  • Helio Costa

    Helio Costa

    Adjunct Clinical Assistant Professor, Pathology

    BioHelio Costa, PhD, is a medical geneticist with expertise in oncology, medical genetics and genomics, computational biology, data science, software engineering, and product development. He is passionate about leveraging his interdisciplinary skillset to build and develop commercial-grade cancer diagnostic products and medical software that aid in patient care and clinical decision support. Currently he is Medical Director of Oncology at Natera, and an Adjunct Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Pathology at Stanford Medical School.

    Dr. Costa's research focuses on developing and implementing new medical diagnostic genetic tests and software for use in patient care. His research group developed DNA and RNA cancer diagnostic tests currently in use at Stanford Health Care as well as developing clinical algorithms using large-scale clinical laboratory datasets and patient electronic medical records to predict patient outcomes and aid in therapeutic clinical decision support. Additionally, Dr. Costa served as a co-Investigator in the NIH Clinical Genome Resource (ClinGen) Consortium, and led the engineering and product management teams developing FDA-recognized medical software applications used by healthcare providers, researchers, and biotechnology companies to define the clinical relevance of genes and pathogenicity of mutations identified in patients.

    Dr. Costa is the founding director of the Stanford Clinical Data Science Fellowship where post-doctoral fellows engage in interdisciplinary clinical research and embed in health care workflows learning, building and deploying real-world health data solutions in the Stanford Health Care system. He is currently an Attending Medical Geneticist for the Molecular Genetic Pathology Laboratory at Stanford Health Care where he previously served as an Assistant Lab Director.

    Dr. Costa received his BS in Genetics from University of California at Davis, his PhD in Genetics from Stanford University School of Medicine, and his ABMGG Clinical Molecular Genetics and Genomics fellowship training from Stanford University School of Medicine.

  • Jacquelyn Nicole Crane

    Jacquelyn Nicole Crane

    Clinical Assistant Professor, Pediatrics - Hematology & Oncology

    BioDr. Jacquelyn Crane is a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Pediatric Hematology Oncology division at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, Stanford University School of Medicine. She received her undergraduate degree from Dartmouth College. She then conducted laboratory-based genetics research for two years in the Pauls lab at Massachusetts General Hospital. She received her medical degree from Tufts University School of Medicine and completed her pediatrics residency and pediatric hematology/oncology fellowship training at University of California Los Angeles. As a pediatric hematology & oncology fellow, she engaged in computational analysis of osteosarcoma transcriptomic data in the Graeber Lab and completed a medical education fellowship certificate program. Her primary clinical and research interests include sarcomas and other solid tumors, cancer genomics, clinical trials and medical education. She is the associate program director of the pediatric hematology-oncology fellowship.

  • Alia Crum

    Alia Crum

    Associate Professor of Psychology

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsOur lab focuses on how subjective mindsets (e.g., thoughts, beliefs and expectations) can alter objective reality through behavioral, psychological, and physiological mechanisms. We are interested in understanding how mindsets affect important outcomes both within and beyond the realm of medicine, in the domains such as exercise, diet and stress. https://mbl.stanford.edu/

  • Agnieszka Czechowicz

    Agnieszka Czechowicz

    Assistant Professor of Pediatrics (Stem Cell Transplantation)

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsDr. Czechowicz’s research is aimed at understanding how hematopoietic stem cells interact with their microenvironment in order to subsequently modulate these interactions to improve bone marrow transplantation and unlock biological secrets that further enable regenerative medicine broadly. This work can be applied across a variety of disease states ranging from rare genetic diseases, autoimmune diseases, solid organ transplantation, microbiome-augmentation and cancer.
