    Assistant Professor of Medicine (Infectious Diseases)

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our laboratory aims to develop innovative approaches to the control of infectious diseases in resource-limited settings. Drawing upon the fields of epidemiology, microbiology and engineering, we strive to find solutions to extend the technologies that underlie diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases to "last-mile" communities.

  • Niaz Banaei

    Niaz Banaei

    Associate Professor of Pathology and of Medicine (Infectious Diseases) at the Stanford University Medical Center

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests His research interests include (1) development, assessment, and improvement of novel infectious diseases diagnostics, (2) enhancing the quality of C. difficile diagnostic results, and (3) characterization of M. tuberculosis virulence determinants.

  • Brian Blackburn, MD

    Brian Blackburn, MD

    Clinical Associate Professor, Medicine - Infectious Diseases

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests My interests include parasitology and global health; I've investigated cryptosporidium and angiostrongylus outbreaks; schistosoma/strongyloides seroprevalence in refugees, and the distribution and impact of ITNs for malaria and filariasis prevention in Nigeria and India. I have done clinical and programmatic work at teaching hospitals in Liberia and Bangladesh and have opportunities for research in Bangladesh and Kenya, in collaboration with ICDDR,B and CDC, Kenya

    Assistant Professor of Medicine (Infectious Diseases)

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests The major goal of our research is to gain insight into the prevention and control of HIV and other viral pathogens by studying the interplay between the virus and the host immune response. We investigate the role of various arms of the immune response, but with a particular focus on NK cells. We hope to gain additional insights into control of infectious diseases by studying how pregnancy modulates immune responses.

    Assistant Professor of Medicine (Infectious Diseases)

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our lab studies how injured and infected tissues communicate with the immune system. Our goals are to understand the immunology of normal wound healing and to learn why immune dysregulation happens in autoimmunity, poorly healing wounds, and chronic infections.

  • Alicia H. Chang

    Alicia H. Chang

    Instructor, Medicine - Infectious Diseases

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests I study infectious diseases in marginalized and vulnerable populations, with a specific focus on gastrointestinal infections and tuberculosis. My projects include assessing outcomes in patients, elucidating determinants of active tuberculosis, and studying the effects of chronic disease and co-infections and host immune response.

  • Daniel DiGiulio

    Daniel DiGiulio

    Clinical Instructor, Medicine - Infectious Diseases

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research uses cultivation-independent methods to investigate human-associated microbiota during health and disease. This work exploits high-throughput molecular approaches to characterize stereotypic patterns of microbial prevalence, diversity and abundance associated with specific clinical syndromes of interest. I am especially interested in identifying and enumerating cultivation-resistant pathogens causing cryptic infections, particularly intra-amniotic infections leading to preterm birth.

  • Shirit Einav

    Shirit Einav

    Assistant Professor of Medicine (Infectious Diseases) and of Microbiology and Immunology

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests My lab's goals are to better understand virus-host protein interactions, identify host partners conservatively required by multiple viruses, and develop broad-spectrum host-centered antiviral approaches with a high genetic barrier for resistance. We combine novel proteomic approaches, including microfluidics platforms, with molecular virology, biochemical, and genomic approaches to achieve these goals. We focus on viruses from the Flaviviridae family (hepatitis C and dengue), as well as HIV.
