Justin Odegaard MD, PhD

Resident, Stanford Department of Pathology

Education:
Undergraduate: Duke University
Medical School: Stanford Medical School
Graduate School: Stanford University

Current research focus: Inflammation, macrophage biology, and how these tie into disparate homeostatic and disease processes. One current focus of investigation is the contribution of alternatively activated macrophages to schistosomal infection and bladder carcinogenesis using both basic science and clinical research approaches.

Opportunities to work with Dr. Justin Odegaard: I welcome both medical and undergraduate students to work with me on research.
