Harry B Greenberg
Director, Spectrum, Senior Associate Dean, Research, The Joseph D. Grant Professor in the School of Medicine and Professor of Microbiology and Immunology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMolecular mechanisms of pathogenesis; determinants of protective immunity; host range and tissue tropism in liver and GI tract pathogenic viruses and studies of vaccines in people.
Sanjiv Sam Gambhir, MD, PhD
Virginia and D.K. Ludwig Professor for Clinical Investigation in Cancer Research and Professor, by courtesy, of Bioengineering and of Materials Science and Engineering
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy laboratory focuses on merging advances in molecular biology with those in biomedical imaging to advance the field of molecular imaging. Imaging for the purpose of better understanding cancer biology and applications in gene and cell therapy, as well as immunotherapy are all being studied. A key long-term focus is the earlier detection of cancer by combining in vitro diagnostics and molecular imaging.
Associate Professor of Radiation Oncology (Radiation Physics) and, by courtesy, of Radiology (Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsApplications of molecular imaging in radiation therapy, development of hypoxia and radiosensitivity imaging techniques, small animal image-guided conformal radiotherapy, image processing and analysis.
Iris C. Gibbs, MD, FACR
Professor of Radiation Oncology (Radiation Therapy) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsDr. Gibbs is a board-certified radiation oncologist who specializes in the treatment of CNS tumors. Her research focuses on developing new radiation techniques to manage brain and spinal tumors in adults and children. Dr. Gibbs has gained worldwide acclaim for her expertise in Cyberknife robotic radiosurgery.
Professor of Medicine (Hematology) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy research interests include phase I/II clinical trial evaluation of novel therapies for the following diseases:
--Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS)
--Chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML)
--Acute myelogenous leukemia (AML)
--Myeloproliferative disorders (MPDs) including:
Rehnborg Farquhar Professor
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsThe role of nutrition in individual and societal health, with particular interests in: plant-based diets, differential response to low-carb vs. low-fat weight loss diets by insulin resistance status, chronic disease prevention, randomized controlled trials, human nutrition, community based studies, Community Based Participatory Research, sustainable food movement (animal rights and welfare, global warming, human labor practices), stealth health, nutrition policy, nutrition guidelines
Amato J. Giaccia
Jack, Lulu and Sam Willson Professor, Professor of Radiation Oncology, and by courtesy, of Obstetrics and Gynecology and of Surgery
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsDuring the last five years, we have identified several small molecules that kill VHL deficient renal cancer cells through a synthetic lethal screening approach. Another major interest of my laboratory is in identifying hypoxia-induced genes involved in invasion and metastases. We are also investigating how hypoxia regulates gene expression epigenetically.
Professor of Radiology (General Radiology) and, by courtesy, of Psychology and of Electrical Engineering
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsThe work in the Radiological Sciences Laboratory is devoted to the advancement of imaging sciences for applications in diagnostic radiology. We collaborate closely with departmental clinicians and with others in the school of medicine, humanities, and the engineering sciences. The laboratory's activities include development of both CT and MR imaging techniques, with spiral CT.
Kathryn Simmons Stamey Professor
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsBenign Prostatic Hyperplasia- Evaluation and development of new minimally invasive techniques
Endourology: developing, designing and evaluating new instruments
Bladder cancer: outcomes of treatment
BPH: cryotherapy and HIFU
Professor of Medicine (Hematology), Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsRegulation of hematopoiesis in myeloid malignancies with special emphasis on myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) and acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Laboratory studies utilize DNA microarrays to determine differential gene expression in MDS and AML. Transcriptomic abnormalities are also being evaluated using RNA-Seq and proteomic technologies. Translational clinical studies focus on using specific biologic targeting agents to treat these disorders.
