Amy (Morris) Thomas
Web & Graphic Designer, Radiology
Bio I'm a passionate designer with 19 years of experience in interface, print, and web design. I love to make things look, work, and act more efficiently. Some might call it compulsion...I like to call it passion. My mind and heart are always open to challenging design problems. I thrive on finding innovative solutions to complex situations.
I started my professional career as a Visual Designer at IBM for the Storage Systems Group. My work at IBM involved close interaction with our user experience designers. The team I was on developed a software interface to help facilitate storage administrators in monitoring their storage subsystems. We created an interface that allowed the admin to see storage system status at a glance using a drill down table as well as custom built icons. The work our team completed earned several US Patents.
In March 2008, I began my career at Stanford University School of Medicine. I started as a Temporary Visual Arts Specialist. In November 2010 I was hired on full time as the Web & Graphic Designer for the Department of Radiology. My work at Stanford is very gratifying. I never expected, as an artist, to have my work matter in a way that could help other people. With each new project, I am (in a small way) contributing to the research and development of new and innovative treatments for many of the most damaging diseases. My art helps the great minds of our department explain their thinking, their research, and their findings to others in their field.
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.
