George A. Zimmermann Professor and Professor of Pediatrics
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our laboratory is dedicated to understanding the pathogenesis of autoimmune diseases, particularly multiple sclerosis. We have developed several new therapies for autoimmunity, including some in Phase 2 clinical trials, as well as one approved drug, natalizumab. We have developed microarray technology for detecting autoantibodies to myelin proteins and lipids. We employ a diverse range of molecular and celluar approaches to trying to understand multiple sclerosis.
Professor of Genetics
Current Research and Scholarly Interests We apply diverse genomic approaches to understand how genetic variation affects health and disease by: 1) functional and mechanistic analyses of gene regulation, 2) studies of meiotic recombination and inheritance, 3) analyses of genetic and environmental interactions, and 4) characterization of diseases in human cells and model organisms. We integrate wet lab and computational genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic and metabolic approaches, and develop technologies to enable personalized medicine.

Clinical Assistant Professor, Dermatology
Bio A native of Washington, Dr. Laurel Stevens joined our faculty in August of 2015 as a specialist in both general dermatology and dermatopathology. She received her BS in Cellular and Molecular Biology from the University of Washington and graduated with Summa Cum Laude honors. Currently a member of the American Academy of Dermatology, she received her medical degree from the University Of Rochester School Of Medicine, where she graduated with a Distinction in Research. She completed her Dermatology residency at Emory University in Atlanta and a Fellowship in Dermatopathology at Stanford University. Dr. Stevens’ professional interests include improving patient access and care practices in general dermatology, dermatological urgent care, inpatient consult dermatology, and dermatopathology. Dr. Stevens currently serves as the lead physician for the department’s new Urgent Access clinic.
Clinical Assistant Professor, Pediatrics - General Pediatrics
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Clinical Informatics is the scientific field concerned with the application of information technology to the delivery of healthcare services. In my current role as a lead physician in this department, I work with my colleagues to evaluate the best ways to implement and optimize health information technology to benefit the patients we serve at Stanford Children's Health. Specific areas of focus include: Improving EMR education for clinicians and merging Health IT with medical education.
David A. Stevenson, MD
Associate Professor of Pediatrics (Genetics) at the Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research focuses on disorders of the RAS/MAPK pathway (eg. NF1, Noonan, CFC, and Costello syndrome). I am working on understanding the impact of RAS signaling on the musculoskeletal system. I use genomic approaches to identify somatic events and modifiers in the RASopathies. I am also involved in identifying outcome measures for use in clinical trials for the associated orthopedic manifestations. Other areas of research involve vascular anomalies, Prader-Willi syndrome, and hypophosphatasia.
