    Tessa Andermann

    Postdoctoral Medical fellow, Infectious Diseases

    Bio I have a background in the execution of molecular biology research as a former laboratory technician for 5 years during and following my undergraduate degree in molecular, cellular, and developmental biology. I also have a background in epidemiology and statistics through my MPH at UC Berkeley during which time I mastered the application of meta-analysis and systematic review techniques to infectious diseases topics, in particular in my masters thesis on HIV directly observed therapy. In addition, my years at Stanford as an internal medicine resident, infectious diseases fellow, and immunocompromised infectious diseases fellow have further developed my desire to address important translational questions that will improve the clinical outcomes of the patients that I care for on the stem cell transplant service. I hope to find therapies that might safely and effectively supplement and even take the place of antibiotics for prophylaxis and treatment of GVHD and infectious complications.

  • Jason Andrews

    Jason Andrews

    Assistant Professor of Medicine (Infectious Diseases) and, by courtesy, of Health Research and Policy (Epidemiology)

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our laboratory aims to develop and test innovative approaches to the diagnosis, treatment and control of infectious diseases in resource-limited settings. We draw upon multiple fields including mathematical modeling, microbial genetics, field epidemiology, statistical inference and biodesign to work on challenging problems in infectious diseases, with an emphasis on tuberculosis and tropical diseases.

  • Niaz Banaei

    Niaz Banaei

    Associate Professor of Pathology and of Medicine (Infectious Diseases) at the Stanford University Medical Center

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests His research interests include (1) development, assessment, and improvement of novel infectious diseases diagnostics, (2) enhancing the quality of C. difficile diagnostic results, and (3) characterization of M. tuberculosis virulence determinants.

    Current Role at Stanford Research Associate in the Department of Microbiology & Immunology studying the microbial communities associated with humans and marine mammals.

  • Brian Blackburn, MD

    Brian Blackburn, MD

    Clinical Associate Professor, Medicine - Infectious Diseases

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests My interests include parasitology and global health; I've investigated cryptosporidium and angiostrongylus outbreaks; schistosoma/strongyloides seroprevalence in refugees, and the distribution and impact of ITNs for malaria and filariasis prevention in Nigeria and India. I have done clinical and programmatic work at teaching hospitals in Liberia and Bangladesh and have opportunities for research in Bangladesh and Kenya, in collaboration with ICDDR,B and CDC, Kenya

  • Catherine Blish

    Catherine Blish

    Assistant Professor of Medicine (Infectious Diseases)

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests The major goal of our research is to gain insight into the prevention and control of HIV and other viral pathogens by studying the interplay between the virus and the host immune response. We investigate the role of various arms of the immune response, but with a particular focus on NK cells. We hope to gain additional insights into control of infectious diseases by studying how pregnancy modulates immune responses.

  • Paul Bollyky

    Paul Bollyky

    Assistant Professor of Medicine (Infectious Diseases) and of Microbiology and Immunology

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our lab studies how immune responses are regulated within chronically inflamed or infected tissues. In particular, we study how the extracellular matrix influences local immunity and why these responses are dysregulated in autoimmune diseases, poorly healing wounds, and chronic infections.
    We welcome research students with interests in immunology, structural biology, and microbiology.

  • Edward Brooks, MD

    Edward Brooks, MD

    Clinical Associate Professor, Medicine - Infectious Diseases

    Bio Dr. Edward Brooks specializes in the treatment of HIV infection, hepatitis C infection, and sexually transmitted infections and has been certified as an HIV specialist by the American Academy of HIV Medicine since 2006. He has a special interest in HIV prevention through the use of pre-exposure prophylaxis, (PrEP), and is actively involved in educational and community efforts to raise awareness and expand access to this important intervention.
