Jerome and Daisy Low Gilbert Professor and Professor of Biochemistry
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
BioAs the Medical Director of the Stanford Cancer Center and Associate Director for Clinical Care at the Stanford Cancer Institute, it is my privilege to partner with my colleagues in advancing innovative research alongside high quality, coordinated, and compassionate care.
I 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.
Cailin Collins, MD PhD
Postdoctoral Medical Fellow, Hematology
Fellow in Medicine
BioReceived her undergraduate degree from Williams College, after which she spent one year conducting research at the NIH National Cancer Institute. She then attended medical school at the University of Michigan, where she also completed a PhD in Molecular and Cellular Pathology as part of the Medical Scientist Training Program. She completed residency at UCSF prior to starting Hematology and Oncology fellowship training at Stanford. Her prior research has focused on the transcription factor biology and deregulated signaling pathways in hematologic malignancies. She is currently a postdoctoral fellow in Dr. Ravi Majeti's lab studying clonal hematopoiesis and preleukemic stem cells.
