BioMy research is focused on computational and systems biology. My primary research interest lies in developing new computational algorithms and statistical methods for the analysis of complex data in biological systems, especially related to the large-scale single-cell RNA sequencing data. The specific topics I have examined include:
1. Integration of single-cell multi-omics datasets for tumor
2. Statistical test of cell developmental trajectories
3. Visualization and reconstruction of single-cell RNA sequencing data
4. Computational analysis of the bifurcating event revealed by dynamical network biomarker methods
Allison Betof Warner, MD, PhD
Clinical Instructor, Medicine - Oncology
BioDr. Betof Warner is a board-certified, fellowship-trained medical oncologist with the Cutaneous Oncology Program and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Medicine, Division of Medical Oncology. She also serves as Director of Melanoma Medical Oncology, Director of Solid Tumor Cellular Therapy, and co-Director of the Pigmented Lesion and Melanoma Program.
Clinical interests of Dr. Betof Warner include treatment of advanced melanoma, immunotherapy, and cellular therapies for solid tumors. She has been a pioneer in the use of commercial tumor infiltrating lymphocyte (TIL) therapy, which is expected to become standard of care for immunotherapy-refractory melanoma.
Dr. Betof Warner serves as the leader of the Melanoma & Cutaneous Oncology Clinical Research Group, with research interests focused on tumor response to immunotherapy. She has been the principal investigator of multiple clinical trials focusing on immunotherapy-refractory melanoma and is internationally recognized for her expertise in central nervous system metastases and the use of novel cellular therapies. Dr. Betof Warner collaborates with investigators around the world in surgery, neuro-oncology, neurosurgery, radiation oncology, and pathology. She has received funding and awards for her clinical and translational investigative work from multiple high-profile organizations, including the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), National Institutes of Health (NIH), and Melanoma Research Foundation.
In addition to publishing her research in peer-reviewed journals, Dr. Betof Warner has served as an editorial and grant reviewer for multiple organizations, including the Melanoma Research Foundation. She has authored book chapters and case reports, contributed to national guidelines, and presented her findings at regional, national, and international meetings.
Dr. Betof Warner is a member of multiple professional organizations and societies, including the American Association for Cancer Research, the American Society of Clinical Oncology, and the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer, where she serves on the Early Career Scientist Committee. She is also a member of the American College of Sports Medicine and the European Society for Medical Oncology.

Jan Lukas Boegeholz
Postdoctoral Scholar, Oncology
BioI am currently working as a postdoctoral fellow in translational cancer research, linking new insights and techniques in molecular biology to clinical problems in cancer patients. Prior to joining Ash Alizadeh's lab, I completed a four-year fellowship in hematology in Zurich, Switzerland, treating patients with various cancer types and stages.
Nam Quoc Bui
Clinical Assistant Professor, Medicine - Oncology
BioDr. Bui is a Clinical Assistant Professor of Medicine at the Stanford Cancer Institute and a specialist in Sarcoma. Dr. Bui earned an undergraduate degree in Computer Science at Stanford University and went on to earn his medical degree from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. He completed Internal Medicine residency at Stanford Hospital and Hematology/Oncology fellowship at the University of California San Diego, where he performed extensive research in bioinformatics to analyze tumor sequencing data.
His research background and interests are in the field of bioinformatics as applied to large data sets and the study of novel compounds in rare malignancies. He is involved in numerous sarcoma clinical trials, leading efforts to take new therapeutics from the lab to clinical practice. He also is involved in education at the Stanford University School of Medicine, serving as a lecturer and mentor to students and trainees. Dr. Bui is the founding Editor-in-Chief of the journal “Current Problems in Cancer: Case Reports”, an international, peer-reviewed journal that publishes groundbreaking cases that give insight into redefining concepts in cancer.
