Associate Professor of Medicine (Oncology) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Wakelee's research is focused on clinical trials in patients with lung cancer and other thoracic malignancies such as thymoma and thymic carcinoma. She also works with novel agents for all malignancies as part of the developmental therapeutics group of the cancer center. Other interests include translation projects in thoracic malignancies and collaborations with population scientists regarding lung cancer questions.
Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering
Bio Our research program aspires to understand and quantify genetic principles involved in cancer, aging and cell culture engineering. Specifically, we are studying how co-expression of multiple genes over a range of expression levels determines cell proliferation, survival and other phenotypic outcomes. We are plotting genetic europhase diagrams that describe cell fates determined by combinatorial gene expression. To achieve these objectives, we are developing genetic tools that allow us to control gene expression and quantify phenotypic outcome. As engineers, we hope to use our tools to optimize groups of genes, pathways, or cell properties. Positions available.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests Cancer Epidemiology
Assistant Professor of Dermatology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The Wang lab takes an interdisciplinary approach to studying fundamental mechanisms controlling gene expression in mammalian cells, and how epigenetic mechanisms such as DNA methylation, chromatin modifications, and RNA influence chromatin dynamics to affect gene regulation.
Shan X. Wang
Professor of Materials Science and Engineering and of Electrical Engineering and, by courtesy, of Radiology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Wang is the Director of Stanford Center for Magnetic Nanotechnology, and the Co-PI of the Stanford Center for Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence. His research interests lie in nanotechnology and information storage, including magnetic/spintronic biochips, in vitro diagnostics, cell sorting, magnetic nanoparticles, nano-patterning, spin electronic materials and sensors, as well as magnetic integrated inductors and transformers.
Klaus Bensch Professor in Experimental Pathology, Emerita
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The main focus of our research is to understand how cells maintain genome integrity by checkpoint mechanisms during chromosome replication.
Professor of Surgery (General Surgery) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Clinical trials in operative procedures such as Nipple-sparing mastectomy, arm lymphatic mapping, skin perfusion and Treatments for Breast Cancer, especially local recurrence. Dr. Wapnir is institutional Principal Investigator and Chair for National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project (NSABP) clinical trials. Laboratory and translational research includes exploring the activity of breast iodide transporter in breast cancer brain metastasis.
