Dr. Maya Kasowski is a clinical pathologist and assistant professor in the Departments of Medicine, Pathology, and Genetics (by courtesy) at Stanford. She completed her MD-PhD training at Yale University and her residency training and a post-doctoral fellowship in the Department of Genetics at Stanford University. Dr. Kasowski's experiences as a clinical pathologist and genome scientist have made her passionate about applying cutting-edge technologies to primary patient specimens in order to characterize disease pathologies at the molecular level.

The core focus of the Kasowski Lab is to study the mechanisms by which genetic variants influence the risk of disease through effects on intermediate molecular phenotypes.
