Michael J. Kaplan
Professor of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery and, by courtesy, of Neurosurgery at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests1) New therapeutic approaches for head and neck cancer, including immune stimulation possibilities (IRX-2 protocol), integration of biological modifiers, and, eventually, genetic approaches.
2) Head and neck cancer stem cells: identification, characterization, control--in conjunction with the Irv Weissman and Michael Clarke labs in the Stem Cell Institute
3) Development of innovative surgical methods at the anterior cranial base
Professor of Biochemistry
Current Research and Scholarly Interests- Lung development and stem cells
- Neural circuit of breathing
- Lung diseases including lung cancer
- New genetic model organisms for medicine
Stanford University Professor in Endocrinology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsOur research interests are in the general area of cellular lipid and lipoprotein metabolism. The work is aimed primarily at understanding the mechanisms regulating cholesterol and triglyceride accumulation in cells. We utilize a variety of techniques from cell biology, biochemistry, and molecular biology.
Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsCurrent research centers on the use of human genetic haploid systems, e.g. the Y chromosome, to understand the prehistory of human migrations particularly since the Holocene. This work includes investigating correlations with human symbolic material culture, focusing on the visual artistic realm. Also being explored are the issues and ethical implications of the social construction of race and ethnicity vis a vis the enhanced capacity to differentiate populations using genotypes.
Professor of Biology in the Department of Anesthesia, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy laboratory tries to find out how pharmacologic agents used in the practice of anesthesia (general anesthetic and analgesic agents) lead to therapeutically desireable endpoints including unconsciousness, immobility and absence of pain. The old idea that general anesthetics are uniformly non-specific "membrane stabilizers" is giving way to a new realization that these agents exert specific actions on particular ion channels and intracellular signalling systems.
