Jane C. Tan
Associate Professor of Medicine (Nephrology) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy research relates to issues pertaining to clinical kidney transplantation. We have ongoing studies on the following topics.
1. Renal senescence and kidney transplant, and chronic allograft nephropathy.
2. Living donor safety and response to uninephrectomy.
3. Biomarkers for post-transplant monitoring.
Senior Associate Dean, Graduate Education & Postdoctoral Affairs and Professor of Developmental Biology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsWe use genetic and cellular approaches to investigate the molecular basis of glial development and myelination in the zebrafish.
Philip S. Tsao, PhD
Professor (Research) of Medicine (Cardiovascular Medicine)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsOur primary interests are in the molecular underpinnings of vascular disease as well as assessing disease risk. In addition to targeted investigation of specific signaling molecules, we utilize global genomic analysis to identify gene expression networks and regulatory units. We are particularly interested in the role of microRNAs in gene expression pathways associated with disease.

Current Research and Scholarly InterestsPsychopharmacology of dementia and Alzheimer's disease;, biological correlates of Alzheimer's disease; sexual dysfunction in, Alzheimer's disease; memory disorders.
Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology (Oncology)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsGynecologic Malignancies
Biologic Response Modifiers
New Drug Development
Antigenic specificities of human antibodies encoded by the VH4-34 gene
George D. Smith Professor, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsWe study synaptic communication between brain cells with the goal of understanding neuronal computations and memory mechanisms. Main areas of focus include: presynaptic calcium channels, mechanisms of vesicular fusion and recycling. Modulation of synaptic strength through changes in postsynaptic receptors and dendritic morphology. Signaling that links synaptic activity to nuclear transcription and local protein translation. Techniques include imaging, electrophysiology, molecular biology.
George Triadafilopoulos, MD
Clinical Professor, Medicine - Gastroenterology & Hepatology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy primary research interest concerns factors involved in the pathogenesis of gastro-esophageal reflux disease and its complications, such as Barrett's esophagus and the role of diagnostic and therapeutic modalities in their management.
Dolores Gallagher Thompson, PhD, ABPP
Professor (Research) of Psychiatry and Behavioral Science (Public Mental Health and Population Sciences), Emerita
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy current research focuses on uses of technology to improve mental health of older persons and their family members. I have a strong emphasis on how cultural diversity impacts mental health access, services, and outcomes & am working with diverse groups: Latinos, South Asian Indians, and Chinese. I conduct research in collaboration with the World Health Organization, the Alzheimer's Disease Research Center at Stanford, and many community-based organizations. Student input is welcome.
Christopher N. Ta, MD
Professor of Ophthalmology at the Stanford University Medical Center
BioChristopher N. Ta, MD specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of cornea diseases including medical and surgical management. His areas of expertise are in the treatment of ocular infections, inflammation, dry eyes and ocular surface diseases. He has conducted numerous clinical trials toward the prevention and treatment of ocular infections. Ta also has extensive clinical experience in the treatment of ocular graft-versus host disease following hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
