Our Team in the News


Imagine what we can do for you

At Stanford Health Care, medical innovation isn’t reserved for only the rarest of diseases. Every day, we bring together the greatest minds to find new ways to both treat and prevent illness—no matter what state of health you’re in.

Harnessing DNA to Diagnose the Undiagnosable

A group of Stanford physicians and researchers is tackling the enigma of rare, undiagnosed diseases by sequencing patients’ whole genomes. The Stanford Center for Undiagnosed Diseases is one of seven clinical sites in the National Institute of Health’s Undiagnosed Diseases Network (UDN).


“I share the same heart condition as Jimmy Kimmel’s son”

Christy Sillman is the nurse coordinator for the Adult Congenital Heart Program at Stanford, a joint program with Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford and Stanford University Medical Center. Christy was born with a type of congenital heart disease known as tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia, and she works to bring awareness to the lifelong care needs for all congenital heart disease patients.

A New Heart Disease Test Flings Color Genomics Into A Battle About Genetics In Medicine

Color Genomics, a Burlingame, Calif.-based startup that has made a name for itself by selling tests for genes that dramatically raise the risk of cancer, is moving into a new area: heart disease. In doing so, it is stepping even more deeply into a raging debate over the medical and economic value of plumbing our DNA.


JAMA Publication Creates Significant Buzz About Familial Hypercholesterolemia

When assistant professor Joshua Knowles, MD, PhD (cardiovascular medicine), identifies a patient with familial hypercholesterolemia, that discovery marks the beginning of a hunt. Even as the new patient undergoes treatment to reduce levels of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) and stave off early atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, a search gets underway for family members...
