Robert Kazimierz Lesniak
BioRobert K. Leśniak joined the Medicinal Chemistry Knowledge Center at Stanford ChEM-H in 2018 as a postdoctoral fellow. Prior to coming to Stanford, he worked with Professor Chris Schofield at the University of Oxford, as a postdoctoral research associate, designing novel antibiotics for the European gram-negative antibacterial engine (ENABLE) and UK Medical Research Council (MRC). Dr Leśniak also completed his DPhil under the guidance of Professor Schofield as a BHF-CRE studentship recipient, which involved the design and implementation of small molecules targeting Fe(II), 2-oxoglutarate dependent oxygenase enzymes involved in carnitine biosynthesis and hypoxic response as a means to treat cardiovascular disease. In addition, work on small-molecule modulation of bacterial metallo-beta-lactamases to combat antibiotic resistance was also carried out. Dr Leśniak completed his undergraduate at the University of Bristol, and worked at GlaxoSmithKline, North Carolina, developing inhibitors of bromodomains and histone acetyl-transferases. He is currently an instructor and medicinal chemist working with Professor Thomas Montine at the Stanford School of Medicine on the design of neurotransmitter prodrugs.
Joseph (Joe) Lipsick
Professor of Pathology, of Genetics and, by courtesy, of Biology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsFunction and evolution of the Myb oncogene family; function and evolution of E2F transcriptional regulators and RB tumor suppressors; epigenetic regulation of chromatin and chromosomes; cancer genetics.
Adjunct Clinical Assistant Professor, Pathology
BioDr. Amy Lo is a pathologist with board certification in anatomic pathology, clinical pathology and molecular genetic pathology. She completed her MD and MS at the University of Illinois at Chicago and her residency in both anatomic and clinical pathology at Northwestern University. She then joined the faculty at Northwestern University as a Clinical Instructor and Advanced Gastrointestinal/Surgical Pathology Fellow. Amy then completed a molecular genetic pathology fellowship at Stanford University.
In 2016, Amy joined Genentech as research pathology scientist supporting drug research and development with a focus in oncology and individualized drug development.
Additionally, Amy continues clinical work as an Adjunct Clinical Assistant Professor in pathology at Stanford University and Lucille Packard’s Children’s Hospital.
Jonathan Z. Long
Assistant Professor of Pathology
BioDr. Jonathan Long is an Assistant Professor of Pathology and an Institute Scholar of Stanford ChEM-H (Chemistry, Engineering & Medicine for Human Health). Prior to arriving to Stanford in 2018, Dr. Long completed his Ph.D. in Chemistry at Scripps Research with Benjamin F. Cravatt and his postdoctoral work at Harvard Medical School/Dana-Farber Cancer Institute with Bruce M. Spiegelman. His contributions in the areas of lipid biochemistry and energy homeostasis have been recognized by numerous awards from the National Institutes of Health and the American Diabetes Association. At Stanford, the Long laboratory studies signaling pathways in mammalian energy metabolism. The long-term goal of this work is to discover new molecules and pathways that can be translated into therapeutic opportunities for obesity, metabolic disease, and other age-associated chronic diseases.
Teri A Longacre
Richard L. Kempson, MD, Professor in Surgical Pathology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsGynecological, breast and gastrointestinal pathology with major emphasis on ovarian cancer and ovarian tumors of low malignant potential. Pathology of familial and hereditary breast-ovarian-GI cancer.
Alarice Cheng-Yi Lowe
Associate Professor of Pathology
BioDr. Lowe joined the School of Medicine faculty in 2019. She received her undergraduate degree in Biology from MIT and her medical degree at UCSD, prior to residency and cytology fellowship at UCLA. In 2011, she joined the faculty at Brigham and Women's Hospital where she developed a research focus on Circulating Tumor Cells (CTCs) and the application of CTC technology to improve clinical diagnostics. Clinically, her interests focus on Cytopathology and Genitourinary Pathology.
Professor of Pathology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsWe are interested in understanding how neural stem cells balance their self-renewal and differentiation and how deregulation of this process can result in brain tumor. We are also interested in mechanisms of neurodegeneration in Alzheimers and Parkinsons diseases. We are using both Drosophila and mammalian models to address these fundamental questions.
