Instructor, Pediatrics - Stem Cell Transplantation
BioI am a physician scientist at Stanford University/Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, with a clinical and research focus in stem cell transplantation. Prior training includes earning MD and PhD degrees through the combined program at Saint Louis University School of Medicine, where I investigated the role of the cyclin dependent kinase inhibitor p21 in suppression of inflammatory cytokine production and treating inflammatory diseases. This project led to the publication of two first-author peer-reviewed articles, several middle-author publications, and a significant review article. I subsequently completed Pediatrics residency at the University of California Los Angeles/Mattel Children's Hospital and Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Fellowship at Stanford. Currently I'm an Instructor of Pediatrics in the division of Stem Cell Transplantation and Regenerative Medicine.
My long-term career goal is to develop a research program focusing on immune tolerance in stem cell transplantation and become a leader in the development of improved therapies for preventing or treating graft-versus-host disease. As such, I am excited about my ongoing work in the laboratory of Dr. Robert Negrin, focusing on the expansion and functional enhancement of regulatory T cells and invariant natural killer T cells. This work is currently supported by a St. Baldrick’s Foundation Fellowship, and has previously received funding from the Stanford Child Health Research Institute.

Clinical Professor, Pediatrics - Critical Care
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsDr. Meaney is a nationally and internationally recognized pediatric resuscitation scientist, and his current focus is on improving care for seriously ill children at the community clinic and district hospital level in low and middle income countries. Dr Meaney seeks to conduct the necessary research to pioneer, implement and evaluate innovative yet relevant and practical solutions to improve the quality of care for seriously ill or injured children worldwide.
Clinical Assistant Professor, Pediatrics
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI have developed a new promising neonatal mortality prediction score at the University of Gondar Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) in Gondar, Ethiopia. The score predicts approximately 84% of neonatal deaths in the NICU using clinical variables. I have a dataset over 800 NICU admissions in Gondar. I am recruiting scholars who are interested in conducting clinical and epidemiological research to validate, refine, and implement the mortality score to reduce neonatal mortality in Ethiopia.
Kara Davis Meister
Clinical Assistant Professor, Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery Divisions
Clinical Assistant Professor (By courtesy), Pediatrics - Operations
BioKara D. Meister, MD, is a pediatric otolaryngologist and head & neck surgeon. She received her medical degree from Medical University of South Carolina and completed her otolaryngology residency at University of Pittsburgh. She completed a NIH funded fellowship in head and neck research at the University of Pittsburgh. Dr. Meister then went on to complete a pediatric otolaryngology fellowship at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford.
She is currently a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department Otolaryngology, Division of Pediatric Otolaryngology, at Stanford University. Dr. Meister’s research interest involves understanding the use of technology to diagnose and treat pediatric patients, specifically the use of point-of-care ultrasonography. Her clinical interests include airway evaluation and reconstruction, voice and swallowing problems, and treatment of patients with head and neck masses including thyroid nodules and cancer. She is Co-Director, Surgical, of the Children's Thyroid Center at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford and is a participating surgeon in the Aerodigestive and Airway Reconstruction Center at Stanford Children’s Health.

Fernando S. Mendoza
Associate Dean of Minority Advising and Programs and Professor of Pediatrics (General Pediatrics) at the Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI have two research interests: childhood health disparities and workforce diversity. My research on childhood health disparities centers on Latino and immigrant children with a focus on early childhood health and development. My work in workforce diversity examines the pipeline for diversity in academic pediatrics, with special attention on the pipeline for underrepresent minorities.
