  • Anuja Anand Sathe

    Anuja Anand Sathe

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Oncology

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am interested in understanding the determinants of therapeutic resistance in cancer. I investigate the composition of the tumor microenvironment and adaptive responses to therapy using single-cell RNA sequencing.

  • Lidia Schapira

    Lidia Schapira

    Professor of Medicine (Oncology)

    Bio I am a medical oncologist focused on breast cancer and cancer survivorship. My career goal is to improve outcomes and experiences of patients and caregivers living with and beyond cancer, and my research and scholarship have contributed to understanding and meeting the needs of the growing population of cancer survivors. My editorial work for the Journal of Clinical Oncology has given me the opportunity to shape the discourse in oncology and as Editor-in-Chief of Cancer.Net I can bring high quality information about cancer to the lay public.

  • Joseph Schroers-Martin

    Joseph Schroers-Martin

    Postdoctoral Medical Fellow, Oncology

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Medical heme/onc focused on molecular cancer diagnostics and novel biomarkers.

  • Sumit Shah

    Sumit Shah

    Clinical Assistant Professor, Medicine - Oncology

    Bio Dr. Sumit Shah specializes in the management of advanced urologic malignancies such as prostate, kidney, bladder, and testicular cancers. He also serves as an investigator on numerous clinical trials, with a focus on novel immunotherapy agents. His academic interests also include digital health technologies and novel healthcare delivery services, both in the domestic and international setting. Dr. Shah graduated with distinction in biomedical engineering from Duke University, received his medical doctorate from Stanford University, and Masters in Public Health from Harvard University. He completed his internal medicine residency at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) where he stayed on faculty for one year before returning to Stanford for his fellowship training in medical oncology, where he now serves on the faculty.

  • Shagufta Shaheen

    Shagufta Shaheen

    Clinical Assistant Professor, Medicine - Oncology

    Bio Dr. Shaheen specializes in the gastrointestinal malignancies and she has expertise in treating neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). Following her fellowship in Hematology and Oncology, Dr Shaheen completed an advanced fellowship in Neuroendocrine tumors from Stanford University. The NET advanced fellowship is first of its kind in United State started under the leadership of Dr Pamela Kunz who is the founding Director of the Stanford Neuroendocrine Tumor Program established in 2015. After completing her advanced fellowship, Dr Shaheen joined Stanford Oncology division as Clinical Assistant Professor. Dr Shaheen is involved in further developing the neuroendocrine oncology program at Stanford which serves as a centre of excellence in the treatment of neuroendocrine tumors. Dr Shaheen is actively involved in clinical research and clinical trials. Dr Shaheen is also involved in taking care of patients admitted to the oncology service as well as resident and fellow teaching.

  • Mohammad Shahrokh Esfahani

    Mohammad Shahrokh Esfahani

    Instructor, Medicine - Oncology

    Bio My expertise is in developing machine learning tools for high dimensional data. In particular, I develop Bayesian models, where 'prior knowledge', from external sources or inherent to the data set in hand, can be converted into mathematical terms (i.e. prior probabilities). I have recently focused on analyzing genetic and epigenetic signals in cell-free DNA assays. Traditional (computational) methods in cancer genomics are limited when signal to noise ratio is ultra-low which is often the case in cfDNA analyses. Therefore, there is a growing need to develop novel and more powerful methods to overcome this limitation.

  • Branimir I. Sikic, M. D.

    Branimir I. Sikic, M. D.

    Professor of Medicine (Oncology)

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Research Interests: cancer pharmacology, mechanisms of resistance to anticancer drugs, regulation and function of MDR1 and tubulin genes, CD47 as a target for activation of anticancer macrophases, Phase I trials of new drugs, gene expression profiling of cancers

  • Michael Spinner

    Michael Spinner

    Instructor, Medicine - Oncology

    Bio Dr. Michael Spinner received his undergraduate degree in music (classical guitar performance) from Emory University, received his medical degree from Vanderbilt University, and completed his internal medicine residency and hematology/oncology fellowship at Stanford University Medical Center. As a medical student, Michael participated in the National Institutes of Health Medical Research Scholars Program, working with Dr. Steven Holland on characterizing a novel immunodeficiency and bone marrow failure disorder resulting from germline GATA2 mutations (GATA2 deficiency). This work led to a new clinical protocol to better understand the natural history of GATA2 deficiency, a highly cited publication in Blood, and an NIH Merit Award for outstanding clinical research. At Stanford under the mentorship of Drs. Ranjana Advani, Robert Lowsky, and Peter Greenberg, Michael's research has focused on therapeutic clinical trials for patients with blood cancers, including studies of novel immunotherapies, cellular therapies, and precision medicine approaches using genomics and ex vivo drug sensitivity screening to inform personalized therapy. Under Dr. Advani?s mentorship, Michael has developed particular expertise in the management of Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphomas and the use of novel immunotherapies and biologically-focused therapies to treat these disorders. Michael currently sees patients with lymphoma in the Stanford Cancer Center and is actively involved in multiple clinical trials and translational research collaborations. Outside of medicine, Michael is an avid classical guitarist with a passion for classical music and jazz.
