    Weidong Cai

    Clinical Associate Professor, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences

    BioMy research focuses on brain mechanisms underlying cognitive deficits in two distinct populations: children with neurodevelopmental disorders, especially kids with ADHD, and elders with neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson's disease. By integrating cognitive, neuroscience, and computational models with advanced functional neuroimaging techniques, my goal is to understand the neurocognitive factors that contribute to typical and atypical brain development and aging.

    Associate Professor of Bioengineering and, by courtesy, of Neurosurgery and of Mechanical Engineering

    BioDavid B. Camarillo is Associate Professor of Bioengineering, (by courtesy) Mechanical Engineering and Neurosurgery at Stanford University. Dr. Camarillo holds a B.S.E in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from Princeton University, a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University and completed postdoctoral fellowships in Biophysics at the UCSF and Biodesign Innovation at Stanford. Dr. Camarillo worked in the surgical robotics industry at Intuitive Surgical and Hansen Medical, before launching his laboratory at Stanford in 2012. His current research focuses on precision human measurement for multiple clinical and physiological areas including the brain, heart, lungs, and reproductive system. Dr. Camarillo has been awarded the Hellman Fellowship, the Office of Naval Research Young Investigator Program award, among other honors including multiple best paper awards in brain injury and robotic surgery. His research has been funded by the NIH, NSF, DoD, as well as corporations and private philanthropy. His lab’s research has been featured on NPR, the New York Times, The Washington Post, Science News, ESPN, and TED.com as well as other media outlets aimed at education of the public.

  • Jennifer Carlson

    Jennifer Carlson

    Clinical Professor, Pediatrics - Adolescent Medicine

    BioJennifer Carlson, MD, is a Clinical Professor of Pediatrics in the division of Adolescent Medicine at Stanford. During her time at Stanford, she has served in a range of both clinical roles (providing care in the ambulatory, inpatient, and consultative services) and educational roles (serving as rotation director, pediatric resident coach, program director for Adolescent Medicine fellowship, member of the Fellows in Adolescent Medicine Learning Initiative (FAMLI)). She has led/collaborated on program initiatives with the goal of improving health access, particularly for the adolescent-aged population. These programs have included the Virtual PrEP clinic, inpatient Reproductive Consultation service, outpatient Joint Reproductive Health clinics, and Eating Disorders Telehealth program.

    In addition to Adolescent Medicine, Dr. Carlson is board-certified in Clinical Informatics. She has served as the Medical Director of Patients Portals since 2016 and is a member of the Epic Adolescent Medicine Steering Board/BrainTrust. In her role as Clinical Informaticist, she has worked to expand and enhance information access for patients and families and published widely on novel approaches to portal development and management of confidentiality within the electronic health record (EHR). She has collaborated on the Epic White paper for managing confidentiality within the EHR and co-authored a multi-organization position statement on the topic.

    Operationally, Dr. Carlson has held positions as physician-at-large for the LPCH Executive committee, Medical Director of the South Bay clinics, and member of the Operations Leadership Steering committee for the hospital.

    Specific areas of interest and scholarship include:
    1)Improving health equity and health access for the pediatric population- particularly for the adolescent and young adult age range- through novel program development (such as Virtual PrEP clinic).
    2)Developing foundational and systemic approaches to managing health information within the EHR to allow for optimal health care for all patients. This includes ensuring that private and confidential information is protected within the electronic health record and non-private information is easily accessible to patients and families.
    3)Improving systems for screening and management of psychosocial factors that affect the health of youth and families (ie, social determinants of health, universal depression screening, etc).

  • Howard Y. Chang, MD, PhD

    Howard Y. Chang, MD, PhD

    Virginia and D. K. Ludwig Professor of Cancer Research, Professor of Genetics and, by courtesy, of Pathology

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsOur research is focused on how the activities of hundreds or even thousands of genes (gene parties) are coordinated to achieve biological meaning. We have pioneered methods to predict, dissect, and control large-scale gene regulatory programs; these methods have provided insights into human development, cancer, and aging.

  • Moses Charikar

    Moses Charikar

    Donald E. Knuth Professor and Professor, by courtesy, of Mathematics

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsEfficient algorithmic techniques for processing, searching and indexing massive high-dimensional data sets; efficient algorithms for computational problems in high-dimensional statistics and optimization problems in machine learning; approximation algorithms for discrete optimization problems with provable guarantees; convex optimization approaches for non-convex combinatorial optimization problems; low-distortion embeddings of finite metric spaces.

  • Akshay Chaudhari

    Akshay Chaudhari

    Assistant Professor (Research) of Radiology (Integrative Biomedical Imaging Informatics at Stanford) and, by courtesy, of Biomedical Data Science

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsDr. Chaudhari is interested in the application of artificial intelligence techniques to all aspects of medical imaging, including automated schedule and reading prioritization, image reconstruction, quantitative analysis, and prediction of patient outcomes. His interests range from developing novel data-efficient machine learning algorithms to clinical deployment and validation of patient outcomes. He is also exploring combining imaging with clinical, natural language, and time series data.

  • Ovijit Chaudhuri

    Ovijit Chaudhuri

    Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering and, by courtesy, of Bioengineering

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsWe study the physics of cell migration, division, and morphogenesis in 3D, as well cell-matrix mechanotransduction, or the process by which cells sense and respond to mechanical properties of the extracellular matrices. For both these areas, we use engineered biomaterials for 3D culture as artificial extracellular matrices.

  • Bertha Chen, MD

    Bertha Chen, MD

    Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology (Gynecology - Urogynecology) and, by courtesy, of Urology

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsDr. Chen’s research examines the molecular causes of urinary incontinence and pelvic floor dysfunction. Recognizing that urinary incontinence linked to demise of smooth muscle sphincter function, she is investigating the potential use of stem cell regeneration to restore muscle capacity.
