Gillian Marie Stanfield, PhD
Assistant Professor, Department of Human Genetics
Gillian Stanfield, PhD, is a research assistant professor in the Department of Human Genetics at the University of Utah and a member of the Cell Response and Regulation Program at Huntsman Cancer Institute.
Stanfield studies a class of molecules called protease inhibitors that may yield direct insights into human disease such as cancer. She uses nematodes (worms) to study these molecules, which could reveal the process whereby cancer cells spread and metastasize.
Stanfield received an artium baccalaureatus degree from the University of Chicago and a PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
