Basic Science Research

Our basic science researchers build upon our highly successful clinical care programs and linkages with other researchers throughout the School of Medicine and Stanford University to make fundamental discoveries that will help diagnose, treat and prevent illnesses impacting the health and well being of children. Their laboratories also serve as sites for the training of tomorrow’s clinician-scientists and academic leaders who will innovate and discover new ways of caring for children. The Department of Pediatrics' basic science research is led by Dr. Mark Kay, Associate Chair Basic Research and members of the Department's Research Advisory Committee. More detail is found at Research by Division and Labs.
