Current Research and Scholarly InterestsTelomeres are nucleoprotein complexes that protect chromosome ends and shorten with cell division and aging. We are interested in how telomere shortening influences cancer, stem cell function, aging and human disease. Telomerase is a reverse transcriptase that synthesizes telomere repeats and is expressed in stem cells and in cancer. We have found that telomerase also regulates stem cells and we are pursuing the function of telomerase through diverse genetic and biochemical approaches.

Clinical Associate Professor, Medicine - Hematology
BioI aim to provide high quality care in a diverse patient practice. My clinic includes all types of hematologic disorders, ranging from anemia, clotting/bleeding disorders, and low blood counts to complex malignancies such as leukemia, myelodysplastic syndrome, myeloma, and lymphoma. I aim to combine the efficiency of a private office with the complex care expected of a tertiary institution like Stanford. I value your time and strive to maintain an on-schedule clinic.
As the interim medical co-director of the Stanford Cancer Center, it is my privilege to partner with my colleagues in advancing innovative research and high quality, coordinated, and compassionate care for our patients.
Professor of Medicine (Hematology)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy research integrates clinical care of patients with novel treatments for a variety of hematologic disorders. I see patients with a wide range of problems with a particular focus on chronic lymphocytic leukemia and multiple myeloma. I provide comprehensive consultative services as well as treatment for both the acute and chronic leukemias as well as non-malignant conditions such as clotting disorders and thrombocytopenia.
Clinical Assistant Professor, Medicine - Hematology
BioDr. Diep specializes in the treatment of patients with conditions considered as nonmalignant hematology, which includes hemoglobinopathies, bleeding/clotting disorders, and disorders affecting blood counts.
His practice style emphasizes the patient-physician relationship, the best available evidence, and the patients' values as anchors for a shared decision-making process. He is passionate about medical education and is dedicated to improving the care delivery for patients with blood disorders.
