Kari Nadeau, MD, PhD
Naddisy Foundation Professor of Pediatric Food Allergy, Immunology and Asthma, Professor of Medicine, of Pediatrics, Senior Fellow at the Woods Institute and Professor, by courtesy, of Otolaryngology and of Epidemiology & Population Health
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsDr. Kari Nadeau’s laboratory and clinical research is focused on understanding the role of genes and the environment, including climate change, on the rising incidence of allergies and asthma. By understanding the genetic, epigenetic, cellular, and humoral factors that mediate immune tolerance or allergy to foods, aeroallegens, and air pollutants (e.g., diesel emissions and wildfires), her research is laying the groundwork for potential future therapies to prevent and cure allergies and asthma.

BioRonjon Nag first became a Stanford Distinguished Careers Institute Fellow in 2016, is currently a Visiting Fellow at the Stanford Center for the Study of Language and Information (CSLI) and teaches popular classes at the intersection of AI healthcare through Stanford Continuing Studies. He is a researcher on the future of intelligence and its impact on society as part of the Stanford Boundaries of Humanity Project (boundariesofhumanity.stanford.edu). He has deployed artificial intelligence systems for mobile devices over three decades, working on neural networks at Cambridge, where he received a PhD in engineering; at Stanford, where he was a Harkness Fellow in the Psychology Department; at MIT, where he received an MS, and at the University of Birmingham, UK where he received a BSc. He received the IET Mountbatten Medal at the Royal Institution for his contributions to the modern mobile phone industry. Companies he has co-founded or advised have been sold to Motorola, BlackBerry, where he held Vice-President positions, and Apple. He is currently an advisor, founder and on the boards of numerous high tech companies including Ecrio, Embee Mobile and GTCardio and he is President of the R42 Institute. Via his company Bounce Imaging where he is chairman, he was winner of the $1m Verizon Powerful Answers Award. He has numerous interests in the intersection of AI and Healthcare including advising companies such as HealX, and Oxford Drug Design on computational drug discovery.
He has many firsts including:
• First laptop with speech recognition built-in (with Apricot, 1984)
• First selling cursive handwriting recognition (with Lexicus, 1991)

Professor of Radiology (Integrative Biomedical Imaging Informatics) and, by courtesy, of Medicine (Medical Informatics) and of Electrical Engineering
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy research seeks to advance the clinical and basic sciences in radiology, while improving our understanding of biology and the manifestations of disease, by pioneering methods in the information sciences that integrate imaging, clinical and molecular data. A current focus is on content-based radiological image retrieval and integration of imaging features with clinical and molecular data for diagnostic, prognostic, and therapy planning decision support.
Professor of Medicine (Cardiovascular Medicine)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsDr. Narayan directs the Computational Arrhythmia Research Laboratory, whose goal is to define the mechanisms underlying complex human heart rhythm disorders, to develop bioengineering-focused solutions to improve therapy that will be tested in clinical trials. The laboratory has been funded continuously since 2001 by the National Institutes of Health, AHA and ACC, and interlinks a disease-focused group of clinicians, computational physicists, bioengineers and trialists.
Professor of Mechanical Engineering
BioResearch involves development of improved methods for predicting the fatigue life of engineering materials, incuding the effects of manufacturing processes, and investigation of new approaches in the field of experimental mechanics, such as determination of residual stresses using optical methods.
