Room: S 214-216
Hayley A. Gans, MD, FPIDS, Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford University Medical Center, Stanford, CA

Hayley Gans is an Associate Professor in the Division of Infectious Diseases. She completed her M.D. at SUNY Health Sciences in Syracuse, followed by Pediatric residency and Pediatric Infectious Diseases fellowship at Stanford University. After completing her training, Dr. Gans joined the Division of Infectious Diseases, where her effort is split between clinical, teaching and research activities. Dr. Gans’ research involves delineating the ontogeny of human infant immune responses to viral antigens, using measles, mumps, varicella and polio vaccine as model antigens to stimulate the developing immune system. Her main focus is on cell mediated immunity and antigen presentation. She has also been involved with studies evaluating subcutaneous versus aerosol administration of measles vaccine given to Mexico children. In addition, other studies include a comparison of one versus two doses of varicella, and IPV immunity in term versus preterm infants. Furhter, Dr. Gans has T cell phenotypes and antige-specific memory T cell immune responses to viral vaccines in HIV infected adults and in infected children. In addition, Dr. Gans is studying T cell immunity and viral immunology in pediatric liver transplant recipients, and outcomes of EBV, CMV and adenovirus in pediatric solid organ transplant recipients. Dr. Gans also participates actively in the clinical service, serving as the inpatient pediatric infectious diseases attending 6 weeks per year. As part of her passion, she is dedicated to the education of residents and fellows and is involved with many teaching venues, including a grant writing workshop and mentorship program through the Child Health Research Program. Dr. Gans also currently serves as Associate Fellowship Director for her division and is the Director of Fellowship Education in the Pediatric Department. In this latter role she has developed a core curriculum and Fellow Well-being Program.
