Ronald Levy, MD
Robert K. and Helen K. Summy Professor in the School of Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsClinical Interests: lymphoma. Research Interests: Immunology and molecular biology of lymphoid malignancy; molecular vaccines for cancer.
Professor (Research) of Medicine (Oncology)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsOur research focuses on the mechanism of action of tetraspanins, an evolutionary conserved, widely expressed multi-gene family. We study a prototype, CD81, a molecule implicated in the pathogenesis of two major human diseases: hepatitis C virus (HCV) and malaria.
David B. Lewis
Professor of Pediatrics (Immunology)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy laboratory is focused on defining cellular and molecular mechanisms that limit T cell responses to vaccines and pathogens during normal early postnatal development and in cases of inherited genetic immunodeficiencies. We are also determinomg how these limitations in immunity can be overcome by using novel approaches for vaccine adjuvants for influenza vaccine and by using catalytically inactive Cas proteins for inducing endogenous gene expression.
Gordon Li, MD
Professor of Neurosurgery and, by courtesy, of Neurology and of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery (OHNS)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests1.) My laboratory studies the biology of brain tumors with the goal of developing novel therapeutics for the treatment of malignant brain tumors and translating that research into clinical trials.
2.) My clinical interests include improving surgical techniques for brain tumor surgery, immunotherapy for the treatment of glioblastoma, and novel uses for stereotactic radiosurgery.
Jin Billy Li
Associate Professor of Genetics
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsThe Li Lab is primarily interested in RNA editing mediated by ADAR enzymes. We co-discovered that the major function of RNA editing is to label endogenous dsRNAs as "self" to avoid being recognized as "non-self" by MDA5, a host innate immune dsRNA sensor, leading us to pursue therapeutic applications in cancer, autoimmune diseases, and viral infection. The other major direction of the lab is to develop technologies to harness endogenous ADAR enzymes for site-specific transcriptome engineering.
Associate Professor (Research) of Radiation Oncology (Radiation Physics)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy lab's research is focused on the development of imaging and molecular biomarkers to improve early detection, diagnosis, prognostication, and prediction of therapy response in cancer. Our ultimate goal is to translate these biomarkers into clinical practice to guide optimal management and therapeutic decisions for precision cancer medicine.
Joseph C. Liao
Professor of Urology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsThe overarching theme of my scholarship is to develop precision diagnostics in imaging and biomarkers to guide the delivery of precision therapy for urological diseases including bladder cancer, urinary tract infections, and kidney stone disease.
Lydia J. Lee Professor of Pediatric Cancer
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsHematology/Oncology, treatment of sarcomas of bone and soft tissue, biology of acute lymphoblastic leukemias, treatment of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and Hodgkin's disease.
Eleni Linos, MD, MPH, DrPH
Professor of Dermatology and, by courtesy, of Epidemiology and Population Health at the Stanford University Medical Center
BioEleni Linos MD, MPH, DrPH, is Professor of Dermatology and Epidemiology at Stanford University.
Her current work is focused on understanding the impact of novel coronavirus COVID-19 on the health and wellbeing of communities.
Dr. Linos' work also focuses on public health, cancer prevention and the care of older adults. Dr. Linos is dually trained in epidemiology and dermatology and is the principal investigator of several NIH funded studies aimed at improving the lives of patients. She received her medical degree from Cambridge and Oxford universities in the UK, then trained in epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health and completed her residency at Stanford.
