Darvin Scott Smith
Casual - Academic Staff, Microbiology and Immunology
Bio Darvin (Scott) Smith graduated in biochemistry from Bowdoin College in Maine and went on to study tropical public health at Harvard School of Public health before attending medical school in his home state of Colorado, where he grew up. He worked on developing diagnostic tests and epidemiology (Leishmania and Onchocerciasis) in Cali Colombia on a Fulbright scholarship before finally moving to California where he completed residency at Stanford Medical School, then a Fellowship in Infectious Disease & Geographic Medicine. He now serves as Chief of the Dept of Infectious Disease at Kaiser Permanente in Redwood City California, and he teaches several classes at Stanford.
Scott volunteers as a community neighborhood network lead in Hillsborough and works with international disaster response to vector borne disease threats as a clinical lead for MENTOR-Initiative around the world (Indonesia, Myanmar, Tanzania, Kenya, Haiti, Thailand). Scott enjoys gardening, sustainable household development, photography and wants to do a triathalon...
Biodesign Executive Assistant, School of Medicine - MDRP'S - Biodesign Program
Current Role at Stanford Executive Assistant to

Administrative Director, Teaching and Mentoring Academy, School of Medicine - Student Affairs
Bio Christine Solari, Ed.D., is the Administrative Director of the Stanford Medicine Teaching and Mentoring Academy. In this role she collaborates with the faculty co-directors to oversee all aspects of the Academy's programming, which promotes excellence in teaching and mentoring through grants programs, teaching and mentoring skills training, peer coaching and mentoring programs, and appointments and promotions support.
Prior to this role, Christine served in the School of Medicine first as the Pre-clerkship Curriculum Manager in the Office of Medical Education and then as the Curriculum Administrator in the Registrar's Office. Before arriving at the School of Medicine, Christine held a variety of roles in education. Her classroom teaching experience includes serving as a lecturer at both SFSU and the College of San Mateo, as well as teaching in SFSU's Educational Opportunity Program's Summer Bridge. Her administrative experience includes serving as the Associate Director of California Campus Compact, a statewide membership organization that supports colleges and universities as they engage students in service learning, building bridges between their academic study and its application to real world problems. Additionally, she served as the director of Stanford Upward Bound, a federally-funded college access program for low-income high school students who will be the first in their families to attend college. In this role, Christine also taught Education 102: Examining Social Structures, Power and Educational Access to Stanford undergraduates selected as Youth and Education Summer Fellows. Her passion for teaching and educational equity is the common thread that runs through her professional experience.
Christine earned her B.A. in English with minors in Women's Studies and French at U.C. Davis, her M.A. in English Literature with an emphasis on teaching composition at San Francisco State University, and her Ed.D. in Educational Leadership at San Francisco State University. Her doctoral dissertation studied anti-racist teaching at a public high school. Outside of work, Christine is a lifelong student of ballet, a member of the Oakland-based SambaFunk dance group, and part of the teaching team for the Untraining, a facilitator training focused on ending collusion in racism and all forms of oppression.
Director, HTBC, Chemical and Systems Biology Operations
Current Role at Stanford Director, High-Throughput Bioscience Center
The High-Throughput Bioscience Center's mission is to provide researchers at Stanford with the ability to run high-throughput chemical, siRNA, cDNA, and high-content screens for the purpose of drug and/or target discovery. The HTBC is a Stanford University School of Medicine core facility and was created in 2003 by the Department of Chemical and Systems Biology (formerly Molecular Pharmacology). The HTBC is a shared resource (Bioscience Screening Facility) for the Stanford Cancer Institute (more info), the Digestive Disease Center (Chemical Genomics Core), and the NIH Clinical and Translational Science Award (Spectrum).
Research approaches that were previously done exclusively in industry are now being used in academia to advance basic research. This high-throughput screening (HTS) laboratory allows Stanford researchers and others to discover novel modulators of targets that otherwise would not be practical in industry. The center incorporates instrumentation (purchased with NCRR NIH Instrumentation grant numbers S10RR019513 and S10RR026338), databases, compound libraries, and personnel whose previous sole domains were in industry. Among our instrumentation are a Molecular Devices ImageXpress Micro High-Content fluorescence microplate imager, with live cell and phase contrast/brightfield options, a Caliper Life Sciences SciClone ALH3000 and an Agilent Bravo microplate liquid handler, and the Molecular Devices Analyst GT and FlexStation II 384 and Tecan Infinite M1000 PRO fluorescence, luminescence and absorbance multimode microplate readers. We have over 135,000 small molecules for compound screens, 15,000 cDNAs for genomic screens, and the siARRAY whole human genome siRNA library from ThermoFisher Scientific (formerly Dharmacon) targeting 21,000 genes.
The HTBC is located in CCSR Room 0133-North Wing, between the Transgenic Mouse Facility, the Immune Monitoring Core, and the Stanford Functional Genomics Facility.
