    Clinical Associate Professor, Medicine

    BioDr. Andre Kumar is a Clinical Associate Professor in the Stanford Division of Hospital Medicine with a passion for improving patient care through Point-of-Care Ultrasound (POCUS), clinical research, and education. He earned his MD degree from Tulane University and completed his residency and chief residency in internal medicine at Stanford University, where he also earned a Master's in Education.

    As a passionate educator and researcher, Dr. Kumar has completed three randomized trials on POCUS and its impact on patient care. He continues to conduct research and teach POCUS on a local and national level, and is committed to improving the science and education that underlie the next generation of diagnostic tools. He is the lead investigator for a multicenter trial related to ultrasound and COVID-19. He was also an investigator for the ACTT and ACTIV trials for COVID-19, which brought the first COVID-19 therapeutics to patients nationwide. Currently, he is the Stanford Hospital lead for the National Institutes of Health RECOVER trial, a 1 billion dollar effort to understand the long-term effects of COVID-19 on patients.

  • Calvin Kuo

    Calvin Kuo

    Maureen Lyles D'Ambrogio Professor

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsWe study cancer biology, intestinal stem cells (ISC), and angiogenesis. We use primary organoid cultures of diverse tissues and tumor biopsies for immunotherapy modeling, oncogene functional screening and stem cell biology. Angiogenesis projects include blood-brain barrier regulation, stroke therapeutics and anti-angiogenic cancer therapy. ISC projects apply organoid culture and ko mice to injury-inducible vs homeostatic stem cells and symmetric division mechanisms.

  • David Kurtz

    David Kurtz

    Assistant Professor of Medicine (Oncology)
    On Partial Leave from 05/01/2024 To 04/30/2025

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsImplementation of noninvasive detection of malignancies in the clinic remains difficult due to both technical and clinical challenges. These include necessary improvements in sensitivity and specificity of biomarkers, as well as demonstration of clinical utility of these assays. My research focuses on technical development and implementation of assays to detect and track cancers in order to facilitate personalized disease management.
