Sean Mackey, M.D., Ph.D.
Redlich Professor and Professor, by courtesy, of Neurology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Functional neuroimaging of pain. Imaging of cognitive and affective dimensions of pain, neural plasticity contributing to chronic pain and effects of treatment.
Effects of membrane stabilizing medications on neuropathic pain.
Chronic pain outcomes tools development and measurement.
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.
Ravindra Majeti MD, PhD
Assistant Professor of Medicine (Hematology)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Ravindra Majeti focuses on the molecular characterization and therapeutic targeting of leukemia stem cells in human hematologic disorders, particularly acute myeloid leukemia (AML LSC). A major focus is the identification of cell surface molecules preferentially expressed on LSC and the development of therapeutic monoclonal antibodies targeting these proteins. Toward this goal, together with Irv Weissman, the lab is actively developing an anti-CD47 antibody for clinical trials in human AML.
Assistant Professor (Research) of Radiology (General Radiology)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our research centers on developing and applying proteomics and systems biology approaches to quantitatively describe organisms' physiologic states towards the goal of enabling personalized, predictive medicine. As part of this effort we are trying to characterize the diverse states of cells (using proteomic and transcriptomic methods) and how signals describing those states are propagated from molecular and cellular length scales to tumor and organismic length scales.
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
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.
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
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.
