Clinical Associate Professor, Pediatrics - Hematology & Oncology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI conduct clinical research on the prevention, early diagnosis, and treatment of infectious complications in pediatric patients with leukemia.
Glaivy Batsuli, MD
Assistant Professor of Pediatrics (Hematology/Oncology)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsHemophilia is a rare inherited X-linked bleeding disorder characterized by the deficiency of blood clotting proteins factor VIII or factor IX. These individuals are at risk for spontaneous bleeds and trauma or surgery-induced bleeding. There have been remarkable advancements in the management of hemophilia to prevent these bleeding episodes and improve quality of life. However, the presence of neutralizing antibodies, called inhibitors, still dictates access to novel therapies such as factor replacement for bleed management and now FDA-approved gene therapies. The Batsuli Lab is focused on elucidating mechanisms of the immune response to blood coagulation proteins in bleeding disorders in order to develop strategies and therapeutics for inhibitor prevention and tolerance induction.
Dr. Batsuli's clinical research interests also include clinical trial participation for novel therapeutics & interventions in bleeding disorders such as hemophilia and von Willebrand disease in addition to coagulation issues & outcomes in ultra-rare bleeding disorders and sickle cell disease.
Deborah E. Addicott - John A. Kriewall and Elizabeth A. Haehl Family Professor of Pediatrics, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy research interests extend from hypothesis-driven studies in biochemistry and cell biology to discovery-driven interests in proteomics and systems biology to clinical treatment of acute lymphoblastic leukemia of children, and pediatric palliative care.
Jacquelyn Nicole Crane
Clinical Assistant Professor, Pediatrics - Hematology & Oncology
BioDr. Jacquelyn Crane is a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Pediatric Hematology Oncology division at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, Stanford University School of Medicine. She received her undergraduate degree from Dartmouth College. She then conducted laboratory-based genetics research for two years in the Pauls lab at Massachusetts General Hospital. She received her medical degree from Tufts University School of Medicine and completed her pediatrics residency and pediatric hematology/oncology fellowship training at University of California Los Angeles. As a pediatric hematology & oncology fellow, she engaged in computational analysis of osteosarcoma transcriptomic data in the Graeber Lab and completed a medical education fellowship certificate program. Her primary clinical and research interests include sarcomas, Wilms tumor, and other solid tumors, cancer genomics, clinical trials and medical education. She is the associate program director of the pediatric hematology-oncology fellowship.
Professor of Pediatrics (Hematology/Oncology), Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsHematology/Oncology, Phase I drug studies for childhood cancer, overcoming multidrug resistance in leukemia and solid tumors, biology and treatment of acute nonlymphocytic leukemia, early detection of central nervous system leukemia by measuring growth, factor binding proteins.
Professor of Radiology (General Radiology) and, by courtesy, of Pediatrics (Hematology/Oncology)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsAs a physician-scientist involved in the care of pediatric patients and developing novel pediatric molecular imaging technologies, my goal is to link the fields of nanotechnology and medical imaging towards more efficient diagnoses and image-guided therapies. Our research team develops novel imaging techniques for improved cancer diagnosis, for image-guided-drug delivery and for in vivo monitoring of cell therapies in children and young adults.
