  • Lester Mackey

    Lester Mackey

    Assistant Professor of Statistics and, by courtesy, of Computer Science

    Bio My current research interests include statistical machine learning, high-dimensional statistics, algorithms and data structures, and concentration inequalities. Lately, I've been developing and analyzing algorithms for ranking, admixtures, matrix factorization, and collaborative filtering and crafting concentration inequalities for random matrices. I'm also organizing a working group on Statistics for Social Good. My interest lies, more generally, in problems that bridge applications and theory and that involve drawing inferences from large, structured datasets.

    Quixotic though it may sound, I hope to use computer science and statistics to change the world for the better. If you have thoughts on how to do this, feel free to contact me.

  • Holden Maecker

    Holden Maecker

    Associate Professor (Research) of Microbiology and Immunology

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests I'm interested in immune monitoring of T cell responses to chronic pathogens such as CMV, and the correlation of T cell response signatures with disease protection.

  • Yvonne Maldonado

    Yvonne Maldonado

    Professor of Pediatrics (Infectious Diseases) and of Health Research and Policy

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research focuses on epidemiologic aspects of viral vaccines and perinatal HIV infection. This includes the molecular epidemiology of factors affecting the immunogenicity of oral polio vaccine (OPV) in developing areas of the world, and now the epidemiology of transmission and circulation of vaccine derived polioviruses in order to assist in global eradication of polio. I also work in development of methods to prevent breastfeeding transmission of HIV in Africa.

  • Sanjay V. Malhotra, PhD

    Sanjay V. Malhotra, PhD

    Associate Professor (Research) of Radiation Oncology (Radiation and Cancer Biology)

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interests focus on the design and discovery of synthetic, and natural product inspired small molecules which can be used as probes for developing understanding of biological phenomena, including protein-protein interactions and modulation of signal transduction pathways. My laboratory employs the tools of synthetic medicinal chemistry, molecular modeling and chemical biology for translational research in drug discovery, development, imaging and radiation.

  • Neyssa Marina

    Neyssa Marina

    Professor of Pediatrics (Hematology/Oncology) at the Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Germ cell tumors and bone sarcomas.

  • M. Peter Marinkovich, MD

    M. Peter Marinkovich, MD

    Associate Professor of Dermatology

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests The Marinkovich lab studies the function of epithelial extracellular matrix molecules, including integrins, collagens and laminins in epithelial development and carcinoma progression. We apply our discoveries in this area towards development of molecular therapies for carcinomas, hair disease and inherited epithelial adhesive disorders.

  • Olivia Martinez

    Olivia Martinez

    Professor (Research) of Surgery (Transplantation)

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Host-Pathogen interactions; EBV B cell lymphomas; pathways of immune evasion in the growth and survival of EBV B cell lymphomas; mechanisms of graft rejection and tolerance induction; stem cell and solid organ transplantation.

  • Peter G Maxim

    Peter G Maxim

    Assistant Professor of Radiation Oncology (Radiation Physics) at the Stanford University Medical Center

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests My personal vision is the development of advanced, curative radiation therapy for all types and stages of malignancies, and new indications such as cardiovascular illnesses that will lead to increased survival worldwide from the top cancer and non-cancer causes of mortality.

  • Jennifer A McNab

    Jennifer A McNab

    Assistant Professor (Research) of Radiology (General Radiology)

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research is focused on developing magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques that probe the structural and functional micro-architecture of the brain. This requires new MRI contrast mechanisms, strategic encoding and reconstruction schemes, physiological monitoring, brain tissue modeling and validation. Applications of these methods include neurodevelopment, plasticity, aging, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis and many other neurological conditions.

  • Elizabeth Mellins

    Elizabeth Mellins

    Professor of Pediatrics (Human Gene Therapy) at the Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Molecular mechanisms and intracellular pathways of antigen processing and presentation; structure/function of HLA-DR,-DM, -DO; mechanisms underlying HLA allele association with disease; disease mechanisms in systemic idiopathic juveile arthritis, recently found to be an HLA-linked disease.
