Stephen Quake is a Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Stanford University and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator. His research group pioneered the development of Microfluidic Large Scale Integration (mLSI), which is helping to pave the way for large scale automation of biology at the nanoliter scale, and he and his students have been exploring applications of lab-on-a-chip technology in functional genomics, genetic analysis, and structural biology. Professor Quake is also active in the field of high throughput DNA sequencing technology, with applications in human genetics, immunology, and the development of new clinical diagnostics. He has founded or co-founded several companies, including Fluidigm, Helicos Biosciences, Verinata Health, Quanticel Pharmaceuticals, Moleculo, Cellular Research and Immumetrix.
Potential cancer relevance:
  • Dr. Quake is a member of the Stanford Cancer Institute.
  • He has presented on new technologies used in the understanding and diagnosis of cancer.
  • He has published on single cell profiling of CTCs in breast cancer, radioresistance in cancer stem cells, single-cell dissection of transcriptional heterogeneity in human colon tumors.
  • He is an investigator on Standford’s NCI funded Center for Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence and Translation (Project, Nanotechnologes for Comprehensive Single Cell Cancer Analysis”)
