    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.

  • Rondeep Brar

    Rondeep Brar

    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.

  • Steven Coutre

    Steven Coutre

    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.

  • Robert Diep

    Robert Diep

    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.

    Jason Gotlib

    Professor of Medicine (Hematology)

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy research interests include phase I/II clinical trial evaluation of novel therapies for the following diseases:
    --Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS)
    --Chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML)
    --Acute myelogenous leukemia (AML)
    --Myeloproliferative disorders (MPDs) including:
    Hypereosinophilic syndrome
    Systemic mastocytosis
    BCR-ABL-negative MPDs

  • Peter Greenberg

    Peter Greenberg

    Professor of Medicine (Hematology), Emeritus

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsDr Greenberg's clinical research involves design and coordination of clinical trials using experimental drugs with biologic focus for both lower and higher risk MDS patients not responding to standard therapies. These studies are particularly based on his prior laboratory investigations of gene expression and hematopoietic regulation in MDS patients. He is Coordinator of the International Working Group for Prognosis in MDS (IWG-PM) which generated the revised MDS classification system (the IPSS-R) and is now evaluating the impact of molecular mutations on this risk-based prognostic system. This project aims to use such findings to more specifically characterize and treat MDS patients. He is Chair of the NCCN Practice Guidelines Panel for MDS.

  • Neel K. Gupta

    Neel K. Gupta

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI have specific interest in the pathobiology and management of individuals with AIDS-related and primary central nervous system lymphomas.

  • Marie Hollenhorst, MD, PhD

    Marie Hollenhorst, MD, PhD

    Clinical Instructor, Pathology
    Clinical Instructor, Medicine - Hematology

    BioDr. Hollenhorst is a physician and scientist with expertise in non-malignant hematology, transfusion medicine, and chemical biology. Dr. Hollenhorst values the one-on-one relationships that she forms with her patients, and strives to deliver the highest quality of care for individuals with blood diseases. Her experience caring for patients drives her to ask scientific questions in the laboratory, where she aims to bring a chemical approach to the study of non-malignant blood disease.

    Dr. Hollenhorst pursued combined MD and PhD training at Harvard University, where she received a PhD in Chemical Biology under the mentorship of Professor Christopher T Walsh. She subsequently completed a residency in Internal Medicine at Brigham and Women's Hospital, a fellowship in Transfusion Medicine at Harvard Medical School, and a fellowship in Hematology at Stanford.

    Dr. Hollenhorst has an interest in the biology of platelets, which are cellular fragments that help the blood to maintain a healthy balance between bleeding and clotting. Working in the laboratory of Professor Carolyn Bertozzi of Stanford Chemistry, Dr. Hollenhorst is studying sugar molecules found on the surface of platelets that are important in controlling their function and lifespan.

    Dr. Hollenhorst's research is supported by an NIH K99 Career Pathway to Independence in Blood Science Award for Physician-Scientists, a Stanford Chemistry, Engineering & Medicine for Human Health Physician-Scientist Fellowship, and a National Blood Foundation Early-Career Scientific Research Grant.

  • David Iberri

    David Iberri

    Clinical Assistant Professor, Medicine - Hematology

    BioDr. Iberri is a medical oncologist and hematologist who specializes in the treatment of hematologic malignancies. His clinical practices runs the gamut of malignant and non-malignant hematologic disorders including acute and chronic leukemias, multiple myeloma and lymphomas, and bleeding and thrombotic disorders. He is actively involved in clinical trials evaluating novel agents in hematologic malignancies. His research interests are in the development and application of biomarkers to select patients most likely to benefit from therapy.

  • Calvin Kuo

    Maureen Lyles D'Ambrogio Professor

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsWe study cancer biology, intestinal stem cells (ISC), and angiogenesis. We use primary organoid cultures of diverse tissues and tumor biopsies for immunotherapy modeling, oncogene functional screening and stem cell biology. Angiogenesis projects include blood-brain barrier regulation, stroke therapeutics and anti-angiogenic cancer therapy. ISC projects apply organoid culture and ko mice to injury-inducible vs homeostatic stem cells and symmetric division mechanisms.

    Maureen Lyles D'Ambrogio Professor in the School of Medicine

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsOur long term interest is to have a better understanding of the natural antithrombotic pathways and the pathophysiology of vascular thrombosis. We have focused on thrombin, the key enzyme in the blood clotting cascade.Our goal is to develop new antithrombotic agents and devise new diagnostic tests for vascular thrombotic disorders.
