Leppert Lab in the department of urology

Welcome to the Leppert Lab

Our research aims to improve the global quality of care for patients with Urologic conditions, with a particular focus on kidney cancer. We are evaluating the comparative effectiveness of various kidney cancer surgeries and their impact on chronic kidney disease and its downstream effects. We are investigating nanofluidic proteomic assays to diagnose kidney cancer and identify signatures of response to therapy. We are also applying epidemiology, bioinformatics, and health services methods to urologic conditions. Finally, we are evaluating technologies that are applicable to endoscopic, laparoscopic, and robotic surgery.

We are part of the Department of Urology in the School of Medicine at Stanford University and are members of the Stanford Cancer Institute, the Bio-X program, and the Stanford Kidney Cancer Research Program.
