Tze Leung Lai
Ray Lyman Wilbur Professor and Professor, by courtesy, of Biomedical Data Science
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Research interests include clinical trial design, cancer biostatistics, survival analysis, adaptation and sequential experimentation, change-point detection and segmentation, stochastic optimization, time series and inference on stochastic processes, hidden Markov models and genomic applications.
Philip W. Lavori
Professor of Biomedical Data Science, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Biostatistics, clinical trials, longitudinal studies, casual inference from observational studies, genetic tissue banking, informed consent. Trial designs for dynamic (adaptive) treatment regimes, psychiatric research, cancer.
Laura C. Lazzeroni, Ph.D.
Professor (Research) of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and of Biomedical Data Science
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Statistics/Data Science. I develop & apply models, methods & algorithms for complex data in medical science & biology. I am also interested in the interplay between fundamental statistical properties (e.g. variability, bias, p-values) & how scientists actually use & interpret data. My work in statistical genetics includes: the invention of Plaid bi-clustering for gene expression data; methods for twin, association, & family studies; multiple testing & estimation for high dimensional arrays.
Quynh-Thu Le, MD
Katharine Dexter McCormick and Stanley McCormick Memorial Professor and Professor, by courtesy, of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery (OHNS)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My laboratory research interest focuses on the identification of biomarkers for prognosis in patients with head & neck or lung cancers. I am also conducting a number of clinical trials specifically in patients with head & neck cancers.
Associate Professor of Medicine (Endocrinology) and, by courtesy, of Epidemiology and Population Health
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am a clinical scientist (PhD epidemiology), endocrinologist, and CMO at VAPA Cooperative Studies Program Coordinating Center . My group does pattern and prediction mapping along the life-course of interventions/outcomes and how healthcare system can positively impact health longitudinally. We use novel molecular epi, 'big' data like EHRs with advanced new designs/methods/technologies. These interests cut across multiple complex chronic diseases, aging, & critical lifespan stages.
Associate Professor of Urology and, by courtesy, of Medicine (Nephrology)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our research aims to improve the global quality of care for patients with Urologic Cancer with a particular focus on kidney cancer. We are investigating novel proteomic platforms and assays to diagnose kidney cancer and predict response to therapy. We are evaluating the comparative effectiveness of various kidney cancer surgeries and their impact on chronic kidney disease and its downstream effects. We are applying epidemiology, bioinformatics, and health services methods to urologic conditions.
Professor of Radiology (Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford/Nuclear Medicine) and, by courtesy, of Physics, of Electrical Engineering and of Bioengineering
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Molecular Imaging Instrumentation
Our research interests involve the development of novel instrumentation and software algorithms for in vivo imaging of cellular and molecular signatures of disease in humans and small laboratory animal subjects.
Ronald Levy, MD
Robert K. and Helen K. Summy Professor in the School of Medicine
