Linda N. Geng, MD, PhD
Clinical Assistant Professor, Medicine - Primary Care and Population Health
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy scholarly interests are focused on defining, studying, and improving patients' diagnostic journeys. What prolongs the journey to the correct diagnosis and how can we shorten it? With this question in mind, we are exploring crowdsourcing, informatics/AI, health data visualization, and advanced laboratory testing as ways to help tackle the toughest cases in medicine-- complex, rare, and mystery conditions.
With the COVID pandemic, the puzzling and complex illness of post-acute COVID-19 syndrome (PACS) or long COVID came to light. Together with a multidisciplinary group of physicians and researchers, we launched a program here at Stanford to advance the care and understanding of PACS. Our goal is to better understand the natural history, clinical symptomatology, immunological response, risk factors, and subgroup stratification for PACS. We are also actively assessing management strategies that may be effective for heterogeneous PACS symptoms.

Finally, Dr. Gerber’s research interests focus on optimizing cardiac intensive care, including working with the Critical Care Cardiology Trials Network (CCCTN), a national network of tertiary cardiac ICUs coordinated by the TIMI Study Group, and studying temporary mechanical circulatory support techniques, including extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), to improve patient outcomes.
Senior Associate Dean for Medical Education, George DeForest Barnett Founders Professor of Medicine and Professor (Teaching) of Medicine (Endocrinology)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsOur medical education research group is developing and validating the best educational practices to train competent, compassionate, and ethical physicians and physician-scientists. We are studying the use of standardized patients and other modalities to improve clinical skill training and reasoning. We are interested in applying the rigor of clinical investigation to education research.
My areas of clinical interest in endocrinology include disorders of the pituitary, thyroid, and gonad.
Associate Professor of Medicine (Biomedical Informatics) and of Biomedical Data Science
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy lab focuses on biomedical data fusion: the development of machine learning methods for biomedical decision support using multi-scale biomedical data. We primarily use methods based on regularized linear regression to accomplish this. We primarily focus on applications in oncology and neuroscience.
