    Susan Galel

    Associate Professor of Pathology at the Stanford University Medical Center, Emerita

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsTransfusion-transmitted infections and donor screening for infectious diseases. National policies for blood banks. Enhancement of transfusion safety and effectiveness, with a focus on quality assurance in blood banking and transfusion therapy; transfusion medicine education; pediatric and adult transfusion therapy.

  • Stephen J. Galli, MD

    Stephen J. Galli, MD

    Mary Hewitt Loveless, MD, Professor in the School of Medicine and Professor of Pathology and of Microbiology and Immunology

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsThe goals of Dr. Galli's laboratory are to understand the regulation of mast cell and basophil development and function, and to develop and use genetic approaches to elucidate the roles of these cells in health and disease. We study both the roles of mast cells, basophils, and IgE in normal physiology and host defense, e.g., in responses to parasites and in enhancing resistance to venoms, and also their roles in pathology, e.g., anaphylaxis, food allergy, and asthma, both in mice and humans.

  • Alin Lucian Girnita

    Alin Lucian Girnita

    Clinical Professor, Pathology

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy research interest involves the allo-immune response in transplantation, markers of antibody-mediated rejection, influence of various therapeutic protocols on desensitization and allo-immune response, structural matching and genetic polymorphism in transplantation.

  • Alex Gitlin

    Alex Gitlin

    Instructor, Pathology

    BioAlex Gitlin, M.D., Ph.D. is an Instructor in the Department of Pathology at Stanford University School of Medicine. Prior to Stanford, Alex received his M.D. from Weill Cornell Medicine (2017) and his Ph.D. from Rockefeller University (2016) as part of the Weill Cornell/Sloan-Kettering/Rockefeller, Tri-Institutional M.D.-Ph.D. program. During his graduate training, Alex worked on the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying germinal center reactions and the formation of long-lived humoral immunity. His work helped elucidate the mechanisms by which CD4+ T cells induce selective clonal expansion of germinal center B cells during immune responses. Currently, Alex's clinical and research interests lie in understanding the molecular basis of inflammatory immune responses in the context of normal and genetically immunodeficient states.

  • Dita Gratzinger

    Dita Gratzinger

    Associate Professor of Pathology

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI have research interests in the interaction of hematolymphoid neoplasia with the microenvironment. For example, I use a combination of immunohistochemistry, immunofluorescence and image analysis techniques to evaluate the mesenchymal stromal cell compartment in myelodysplastic syndrome (pre-leukemic bone marrow failure disorder). I also have interests in lymphoma vasculature and the tropism of lymphoma for specific types of vasculature.

  • Wei Gu

    Wei Gu

    Assistant Professor of Pathology

    BioWei Gu, MD, PhD, is Assistant Professor of Pathology at Stanford University was trained as a physician, engineer, and scientist. He is a leader and pioneered new technologies in cell-free DNA 'liquid biopsy' diagnostics, microfluidics, and clinical metagenomic sequencing across diverse fields, including prenatal diagnostics, infectious disease, metagenomics, oncology, CRISPR diagnostics, and COVID diagnostics. His research group seeks to maximize the diagnostic potential from this data obtained through minimally invasive or non-invasive sampling. We will engineer the necessary tools to digitize nucleic acids into useful diagnostic content. He has been awarded multiple extramural grants, including the Burroughs Wellcome Career Award, and a K08 from the National Cancer Institute. He is also a board-certified molecular and clinical pathologist and has a clinical practice within Stanford Healthcare.
