Kari Nadeau, MD, PhD
Naddisy Foundation Professor of Pediatric Food Allergy, Immunology and Asthma, Professor of Pediatrics, Senior Fellow at the Woods Institute and Professor, by courtesy, of Otolaryngology and of Epidemiology and Population Health
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Kari Nadeau’s laboratory and clinical research is focused on understanding the role of genes and the environment, including climate change, on the rising incidence of allergies and asthma. By understanding the genetic, epigenetic, cellular, and humoral factors that mediate immune tolerance or allergy to foods, aeroallegens, and air pollutants (e.g., diesel emissions and wildfires), her research is laying the groundwork for potential future therapies to prevent and cure allergies and asthma.

Clinical Assistant Professor, Pediatrics - Gastroenterology
Bio Dr. Namjoshi specializes in the care and support of children with intestinal failure on home parenteral nutrition (PN). Her research interests include long term outcomes for patients on home PN, iron in gastrointestinal diseases, renal and bone health in intestinal failure, clinical pathologic correlates in intestinal failure, and the assessment of congenital enteropathies.
Clinical Professor, Pediatrics - Endocrinology and Diabetes
Bio As a licensed clinical psychologist working in diabetes and Cystic Fibrosis clinics for the past 10 years, Dr. Naranjo focuses on the psychosocial needs of patients and families with diabetes and CF. Through clinical research, she aims to understand barriers and facilitators to diabetes self-management, how families and individuals with diabetes respond to health technology, and how to best provide services that engage youth and their families. She is a member of the Stanford Diabetes Research Center.
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics
Bio Manjari Narayan is a postdoctoral research scholar in the School of Medicine. Her current research interests combine high dimensional statistics, network science & statistical causal inference methods to analyze changes in brain networks either longitudinally or due to experimental perturbations. She received a Ph.D in Electrical Engineering from Rice University in 2016 under the supervision of Dr. Genevera Allen and a B.S in Electrical Engineering from UIUC in 2007. Previously, she was a postdoctoral scholar in Psychiatry under the mentorship of Amit Etkin. Her dissertation work has been recognized by numerous student paper awards including the 2016 ENAR Distinguished Student Paper Award from the International Biometrics Society and the 2013 best paper travel award in Pattern Recognition in Neuroimaging.
Assistant Professor of Pediatrics (Hematology/Oncology)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interests are to study the pathophysiology of ribosomopathies and to translate these insights into the work-up and management of pediatric bone marrow failure syndromes.
Yasodha Natkunam, M.D., Ph.D
Ronald F. Dorfman, MBBch, FRCPath Professor in Hematopathology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interests focus on the identification and characterization of markers of diagnostic and prognostic importance in hematolymphoid neoplasia.
William Wrigley Professor, Senior Fellow at the Woods Institute for the Environment and at the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies and Professor, by courtesy, of Economics
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Research Activities:
My research focuses on the environmental and equity dimensions of intensive food production systems, and the food security dimensions of low-input systems. I have been involved in a number of field-level research projects around the world and have published widely on issues related to climate impacts on agriculture, distributed irrigation systems for diversified cropping, nutrient use and loss in agriculture, biotechnology, aquaculture and livestock production, biofuels development, food price volatility, and food policy analysis.
I teach courses on the world food economy, food and security, aquaculture science and policy, human society and environmental change, and food-water-health linkages. These courses are offered to graduate and undergraduate students through the departments of Earth System Science, Economics, History, and International Relations.

Professor of Medicine (Blood and Marrow Transplantation and Cellular Therapy)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our labaratory focuses on the study of immune recognition by T and NK cells with special emphasis on graft vs host disease and graft vs tumor reactions. We utilize both murine and human systems in an effort to enhance graft vs tumor reactions while controlling graft vs host disease. We have developed bioluminescence models in collaboration with the Contag laboratory to study the trafficking of immune effector cells with a special emphasis on NK, T and regulatory T cells.
Jennifer A. Newberry
Clinical Assistant Professor, Emergency Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Interests include global emergency medicine research, emergency obstetric and neonatal care in low- and middle-income countries, gender-based violence, and the intersection of emergency medicine, social justice, and development goals.
Mindie H. Nguyen, MD, MAS, AGAF, FAASLD
Professor of Medicine (Gastroenterology and Hepatology) and, by courtesy, of Epidemiology and Population Health
Current Research and Scholarly Interests 1. Epidemiology and treatment outcomes of liver cancer focusing on screening, early diagnosis with novel markers, etiologies (viral and nonviral including NALFD).
2. Epidemiology and treatment outcomes of chronic hepatitis B and C focusing on real-world cohorts, understudied populations, and HCV genotypes 4-6.
3. Therapeutic clinical trials for chronic hepatitis B/C and NAFLD.
4. Health disparities and ethnicity-related issues
5. Global health: medical education, public health, and research
Stanford University Professor in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our lab focuses primarily on the contribution of the immune response to lung disease. We are specifically examining the contribution of inflammation to the development of vascular injury in transplantation, pulmonary hypertension and lymphedema.
Addie and Al Macovski Professor in the School of Engineering
Current Research and Scholarly Interests medical imaging, magnetic resonance imaging
Rachford and Carlota Harris Professor
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Nolan's group uses high throughput single cell analysis technology cellular biochemistry to study autoimmunity, cancer, virology (influenza & Ebola), as well as understanding normal immune system function. Using advanced flow cytometric techniques such as Mass Cytometry, MIBI (ion beam imaging), CODEX and computational biology approaches, we focus on understanding disease processes at the single cell level. We have a strong interest in cancer immunotherapy and pathogen-host interactions.
Professor (Research) of Psychology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Vision, development, functional imaging, systems analysis
Virginia and Daniel K. Ludwig Professor in Cancer Research and the Reed-Hodgson Professor in Human Biology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our laboratory studies Wnt signaling in development and disease. We found recently that Wnt proteins are unusual growth factors, because they are lipid-modified. We discovered that Wnt proteins promote the proliferation of stem cells of various origins. Current work is directed at understanding the function of the lipid on the Wnt, using Wnt proteins as factors the expand stem cells and on understanding Wnt signaling during repair and regeneration after tissue injury.
