  • Yu-Chen Lo

    Yu-Chen Lo

    Research Data Analyst, Pediatrics - Hematology/Oncology

    Bio My primary research interest are in the development and application of computational approaches to drug discovery, drug design and target prediction. I have pioneered new computational approaches to determine drug actions based on chemical networks ( and applied this method to discover new drugs inhibiting cell divisions and cancers. My current research at the Altman's lab focuses on developing novel computational methods for predicting drug actions, interactions, side-effects and drug repurposing. By correlating low-level structural data with high-level functional biology and clinical outcomes, I will apply system-based approach to engineer safe and effective medicine for disease treatments.

  • Adrienne H. Long, MD, PhD

    Adrienne H. Long, MD, PhD

    Fellow in Pediatrics - Hematology & Oncology

    Bio Adrienne Long, MD, PhD is a fellow in the Division of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology at the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford. Dr. Long attend Northwestern University, where she earned both a BS in biomedical engineering and her MD. Driven by a clinical interest in pediatric oncology and the recognized need for novel treatment approaches, she chose to pursue a PhD studying CAR T cells at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) with Dr. Crystal Mackall. Her thesis work was the first to identify T cell exhaustion as a critical factor limiting efficacy of CAR T cell therapies (Long et al., Nature Medicine, 2015). She also worked on novel methods to enhance CAR T cell therapies for pediatric solid tumors (Long/Highfill et al., Cancer Immunology Research, 2016). Dr. Long went on to complete her pediatrics residency training at Boston Children’s Hospital, where she continued her research in cancer immunology with Dr. Nicholas Haining – this time focusing on strategies to enhance antigen presentation to augment PD1 blockade (Long et al. presented at the Keystone Symposium on Cancer Immunotherapy, 2019). She remains dedicated to a career as a physician-scientist focused on developing novel immunotherapies for children with cancer.
