About Stanford University

Stanford was founded in 1885 by Leland Stanford, former governor of and U.S. Senator from California and leading railroad tycoon, and his wife, Jane Lathrop Stanford, in memory of their only child, Leland Stanford, Jr., who had died of typhoid fever at age 15 the previous year. Stanford was opened on October 1, 1891 as a coeducational and non-denominational institution. Tuition was free until 1920. The university struggled financially after Leland Stanford's 1893 death and after much of the campus was damaged by the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. Following World War II, Provost Frederick Terman supported faculty and graduates' entrepreneurialism to build self-sufficient local industry in what would later be known as Silicon Valley. By 1970, Stanford was home to a linear accelerator, and was one of the original four ARPANET nodes (precursor to the Internet).

    Richard B. Moss

    Richard B. Moss, MD, is former chief of the Pediatric Pulmonary and Allergy Divisions, and allergy-immunology and pulmonary fellowship training programs director, at Stanford University. He was educated at Columbia (BA), SUNY Downstate (MD), Northwestern/Children’s Memorial Hospital (pediatrics residency) and Stanford (allergy-immunology, pulmonology fellowships). He was Director of the Cystic Fibrosis Center at Stanford (1991-2009) and site principal investigator for the Cystic Fibrosis Therapeutics Development Network (1999-2009), where he was also inaugural Chair of the Protocol Review Committee. He currently is a member of Stanford’s Child Health Research Institute, serves on the Pediatric Mentoring Program at Stanford, the Executive Committee of Stanford’s NIH clinical research program (Spectrum Child Health) and the Stanford IRB. Dr. Moss has reviewed and consulted for the NIH, CFF, national and international foundations, peer-review journals and biopharmaceutical companies. His research interests include pathogenesis, outcome measures, and treatment of chronic airway diseases of childhood. Recent work has focused on allergic fungal lung disease.

    Olivier Gevaert

    The Gevaert lab focuses on biomedical data fusion in oncology: the development of machine learning methods for biomedical decision support using multi-scale biomedical data. Previously I pioneered data fusion work using Bayesian and kernel methods studying breast and ovarian cancer. My subsequent work concerned the development of methods for multi-omics data fusion. This resulted in the development of MethylMix, to identify differentially methylation driven genes, and AMARETTO, a computational method to integrate DNA methylation, copy number and gene expression data to identify cancer modules. Additionally, my lab focuses on multi-scale data fusion by linking omics with cellular and tissue-level phenotypes. This led to key contributions in the field of imaging genomics/radiogenomics involving work in lung cancer and brain tumors. Our work in imaging genomics is focused on developing a framework for non-invasive personalized medicine. In summary, my lab has an interdisciplinary focus on developing novel algorithms for multi-scale biomedical data fusion.

    Biren Prasad

    Brian Prasad is known best for delivering many innovative, efficient and practical knowledge-based engineering (KBE) solutions to product design and development using off-the-self product life-cycle management (PLM) tools (like CATIA or NX) for aerospace & automotive companies. He is a notable architect of knowledge-based lean product development (KLPD) technology/ solutions for doing more with leaner resources. He is author of several books, and the Editor-in-Chief of the most premier Int. Journal of Concurrent Engineering. http://cer.sagepub.com/ Along with outstanding technical skills, he is well-recognized thought leader and an International authority on the subjects of knowledge-based development, Knowledge management & reuse. He has achieved great successes in reengineering company’s life-cycle processes, and concurrently developing lean product development (LPD) solutions for its products; thereby, significantly reducing its (enterprise) development time and costs. He has written books on knowledge-based engineering (KBE), CE & LPD subjects and has published numerous papers in many refereed journals and conferences. http://brianprasad.weebly.com/my-publications.html Most recently, he received the Distinguished Engineering Merit Award from Orange County Engineering Council (OCEC), during the National Engineers’ Week Awards Banquet, held on February 22, 2013. A year before, CATIA Operator Exchange (COE) Forum awarded him with B.J. Fries Award of Merit at the COE conference in April 2012. http://brianprasad.weebly.com/my-awards.html

    Dr. Prasad holds a Ph.D. degree in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from Illinois Institute of Technology, Illinois, Chicago. He also graduated from the Stanford University, School of Engineering with a Degree of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering.
