Born in France, Dr. Gaudilliere studied Engineering at Ecole Polytechnique before completing an MD-PhD degree from the Harvard-MIT Health Sciences and Technology program and a postdoctoral fellowship at Stanford University (Dr. Garry Nolan laboratory). Dr. Gaudilliere is now an Associate Professor at Stanford University and a board-certified Anesthesiologist. Dr. Gaudilliere has over twenty years of experience in basic sciences with expertise in immunology, cell signaling biology and translational application of next-generation, single-cell technologies. Research in the Gaudilliere lab (Gaudillierelab.stanford.edu) combines high parameter mass cytometry (suspension and imaging mass cytometry) with other proteomics approaches to study how the human immune system responds and adapts to physiological or pathological stressors. Ongoing studies focus on several clinical scenarios including, 1) pregnancy, pregnancy complications and infertility (NICHD P01, Gates foundation and March of Dimes foundation), 2) immune mechanisms of surgical recovery and complications (NIGMS R35), 3) immune dysfunction and outcomes prediction in patients with COVID19.

Researchers have long been recognizing the uniqueness of women’s health and its substantial effect on clinical practice, acknowledging the increasing appreciation of the importance of multidisciplinary approaches to health and disease. In every organ system, there are diseases that are unique to women, more common in women than in men, or characterized by differences in disease course in women compared to men. This Track will focus on the following topics related to Women’s Health:
