COVID-19: A Conversation from the Front Line
Dr. Jonathan Graf, Dr. Meghan Marmor and Dr. Erin Gordon

We all have questions about what is really happening on the front lines of medicine right now. Sherith Israel is lucky to have a few experts who will spend some time talking about what they are seeing, working on, and planning for in their fields. Interviewed by our very own Dr. Jonathan Graf, this is sure to be an informative opportunity to hear from and ask questions of doctors from our community.

Dr. Jonathan Graf is a professor of medicine at the University of California at San Francisco and a practicing internist and rheumatologist at Zuckerberg San Francisco General and UCSF Medical Centers. He specializes in autoimmune and rheumatic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and is the director of the UCSF Rheumatoid Arthritis cohort. His research focuses in part on rheumatoid arthritis and the relationship between chronic inflammation and heart disease. He also studies biomarkers and precision guided therapy in the treatment of autoimmune diseases. He graduated summa cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania, where he also received a medical degree. He did his residency in internal medicine and fellowship in rheumatology at UCSF and joined the faculty in 2003. He has won numerous UCSF teaching awards and been elected a UCSF Department  of Medicine Master Clinician. He is married to Rabbi Jessica Zimmerman Graf.


Dr. Meghan Marmor is board certified in pulmonary and critical care medicine. She completed her undergraduate studies in microbiology and chemistry as well as medical education at University of Arizona in Tucson. She did her residency in internal medicine at Brown University and specialty training in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at Stanford. Dr. Marmor is now a Clinical Assistant Professor of Medicine in the department of Pulmonary, Allergy and Critical Care Medicine at Stanford University, with a subspecialty focus in bronchiectasis and chronic lung infections. She is a clinical educator for medical students, residents and fellows. Dr. Marmor serves as a member of the Stanford COVID-19 Critical Care Task Force, has written multiple COVID protocols for ICU’s, currently lead the Stanford Chest Clinic’s COVID-19 response team, and have been caring for COVID-19 patients in the Bay Area.
Dr. Erin Gordon is a physician-scientist with an interest in airway epithelial dysfunction in asthma. Specifically, her lab focuses on understanding how genetic risk variants that are associated with asthma at a population level, actually confer risk of disease at a molecular level. They use novel techniques such as conditionally reprogrammed primary airway epithelial cells, CRISPR gene deletion, and biospecimens from large numbers of human subjects to discover the function of genes associated with asthma and elucidate the causal single nucleotide polymorphism. These efforts are designed to uncover novel drug targets and define the subpopulation of asthmatics most likely to benefit from therapy.
