John V. Gahagan, MD, FACS, FASCRS
Clinical Assistant Professor, Surgery - General Surgery
BioJohn Gahagan, MD is a Clinical Assistant Professor of Surgery in the Section of Colorectal Surgery. He has training in advanced minimally invasive surgical techniques including robotic and laparoscopic surgery. He has authored several textbook chapters and original articles in peer-reviewed journals. His clinical practice is focused on the surgical treatment of colon and rectal cancers, inflammatory bowel disease (ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease), and benign colon and anorectal diseases (diverticulitis, hemorrhoids, fistulas, fissures). He believes in patient-centered care and multi-disciplinary approach to the treatment of diseases of the colon, rectum and anus. He joined Stanford in 2019 and is excited to build a Stanford colorectal surgery practice in the East Bay at Stanford Tri-Valley in Pleasanton and at Stanford Health Care – Emeryville.
Outside of his clinical practice, he is involved in surgical education and serves as an Associate Program Director of the Stanford General Surgery Residency Training Program as well as the Site Director for the Stanford Tri-Valley surgery rotation. He serves in various administrative roles, including as Chair of the Stanford Tri-Valley Operating Room Committee and a member of the Stanford Tri-Valley Medical Staff Quality Committee and the Stanford Medicine Partners Quality and Credentialing Committee.
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.
Kristin Galetta, MD
Clinical Assistant Professor, Neurology & Neurological Sciences
BioDr. Galetta is a board-certified neurologist within the Neurohospitalist and Neuroimmunology divisions. She completed a multiple sclerosis (MS) fellowship at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
She has extensive experience diagnosing and treating patients with autoimmune neurologic conditions including multiple sclerosis, optic neuritis, autoimmune encephalitis and transverse myelitis. Her research interests are focused on understanding best treatment strategies for patients with multiple sclerosis and more rare autoimmune neurologic conditions. She also has an interest in medical education improvement.
She has published in numerous peer-reviewed journals, including the Journal of Neurological Sciences and Multiple Sclerosis and Related Disorders. She is a peer reviewer for multiple prestigious journals, including Neurology and Frontiers in Neurology.
Clinical Assistant Professor, Emergency Medicine
BioMoises grew up in Southern California. He attended Harvard College where he studied Neurobiology and topics in Mind/Brain/Behavior. He earned his MD from Stanford School of Medicine and concurrently earned a Masters in Public Health from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. He completed residency and was Chief Resident at Baylor College of Medicine while working at Ben Taub General Hospital. He began his academic career as Assistant Professor in the Henry JN Taub Department of Emergency Medicine at Ben Taub and rejoined the Stanford Department of Emergency Medicine in 2019. He is the Clerkship Director for EMED301A, the required/core Emergency Medicine rotation. He is currently completing coursework to obtain his Master of Education in the Health Professions from Johns Hopkins University School of Education.
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.
Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery

Kristen N Ganjoo
Professor of Medicine (Oncology)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsGiant cell tumor of the bone
Gastrointestinal stromal tumors
Soft tissue sarcoma
Clinical Professor, Pediatrics - Infectious Diseases
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsThe focus of my laboratory is the immune response to viral vaccines evaluating the ontogeny of responses in infants and limitations in immunocompromised hosts. We have studied responses to an early two-dose measles immunization, one versus 2 doses of varicella immunization, and polio vaccine in preterm versus term infants. Other active areas of research include measles and varicella immunity in HIV infected individuals, and transplant recipients.
Assistant Professor of Biochemistry
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsNature has created many powerful biomolecules that are hidden in organisms across kingdoms of life. Many of these biomolecules originate from microbes, which contain the most diverse gene pool among living organisms. We are integrating high-throughput computational and experimental approaches to harness the vast diversity of genes in microbes to develop new antibiotics and molecular biotechnology, and to investigate the evolution of proteins and molecular mechanisms in innate immunity.
Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsHow do we design biological systems as “smart medicine” that sense patients’ states, process the information, and respond accordingly? To realize this vision, we will tackle fundamental challenges across different levels of complexity, such as (1) protein components that minimize their crosstalk with human cells and immunogenicity, (2) biomolecular circuits that function robustly in different cells and are easy to deliver, (3) multicellular consortia that communicate through scalable channels, and (4) therapeutic modules that interface with physiological inputs/outputs. Our engineering targets include biomolecules, molecular circuits, viruses, and cells, and our approach combines quantitative experimental analysis with computational simulation. The molecular tools we build will be applied to diverse fields such as neurobiology and cancer therapy.
