  • James K. Chen

    James K. Chen

    Jauch Professor and Professor of Chemical and Systems Biology, of Developmental Biology and of Chemistry

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsOur laboratory combines chemistry and developmental biology to investigate the molecular events that regulate embryonic patterning, tissue regeneration, and tumorigenesis. We are currently using genetic and small-molecule approaches to study the molecular mechanisms of Hedgehog signaling, and we are developing chemical technologies to perturb and observe the genetic programs that underlie vertebrate development.

  • Michelle M. Chen, MD, MHS

    Michelle M. Chen, MD, MHS

    Assistant Professor of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery (OHNS)

    BioDr. Chen is a fellowship-trained head and neck surgical oncologist with a board certification in otolaryngology and an assistant professor with the Stanford School of Medicine Department of Otolaryngology.

    Her practice focuses on the treatment of cancers that affect the head and neck. She has received additional training in microvascular reconstruction and transoral robotic surgery.

    Dr. Chen has an active lab involved in head and neck cancer health services research and her work has appeared in numerous journals, including The Journal of the American Medical Association, Cancer, Journal of the National Cancer Institute, and Journal of Clinical Oncology. She has also authored chapters in textbooks on head and neck cancer treatment.

    Dr. Chen is a member of the American Academy of Otolaryngology—Head & Neck Surgery (AAOHNS) and the American Head & Neck Society.

  • Yiyun Chen

    Yiyun Chen

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Stanford Cancer Center

    BioYiyun Chen, Ph.D. is a Postdoctoral Fellow at Professor Crystal Mackall’s group at Stanford Cancer Institute.

    Dr. Chen studied biochemistry and structural biology in her undergraduate and master trainings at The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, where she eventually obtained her Ph.D. degree in computational biology under the supervision of Professor Jiguang Wang. During her Ph.D. training, she has developed her skill sets in analyzing and integrating various types of patient-derived sequencing data, published three first-author and four co-author papers, and received two awards for top postgraduate students. Through interdisciplinary collaborations with cancer biologist and clinicians in US and Asia, her work has uncovered tumor-specific immune cell subtypes and novel noncoding RNAs and generated new insights into precision medicine in glioma, lymphoma and gastric cancer.

    Applying her expertise in computational cancer biology and immunology, her current research is focused on identifying molecular mechanisms that contribute to the clinical outcomes of patients undergoing CAR-T immunotherapy. At Mackall Lab, she will contribute to tailoring computational pipelines for profiling the spatiotemporal dynamics of the tumor and immune microenvironment and translate new discoveries into cancer therapeutics.

  • Alan G. Cheng, MD

    Alan G. Cheng, MD

    Edward C. and Amy H. Sewall Professor in the School of Medicine, Professor of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery (OHNS) and, by courtesy, of Pediatrics

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsActive Wnt signaling maintains somatic stem cells in many organ systems. Using Wnt target genes as markers, we have characterized distinct cell populations with stem cell behavior in the inner ear, an organ thought to be terminally differentiated. Ongoing work focuses on delineating the developing significance of these putative stem/progenitor cells and their behavior after damage.

  • Athena Cherry

    Athena Cherry

    Member, Stanford Cancer Institute

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsThe use of molecular and molecular cytogenetic methods to identify chromosomal abnormalities in acquired and congenital disorders.

  • Ramsey Cheung

    Ramsey Cheung

    Professor of Medicine (Gastroenterology and Hepatology)

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsDr. Cheung's research interests focus on liver diseases, with emphasis on viral hepatitis. His past research include investigating the mechanism of viral neutralization of hepatitis B virus at the molecular level and immune response to hepatitis C virus. Dr. Cheung is studing various aspects of hepatitis C, both clinical and translational research.
