Clinical Professor, Medicine - Pulmonary, Allergy & Critical Care Medicine
BioDr. Rishi Raj is a Clinical Professor of Medicine at Stanford University, where he directs the Interstitial Lung Disease program. He has practiced pulmonary and critical care medicine for over two decades and specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of interstitial lung diseases.
His primary clinical interest encompasses a range of interstitial lung diseases, including idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, other idiopathic interstitial lung diseases, drug-induced interstitial lung diseases, interstitial lung disease associated with connective tissue diseases such as scleroderma, rheumatoid arthritis, dermatomyositis, sarcoidosis, hypersensitivity pneumonitis, and other various interstitial lung diseases.
Dr. Raj's clinical research explores the use of radiologic biomarkers to predict outcomes in various interstitial lung diseases. He is a principal investigator and co-investigator in numerous clinical trials, examining new therapies for treating idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and other interstitial lung diseases.
Clinical Associate Professor, Medicine - Pulmonary, Allergy & Critical Care Medicine
BioDr. Meghan Ramsey is a Clinical Associate Professor in the Division of Pulmonary, Allergy, and Critical Care Medicine. She received her undergraduate degree from Lafayette College in Pennsylvania with a major in Neuroscience. She then attended Stanford University for medical school where she stayed to complete her internal medicine residency, and pulmonary/critical care fellowship. Her clinical time is split between the inpatient setting in the medical ICU and the ambulatory setting in Interventional Pulmonology with a focus on thoracic malignancies. Outside of her clinical time she has a dedicated commitment to teaching, serving as a mentor for residents and fellows, as well as leading as a co-director the pulmonary physiology course for medical students.
Berthold and Belle N. Guggenhime Professor, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI am interested in the prevention and control of critical care-related illnesses and complications, including ventilator-associated pneumonia, spread of nosocomial infections, and prognosis of multiple organ system failure in intensive care units. Infections and complications of therapy in immunocompromised hosts, including effects of chemotherapy and hematopoetic stem cell transplants is another interest.
Associate Professor of Medicine (Pulmonary and Critical Care)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsWe use genetics and genomics methodologies to identify novel ARDS pathobiology; we hope that this will enable identification of novel biomarkers, phenotypes, and treatments for the disease. We are building a plasma biobank of critically ill patients at Stanford, with a particular focus on metabolic changes in critical illness.
Associate Professor of Medicine (Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine), Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsOur laboratory examines apoptotic and cell signaling pathways in cancer and lung disease. We are studying signaling pathways that regulate oxidative stress responses and cancer cell growth. Part of these studies focus on analysis of non-canonical transcription regulatory functions of the TERC and Tert components of telomerase in lung disease and cancer.
Professor of Medicine (Pulmonary and Critical Care)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsWe have an active collaborative project examining basic and clinical aspects of non-tuberculous mycobacterial lung infection in non-immune compromised adults. Studies have examined possible cellular immune mechanisms for increased susceptibility to these infections, and are also investigating aspects of optimal diagnosis and treatment. In addition, a clinical and translational research program is investigating the causes and genetic factors underlying the evolution of bronchiectasis.
