Professor of Pediatrics (Infectious Diseases), Senior Fellow at the Woods Institute for the Environment and Professor, by courtesy, of Epidemiology and Population Health and at the Stanford Doerr School of Sustainability
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsArthropod-borne viruses are emerging and re-emerging infections that are spreading throughout the world. Our laboratory investigates the epidemiology of arboviral infections, focusing on the burden of disease and the long-term complications on human health. In particular, Dr. LaBeaud investigates dengue, chikungunya, and Rift Valley fever viruses in Kenya, where outbreaks cause fever, arthritis, retinitis, encephalitis, and hemorrhagic fever. Our main research questions focus on the risk factors for arboviral infections, the development of diagnostic tests that can be administered in the field to quickly determine what kind of arboviral infection a person has, and the genetic and immunologic investigation of why different people respond differently to the same infection. Our long-term goals are to contribute to a deeper understanding of arboviral infections and their long-term health consequences and to optimize control strategies to prevent these emerging infections. Our laboratory also investigates the effects of antenatal and postnatal parasitic infections on vaccine responses, growth, and development of Kenyan children.
My lab at Stanford supports the field work that is ongoing in Kenya, but we also have several projects that are based locally. We strive to improve diagnostics of arboviral infections and are using Luminex technology to build a new screening assay. We also have created a Luminex based platform to assess vaccine responses against multiple pathogens.
Norman J. Lacayo, MD
Associate Professor of Pediatrics (Hematology and Oncology)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsPediatric Hematology/Oncology, Phase I drug studies for refractory and relapsed leukemia; genomic studies, biologic risk-stratification and treatment of acute myeloid leukemia; prediction or induction response and risk of relapse using phosphoproteomics in childhood AML; novel MRD techniques in childhood ALL.

Postdoctoral Scholar, Cardiology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI have always been fascinated by the process of genetic penetrance, how two people can carry the same mutation but only one of them may be affected.
My main project focuses on understanding the role of TBX4 in the development of Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH). Mutations in this gene are related to very different diseases. In my research, I mix cellular models, gene editing, and high throughput assays to find the determinants of penetrance in the development of PAH under these conditions.
Christine Shyrue Lai
Affiliate, Dean's Office Operations - Dean Other
Fellow in Pediatrics - Hematology & Oncology
BioDr. Christine Lai is a Pediatric Hematology Oncology Fellow in the Bass Center at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital. Prior to coming to Stanford, she trained in pediatric residency at Northwell Alexandra Cohen Children's Hospital in New Hyde Park, NY and attended medical school at New York University. Her current research interests are cancer immunotherapy and cancer glycobiology. She currently works in Professor Carolyn Bertozzi's lab and sees patients in the Bass Center Clinic.
Rayhan A. Lal, MD
Assistant Professor of Medicine (Endocrinology) and of Pediatrics (Endocrinology)
BioI grew up in the east bay area and have had type 1 diabetes for 30+ years. I studied electrical engineering and computer science at U.C. Berkeley (Go Bears!) with the hope of applying my knowledge to diabetes technology. The significance of clinical practice became clear to me after my siblings also developed diabetes. I am devoting my life to advancing the care of diabetes in people of all ages.
Scott R. Lambert, MD
Professor of Ophthalmology and, by courtesy, of Pediatrics
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy research has focused on improving the visual outcomes of children with congenital cataracts. I organized a randomized clinical trial, the Infant Aphakia Treatment Study to compare the visual outcomes of infants optically corrected with a contact lens vs. an intraocular lens after unilateral cataract surgery. A second area of research has been ocular growth after cataract surgery.
