Florette K. Gray Hazard
Associate Professor of Pathology and of Pediatrics
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy scholarly pursuits are primarily focused on the study of death and disease in the pediatric population. It is through this work that I am able to explore fundamental concepts of neoplasia, such as histogenesis and mutagenesis, while utilizing a variety of investigational techniques.

Marie Hollenhorst, MD, PhD
Clinical Instructor, Pathology
Clinical Instructor, Medicine - Hematology
BioDr. Hollenhorst is a physician and scientist with expertise in non-malignant hematology, transfusion medicine, and chemical biology. Dr. Hollenhorst values the one-on-one relationships that she forms with her patients, and strives to deliver the highest quality of care for individuals with blood diseases. Her experience caring for patients drives her to ask scientific questions in the laboratory, where she aims to bring a chemical approach to the study of non-malignant blood disease.
Dr. Hollenhorst pursued combined MD and PhD training at Harvard University, where she received a PhD in Chemical Biology under the mentorship of Professor Christopher T Walsh. She subsequently completed a residency in Internal Medicine at Brigham and Women's Hospital, a fellowship in Transfusion Medicine at Harvard Medical School, and a fellowship in Hematology at Stanford.
Dr. Hollenhorst has an interest in the biology of platelets, which are cellular fragments that help the blood to maintain a healthy balance between bleeding and clotting. Working in the laboratory of Professor Carolyn Bertozzi of Stanford Chemistry, Dr. Hollenhorst is studying sugar molecules found on the surface of platelets that are important in controlling their function and lifespan.
Dr. Hollenhorst's research is supported by an NIH K99 Career Pathway to Independence in Blood Science Award for Physician-Scientists, a Stanford Chemistry, Engineering & Medicine for Human Health Physician-Scientist Fellowship, and a National Blood Foundation Early-Career Scientific Research Grant.
Jody Elizabeth Hooper
Associate Professor of Pathology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI have a number of research interests associated with my autopsy work, including how the time interval between death and collection (the PMI) affects the condition and research viability of the collected tissue, how valuable blood and tissue cultures behave after death, and how autopsy results affect clinical practice in an established information loop. I have projects exploring physician and family attitudes towards autopsy and the utilization of rapid autopsy tissue in characterizing cancer evolution from genetic and immunologic standpoints.
