Joanna Badger, MD
Clinical Professor, Dermatology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI have trained in both Genito-Urinary Medicine (UK) and Dermatology. This has allowed me to develop a specialty clinic for the diagnosis and management of genital skin disorders. The rest of the time, I see individuals with general dermatology issues.
Elizabeth E. Bailey, MD MPH
Clinical Assistant Professor, Dermatology
BioDr. Elizabeth Bailey is a Clinical Assistant Professor of Dermatology at Stanford and acts as Associate Program Director for the Stanford Dermatology Residency Program and Director of Global Health Dermatology.
Dr. Bailey graduated magna cum laude from Harvard University and received her medical degree from Columbia University in New York, where she was a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha honor society. She completed her internship in internal medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, and completed both her residency in dermatology and fellowship in dermatopathology at Stanford University Medical Center. She is board certified in dermatology and dermatopathology by the American Boards of Dermatology/Pathology.
Dr. Bailey's academic interests include medical education, community outreach, global health, and skin cancer detection and prevention.

BioI’ve had a longstanding interest in the signaling events that drive organogenesis and tissue homeostasis. In mammals, the neurosensory cells of the inner ear that detect sound, gravity and acceleration have extremely low regenerative capacity, making the developmental processes that control their number, location, and function incredibly important. As a graduate student this lead me to study how inner ear progenitor cells are specified in response to Hedgehog and Wnt signaling pathways. Both the Hedgehog and Wnt cell signaling pathways are used iteratively during development to pattern many tissues and damage to either pathway frequently results in birth defects or cancer. Since the same signals are used repeated for different outcomes in a context dependent manner, my postdoctoral studies initially focused on determining how Hedgehog target genes are selected in a developmental system, the postnatal proliferation of cerebellar granule neuron progenitor cells. Later in my postdoc my research interests shifted and I focused on the function of the Hedgehog target gene Missing-in-Metastasis (Mtss1) in coupling the cell membrane and cytoskeleton on neurons. Mtss1 can function as a docking site for regulatory kinases and phosphatases to control the local actin cytoskeleton and regulate the localization of membrane proteins. This process is key for cerebellar Purkinje neuron function and survival and may underlie several distinct neurodegenerative diseases.
