DREAM is headed by administrative division director Juliet Lee, who says, "I am enthusiastic about the launch of DREAM and the opportunity to work alongside the centers and units of the Department of Medicine. DREAM is committed to collaborating closely with center leadership to execute their strategic visions, fostering their growth and expansion, and collectively, contributing to the long-term goal of elevating the Department of Medicine into a billion-dollar venture."
Before joining the department, Juliet served as director of finance and administration (DFA) of Stanford Impact Labs, a university-wide initiative that trains and invests in researchers working to design, test, and scale interventions that address the world’s most pressing social challenges. Prior to Stanford Impact Labs, Juliet worked in the Stanford Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine and the division of pediatric cardiology.
“This is an exciting moment for the department. I am confident that DREAM will contribute great value to the department and to each of the programs and centers within the new division,” said interim department chair Bonnie Maldonado, MD.
