiology)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsOur research focuses on epidemiologic studies related to maternal and child health. Current projects address congenital anomalies of craniofacial, urogenital, musculoskeletal and central nervous system structures and how they relate to genetics, nutrition, stress, and environmental contaminants. Physiologic pathways encompassed by these studies include one-carbon metabolism, oxidative stress, HPA axis activation, and sex steroid metabolism. In particular, we are interested in discovering how environmental factors and genetic susceptibility may interact to affect these pathways and impact risks of these outcomes. Other active projects include investigations into the etiology of preterm delivery and stillbirth, and factors affecting the care and outcomes of infants with birth defects.
