John R. Pringle
Professor of Genetics
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMuch of our research exploits the power of yeast as an experimentally tractable model eukaryote to investigate fundamental problems in cell and developmental biology such as the mechanisms of cell polarization and cytokinesis. In another project, we are developing the small sea anemone Aiptasia as a model system for study of the molecular and cellular biology of dinoflagellate-cnidarian symbiosis, which is critical for the survival of most corals but still very poorly understood.
Bing Professor of Population Studies, Professor of Genetics and Biology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsWe are interested in a broad range of problems at the interface of genomics and evolutionary biology. One current focus of the lab is in understanding how genetic variation impacts gene regulation and complex traits. We also have long-term interests in using genetic data to learn about population structure, history and adaptation, especially in humans.

Postdoctoral Scholar, Genetics
BioI obtained my PhD from the Biological and Environmental Science Division at King Abdullah University for Science and Technology (KAUST, Saudi Arabia) in 2021. I had the opportunity to work with Christian Frøkjær-Jensen on a fascinating research project focusing on the epigenetic regulation of germline genes and the transgenerational inheritance of silencing in C. elegans.
My passion lies in the field of epigenetics, synthetic and molecular biology, and protein biochemistry. I am deeply intrigued by the intricacies of genome organization and am dedicated to unraveling the "rules" that govern it. Additionally, I'm committed to dissecting the molecular and structural changes that take place within chromatin.
Charles G. Prober, MD
Professor of Pediatrics (Infectious Diseases) and, by courtesy, of Microbiology and Immunology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy research interest is in the epidemiology, pathophysiology, prevention, and treatment of infections in children. Much of this research has focused on viral infections, especially those caused by herpes simplex virus (HSV). I have conducted a number of studies concerned with the epidemiology of HSV-2 infections in pregnant women, their partners, and neonates.
Senior Associate Vice Provost, Clinical Research Governance and Professor of Medicine (Stanford Prevention Research Center)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsDr. Prochaska's research expertise centers on technology-mediated health behavior change interventions including targets of tobacco, physical activity, and dietary change. Working with Alaska Native and Latino communities, people with serious mental illness, alcohol and drug problems, or heart disease, and jobseekers and the unhoused, Dr. Prochaska’s research combines stage-tailored interventions with pharmacotherapy and utilizes interactive expert system interventions and social media.
Robert N. Proctor
Professor of History and, by courtesy, of Medicine (Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsTobacco and cigarette design; human origins and evolution; changing concepts of health and disease; medical history and medical politics
