Associate Professor of Pediatrics (Hematology/Oncology)
BioOur lab works at the interface of biotechnology, computational biology, cellular biology, and clinical medicine to develop and apply new tools for characterizing genetic variation across single cells within a tissue with unparalleled sensitivity and accuracy. We are focused on applying these technologies to study cancer clonal evolution while patients are undergoing treatment with the aim of identifying cancer clonotypes that are associated with resistance to specific drugs so as to better understand and predict treatment response. We are also applying these methods to understand how more virulent pathogens emerge from a population of bacteria or viruses with an emphasis on developing a deeper understanding of how antibiotic resistance develops.

BioDr. Anju Goyal is a pediatric hematology oncology fellow physician at Stanford University School of Medicine. She received her undergraduate degree from the University of Chicago. She then served as an AmeriCorps member with City Year Chicago, fostering her dual interests in community advocacy and education. She went on to receive her medical degree from the David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles and to complete her pediatrics residency at Stanford University School of Medicine.
During her research time as a pediatric hematology oncology fellow, Dr. Goyal has pursued a Master's degree in the Community Health and Prevention Program at Stanford University. She sought this additional research training to learn how to parter effectively with communities to achieve health equity. Specifically, her primary research project has utilized the principles of community based participatory research to partner with a local organization, Jacob's Heart, and to understand the financial burden of childhood cancer for Latinx families. Additionally, she has honed a skill set in medical education and is conducting research on how to promote well being for pediatric hematology oncology fellows.
