Jean Y. Tang MD PhD
Associate Professor of Dermatology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research focuses on 2 main areas:
1. Skin cancer:
- New therapeutics to treat and prevent non-melanoma skin cancer, especially by targeting the Hedgehog signaling pathway for BCC tumors
- Genomic analysis of drug-resistant cancers
- Identifying risk factors for skin cancer in the Women's Health Initiative
2. Epidermolysis Bullosa: gene therapy and protein therapy to replace defective/absent Collagen 7 in children and adults with Recessive Dystrophic EB
Melinda L. Telli, M.D.
Assistant Professor of Medicine (Oncology) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research focuses on breast cancer treatment and survivorship. My primary research interest is the development of novel strategies for the treatment of early stage triple-negative and BRCA1/2 mutation-associated breast cancer. Other areas of interest include prevention of cardiac damage associated with breast cancer treatment and cardiotoxicity of anti-cancer agents.

Antigenic specificities of human antibodies encoded by the VH4-34 gene
Avnesh S Thakor, MD PhD
Assistant Professor of Radiology (Pediatric Radiology) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Over the past decade there has been tremendous advances in the field of Interventional Oncology with the clinical utilization of multiple new innovative locoregional therapies (i.e. chemoembolization, percutaneous ablation). Looking forward, our ability to superselectively deliver new therapies such as nanoparticles, stem cells and gene therapy will open new pathways for Interventional Radiology into the emerging field of Regenerative Medicine.
Postdoctoral Research fellow, Stanford Cancer Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Whilst cancer is first a disease of unregulated cell proliferation, a small proportion of cells within a tumour are paradoxically in a relative state of quiescence. These chemotherapy-resistant cells are the likely culprits responsible for relapse but the signalling events that control this state are unknown. By studying purified populations of cancer stem cells derived from patients with acute myeloid leukemia my work is focused on defining novel targets for future therapy.
Professor of Biomedical Data Science and of Statistics
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research is in applied statistics and biostatistics. I specialize in computer-intensive methods for regression and classification, bootstrap, cross-validationand statistical inference, and signal and image analysis for medical diagnosis.
Clare J. Twist
Associate Professor of Pediatrics (Hematology/Oncology) at the Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My primary research interest is in the study and treatment of neuroblastoma. My clinical interests also include Wilms tumor, hepatoblastoma, post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorders, phase I therapies for hematologic malignancies, as well as palliative and end of life care.
